Janna was a 33-year-old married mother of three when she started shooting heroin. She went into treatment and was sober for three years, but relapsed. Now 36, she has recommitted herself to sobriety....
Everyday, people start on the path of addiction without even realizing. It starts with a single drink, or the puff of a joint. It may seem harmless enough at first, and for many it is. For some, however, it is the start of a lifelong battle with drug addiction.
For many, alcohol or marijuana is the first substance they experiment with. It is easy to rationalize use, especially when so many of ones’ peers are using with no foreseeable harm. The next day, the addict will simply awake and life goes on as usual. At that moment they don’t feel like an addict because things haven’t gotten out of control and it hasn’t become habitual, but the seed of addiction has been planted.
People all too often don’t realize that they are becoming addicted until the damage is done. In hindsight, it is easy for people to recognize when the problem began, but at the start, it is difficult to see what problems lay ahead.
