Day 1, a promise

My name is Jason, and I’ve been an addict since I was 15 years old, 24 now, I experimented a lot in highschool and had an issue with MDMA, I ended up stopping on my own. I thought because of that I wouldn’t need to worry when the red flags started with cocaine… 4 years later and I learned most users (who use at the extent I do) die after 2 years, so I guess I should feel lucky to still be here? I do, but it also just shows I’ve been slowly killing myself for years and that was difficult to face, it’s been difficult to face the fact I look forward to sweating in my room at 4am wired beyond belief playing video games, worried the neXt chest pain will be it, and my mother will find me, and probably blame herself for passing the curse of addiction down to me, and worst of all I’ve been lying to my wonderful girlfriend. But today I’veade a choice, a choice for me, for her, for my mother, and for everyone else In my life who loves and cares about me. Today I get sober. And I appreciate having a community to finally open up to. Thank you all
