Rehab changed my life. I really needed the help that I got from rehab, and it came right on time. I spent way too many years being out of control and out of my gourd. Walking home from the bar completely obliterated or going to work stoned; it was all the same to me. It really was all the same. Same routine every day of the week. The same shit every different day. My cycle was more than a vicious one. It was a dark and potentially deadly cycle. I was trapped and I needed to get out.
Getting help for my problem was hard at first. It was difficult to admit to having a problem. I hated coming to the realization that I had failed myself and my family by letting things get to where they were. Once I had come to my senses and realized what had to be done, I checked myself into a drug rehab facility. I honestly feel like it was the best thing I could have ever done for myself. It was literally the first time in my life that I felt clear headed and straight. I love that part.
