You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice.

Things were finally getting in line
But my head it was all in a bind
Thinking relapse but wanting recovery
All these emotions i have to handle on my own
Finally remembering i never have to do this alone
I cant get these triggers under control
Looking back NA was always there
Knowing people like me were able to help
I got so many people who care
And all I do I say f*** you
I have to remember I'll always be addicted
Eventually it could have me convicted
Have to get past step four
Looking back who was I, Ew
I hate what this disease has made me
All I know is I need to be something new
I keep scaring, disappointing, and embarrassing my family
This is not what I want,It'll get better eventually
Need to stop reminiscing in the past
Its only going to make me worse
Hey, Next time it may be my last
Looking back I was horrible
I could have been killed, but marijuana was worth the risk
Don't know what I was thinking I was stupid
Apparently I thought it was worth it
Lost all my love, memories, care, everything
I was pushing everyone away
But hell always think just for today
Moment by moment, minute by minute
Looking back that girls not me

The author's comments:
The reason I wrote this poem is because this is what I've been through, my addiction got really bad and it landed me in White Deer Run Rehab. They are the ones who taught me Just for Today, and Moment by moment. Live the life you want to, You don't want to have to be an addict forever. You have to want to change, if not then your addiction can lead to jails, institutions, or death. Live your life to the fullest, be yourself !
