366 days

366 days ago i went and checked myself in rehab bc i didnt wanna go dirty to my court date. At the time that was the only thought on my mind trying to get out of going to jail once again!! When i got out of rehab i really had nowhere to go so my daughters dad said i coulr stay there for a lil bit. A boyfriend i had when i went to rehab kept my car and got pulled over the night before I graduated and went to jail and my car impounded. My mama passer away in august my dad five years ago and im the only child. I really had nowhere to turn. Would have been east to go back out I would have had places to stay there would have been money to be made and back to my usual life. But i didnt want that. I literally picked my feet up one by one and placed them in front of each other. Fwd to now. I just got me a 2012 kia rio5 I been working the same job since February my oldesr son wanted his family back so him and his wife begged me and his sister to move in. I work opposite shifts as they do so when im hone there home and when theyre gone im home. And i just kept picking my feet up one by one and placing them in front of each other and as long as i did that without using i have gotten closer and closer to where i want to be. I was a dealer for a long time so for prob 9 of the months everytime i went somewhere someone was asking me to get them something or if i wanted something and several times tried handing me stuff. But no matter what i did i didn’t use. I dont know how i got to be where i am but im here. And if i can do this anyone can. I always said i wouldnt quit and would get high til the day i died. I didnt realize there was a life like this. So whether you have an hour or a day or ten years clean keep picking your foot up and moving without using. Hope this helps somebody
