Addiction recovery stories have the power to either completely alter your view of an addiction or completely destroy it. Stories like this happen every single day, and each person will need to select which ones are true. It is important to note that a true addiction recovery story cannot be fabricated or altered in any way, shape or form. If you’re looking for a new addiction recovery story to add to your addiction scrapbook then you’re in the right place. I was a teenager when I became addicted to cocaine. For me, addiction recovery stories tend to be about a teenager getting hooked on cocaine, cutting off contact with their friends and family and then wallowing in the pain of addiction. That’s not what happened to me. I was a young adult who developed a crush on an older man.

He was my cousin. We were in high school. The summer before my senior year, I went with my cousin to my grandparents house for the weekend. I had just broken up with my boyfriend, so I decided to spend the night with my cousin. My cousin and I had a great time because we weren’t supposed to be spending time with him anyway and he was such a sweet boy. The following morning I woke up and went to the bathroom. As soon as I got out of the shower I noticed that my nose was stuffed up with sweat and saliva and I knew I was feeling bad. I was starving and my body felt like it needed to eat something. When I walked into my grandparents room that morning I noticed that the linens on the bed were messed up and there was evidence of a bathtub leak that had occurred during the night.

Addiction recovery stories outcomes

My grandmother was standing over me holding onto her hair as she berated me for and for not having the willpower to get off the couch and start saving myself and my sister’s life. She was telling me her addiction recovery stories in a really nasty tone but she didn’t seem angry or anything like that. She put her arm around me and gave me one of those big gentle hugs and said that I was lucky to have her in my life. The way she held me, it seemed as if she really loved me. All of her addiction recovery stories were extremely positive and helped me understand what I was doing wrong. One of the things she said was that all addiction is mental and physical addictions. This made sense to me because even though my addiction was physical I had been in physical pain for most of my life. After learning what she had to say, I realized that I needed to do something to myself to change the physical cravings.
