Hello everyone my name is Taylor. I'm a recovering opiate addict I have been clean for a little over 2 years now. I struggle daily. I seem to have issues with depression and have a lot of remorse for previous decisions made. I'm looking for people who I can vent to and relate to as well. Please feel free to message me anytime

Hi and welcome Taylor - you'll find a lot of support here and encouragement.
Congrats on 2 years

I think there comes a time when we have to forgive ourselves anbd draw a distinction between who we used to be and who we are now.

I try to live right and do good things - it helps others and helps me to feel good about myself too?

Welcome Taylor, and congrats on the 2 years.

When it comes to depression, have you seen a doctor?

Remorse, many on here know that. Once you realize you can't change the past and you have to deal with things as they are now, you'll see remorse is not necessary.

Just wondering, what were you addicted to? And do you currently have any addictions of any kind?
