Of course I never considered myself as, or even felt I was addicted. I'm sure like everyone else it was just a recreational drug and eventually it became something I liked doing and didn't care who knew about me doing it. I would smoke in front of everyone and just laugh at their reaction and disbelief that I was really smoking meth. I was the friend that everyone looked up to and my addiction soon became their addiction as well. When I saw my circle of friends doing this drug and actually starting to be worse off than I was, I knew I had to be the one to stop the madness. I had friends who were coming over daily bringing the drug with them. I knew I wouldn't be able to quit with this happening so I made up a lie and told them that my probation officer was watching my house and everyone who came over. That stopped the traffic and influence. That's when I had to work on myself. I started reading up on the effects that meth had on the body and that led me to the measures I had to take to cleanse myself and re-program my mind as well as rejuvenate my entire system. I started drinking apple cider vinegar every morning before meals and eating lots of fruits and vegetables daily. I also drank massive amounts of water every time I thought about it just to keep my system flushing out the poisons. After only a couple weeks my mind had completely transformed into health mode and I found myself not wanting to put anything harmful into it anymore. I didn't even want unhealthy foods, sodas, cigarettes , anything anymore. I also had to serve 3 months in the county jail for a marijuana charge. That furthered my detoxification process because no matter what u want, crave or think you're addicted to, you cant get it in jail. That's where I learned the power of the Brain and how anything you want to accomplish or be a part of, the power was in the mind. I was released from jail in March of 2014, and since I've been home I've started my own business online, as well as helped so many people find the power within themselves to break free from any addiction and affliction that they may encounter. I haven't looked back since and I haven't touched a drug, cigarette or eaten harmful foods to contaminate my body. I know it sounds cliché' but.. if I can do it, anyone can.
