Any recovering cocaine addicts on here? Could do with any help possible thank you
Hi! Welcome to the forum! I am in recovery and my DOC for many years was crack cocaine. Whats going on? How have you been?
Hello nice to meet you and thank you for your message
I’m just struggling I’m 28 and been on cocaine everyday for 8 years apart from two sober periods one in rebab for 30 days came out 3 days later I relapsed. Few years after that I managed to get to 100 days clean then relapsed, I’m now back at 1 day clean and thinking if my life is going to be like this forever is there acutely ain’t point anymore
Im glad ur here. This is an amazing forum of amazing people who all understand about addiction. U have had some good clean time under ur belt and im glad u havent given up it took me a long time to get any sort of clean time also. For the longest time i couldnt get past 3 days clean. But its not impossible u can get to that 100 days again and get even farther. One day at a time… Today is all we have to focus on. What are u incorporating into ur recovery this time around? Have u tried any 12 step meetings (in person or online)?
Hey there, welcome to the forum. Cocaine in all forms was my DOC for my late teens and early twenties. Once I realized that I couldnt stop smoking crack I got scared and I had to find a new drug. I was caught on that vicious merry go round that many of us with the disease of addiction get on; replacing one drug for another. My life just kept getting more and more unmanageable, now looking back in retrospect I can see clearly that the drugs arent the problem. That I was never a cocaine addict, nor a crack addict, nor a meth addict like I used to call myself. I am simply an addict who for 33 years used drugs as my solution to a much bigger problem.
I hope that you find the support that you are looking for here. This forum has been a major part of my recovery for the last 3.5 years. There is a daily check in thread that was very helpful to me in my early days. Its a great way to get to know other members and stay accountable.
