I did it, finally! (TW: drugs)

To those of you who know what I’ve been going through for the past couple of years…

I finally did it. I finally quit drugs. Two weeks sober. I finally left my toxic ex-boyfriend. I’m staying with a friend of mine, and he’s taking good care of me. I feel like I’m healing a lot already.

I’m proud of myself, even if I’m still having other struggles.

That boyfriend was no good for you and neither were the drugs.

Be proud of yourself.

It’s so tough giving up substances but glad your on the path to wellness. Some people can be oh so toxic and I’m glad you’ve moved on. It’s always a work in progress so be kind to yourself. It really is important.

What kind of drugs you were using if may I ask? I have of occasional drug use past myself also, weed just triggers my psychosis instantly, the only drug that worked as it should with sz was cocaine

I’m so happy for you :slight_smile:
I did a similar thing 6 years ago. Left a toxic partner who kept pushing me to do drugs with him.

I had a lot of moments wondering if I’d done the right thing and doubting if I’d ever recover. But ultimately, it was one of the few things in my life I’ve done right.

He did a great job at convincing me no one would ever love me or care about anything I had to say. But time and time again, the universe has proved him wrong.

Feel free to message me if you need to talk. I know when I left him, I had a lot of moments where I considered going back to him. Especially because he kept promising he’d changed and was going to treat me right.
Without my friends knocking sense into me, I don’t know if I can honestly say I wouldn’t have done it.

Stay strong, and good luck. You made the right call :heart:

I was on meth, to be honest. It was aggravating my psychosis quite a bit.

Thanks, Miika! I appreciate you opening your DMs for chat about it. It’s hard to not want to go back.

I understand.

For me, because I quit the bf and the drugs at the same time, I couldn’t tell whether what I was feeling was missing him or longing for the drugs.
All I knew was I associated him with something I felt a desperate need for.

A few times I did go back.

He never did change. He never made good on his promise to treat me better or quit the drugs with me.
He just wanted someone nearby to keep as miserable as him to regain a sense of control over his sad life.

Anyways, if you feel like it’s hard to stay strong, don’t be afraid to shoot me a message. Maybe we can talk through it.
