Megan W - Success Story

In 2014 I was introduced to synthetic marijuana, “spice”. I was also faithful to Xanax and alcohol. Spice was my go to. My drug of choice. Blacking out was my way to forget about the things I never grieved over. In 2017 I started using meth, but spice was still my every day – felt like every hour – thing. I never quite let go of my previous 3 year relationship, or my grandfathers death. I got kicked out of medical assisting program, I was unemployed, and I was still chasing my drug of choice. Prostitution was a common way for me to get what I wanted. Stealing. Lying. Manipulating. My life was becoming unmanageable. I couldn’t pay bills, & I was barely eating. One day, they turned my electricity off & I felt this uncomfortable feeling – of guilt. My child would come home from school with no heat. And it was January. I drove to my mother’s house, with eyes full of tears and told them I needed rehab. 5 days later I went to a facility in Kentucky and spent 30 days there.
I also found Jesus. My life has never been the same. I attend meetings, Celebrate Recovery, work the steps with my sponsor and I’m in church every time the doors are open. I’m allowed to finish that medical assisting program exactly where I left off. My relationship with my daughter, and my family has never been better. I praise my higher power for getting me where I am today. It’s a commitment. One day at a time. I’ve never felt so grateful, happy, and complete. I’m so grateful. My sobriety date is January 26th, 2018.
It may not seem like a long time to people who aren’t addicts. I’m still in early recovery. But 100 plus days versus 4 years doing synthetic drugs EVERY day, … It IS a long time. I’m so grateful.

    What a wonderful and inspiring story Megan. I just want to share my story and maybe you can give me some advice about it.
    I am in the mid of my life where i want to give up because of my husband situation. He is 45 years old and were married for 23 years now, we have 2 children a college young man and our little princess. He started using marijuana for almost 3 years now and his doctor told him to use this alternative medicine because he has a chronic pain. But as time goes by I am bothered because he acted differently, my little princess is so afraid of him. And I came across this article that maybe he uses a strong MJ that’s why he acted like that now. I don’t know if it still useful for him to use marijuana as a medicine. We don’t talk to him because of his situation. I need some help and opinion here..
