Thanks, Tazz, for your story. I have to commend you for your honesty. Sometimes, the worst environments can even bring out the worst in us...and we begin to use whatever substance to help us cope. It doesn't make right or Ok, but it is a very common experience....be it drink, drug, food, overworking, et cetera. Eventually, we do find the inner strength to make changes in our life, positive changes, which changes everything. Your story emphasizes this. I am so proud of your abstinence. Way to go, girl. Very glad you shared what you did. Hope to see you here often on the forum to assist others, sharing your wisdom. Your story is a story of hope for many who may continue to struggle. Thank you.
