    Cocaine addiction

    Sun Sep 15, 2019 10:46 am

    Hello I am new to this site and have been battling with my cocaine habits for over a year now. I want to stop but I have that devil inside my head telling me one more line won’t hurt and I’ve got no control over it. I am surrounded by great friends who know I have a coke problem but they don’t really know how bad I am on it. I still function every day I go to work I pay my way but I am not going anywhere in life.I don’t steal or jeopardise my priorities yet. I can feel my self slipping down the dark road of chronic addiction and coke abuse. I don’t know who to talk to or how to open up to someone and get help. Cause I know deep down I need help with my cocaine abuse. If someone could give me some advice or someone who can relate to my situation. Financially the coke is putting me back wards. I know every time when I roll a note and have coke on a plate ready to snort, deep down I know it’s ******* me up and I’ll be honest I am chasing that feeling of being coked up. I know it’s only a temporary problem that I can fix and live a better life. Could someone please talk to me about it

    Hey @Coz , im Vik the community manager. Welcome to the forums and thank you for having the courage to share what you're going through.

    Coming here shows you're eager to make change toward better life, which is so great!
    I know it takes strength to chat to someone about getting help, but it can be the beginning of a really great thing. Is there someone around you that you feel you could open up to?

    Looking forward to hearing from others who relate, or might have some advice for you.

    Take care
