Addiction has helped me to have compassion for other users, because I know I was never a bad person, but I did bad things because of my illness.
Keep sharing the light. Whatever I that means for you.
I was a meth user all throughout my high school years. No one knew I was using meth, but they did know I was using other drugs. No one tried to help. My dad was an alcoholic, so he had his own battles to fight. I didn’t apply myself in school because I never felt good enough to be one of those people who made a difference. I was a good athlete but that was about all I had going for me, but with the drug use, I never played to my full potential. I went to jail a couple times for small amounts of marijuana, but that never scared me to clean up. I finally found the light in my twenties. I have an older sister who is still a meth user. In and out of jail. I want to do this for those like me and for my sister.
