“I first started using cocaine, hanging out with my friends, because it was fun.  I continued to use because it gave me such a rush and a feeling of empowerment. I felt like I needed to experience that first high all the time, but I was just, as they say, chasing the dragon. After a while I became easily agitated and impatient getting into arguments with my family and friends. Then the paranoia set in.  I thought that at any moment the police were going to come rushing into my home to take away my drugs and arrest me.  I was out of control.  Once my girlfriend left me I knew I had to do something.  I reached out to a cocaine abuse hotline and asked for help.  I’m still living in a sober living facility, but I’m on my way back.  I want to be high on life, not cocaine.”
