On Friday I attempted to take my own life. I tried to take my own life due to my dependency on cocaine. I ended up being found by the police in a field near to my home. I was taken to the hospital where I was assessed by the mental health team and the nurses and sent home with my mum.
I have moved home where I am trying to recover from what I tried to do and piece my life back together slowly. I ended up in debt and am struggling to conquer the addiction. I am seeking help from drug addiction groups and my family. I haven't told anyone about this. Only work knows I had taken an overdose. I just felt the need to vent.

it`s so sad that one so young has to think that death is the only escape.. I`m glad you were found, i`m also glad you have admitted your addiction, and are seeking help... there is always hope..
It will be a struggle, any addiction is tough to beat....
Here`s to your success, and i do think you will be successful at beating this thing.
Good luck. x
Im really sorry to hear this hun, as Jan said, it is so sad that someone so young feels the need to try and escape this world when there is so much to live for. I don't know about drug addiction personally, and I'm sure other people will be along shortly to give you advice about that but all I will say is the forum and everyone on here is here if you need to vent/rant etc :hug:
Sounds like you'd benefit from a bit more than just "positive vibes" - sounds like you'd benefit from a complete lifestyle transplant.
Who are the "addiction groups", how badly do you want to live (if you could be happy), and how badly do you want to be clean?
Tom, I am glad you have moved home and I am glad you are ok. I think it is good that you have come back to posted on the forum. Be strong mate you are worth more xxxxx
