Do you think you are living your life, to its full potential? Are you the best wife, husband, parent, or friend that you can possibly be? Do you try to help those who may need you? Do you try to be honest, hard working, and conciderate of others?

Why or why not?

no i don't b/c for the last 12 years i've been letting something else control my life, it was an addiction one that i could not control one that i used everyday just to get by not to get high just to feel normal, it has affected me and everyone around me it has done nothing but ruin my life and happyness and thats years of my life that i can never get back, years that should have been spent better with my family not the ppl that i thought was my friends. and when u live like that all u do is hurt the ones u love, but what i've found out is no matter how bad u threat your family and how good u treat others when u hit the bottom and look up u have no friends to help just your family who shows you that they love you no matter what. and i know to most ppl it doesn't sound like much but ive been clean and sober for 15 days now and i owe it all to my loving family. and 4 anyone else with this problem and you need someone 2 lean on even if they don't know talk to your family, b/c after the smoke clears they'll help you more than anything or anyone can, take it from someone who knows don't throw away years of your life and years you could spend with your family 4 a pill

Chevy man,it sounds like you are on the right track,just keep it up man and you'll see what God has got in store for you the rest of your life.Just look he has kept you alive for the reasons that only he knows,maybe to be a light for everyone else to go by,or maybe to spread his word.You can be an inspiration for all people in need of help,just got to let the light shine keep your eyes on him and know he's carrying you when you don't think he is, and one way he's doing so is through as you said family will be there for you no matter what,so keep your arms lifted up and look to the heavens and praise him and feel the presence come upon you there is no better feeling than to have that tingle go through your body and know that it is our heavenly father touching us.GOD BLESS YOU AND KEEP LOOKING UP.

Chevy man, im proud of you. 15 days sober is a big deal, and one to be proud of. That in itself is testimony. God can give you the strength you need to carry on, and to fight your addiction. Thats something that noone else can give you. He can take the withdrawl away, and he can give you peace of mind. You have to realize what you mean to your family. And you have to know what your life is worth. The devil tends to fight those who have a calling, those who know the lord, more so than the ones who live their life everyday without the lord. Chevy man, I pray that God puts his arms around you, and sheilds you from your addiction, as you get stronger. I pray that he pours his love on you, and you feel his precense in your time of need. I hope that when you see your old friends, they dont try to influence you. I hope you can shine your light on them, and maybe they will see a change in you, that they would like to have in their own life. God bless you! And you hang in there.

Because I hate everybody. I don't care what color. I'm a prick. Don't bother me.
