I wanted to give you some encouragement in your fight against heroin addiction. I used meth for many years, but I know they are not the same evil. The best thing you have done for yourself is understanding that you need to change your behavior and stop using.
Even if you slip-up, keep trying. I wish so much love your way, let it fill you up and take away your pain anxiety.
You can be a success! We all love a support you and please email me if you need to vent or chat.

I just wanted to tell you congratulations on 2 days being without heroin.
I have never used heroin so I cannot speak to the addiction.
One of my coworkers lost everything she had to heroin addiction, her family, her children etc. She was able to kick it through therapy and rehab, but she told me it was the hardest thing she ever did. She said she was at the point in her life that she didn't care and went through rehab a few times. She is back with her husband, her kids are grown & she is successful in the company we work for. So I KNOW it is possible to overcome, but I also know it is going to be a hard road for you. You will be in my thoughts. Good luck, we are all pulling for you!

I hope I didn't overwhelm you with my long letter. I'm just passionate about helping others. I wanted to see how you were doing today. I understand you don't want to upset your parents. But you do need support from loved ones. Would you be able to reach out to them and ask them to help you. You shouldn't be going through this yourself. It is possible to quit although, it's hard. I just read your profile and you say that you can't afford to go to a rehab. Your insurance won't pay for it? Would your parents' insurance pay for it? If you need someone to talk to I'm here for ya. You may need to put college on hold for now. It's hard to get sober with added stress in your life. I would just concentrate on getting sober and taking care of you. I wish you my best.

No one is perfect.I'd just like to start off saying that you couldn't have possibly thought you were perfect a year and a half ago. Otherwise you would not have started using heroin. I'm not putting you down, please hear me out. Have you ever been in a detox? I undestand it is extremely hard and painful to quit at home. I'm pretty sure you need to be on medication when you are going through withdrawal. Have you ever tried NA meetings or a Rehab? If you don't want to go the 12 step way, seeing a therapist is extremely important. One that deals with addiction. Not all therapists understand addiction. You also have to find one that you connect with. Don't give up if you find a therapist you can't stand at first.They can help you to realize the cause of your addiction. Using cognitive or behavior therapy can help. Using a substance to make ourselves feel better is only a symptom of what's really going on with you. Finding out the cause can help. You could have been repressing bad memories for years and they resurfaced. You might be able to figure out on your own what starts you to use. What are you thinking of and how are you feeling when you want to use. It's not just because the drug makes you feel good or you don't want to feel the affects of withdrawal. I have suffered from addiction myself. Alcohol, drugs, relationships and food etc. I can tell you my life has been no picnic. I am listening to this book on CD right now. I don't know if this will help but I'm giving it a try. I went to this website I saw advertise on TV. Passages Malibu. They believe in a holistic approach to addiction. They have a Rehab as well. The book is called The Alcoholism and Addiction Cure by Chris Prentiss. The author is the father of a man who suffered from heroin addiction. He speaks of his son's history with addiction and how he was treated. I also purchased some other books which came together as a package by the same author. Be who you want Have what you want. It has to do with changing your way of thinking. The other two books are Zen and the art of happiness, and The little book of secrets. The author says it's very important to see a Primary care provider to rule out that you have no medical problems or mental illness. I know for me I have anxiety which is also just a system. I either am thinking negatively or fearful of something. But I have used because of it. Whenever I feel anxious I want to use something to calm myself down. Anway I don't want to overwhelm you with writing too much. I hope this helps.

Ive never used heroin but this website seems to be good at telling you what to expect.
And good luck girl! You can do whatever you set your mind to. You will get through it. Think of all the neifits of not being on it. The freedom youl feel from not needing a kick, the pride youl have from being able to quit. Even deciding that you want to quit is a massive step! And in doing it, youl be an inspiration for all the other people who are on it and desperately want to be free from it. Good Luck! You can do it!
If you struggle, come back on here n keep talking to people, wel give you as much encouragement as we can. And if it does get too much, theres are always groups that deal with addiction, maybe you could meet people there who are trying to quit and do it together!
