I'm 29 years old and have been using heroin for nine years. Over a year ago i went to a three mo th program that allowed me to bring my one year old. That was a blessing and i haven't been that happy in a decade!! Well three months ago i started using again for no specific reason. My daughter is two now and i want to be the best mother. I decided to do it cold turkey and on my third day. I wasn't using as much now like i was before so the withdrawals are uncomfortable but i can deal with it. This isn't something new for me. Addiction is a disease and its insanity because i keep going back to the same thing expecting a different result. I just need someone to talk to.
