Hi everyone,i'm a new user and have found this forum of much interest... I am 30 years old and have been an addict for the last 13 years, starting with cannabis and the in the laters yearsof my life progressing to harder drugs. The last 3 years I was using crack and heroin daily and I got myself ina right mess I can tell you. I went into Detox 5 back in October and got clean. I have not used for the last 4 months but I mus admit there are times when using is all I can think about, especially when I'm feeling depressed which I've been feeling a lot lately. I know that I definately dn't want to go back to that lifestyle but I still feel like there's this big hole in my life and nothing I do seems to fill it. Has anyone else experienced these feelings at all, and does i get better? Any comments would be grealy appreciated. Thanks.

    Hiya, welcome to thesite!
    I no just how u feel. I only stopped taking drugs when I got pregnant but before that I have been pretty bad in the past. Its so hard when u stop taking them coz it does leave a big hole in your life, like u said. Ive got an addictive personality and it seems I always need some kind of crutches in my life. There is always something there be it drugs or an eating disorder or whateva.
    I found it really hard stopping drugs and now Im not pregnant anymore its gonna be even harder. I no its not realistic of me to say Im never gonna take them again, coz I no that I will, but I like to think Im more sorted in my own head now so that I wont end up as bad as Ive been in the past.
    Just thought u would feel better knowing that there r people who have been in the same boat as u...u will find loads of support at thesite <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;

    Hi ive not tried heroin coke or crack but have done other stuff,

    yeah its really hard to stop i think the longer you go without the more you realise you can live without them, but im not too sure,

    i'm one of those people i know deep down in my heart if im going to do something again or not and even though i might say otherwise out loud i know the truth deep down in my heart,

    sometimes it scares you knowing that you woud do those things again because you know that really you dont want to.

    I really do hope things get easier for you and im sure they will with time <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;
