Unhappy Worried about college and relapsing - December 15th 2012, 10:11 AM

I've been experimenting since I was 12 years old with Alcohol and I eventually moved on to over the counter pills at 13-14ish. I don't know if it's addiction but at my lowest point I would only care about my next fix from drugs or alcohol even if it meant doing it at high school. Seriously I don't know how my teachers didn't realize I was high and spaced out O.o anyways I decided to get clean at 16 and it was pretty much on my own and I did it by using all the drugs in the house and not buying anymore. It was SO HARD for a LONGEST TIME. Sometimes I would literally fast walk out of the store to keep myself from buying anything :/
Well anyways I'm SUPER worried that once I get into the college scene that I'll fall into my addiction again because a lot of them like to use drugs and drink alcohol. Help?! Oh btw I'm not going into college until September 2013 since I took a year off after graduation.
I forgot to add that I've been craving drugs and alcohol for a yearish so I'm worried that'll make me vulnerable to start using as soon as I get the chance and I'm also paranoid that if I were drunk and offered any drugs regardless of what they are I'd say yes.

Everthing I see seems to be a lie. And everything you see in me you think is the truth. But, really all you see is what I'm masking the real me with. You never see me cry. Because I'll never let you. And you'll never see me die because I feel like I already have in a way.

One suggestion could be to find a support system to help keep you clean. Any friends, etc you trust and have them make sure that when you're in certain situations they help you stay clear of it.
