Never in a million years would I have thought I would be spending my 44th b-day incarcerated! It’s been almost 2 years already and I still wake up most mornings in a state of disbelief. I look around and can’t believe I’m here. That’s the way thing about addiction, it doesn’t care about your race, social status or financial situation. The first time I popped those pills, I never imagined the road that I would travel. I became a slave to those drugs. One of the steps NA talks about our lives become unimaginable. What a true statement! Another popular phrase around the meetings is that the only outcome of addiction is jail, institution or death. Thank God I still got my sanity and drugs didn’t kill me! I guess in the long run jail is the best outcome of the three. I’m this blog I want to share my thoughts and story while I do my time. Hopefully I can help someone with my experience, strength and hope.
