Hi, my name is Asia! I am a 51-year-old male black man; a 25-year welder in fell 20 feet broke my back after six years on the job. I fell into a depression after I got home. I had a girlfriend that was an alcoholic and a drug user, so I came back out of the hospital started using K2 with her as a way to self-medicate. In May 20
17, I went to Urgent Care at the VA hospital and stayed in a sober living environment for one year. However I maintained contact with my girlfriend at the time, and I continued 2 dips and dab with K2 when I came home on the weekends, and I struggle with that still, but I’m successful with hardly drinking anymore.
I met a beautiful woman that I’ve known for a long time I encouraged her to go to rehab White Deer Run to get clean because I could not get sober with distractions in my life. So hopefully, she comes back in a couple weeks. Being right and clean, I stopped smoking 3 days ago.
Short-term I find going out, makes me feel a little better to walk around breathe fresh air clear, my mind a little bit. I was kind of calm down after that but an hour or two later these things creep back up. I’m currently trying to do everything that I can think of outside of going away for any duration of time.
I can’t do that right now, so I have to find other ways to get through this, and this serves as a vessel, and it helps me feel so right just kind of get this out a little bit. Today is Martin Luther King Jr’s holiday; I will go for counselling or outpatient treatment of some sort. I don’t know if this is the best advice, but I know K2 it’s not good for you.
The best way to quit it’s just to start some kind of way and follow through and use tools and talk to people and get those thoughts out of your mind to clear your soul. This is going to be a difficult challenge at this time because bad habits are hard to break but I made my mind up now, and this one is going to get crushed. God bless, be strong take care.
