My Friend Vineta’s Come Back
Vineta is one of the loveliest people you would want to meet, she is not only a beautiful young lady she’s intelligent, kind and thoughtful but above all that Vineta is a friend.
Unfortunately, my friend who is a successful model got drawn into the seedy world of drink and drugs, the outcome of this story isn’t a sade one though. Please read her story below, with part two to follow shortly.
From Down To Up
It started off at first by going out for a drink then two it was easy I had a bit of money and people would buy me drinks and before I knew it, I was hooked drink after drink but that was just the start of it then I got sucked into drugs. First, it was only occasionally, then every weekend then weekdays too, I would skip the work, look shit, feel utterly shit, I wouldn’t sleep for days. I stopped eating for days at a time, got myself into debt, I fell way behind with all my bills. I had lost control the small bit of gear turned into a lot of gear I was on a downward spiral of abusing my body with the drink and drugs.
One day as I was looking in the mirror what had happened? where was the strong bubbly, beautiful girl that used to be me? It was then I realised she had gone.
I felt so so sad, I wanted to see her again. I had tried to quit myself before, I would go as far as 4 days and start again, it was so clear to me that If I was really going to do this, I was going to need professional help.
I managed to find the strength to get myself into rehab, I entered a programme called 12 steps. I was aiming for a year to be sober, I had to stop the drinking as that was the trigger to get me onto the drugs, I was really caning the coke by then.
Now it is safe to say that I’m smashing!!! I’m attending meetings I’ve been clean for 60 days with no relapses. I feel good although it’s not easy, I’m here, still sober, and right now that’s all that matters.
