Starting treatment

Well I must say it has been a very long fewmonths since I found out i had this im a ex drug and alcohol addic so giving up and going clean was hard enough but I got so low In that way of life it brought me to tears and suicide thought's then i though no I'm doing this i gave my life to the Lord and I'm in a dry house now it's been 7 months and clean from all the crap and I start treatment next week so yes life is looking up considering how low that life of drugs and alcohol gave me i can now smile my faith keeps me strong and I am now doing voluntary work I do hope to in the future to help others by becoming a drug and alcohol support worker and maybe more who knows my life is in God's hands now if you are a addic and are reading this i do pray that this will help you good luck god bless 😇

Well I am in a dry house so I'm in what you can say rehab they are very good and I have to go to group's in the morning Monday Tuesday and Wednesday and I do voluntary work on the Thursday and Friday i get tested random i have a support worker also i am now just starting to have counciling as well because giving up is the easy part but I am getting to the route of why i went down that road and the groups i go to help and I suppose the counciling will help me also as I want to stay clean so that is why I am doing the full monte as you can say also as i am a Christian my faith helps me when I feel weak so having a higher power does work i also do the na meetings so that's it anyway i wish you all the best and just try and stay strong and try not to rush your recovery as if you take it slow you have a good chance of winning good luck god bless Darren

I used to be on methadone for seven years (and on drugs for 12 years as well) and I struggled every time it came to reducing it, but one day I just started to reduce it myself by tiny amounts, and in the end I was on barely anything and poured the rest down the loo, lol! Went to GP and said I'm done, he was a little surprised. I found you will be able to do it when you are ready, not when the Dr tells you to reduce. They always seemed to reduce it at the worst time. Stay strong and I'm positive you can do it too eventually. I was only scared of reducing it because I thought I will feel ill without it, but because I did it so little and so slowly, I didn't even feel unwell when I stopped. Not touched any drugs since then, about 11 years ago :) good luck to you!
