Drug addiction and substance abuse come in many different forms but whether your choice has been Cocaine, Heroin, Methamphetamine, Ketamine etc, they all have one thing in common… they are destroying your life.
When you look back on how you got hooked, you’re probably surprised at how such a small seemingly fun activity, which once promised a good time, has become your destroyer. Now that you want to quit using - it seems it won't let you go.
The impact on lives, and not just your life, from drug addiction, is immense! They affect your physical health, you can develop short- and long-term mental health problems, they will drain your bank account and can tear you and your families apart, and for what? You get absolutely nothing positive from any drug addiction.
You may have started using for 'fun', because others were doing it, or because you wanted an escape from a problem of your own at the time. Whatever got you hooked; it now feels like you're held down. For many with addiction, every time you tell yourself you’ll not touch it again, something comes along to scupper you. Willpower alone is rarely enough to stay motivated.
But there is hope.
