Hi there, just joined up and wanted to say hello, I'm 38 years old and drugs have been a massive problem in my life for a long time. I started taking drugs at the age of 13, first cannabis, then LSD and mushrooms, by the time I was 17 I started injecting heroin, speed. At 23 I was on my ass and managed to get help via residential rehab and NA meetings, Met my partner and had three boys, I was off the drugs for about 6-7 years before relapsing on cannabis, a few years on and I also started drinking alcohol daily and taking mdma at weekends (not every weekend). Then out of the blue two years ago I got endocarditis, nearly died and now have a metalic heart valuve, started drinking before I even left hospital and not long after that started the cannabis again, one positve was that I stopped smoking tabacco and started vaping, which I still do.
I also suffer with poor mental health and have done since the age of 18, I gave up the drink about 6 months ago and also stopped the weed about 4 weeks ago, unforunatly my mental health got worse and the relationship with my partner has broken down, friday I drank five cans of Stella and passed out at 8pm last night I couldn't sleep and took 10mgs of Valium, and this morning I took 360mgs of condeine phosphate and vaped some weed, I'm on my ass again and needed somewhere to vent so came here.
