Hey, my name is Jay & I'm an addict. Came here looking for help, leaving feeling worse! I have the 'typical' story for my area. Drinking at 12, pot at 13, then x. By 17, I was full blown I.V. herion addict. Got so bad, I'd shoot dope to get 'well' & the powder(coke) to feel something. Been in jails, institions, & I died twice! So many meetings & rehabs. inpatient & out. I am 38 now, only clean for 2 months. (Fresh out of jail again). Anyway, to the point. I am sad & dissapointed with most of the comments here. So, Thanks.
