At a young age, I moved out my parents’ home when I told them I was questioning my sexuality. I started to use drugs to cope and fit in with others. Later, I was diagnosed with leukaemia, and I began my journey with opiates. From oxycodone to fentanyl, I was hooked. After beating cancer, it took 10 years to admit I didn't need opiates. I was addicted to pain nearly as much as I was addicted to drugs. After losing a beloved 23-year partner, I decided I had had enough pain!
I have been sober now for almost 2 years. I decided that doing the same things over and over but looking for a different outcome was true insanity. I was given a list of things to do and was promised that if I did them, my life would be better than ever. I saw that people making positive changes. It was working! I wanted success! Today I have a home, career, and an amazing life. I have achieved my goals and aspirations and have many more. Let me share with you what was shared with me.
