    Should never have touched the ****

    Mon Sep 23, 2019 12:45 pm

    Long story short.
    Loved to party when I was younger, anything and everything under the sun. Had to be the last one going every time at the party.
    Settled down and found a nice woman. Unfortunately ice made its way into our lives and neally every weekend for just over a year and our lives have been stuck in a vicious cycle.
    Monday to Friday is fine, Friday arvo hits, beers then up till Monday night.
    Can’t break the cylcle and my partner is dealing with phycosis.
    Am mentally , physically tired and fed up with throwing away my money to cunt drug dealers. But it plays you against yourself and is hard to win.
    Cut out the triggers etc yeh easier said than done.
    I forgot what a normal life is, would give anything to be back there.

    Hi Vh383, welcome to the community and thank you for sharing your story.

    Definitely sounds like you're sick of the cycle, and eager to get out. I hear you that hearing about cutting out triggers can get repetitive for you, is there anything that you have found works for you though? Or anything that you think you'd be open to trying out?

    Sorry to hear about your partner, how's she doing?

    take care

    Since that post, we have both stopped. All it took was telling someone and reaching out. Don’t get me wrong it’s hard sometimes, the urge isn’t there for me anymore, I’ve wanted out for a long time. It’s now the mood changes and all the rest of it now I have to control.
    But all in all I we have overcome it.
    Definitely something you don’t want in your life
