Overdose

Hi, My name is Cora.

I have a drug addiction. I use opiates, such as Triple c's, OxyContin & Lorabtab. I also smoke synthetic and real marijuana and also drink alcohol. On November 4, 2012, my dad walked into my room and found me passed out on my floor, face down. I had taken 23 OxyContins and 23 Loratabs. I had intended to take my life. I went through all the treatment and mental health. I still use drugs daily. I still go to partys.

I'm treated very differently from other people. I have only a couple friends left.. no true friends..
I have no idea what to do. I'm stuck in a place I don't want to be..
 

Forward to a Friend

Cora you can get out of the place of abusing drugs by checking yourself into a good rehab to get the type of help that you need, once you get clean, you will love it and feel much better, I will keep you in my prayers.

Cora-
Iam a 34 year old mother of 2 who is currently a year and a half into recovery.  I have been in your shoes I lost everything and have no friends left.  You need to get help an get clean- the life you live when you’re using is scary and lonley.  I was so scared to ask for help but when I finally did it was like a weight lifted off my shoulders.  You’re young and you have so much ahead of you, addiction is a disease you don’t pick it you don’t ask for it it just happens.  If you want to hear more of my story please email me I want to help.  God put you on this earth for a reason sweetie please just take my hand and let me help.

Cora,
I already know that you are special, you have my grandmothers name! She was all I needed during my drug addiction because she gave me the warmth and love the drugs took away…..My grandmother died and I was so high caught up in my world of drugs I didnt even say goodbye…I felt so bad I feel deeper into my addiction…It finally struck me that I didnt have to live my life depending on drugs or people…I called on GOD for the 100th time and finally did the work to pull myself out of hell..Yes I have wonderful days but I have some low days too…I am on meds for depression and they help…Stand up Cora any mistakes you feel you have made are erased and wiped clean when you just ask for forgiveness….
