Addiction. Who would have guessed that I would reach a point in my life where I am struggling with addiction? Not me. Yet, here I am having disappointed everyone around me fighting a constant battle within myself.
Hello. My name is Anna and I was addicted to crack cocaine.
When I finally hit rock bottom, I figured there was nowhere left to go from here but up. I decided that it was finally time for a change. If I didn’t take action soon, I could end up dead, and that is NOT an option.
So here I am, laying out all of my demons for everyone to see. My hope is that blogging about my life and my addiction may lead to my continued recovery and inspire others to make the same choice. If I am forced to read and reread my mistakes, I can keep myself from repeating them. Let’s think of this as part of my rehabilitation.
Either way, I cannot deny the truths that stand in front of me. If I can be honest with you, then I must be honest with myself. With that being said, here is to a very long journey that lies ahead and to the very steep steps on my winding road to recovery. Cheers!
