Email Pen Pal?

I'm 20 years old.
Looking for someone to talk to about my recovery.
I do have friends and family here for me, but they don't really understand what I'm really going through.
I would like to talk with someone who understands what I am going through..

*I have been addicted to drugs (many different kinds) and alcohol on and off since I was in the 6th grade. I currently smoke to keep the edge off.
I have stopped and recovered a couple times, but something always makes me relapse. I really feel like I was born to be an addict my whole life & it scares me :/

...that's actually a old thread Taylor bumped Hope.

Taylor I'm sure there are lots of folks here who'd love to talk to you either here on the boards or by private message

Welcome, T & K,

You can just post here any time--we're from all over the world, so there's usually someone that can answer.

A rehab program recommends that a sponsor have a year of continuous sobriety and completed the sobriety program of your choice. He or she should be reasonably available to help you.

You can talk in person to someone here.
Someday everything will all make sense.
For now, laugh at confusion, smile through tears,
& remind yourself that everything happens for a reason.
