Everything's Blurry

Ten Facts You Might Not Know About Stamp Duty

 

It was graduation day and at long last, it was the last day of my 7 years in college. I felt like 200 pounds of weight is off my back that’s been bothering me for 7 years. I still can’t forget the feeling. Never. During that graduation night I invited a couple of friends over for a party. I had a rented apartment with no housemates. My parents are miles away. We drank, we danced, we partied. College had been the toughest part of my life at that moment. I knew I was a smart guy, but I just had no clear plan. I went to take on the wrong course twice. I failed a lot of times. My family wasn’t very proud of me they almost forgot they have a son. But I was a good son, a good person. My friends love me and people like to be around me. But I was sad, very sad. I always thought I wasn’t doing enough. I always felt empty and unaccomplished. After all, my friends and classmates are way younger than me.

During that fateful graduation night, I felt different. It was so different it felt weird. But it was good. I felt like I mattered. Dad called me up telling me how proud he was of me. My friends keep telling me I am the smartest of them all. Best of all, I now have a degree! It was just amazing. I looked at myself in the mirror and I said, now you’re talking! Just right after 2am that night a friend approached me privately. He handed me something and said it was a gift. That guy was a close friend. I helped him a lot financially for so many times. His family is one of the less fortunate ones. The gift he handed over was actually meth, and at that time, I had no idea. I even thought it was a prank. When it got serious I hesitated. But they insisted and told me it was okay. So I did take it.

After I graduated from college I had so many visions of myself. Plans had been going through my mind for the duration of the graduation ceremony. I was overly excited of the life ahead of me. I thought of a career, a family, a car, and a fortune! Ironically, it only took me less than a day to destroy everything when I took that meth on that fateful night.  The celebration actually went on for three straight days. We used meth for three straight days. When the dust settled down, I rested for about 2 days. At that time, I was surprised about what I felt. I felt like I was empty again and I wanted to go out and party again. But that didn’t happen. Because of that, I felt sick. I was angry at people for no reason at all. My head hurt so much and I didn’t even want to eat. So I thought if I was going to use again, this will all go. So I did. And it felt good once again. And then the cycle went on for weeks. Then it went on for months. That was the time my parents went over to see me. They were so disappointed I never went home after grad. When they arrived I can still remember how devastated they were to see how I messed up. I had no money, did not eat for days, I almost died. That was the day I was made to realize I had an addiction. I had destroyed my life.

Today, after years of being clean and sober, with the help of my family, I have now a successful life. I run my own software company and my family has never been so happy. Addiction to meth has taught me a lot of things. It taught me that with a single try, everything can be upside down. It taught me the value of my family. My recovery wasn't easy but the rehab therecoveryvillage.com truly made me recover. One thing is for sure though; you need to recognize what's happening to you for you to turn things around. Taking that meth made everything blurry, but the tears of my mom gave me a set of eyeglasses to see from afar
