Ten Year Struggle, a Family Man has hope

  1. Journal Description

    I started my battle with opiates at 17, at 28 pushing 29 I think I may have finally won. I've quit multiple times by lack of choice, three times by choice, and here I sit the fourth, a coincidence of both: 3 days worth of withdrawals, knowing that the 4th will be euphoria. But this time I chose me, I chose my wife and I chose my children and I know that 1 year, 3 years and more opiates will continue to be a thought and struggle within my mind, body and soul. I'm on 36 hours of my newest and hopefully final push, and I have never once felt the peace and anger that I have felt to this point.
