Welcome Frampbell

I'm sorry for the situation you put yourself in.

I agree with the other posters here tho.
I know you want to fix this but the only real fix for these things is time, and doing right.

When you let down people as much as I did, words meant nothing by the end. Tryong to explain just made it worse.

The fact remains that trying to score for someone else, whatever the altruism, is no way what you should have been doing.

if you where in others shoes I'm sure, fair or not, you'd have doubts about you too now.

You can recover your reputation - but it will take time patience and effort...and a little faith too.

And do it for you, not them.

The fact that people will believe in you again eventually is great, but it's not the main thing - the main thing is you'll have changed - you'll be clean

Frampbell,

Congratulations on 2 months! Your off to a great start!

"I was holding for a friend", "I was buying for a Friend", "I don't know how those got in my car"....those are probably the most told lies in the world by an addict so you have to understand their doubt.

The oldest saying in the book is "Actions speak louder than words". It's going to take time for them to trust and believe you again and how long it takes is up to them. I might take 6 months, 1 year, 2 years but however long it takes is up to them and not you. But they will trust you again as long as you stay the course and it will all be worth it Your actions will speak for themselves.

Say little...do much.

Good luck and stay the course.
