So I became addicted to drugs age 13 and ended up on the streets and in a mental hospital several times doing nine months in all every time they would stick me back wit my family against my wishes who would get me hooked up on drugs again before they would put me back out on the street and then when I was quite stressed enough I would get stuck back in the asylum. I gave up around 25 26 and have been cleanfor around 13 years excluding the hospital meds iI have done over four years college a year's work and have a daughter aged five. My family unfortunately still use drugs heavilly and also alcohol they have brought me and themselves down with it for decades and I don't know what to do about it? I tried so hard to get clean and make myself a success but they are like a lead weight in my life that cannot be unchained from my ankle? Any suggestions would be welcome xxx
