I am a victim of substance abuse, and I have been for several years, the people who were supposed to help me have hurt me, and I have continued to turn back to them time and time again. I am addicted to hurt, and it’s like a substance that I’ve become immune to, I try to quit cold turkey but I suffer from daily withdraws. I’ve reached my maximum capacity, and the next high that I get could very well be my last high. It’s time to step away permanently from these toxic relationships, and people. I have accepted this challenge, and I am ready to go to rehab, I must change for my better, because my family and friends are only killing me softly.
