Really Tough Time

Posted by | January 29, 2014 | Drugs & Alcohol | One Comment

Hi, I am going through a really tough time in my life. My parents just divorced and I started smoking heroin almost every day. I cannot stop but it helps me forget all the problems I have. I think my girlfriend knows about it but it’s tough to talk to her because I am so ashamed.

I just don’t know what to do, I want to end it all, I feel like the world would be better off and my parents will get back together if I am gone because I made them divorce. I don’t know what to do. ​

    Thank you so much for reaching out for help! It sounds like you have a lot of different things going on right now and it is understandable that you are feeling overwhelmed. Not having anyone to talk with about this doesn’t make it any easier. It is really great that you’re writing in for some support and suggestions.

    We are very concerned for your safety because of your thoughts of suicide and daily drug use. We understand you are upset by the divorce but please understand your parents made that decision and it has nothing to do with you. They would be devastated if they lost you. Finding healthy and positive ways to cope with how you’re feeling would be very beneficial before any of this escalates. Your safety is definitely our number one concern. If you ever feel that you cannot keep yourself safe please call 911 right away.

    Talking about your feelings is certainly never easy but you absolutely do not have anything to be ashamed about. You do not have to go through this on your own. You mentioned your girlfriend and she could very well be a great support to help you thought this. We would also encourage you to talk with your school guidance counselor. Having someone outside of the family to talk with may help to get a different perspective on your situation. Please consider it.

    If you would like to talk with one of our counselors, please call 1-800-448-3000. We are here 24/7 to talk with you.

    Take care,

    Candi, Counselor
