I hate myself for relapsing

I started taking Cocaine about a year and a half ago at first it was just weekends, then week days and soon before I realised I was taking it most days. I stopped taking it and was so proud of myself as hadn’t touched it for 3 weeks so was 3weeks clean..I was feeling better in myself, and felt like I had gained control of my life back and but then I went out one night and stupidly I relapsed and took some and I am so disappointed and angry in myself, I had got so far and now I have just ruined it. I feel so sad and so low about it.

Loz - dont beat yourself up about it, youre bound to relapse at some point, its a normal part of recovery. Get back on track - I would personally avoid going out and drinking. Detach yourself from anyone/anywhere that potentially could cause you to relapse.

You went 3 weeks without it which is amazing.. you can do this, go to the doctors and get some help and go to support groups thatll help.

Get a hobby, read, go to the gym - avoid social situations where coke is likely to be present - just until you feel you have control.

Good luck x

My main trigger is alcohol. The minute im drinking..im getting it dropped off asap.

Watch louise clarke on you tube about crack n cocaine. She will help you and make u aware how to deal with cravings. Shes great
