Bexley drug addict case study

PUBLISHED: 09:29 21 December 2012

I got so badly addicted to heroin that my whole life revolved around the drug.

It was just a bit of harmless fun to start with but it was less fun when I became addicted to heroin for five years. I started experimenting as a teenager with cannabis and gradually progressed onto harder drugs.

During the holiday season the temptation is heightened but Signpost have been a Godsend.

From waking up to going to sleep, I was consumed by it.

Thankfully I’ve been clean for over a decade thanks to a lot of counselling and support, but Christmas is still a tough time. It makes you reflect on how many years you’ve wasted due to drugs. Hopefully my addiction will stay a thing of the past this Christmas.
