This is what no support worker prepares you for. It ain’t going to be easy but you can do it!
There is always going to be the memory of the “good feeling” but our brain seems to block the bad bits – dope sick, skint, body aches, falling back into reality…
Every time you get upset, get into an argument, every single time your mind goes down, your brain will pull you towards that sweet brown powder, promising to make everything disappear. You might give in but you’ll only end up back in the real world.
Be strong and every single craving you beat will only make you stronger and proud.
It ain’t easy at first but… There is life after heroin!
