A New Low Everyday

by Nicole Arenar

I started using drugs after an accident with a gun. I totally shot myself in the leg while someone was stealing the gas from my car. I was in that half asleep state where I was aware of my surroundings but unable to wake myself.

It was a very terrifying experience and I still suffer from PTS. There was one surgery, a mesh graph of the femoral artery and then came the drugs! I was prescribed narcotic pain medication that became my life after only a couple months.

It took years for me to become a thief and prostitute, but every day I lost a piece of my conscience and a piece of myself. I drove away family and hurt everyone I knew. I can't imagine how they would look at me if they truly knew the things I'd seen and done.

I have much more to tell if you are interested. My story is long and shocking and full of dangerous illegal and horridly immoral tales.

This story is true and I am proud to say that I have been clean of narcotic pain medication for nearly a year now. I am happy and ready to begin a whole new chapter of my life.

Our Past
by: Veronica of The Treatment Center

Your story reminds me of the today's daily mediation reading in the Just For Today book.

"We want to look our past in the face, see it for what it really was, and release it so we can live today."
