Taking Back My Life

11904682_393144547556585_2934756615715943924_nIt’s been a while since I posted. So much has happened in my life, but all of that stuff seems trivial against the fact that I am now a recovering heroin addict. It seems so strange to say, almost an out of body experience, but I am in the process of taking my life back. I am not the cliche addict, but through all of this I have learned that opiate addiction knows no boundaries. This will shock some, but not all. I am lucky to have an amazing support system so I can say I will rise against this addiction, but I refuse to do so in the dark. I can’t concentrate on who “knows” about my addiction if I am going to stay clean. So get your shock over with and decide what role you will play on my road to recovery. Because it is going to happen either way.
