I need someone to tell me i can stop before its too late

Discussion in 'General Substance Abuse Discussion' started by In need of change, Mar 19, 2017.

  1. Cocaine is taking over my life and its ruining my relationships with the closest people around me. I've been through some very hard, dark times and sometimes i use them as an excuse to take because i'm feeling sorry for myself at the time. I know its time to stop but my willpower just isn't as strong as i need it to be. I just need you guys to be as mean and real to me as possible just to make me upset and guilty for taking this evil substance before its too late and i'm laying 6 feet under the ground. Guys be as mean and nasty as you need to be...GO

    @In need of change... Welcome to the community and thanks for sharing your story with us. I'm glad you reached out for help with your cocaine problem. That's a courageous and important first step.

    I'm not going to be mean and nasty, my friend. I'm just going to tell you what you asked me to tell you: You CAN stop.

    Will stopping be easy? Nope. Will you sometimes feel like going back to coke because the quitting is such a bitch? Probably. But everything you go through and feel will be entirely worth it. Living without a dependence on cocaine will mean a healthier, happier, easier life for you. You will no longer face the physical and mental side effects that cocaine brings. And you'll be free of the potential legal and financial nightmares that cocaine can impose on people.

    I suggest you find an addiction specialist in your area and set up an appointment with them. They can assess your situation and suggest the best next steps for you. You can also look into support group meetings like Narcotics Anonymous (NA) or Cocaine Anonymous (CA). Being around people who know exactly what you're going through and feeling can be incredibly helpful and comforting.

    You CAN quit cocaine. But you have to want it, and you have to be willing to work hard at it. If you want to quit, and you're willing to work hard, you CAN break free from this nasty drug. But if instead you keep doing what you're doing...well, then you might very well end up laying 6 feet under the ground.

    We're here to help and support you however we can. You can come here and lean on us anytime.

    I'm sending you lots of positive vibes, hope, and encouragement.
