What's your addiciton?

Lets be honest...no bashing pls.

I used to have a shopping addiction like shoes, clothes etc. I still get the urges to whip out the credit card but don't because I feel guilty and would rather buy for my kids of course.

YOU?

  • Typically, I'd have answered this anon, but I've recently begun facing my problem, so I'll show my face, so to speak. I have a drug addiction. Opiates specifically. It's been on and off for about 12 years, and has been really bad, out of control, every single day, for about 2 1/2 years.

I started treatment on Tuesday, and went to my first meeting last night. I'm putting this out there so that if there are any other moms suffering the way I am, and struggling with opiate addiction, maybe we can reach out to each other. I thought quitting the drugs would be the hardest part, but right now, it seems that the hardest part is dealing with life, with everyday things, withOUT being high. I simply don't know how to function without drugs, and used them as a coping mechanism, and now, I have to
