I started taking vicodin for back pain and shortly went to oxycontin been to 3 rehabs and most recently started heroin in Feb. of this year. I have lost my biz, my wife, and sold my harley, boat and everything else I owned. I have lost my dignity and self respect. I have recently started using meth to get off heroin have not done heroin in 7 days, but now I am seriously considering death as a way out of this madness. I am so depressed, I have alienated myself from all who cared about me. Please someone give me a reason to live.

Dude, Your in a dark place, i can see. The money I have blown on dope is staggering as well, I mean STAGGERING. Could have bought and paid for a house, a nice house.. all wasted.
But the reason to hang on is that you can come back from this, alot have, and have rebuilt what they have lost. I am in that process as well. And at first it seemed unsurmountable, but I am getting there. You can too, it takes time though. Hang on brother, just hang on, there has to be one thing you can focus on that can get you through to the other side.

Regards,
Tom

Hi Mike and welcome. TCCME said it best. "Hang on brother, just hang on". Chase recovery like you chased you drugs. Please find an NA/AA meeting and GO. JUST GO. So many here have been in your shoes. As addicts we like to have things change overnight. It is a one day at a time and when you can focus on recovery-the sky is the limit. Please don't ever give up hope.
Keep coming back. Let us know how you are doing.
Dawn
