After watching several episodes of Intervention, I am amazed at how many of those that have turned to drugs have been victims of sexual abuse. If sex abuse has happened to you, how has this affected you overall as a person? Do you cope well with stress or no, did you turn to drugs or alcohol? How has this affected your relationships with others, and do you find it hard to make friends or not? Thanks.
My own personal story, I was molested by my grandfather for 2 yrs. from the age of 10-12. I think because of this is why I was somewhat more prone to being promiscuous at a young age and always went from boyfriend to boyfriend. I turned to marijauna and drinking, smoking..to this day I feel that it's affected my overall feelings of self-worth which makes it difficult to make and keep friendships since I still carry those feelings around.
I would like to know if there have been those who have learned to overcome the negative feelings about themselves.
