Will you fight for your life?
Do you remember how it felt when your body was healthy and
vibrant? Do you remember the giddy feeling of being in love? Can you
recall what it felt like to wake up in the morning and look forward
to simple pleasures? No matter how distant those things seem, you
can experience those pure feelings again. It is possible on the
other side of the dark tunnel of heroin withdrawal.
In the course of your life, the several months it will take to
detox from heroin are little more than a blip in time. The months
after treatment when you learn how to pick up the pieces of your
life and practice a system of sobriety is a period of awakening that
can be compared with a rebirth if you choose to embrace it. Though
in a state of insanity, death itself may seem more inviting than
living through the hell of withdraw, there are many people just like
you who have taken back their lives from heroin. Will you?
If you don't make the choice to change, eventually friends,
family, and society will turn its back on you. At best, you'll live
a private hell alone with other users who care more about heroin
than they do about you or you'll spend your life behind bars sober
and miserable. At worst, you'll be in a casket and people will talk
of what a shame it was that your life ended as it did.
Recovery is possible
Jail is not the place to sober up and recover. If you've already
found yourself in jail or in legal trouble because of heroin, you
have come face to face with the fact that there is little tolerance
for your behavior in society. In order to kick heroin, you must have
a safe environment where people will hold you accountable for your
actions, but will also give you the tools to bring your body and
mind back to a state of sanity.
You alone must make the decision of whether you will live a life
of authentic happiness, a life of hell, or if you will trade your
one life for a drug that has led you where you are today. If you've
done heroin for any length of time, you know better than anyone does
that the time to make this important decision is running out. If
your life is worth fighting for, ask someone for help today.
