13 years.

Today marks 13 years clean of my demon, heroin. I'd like to thank my body for giving me a 2nd chance and to really prove I could make something out of it.

Happy 13th anniversary Nancy! That is quite an accomplishment. I'm so glad you overcame that because you have had so much to share with so many people (your kids and hubby of course) and us out in blogland. Yippee!!!

My brother had an addiction to heroin and has 15 months under his belt (and counting!) It's encouraging to me to hear how successfully you've overcome your addiction - it gives me hope that my brother can continue on with his new life. Thanks- and congratulations!

nancy said...

amazingk8, the thing that got me to quit was when I OD'd at my parent's house. I saw the fear in my mom's eyes and I knew right then that in killing myself, I'd be killing her. That's when I made the decision to quit.

I just buried a friend last spring from that shit. Clean for 10 months, thought she could handle one more time. Mom walked in on her daughter "sleeping" with the needle still in her arm.
I hate that shit and am so happy for you that you have been clean for so long. Seriously, the statistics are only about 3% of ppl staying clean over the long haul, so for me to hear this just makes me cheer.


You know who I am.

akaiser said...

Awesome! You now have three beautiful reasons to stay clean for life - congratulations!! I'm sure you could have hardly imagined this 13 years ago. CONGRATS!!!
