Sober Since: 10 / 12 / 2015
Sober For: 6 Years & 53 Days
What it was like?
Hell!!! I lived for heroin! Everyday all day I was chasing the drug. I always knew I went overboard when I partied but Heroin broke me completely, I lost everything including my husband of 11 years.
I hit rock bottom couldn't stay out of jail it was crazy. I flew to South Florida after 13 failed attempts in NJ and completed a 30 day inpatient program and lived in sober living. Wish that was the end but I still didn't learn my lesson. I relapsed about another 20 times in 2 years and finally I was going to detox again and found out I was 4 months pregnant during the intake. Surprise!!! I completed detox , the 12 steps and went home to NJ
What it is like now?
I love life!!! I am going on 4 years clean and sober. I have a beautiful 2 year baby girl, a great job, a car an apt . I'm slowly but surely putting the pieces of my life back together . I know with out God non of this would be possible and I am so grateful to be blessed because I have lost so many friends to this disease. My daughter's name is Angelica. I believe god blessed me with her to make me wake up.She is my little angel. A baby can not make you stay clean but its a great help. You have to want this with your whole heart. There is hope!
