I Struggle, but I Will Succeed
Here is a patients view thus far for where they are today.
I have been [through] a lot over the past few years.
It has really been a struggle with this addiction for some time now. In this battle there have been good times and bad. I have met some good people in recovery and learned a lot about myself from working with a sponsor. I also had my share of hard times as well. I have [gone] from doing really well and living in a nice home to having nothing and living on the street over one little pill; one day, one second changed my whole situation and because of it I spent the next 10 days on the street sober. I do feel I learned from it [though] for sure.
Most of my mistakes I have grown stronger because of it.
I have also learned more about how it is to be on my own and I’ve managed to put a few months of recovery together, so I hope to do even better this time.
