Advice from me to you...

 I am a recovering addict... Today is my clean date... I have 6 years... 
Do not tell me it's impossible. 
Do not 'poor me' at me.
And absolutely positively 
Do not act like you're better than me because on the outside it looks like it. 

It is not impossible, I am living proof. 
Poor me is bullshit. I went through the hardest things I ever had to deal with in my life without drugs. Things that all I wanted was to stop feeling but I didn't. I dealt with it, I still deal with it. I know people living in constant pain because they won't use again. I know people staying clean during the worst times. You are not using because life is too much 'right now'. You are using because you want to. 
Stop making excuses.
I don't care how great your life looks on the outside. And I don't care how shitty mine looks. You're still using & im not. I have love, honesty, and trust throughout my life. Do you?
If you're stuck in a cycle, using, getting clean, using, getting clean, doing no work on yourself, using again, that's on you. All you have to do is want it enough to do the work. It sucks & it's hard, but the reward, having your life back, makes it worth it. 
Don't take this the wrong way. If you want to get clean but don't know how, talk to me, I'll help if I can, I'll give you strategies, plans, ideas. But don't come to me with excuses and sob stories, I don't care. Life sucks sometimes, things get hard, there's no way around it. The answer is to deal with it, not to use.
