|Intervention Saved My Life|
How can I get clean?
For the longest time I used drugs and alcohol and I could stop but I could never stay stopped. I could quit drinking for a month but then I'd start again for no good reason. Id take pain pills for the hangovers then the pills took me. The cycle began. I’d take pills to get off booze then take the booze to get off the pills.
I was killing myself.
I was aware of Alcoholics anonymous and I attended meetings from time to time but I could never connect with the people in the meetings. I guess it’s true you must stop using before the program will work. One morning my wife said she'd leave if I didn't get help. I continued using for a few more weeks and on a saturday in August I came home and saw two moving vans in front of our house.
My wife was leaving me.
I was so distraught all I could do was drink, use and hide. This went on for a few months, I was living in two rooms of my large house the bedroom and the kitchen. I only left to get beer or pills. I was a prisoner in my home and I hated what I had become.
I started to think about suicide.
A friend had been reaching out to me from time to time and the last time he visited he saved my life. My friend came with and interventionist and after two hours I had agreed to go to residential treatment. When I made the decision for treatment my life started to get better and hope slowly started to enter my thinking again. I completed a 90 day residential treatment program and I was excited about life. Today I have a life rich with friends and family. I have a spiritual connection that helps me overcome any problem I face.
