Impatiently waiting for my first meeting at the Suboxone clinic NEXT month, I wrote a poem. Hope some can relate so I didn't embarrass myself !! lol

The life of an addict
I'd lie,cheat and steal
I took all these for pain
Until I couldn't feel
Lost my family,my friends
And my beautiful wife
Chose pills over the best thing
To happen in my life
During my sleep
I still reach for you
I understand if you hate me
I hate me, too
I wanted to stop
At times almost there
Can't ask for help
Cause I lost all who cared
I didn't care who I hurt
Didn't care if I died
As overdosing became
A habit of mine
Spent all my money on happiness
Then couldn't pay rent
Although I'm ashamed
Next month I'll do it again
Sitting all alone
With tears in my eyes
Living self centered
is how I kill time
I'm sorry that I hurt you
But you have to believe
It was the life of an addict
It's not really me

APPLAUSE, APPLAUSE, APPLAUSE.... That's beautiful, blue. Did it feel good to write it? Writing, including poetry can be very emotionally cathartic. I hope it made you feel a little bit better, maybe just having gotten it off your chest. I would encourage you to maybe even go so far as to keep a journal during all this. It's a solid therapeutic technique. Thanks for opening yourself up to us and sharing this with us. I really do like it (and I'm not a poetry lover!).

Hang in there. With each day that passes you get closer to your goal.

As I've mentioned on here before, I've been a musician for a long time, and in fact, I'm currently recording an album that's due to be released early next year. Many of my songs over the years have been influenced by my addiction and since getting into recovery it's been very cathartic to write songs about it.

Nice job, blue, I like it

Hi Blue,
I'm not sure how to show that I'm clapping here on line.. But I am giving you a standing "O".. Great job on your poem! i am not into that stuff at all but I really related to it... Very Accurate description of "The Addicts Life" if you ask me.. I hope you are sharing it it in other places. I think that people will relate to it? I hope that you have more to say out here on the Forum. If you need to put it in that form then that's fine. It is just great to hear your thoughts. Keep up the good fight and I wish you well in your Recovery!!!!

God Bless
TW
