    Aftermath my addiction

    With my conduct, doctors were pleased
    So from the rehabilitation I get released
    I have been doing meth for past five years
    After my overdose, I was brought here.

    I thought I'll never lead a normal life again
    In the rehabilitation the pain I obtained
    My tongue went dry with repeated vomits
    It felt as though to the death I will freeze
    There was a constant ringing in my ears
    Endless nightmares triggering my fears
    I saw oddly shaped shadows running in and out
    Every joint gave up. I felt weakness throughout.
    I couldn't even tell if I was awake or asleep.
    Paranoia had taken roots in my heart deep.
    Even in this delirium a thought soothed me.
    I'll have defeated by addiction when I leave.

    But my lungs said another story.
    They're habituated to smoke.
    I couldn't preserve my sanity.
    Bring me meth,weed or coke.
    My body rejects everything I eat.
    I sweat profusely because of body heat.
    Disgust turned into aggression before I knew.
    I took a stool nearby and on the doctor I threw.
    So to the iron bars they chain me.
    Now just look at the changed me.

    I promise that I'll never do drugs again.
    I promise that I'll never be an addict again.
    Because getting rid of an addiction is a painful task.
    I'm thankful to those days in rehab that I've passed.
    With my conduct the doctors are pleased.
    So from the rehab , I'll finally be released.

    A good presentation. It is very difficult to come out of bad habits and addictions. But if we come out of that habit, our life will be smooth. A good post.

    Excellent scary narration that depicts the life of an addict who undergoes change and comes reformed as a person. In all the darkness and suffering, the person comes out shining because he's human again. Yes, fighting addiction is difficult, its even more difficult not to go on the slippery slope once more. May movies, documentaries and experts say that all it takes is one little drink, one little lick of the drug and in no time the entire rehab program becomes useless. It takes willpower,constant family and intense desire to kick the habit.

    The author has created a nice piece revolving around withdrawal symptoms that substance abuse addicts face, during rehab.

    When we hear the word addiction, we think about the drug addiction only. Addiction makes us to lose our senses and misbehave and misconduct. Doctors, advisors, councelling and jail cannot help. Will power is the only way to come out from such addiction. Otherwise one has to lead a ruined life on this earth. The author has taken pain to kill the addiction and get released.

    The ordeal of a drug addict was well narrated and if one reads the content they transport in to the shoe of the drug addict and his recapture. Nice way to present the Tow topic in new way.
