Hey -

Do you have a strong support system, like friends, family, or even AA?

Hey Chelsea,

I'm sorry to hear your feeling low right now, substance addictions can be very hard to break but nothings impossible. Often times its not the substance that makes you relapse its the reason your taking it. If you suffer from abuse, depression or anxiety these issues tend to compound and people use these drugs to put their mind to rest. What tends to go unseen is the fact that substances complicate problems with addictions and bad habits. In life you and I will make countless mistakes. What makes us stronger as individuals is trying to learn from our mistakes and correct/ overcoming them.

Repeating the same mistake over and over will make it more difficult to correct the issue. Look around and identify the key things that genuinely make you upset. Once you figure out the root of the problem then you need to try and create a healthy atmosphere around yourself so that the temptation to abuse is less pressured in your day to day life. This won't be easy but in life hard work and dedication pays off, and people who have drive part ways with those who don't.

Sometimes you need to look at your life and ask yourself what exactly you want and how to get there. Personally I've been down the wrong road and sometimes I find myself stepping out of line but its important to know when your in the wrong. Please keep your chin up and use all the resources at your disposal to help you through any hard times that may lay ahead. If you need someone to talk with I'm always willing to chat.

Like what Ryan said, recovering from a drug abuse is not easy and can be extremely difficult. Take for example I just recovered from a cigarette addiction, but it was no easy task, Nicotene is more habit forming that Alcohol and trying not to smoke took all the will power I had. Often times I would be cranky/on the edge and even depressed for the entire month in which I used nothing but willpower to quit. But I had it set out that I would quit for my grandpa and myself. The things that really did help me was having friends to support me and people to talk to. When ever I would get an urge to smoke I would often times distract myself with music or things that calm me. I would also reward my self each week for going with out a cigarette, rather it being allowing my self to buy something or having a free day to myself.

We are all here for you as you go through this Chelsea and know that every single staff member here would be more than happy to help you along the way rather it be through PM, Help Link or Live Help. Together you can do this Chelsea, if I did it so can you!
