Addiction didnt get to kill me I wanted to live!!
Organized by: Megan Wright
This is my journey and let me tell you it hasn't been easy. Drug addiction is everywhere now and as sad as it is it's ruining people's lives not just the addicts themselves but the people who love them and the kids are the ones who suffer the most from watching it destroy their loved one everyday. I remember there was a time where most people didn't even know what that was because most people kept it to themselves because they were ashamed alot of people will never change and get clean but that's not everyone there are the few who refuse to let it take their lives and finally fight for it I'm proud to say I'm one of them and it wasn't easy I'm the youngest of two drug addicted girls my sister has two little boys but their mine I've raised them and as the years went on and the addiction got worse her ex decided he wanted custody and was taking her to court as I looked at her I knew shed never get clean for them and then I'll never see my two baby boys that I raised bc I wasn't their biological parent so I made the decision that day after a 9 yr addiction that I was going to be the one to get clean and give my boys the life they deserved and I did I am now offically a mth away from my one year sobriety I was asked what I was going to do next to build a good life a life everyone deserves for me and my boys and I decided I want to go to school for medical asst. Had anyone asked me two years ago where I thought I would be now I would of laughed and said over dosed by now I never thought the day would come where now I'm clean I did it I over came that not just for me but for two babies that weren't really mine bc I knew if I didnt my sister never would and id never see them again I deffinatly would have never thought not only would I be alive id be raising two healthy perfect boys and ready to better myself even more and get back in school. Even if you don't have any money to help me but you have read this far I hope if you didn't think people can change now you know they can. Threw all those years as a addict I've been thru more at only 26 years old then most people have in a life time and I hope more and more people get help don't be ashamed to want to take your life back. Thank you so much for hearing my story I hope it makes some kind of a difference even if I don't get any help at all. God bless.
