10 years! I have not done any illegal / illicit drugs for 10 years now. [View all]

I don't go to N.A. meetings, but I just felt like announcing it here!

I had a slight problem with cocaine... regardless of how comparatively big or small my cocaine use was, it was too big of a problem for me for me to cope with, and I knew it was unhealthy. I had experimented with LSD a few times, and smoked marijuana socially, but I had no desire at all to abuse those substances. Cocaine was only drug that was irresistible.

10 years ago to this day, a person very, very close to me died of an accidental drug overdose. He was a young man, extremely popular, who had a good job, a wife, everything going for him. It broke my heart.

Everyone grieved, but yet even so, a couple of his dear friends did drugs at his funeral. It was disgusting. I was quietly offended, and I knew I wanted no part of it anymore!
I didn't lose any friends, but people stopped calling me. They still liked me, but they didn't seek out my company anymore. So yes, I lost friends.

But it was worth it! I'm not an "easily addicted person" so after that event it wasn't hard for me to resist cocaine, either. And for that I am very thankful.
