Just curious if anyone on cafemom is in recovery from drugs/alcohol?
If so, share some of your experience -
- I have been getting high since i was 11 - started with pot & lead to using heroin & coke at the age of 13 - Have overdosed, been in trouble, homeless & unmanageable because of it - Went to rehab 3 times & finally the fourth time at the age of nineteen - I moved to a recovery house & attended meetings daily -
So as of today i just turned 21 & have been clean for almost two years - I have my own apartment with my boyfriend & im expecting a little girl by the name of mayah noelle - I go to beauty school and plan to open my own hair salon one day - I have goals & principals today & i dont settle for less with my life - Im caring & honest today & still attend meetings daily.
I havent had a drug or a drink since 7 - 7 - 07!

Way to go momma to be. Congratulations! You should be very proud of yourself. I thought I had a small drinking problem when I was in high school. I started drinking when I was 13 and then when I went to high school most of my friends drank too. Several of them went to rehab and started going to meetings and I thought since I was drinking with them all the time that I had a really bad problem too. It turned out that most of them were drinking all the time and I was only drinking socially with them and I didn't have the same problem as them, but I started going to meetings anyway and they really did help me. I've been around a lot of people who are/were (some are deceased now b/c of it) alcoholics and I've seen first hand how it ruins lives. I still don't drink very often because I just really don't like it that much and now I take lots of prescription medications for medical problems and I shouldn't drink while taking them.
