Would ou admit that you may have ever had a drug problem?

Have you? How did you beat it?
I did not go to a treatment center. My husband helped me get off them and keeps me off by being the light of my life aside my four other lights that is :)

  • yes i would admit it so that i can say that "i have been there and done that" and tell people stories and help them out whether they want to judge me or not. A rescue story like yours is what people like and like to hear.

    i have never used drugs but your husband should be proud.

  • I have not, but I'm a pretty open honest person and sure I would if it would help the person I'm talking to or anyone else. Most drug problems are from prescription drugs and these people didn't ask for that and I do feel bad for them.

  • i say what ever is your strength to stay away from drugs...if it's another human or a treatment long as it gets you though that's all that matter.

  • Yes I did. But I had to do it for myself and no one else. I could not rely on another human being to keep me clean. Humans are human and they fail. When that person wasn't there any more I started back up. I had to figure out what was hurting so bad to want to do it to begin with and deal with it.

  • I will admit, I DID start getting addicted to the pain meds my doctor gave me after my c section. I never asked for more than what he gave me, but still, after I no longer needed them I just took what I had left for the stoned feeling. I got over that addiction quick though. Once I was out I never needed or wanted more.
