Has anyone out there had a heroin/crack addiction, got clean and then relapsed? <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/confused.gif"&gt;

If you have then can you tell me after how long did you relapse, was it weeks, months years? And also, why did you relapse?

What are the chances of it not happening? Has anyone got clean and stayed clean?

I've been clean for 4 months and obviously it depends on the individual <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif">. I'd like to hear about other peoples experiences. Maybe it would help...

    I wouldnt say I ever had an addiction as such buit I have definatly had problems with drugsa in the past.
    When I tried to stop I have always relapsed in some form or another and I no that Ill never not take drugs at some point coz (sad as it may sound) I cant live without them!
    Im a mum now though and got another responsability so I no Im not gonna end up as bad as I have been in the past. But I gotta be honest and say that I will take something when I am out (i dont think I could go out unless I did, and yes that is sad too!) and unfortunatly if I feel shitty Im most likely to turn to something too, but thats something I gotta sort out (and will be sorting out hopefully!). Fingers crossed Ill never end up like Ive been before though. I wouldnt be fit to be a mother if I did!
