5 years ago I the the decision to become clean and sober. When I was 17 I started to snort cocaine and shoot up. I would do it with a friend named Travis. It's just something we did. We were junkies. We would get high and just lay there and talk about things.  It was just something we always were used to. We both came from a bad back round and we knew it was no excuse but we just did it anyway. We each had our own needles and our own drugs.. We never shared with anyone. The only thing we shared was the drug itself every so often when one of us was out. Then when I was 18 I started to work at a ***** club. At first I was a waitress then I became a dancer. The customers would give me the cocaine.  I know it was a bad thing now, but I was such a junkie at the time that I didn't think. Then I met my now husband. And yes, he was a junkie too. I know what you are thinking - 2 junkies not good. Then one day Travis and I were talking and I was telling him about Tom. He told me to take him to NY and see how that goes. Well, we went and about half way up there we both realized that the other one didn't have anything. (A good thing though) and then I stopped at a rest station. At that moment, in the bathroom, at the Maryland House, I looked in the mirror. I don't know if it was me coming down or the light or what it was but I saw myself the way I was. There were dark bags under my eyes. I was very scrawny. I threw water on my face thinking it was my imagination. It wasn't. I exited the bathroom and saw one of those weigh yourself for a quarter things. So I did it. Now I am 5 foot 2 inches. When I got on the scale it read to me 83lbs. I haven't been that light since I was 9 years old!! I got back in the car. Sat behind the wheel. That's when I knew it was time to become sober. I have been sober now for 5 years. It hasn't been easy. But it's a good road to walk down...
