Almost lost it all

My name is Brandi I am 36 and my whole life I have been addicted to something. I started drinking, smoking and drugs of all kinds at 10 years old. I had my first daughter at 18 with a man that beat on me for 9 years. Finally got out of that marriage and turned to alcohol full time until I found the most wounderful man in the world. Got married and had 2 more daughters. I was taking care of my dad who ended up dying of cancer. I felt like I couldn't do anything on my own anymore. And I was in so much pain. I was addicted to pain pills first then adroil.  When I couldn't get adroil I was introduced to crystal meth. I started stealing and a lot of bad stuff.  My husband put me in rehab. And now with my full trust in God I have been clean for 6 months. There is a lot more to my story  but this is the short version. But I take it one day at a time.
