NA Saved My Life
My names Sarina and I'm a recovering addict. I'm a little over 6 months clean and no one ever thougt that I would be alive today. My clean date is JULY 4 2012 the day that I AWOled from rehab and finally gave up and surrendered to my higher power. I'm a seventeen year old teenager that got messed up with the wrong people in highschool and started clubbing and doing ecstacy. The first pill I took I was addicted and from then on did it almost everyday. A year later I started smoking crystal meth and heroin. 6 months later I started hard balling and free basing cocaine. I stopped going to school and talking to my friends that were clean. I started fighting with my family and most importantly I ALWAYS had to be high.
One day I couldn't take it anymore I wasn't getting high anymore and the drugs weren't making me happy. I was sick and tired or being SICK and TIRED. I told my school counselor that I was addicted to crystal and that I need help. A few days later I was put into a rehab center in LA. Because of the wirhdrawls and the amount of drugs that was underestamated to the Dr. It wasn't really the right place for me. 15 days later I AWOled and relapsed- I was sent to another rehab center and finished 48 days and finished at the highest level- best in class. Sometimes you have to learn from your mistakes. I know I do... Today I'm a different person than I was from last year. I go to my NA meetings every day and have my fellowship. Most of all I have my family back and I have myself. <3 I hope my story can help somone that has a similar one and that if you mess up, tomorrow is a different day and you can be a different person
