I Was A Drug Addict And A Alcoholic
I used to go church with my gran and when my gran died my life died too.
My mum didn't know how to express love and show me any emotional support, so our relationship broke down. I started bunking off school, hanging with the wrong crowd, smoking cannabis, drinking and at time's not going home after school thinking my mum didn't care.
I got pregnant at 15. By then I was in foster care cause my mum couldn't cope with my behavior. She was in a new relationship and was pregnant the same as me.
When I had my son I wanted to move back to my mum's. To my surprise, she said no and I had to live in a mother's and baby's unit.
I felt so rejected by my mum. I was so depressed I started to go out and leave my son with a carer at the unit and my drug use got worse. I was doing ecstasy, cocaine,crack and cannabis.
My life got worse and worse. I had more kids and wasn't looking after any as the drugs took over my life.
My mum didn't support me.
But, it was God who I was praying to all through my using and God answered my prayers.
I have one of my kids now and I am clean and getting my life back on track thanks to GOD ! I am so grateful!
