It’s not as great as it seems

It’s not as great as it seems

Let me just start off with my name, Hello I am Sierra and I am an ex Alcoholic and Ex Drug addict. When I was 13 I started cutting myself and when my parents found out they were pissed and they told me "Find a different way to cope with things" after that I tried marijuana. The high, the feeling I got made me forget I was ever even hurting inside. After about 5 years of just smoking pot it wasn't enough I went to drinking. When I drank I drank a lot. about a fifth of vodka to myself plus more. After months of drinking and smoking I finally realized I didn't know what it was like to be sober and I thought being high and drunk was my sober. After getting help I realized living life sober was better and more amazing than being messed up. All I have to say is if you are going through what I went through just get help. It's going to be hard but I know you can do it.
