For those who have long term sobriety, what was the catalyst and how did you find the motivation and steps to lead a better life?

>>30572 Around 30 years off the lot, heroin being the drug of choice. Righto here we go. At nearly 40 didn't have any cash for my rented room which was paid weekly. Had lost my profession and various businesses over the previous decade and a half due to dope. Whole life was about getting more drugs. Okay, I'm old, nearly 70, so glad one day I said no more. Just stopped, cold turkey in a detox from methadone (30ml daily) plus top ups of smack and codeine. Very painful. Tell you more if you want, let me know. I have other posts on this subject in the opiates discussion maybe 4 or 5 pages in.

I weighed the pros and cons and decided wasting my life drinking all day every day was not the way to go. It's taken a lot of work but I'm feelin pretty good now. Meditation, therapy, group therapy, and proper medication helps a fuckton.

damn, 70 years old and posting on an imageboard? about drugs? thats actually really interesting. my only question is if would be willing to post proof? or link to the /opi/ thread if you dont mind

actually i have another question. this is morbid (and not coming from a cruel place but a 'asking a more experienced man for advice' place) but just how much do you regret your life? your addiction? what would you say to a young man stunting his life through substance addiction?

>>30604 I think there are two of us oldies about 70yr old on this thread. In case you are asking me about regrets well, no I had a great time and would not have missed it for the world, so to speak. But then I was lucky to not have a conviction, never found guilty in court. Pure luck and thus from 40 years old rebuilt a life, probably luck again but it happened. I also learned a lot about myself in the years after quitting, not immediately but around the 25 year mark to now. I have friends who also got clean and ended up in the rehab field, not a lot because most people die eventually but some cleaned up and in general I think their theories are full of shit, but that's me maybe, cant be told anything. Dope still is fascinating and that's why I read High Times back in the day and 420 chan these days. As said in previous posts over in opiate discussions (now page six) I became a punk and reveled in the scene and music. Without the Heroin addiction I might not have done that. I was a trained dancer and would be listening to Stravinsky not Las Vulpress or Iggy Pop. Regrets,I think my life is pretty good, love my job.

>>30621 Dear Dorkette, I posted here because it's a detox board and secondly was asked a question and proceeded to answer it. Having detoxed off smack 30 years ago Occasionally I might say something but not often.
