Re: Cocaine Addiction

Hello merk,

Are you prepared to do what is necessary to recover?

Care to share a little more about your addiction?

No need to worry; we are non-judgemental here.


Just asking.

Phoenix

Re: Cocaine Addiction

Well Phoenix, I started using when I was 18. I was using alot. I did it for about two months straight. I never paid one cent for it though, it was free, why not do it. After almost dying from overdose I quit, I quit for 3 years. I dont really know why I even started up again. Such a bad chioce.

Re: Cocaine Addiction

Merk,

Could any of the reasons that you began using again be that you forgot the trail of pain and suffering that was left behind or thought that the next time would be different?

Re: Cocaine Addiction

Merk,

Then it was related to the people, places and things category that I mentioned previously.

If you are going to do this, staying away is a priority.
