Hold On, Pain Ends
There’s no exact recipe that results in someone becoming a drug addict. We may start using drugs with friends as teenagers or young adults, or we were prescribed narcotics after an operation. After a period of time our drug use becomes habitual and we can’t stop. What used to be fun now becomes something we can’t imagine living without.
The toughest step towards recovery from addiction is deciding to make a change. Change isn’t easy for anyone, and when getting into recovery, many things need to change – who we associate with, how we spend our free time, and the ways we cope with stress are just a few things that need to change.
