“I always thought AA was for weak people. I would say to myself, ‘I can do this on my own! I’m strong enough! I’m weak if I go to those!’ That’s the hardest thing to get through my mind. I’m NOT weak. I’m a lot stronger than the person who goes out there to buy dope from this guy to fill my bubble. I mean, how hard is that? What IS hard is admitting to yourself that you need help. I’m so glad they have the meetings here every night. We’re a family here. We all have our stories. Hearing someone else speak about what they’re going through keeps me in line.”
