When I was young, I had a friend who would take me everywhere. It was exciting and he did teach me a lot about life, but he also got me addicted to cocaine which was a horrible part of my life. I got addicted at a very young age and that was unfortunate. I never had the opportunity to grow up and reflect on the choices I was making before it was too late and I had damaged my body. It took an accident for me to understand the severity of my problem and that I needed to make amends right away.
This is when I decided to visit a local rehab facility in order to get checked out and treated right away. I didn’t want to deal with crack anymore and felt that it was time to change my life forever. There were so many people that were telling me that I was on the right path and that felt good. It meant that I was going in the right direction and for once I was making a decision that would make people proud. This is what I wanted as crack rock can be horrible for the body in the short and long-run.
I think when I started getting called a ‘crack head’ I realized that it was time to start making changes that were significant. It was not about making small changes, but going all out and ensuring that cocaine was a thing of the past now. It might not have been easy for me right away, but I was able to make changes that were effective and worth my time.
There is nothing better than going all out with your change as it can bolster your confidence right away as you would want it to be.
