    Since Saturday I've just blown £320 so disappointed in myself it controls every part of my life! I don't want this way of life. How do I take back control of my life?

    @Brokengirl... You need to get some professional help. It's incredibly hard to quit on your own. Is there a treatment facility or addiction specialist in your area you can talk to? What about a support group like Narcotics Anonymous (NA)?

    I know you feel ashamed. That's a normal thing to feel. But you shouldn't feel that way. Addiction is not a moral failing. it's a disease. You're not a bad person. You're a sick person. There should be no shame in wanting to get better.

    Think about going to an NA meeting just to check it out. If it makes you uncomfortable, you don't have to go back. But I think you will find help and comfort there. You will see that you are not alone.

    Sending you positive, healing vibes and lots of hope and encouragement. And hugs. Lots of hugs.
