On the use of illegal drugs

I have been fighting against drugs for the last 5 years of my life. When I write about drugs here it does not in any way mean that I support it. I just want to share my struggle to get through my addiction as well as my depression and anxiety.

I don’t judge anyone that takes it, but I wouldn’t advise anyone to take it . You’d say that it’s ok to have just a bit of fun but the next line could mean that you are starting to destroy your hopes and dreams. I thought that I was a strong person 5 years ago, who was totally in control. But I was wrong, and in no way am saying that this is the case with everyone.

If you need it, it’s because something is missing in your life, maybe you haven’t found your place in the world, maybe you just need someone to talk to, maybe you think you don’t fit it when there’s someone out there that loves you and will be there with you whenever you need it.

Just remember that you are never alone. It may take long to realise that, but don’t look for the quick fix. The quick fix will damage your body, mind and soul for a long time or even for the rest of your life. Finding and accepting love is the most wonderful thing and it can provide you with that feeling of being high without the additional help. I believe this because I’ve had these moments and I am trying to find them again.

Stay safe
