15 pessoas que venceram as drogas e compartilharam suas conquistas online

De acordo com um levantamento nacional sobre o uso de drogas pela população brasileira feito pela Fundação Oswaldo Cruz (Fiocruz), cerca de 5 milhões de brasileiros consumiram drogas ilícitas no último ano ao menos uma vez, o que equivale a 3,2% da população.

Em outras palavras, a toxicodependência é um problema de saúde nacional (e global) que atinge mais pessoas do que parece.

Para servir de inspiração e mostrar que é possível se livrar dos vícios, separamos abaixo 15 pessoas que venceram as drogas e compartilharam suas conquistas online.

01. “Fui criada na fé e cantei no coral da igreja, mas as drogas não se importam com o seu passado. A imagem à esquerda é resultado do vício em metanfetamina. Uma infecção atacou meu sangue, pulmões e coração. Foram necessárias sete semanas de antibióticos e cirurgia cardíaca antes de eu estar pronta para mudar qualquer coisa. A imagem à direita sou eu hoje. Minha vida é completamente diferente e finalmente sei o que é ser feliz.”

02. “Os filmes de drama eram realidade cotidiana para mim. Na foto à esquerda, eu tinha acabado de acordar no hospital com uma órbita fraturada. Eu me odiava e odiava tudo. Hoje, estou viva, feliz, agradecido e sóbria há quatro anos!”

My name is Meghan and I’m an addict. I always used to say it took me about 4 years to lose everything to heroin, but that isn’t true. It took me exactly 30 seconds to lose it all. That’s how long it takes to pour a bag into a spoon, mix it into a shot, and jab it into your arm. It was all over from there. All I ever wanted was another hit. My lowest point was when they took my daughter away. I couldn’t settle for that so I fought back. Getting clean was the most difficult thing I ever did. It takes a long time to undo all that damage, but I’ll get there. Clean and sober since 3-12-19. #TheAddictsDiary#stigma #addictionrecovery #addiction #drugaddicts #dope #heroin #fentanyl #odaat #drug #epidemic #blog #viral #miracle #female #junkie #wedorecover

03. “Esse era eu 613 dias atrás, quando fui para a reabilitação. Fisicamente, mentalmente e emocionalmente devastado. 613 dias depois, eu ainda estou limpo, e só olho para o passado para aprender com isso.”

04. “Meu nome é Meghan e sou viciada em drogas. Eu sempre disse que levei quatro anos para perder tudo o que tinha para a heroína, mas isso não é verdade. Demorou exatamente 30 segundos, porque esse é o tempo necessário para obter uma dose, injeta e se viciar. Foi quando tudo acabou. Ficar limpa é a coisa mais difícil que já fiz. Demora muito tempo para reparar todo o dano que você causou, mas estou no caminho certo. Fiquei sóbria em 3 de dezembro de 2019.”

The first photo to the left was me in my active addiction, using meth, fentanyl, and just about anything I could get my hands on. Homeless, sleeping in cars, on sidewalks, behind dumpsters, or just about anywhere I could find. A complete prey to misery and depression—I was on the verge of suicide. The picture to the right is me with 72 days clean. I have never felt so much better about myself than I do right now. I currently have 75 days clean and sober from all mind-altering substances. I am so very grateful for this program, the 12 steps, and my higher power, for they have brought light back into my life. I’m pregnant with my son as well, and he’s a huge motivation for my sobriety, but I’m staying clean for myself. #TheAddictsDiary #drugaddiction #sobermemes #beforeandafter #recoveringaddict #soberlife #suicideprevention #sober #sobriety #sobrietyrocks #drug #hope #faith #god #godfirst #godisgood #spirituality #spiritualawakening #spirit #spiritualjourney #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillness #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealth

05. “Hoje estou limpa há 30 dias e não tomo mais heroína ou metanfetamina!”

Following my mum’s death on Christmas day, I had a 10 year downwards spiral with alcohol and drug addiction. This eventually lead to me fighting for my life in hospital. I have since turned my life around by choosing the life of sobriety. It has been a tough but rewarding process for me! I am now buzzing off life in recovery and helping other addicts, alcoholics, and people with mental health issues. My recovery is the most important thing I have. I want to share it with other people, to help them and show them there is a way out of addiction. I am now happy, motivated, sober, and living my best life in sobriety! #TheAddictsDiary #blog #spirituality #blogger #addiction #addict #drugaddiction #drug #recovery #recoverymemes #sober #soberlife #sobriety #soberliving #odaat #spirituality #spirit #mentalhealth #mentalhealthmatters #mentalillness #god #godisgood #godfirst #teachersofinstagram #alcohol #alcoholicsanonymous #alcoholic #hope #faith #hopeful #coronamemes

06. “A foto à esquerda foi tirada na época do meu pior vício, quando eu usava metanfetamina, fentanil e praticamente qualquer coisa em que conseguisse pôr as mãos. Sem casa, dormindo em um carro, na calçada ou atrás do lixo. Eu estava à beira do suicídio. A foto à direita me representa após 72 dias de sobriedade. Eu nunca me senti tão bem.”

I keep that picture to remind myself where it took me, where I was. I felt defeated. I look at the other picture and I think, 'Wow, I did it.' Today I celebrate my life! 6yrs clean from the grips of meth addiction! If you are still in the midst of this ugly nightmare please know there is hope. You too can beat this and have a beautiful life. It is NEVER too late. Forgive yourself and know that you are worthy! I am blessed to have the love and forgiveness of all that love me! I love my life and I love all my friends and family that have always supported me. #TheAddictsDiary#selflove #manipulation #narcansaves #narcan #recoverymemes #wedorecover #we #god #godisgood #godfirst #sober #alcohol #alcoholicsanonymous #alcoholic #drug #drugaddictionrecovery #drugaddicts #drugawareness #spirituality #spiritual #spiritualawakening #hope #faith #fear #fearless

07. “Depois que minha mãe morreu no dia de Natal, caí em um abismo de dez anos de álcool e drogas. Até eu lutar para sobreviver no hospital. Desde então, venho tentando colocar minha vida em ordem novamente. Enquanto isso, estou curtindo minha vida sóbria e ajudando outros viciados em drogas. Minha recuperação é minha realização mais importante.”

08. “Eu guardo essa foto para me lembrar do estado em que eu estava. Hoje estou comemorando minha vida! Seis anos de abstinência e eu escapei das garras do meu vício em metanfetamina!”

For as long as I can remember I leaned on some sort of substance to cope with day to day living. I had low self-worth, low self-esteem, and was full of anger and self-hatred. I've always considered myself a functional addict and couldn't imagine a life without drugs. I often wondered how people live and cope with life without them. I lived on this fine line of holding everything together while being a complete mess at the same time. I was broken, and I knew I was broken and had no idea how to get better. Two years ago I started to IV drugs, I had started my downtown spiral. I remember crying at Christmas because I had no money to buy my family gifts when just hours before I was spending a hundred on coke and fentanyl. Life was getting unbearable but my family held on and supported me the best way they knew how. Eventually, they had to let go, they were unwilling to continue to watch me kill myself. They put it in God's hands. Feeling so alone was the desperation I needed to get better. I decided I needed to start over, completely. I checked myself into detox and went right to rehab, from rehab I went to a halfway house. Today I have my own apartment, I have a vehicle, I start school in July to help addicts, just like myself cope with life. I always thought I would be weak if I asked for help, I convinced myself that if I didn't say out loud that I'm an addict that it wouldn't be true. I'm living my best life. I have an amazing relationship with my family, I have real friends and I have a purpose. Today I celebrate 9 months of sobriety. I'm no longer ashamed to admit that I'm an addict. In fact, I'm proud to be the person I am today. #TheAddictsDiary #stigma #addictionrecovery #junkie #thief #heroin #meth #wedorecover #theaddictsdiary #blog #hope #miracle #mom #mother #society #spirituality #mental #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #odaat #drugaddicts #addiction #addictionrecovery #drug #drugaddict #drugaddictionrecovery #soberlife #sober #soberaf #sobermovement #God

09. “Difícil de acreditar que estou limpo há 800 dias. Quando olho para a foto, lembro-me de querer morrer o tempo todo. Às vezes eu não me importava e queria desistir. Estou feliz por não ter desistido!”

10. “Desde que me lembro, eu precisava de substâncias para lidar com o dia a dia. Eu tinha pouca autoconfiança e estava cheio de raiva e ódio. Sempre me considerei um viciado ativo e não conseguia imaginar a vida sem drogas.”

11. “Meu nome é Emerald. No ano passado, meu vício em heroína e metanfetamina me levaram a morar em quartos de hotel e abrigos. Meus dois filhos foram tirados de mim. Eu não era nada além de uma concha vazia. Hoje já se passaram 21 meses desde o último uso de drogas, tenho a custódia dos meus dois filhos e, pela primeira vez na vida, encontrei a paz.”

My name is Emerald. The last year of my heroin and meth addiction had me living in motel rooms and shelters. Both of my sons were taken from me. I was a shell of a human being. Today, I am 21 months drug free! I have custody of both of my boys and I have found peace for the first time in my life. With all the division on Facebook lately, share this to let everyone know that recovery is possible! #TheAddictsDiary #stigma #addictionrecovery #junkie #heroin #meth #wedorecover #theaddictsdiary #blog #hope #miracle #mom #mother #society #spirituality #mental #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #odaat #drugaddicts #addiction #addictionrecovery #drug #drugaddict #drugaddictionrecovery #soberlife #sober #soberaf #sobermovement #godisgood

12. “Foi exatamente um ano atrás hoje. Um ano são 12 meses ou 365 dias ou 8.760 horas ou 525.600 minutos ou 31.536.000 segundos … e ainda estou aqui.”

View this post on Instagram

Today, June 3rd 2020 marks my one year… that’s 1 year, or 12 months, or 365 days, 8760 in hours, 525,600 in minutes, 31,536,000 in seconds… & I’m still standing. If you told me a year and a week ago that I’d be clean, back home on Long Island, working, paying my bills, owning a new truck, and having a solid relationship with my family again, I’d probably not be listening and thinking about how I could turn a profit instead so I could go waste my life some more. You see, drugs changed me and stole years of my life while destroying everything I ever loved and worked hard for. But I’m not that girl anymore. I stood up against my demons and took back control of my life. Just when I thought my life was about to end, reported missing for three months, filthy, homeless living in a bando & absolutely hopeless… I found myself on my knees looking up for the very first time. They say when you’re down the only way to go is up. I reached out and my family was there and got me the help I desperately needed. My life did a complete turn around and things just keep getting better. Recovery has given me a life beyond my wildest dreams. Some days are harder than others but it’s true, my worst day clean is better than my best day high. When I left the trenches I went forward full force and never ever looked back. I’m thankful for those I’ve crossed paths with along the way… I truly believe that everything happens for a reason- and it’s either a lesson or a blessing. I’m beyond grateful to my family whose supported, forgiven and loved me through it all. Blessed to be able to say I’m truly in recovery, but reminded daily how suddenly it all can be taken from me. To those we’ve lost along the way… I think about you every single day and I pray for your constant shield of protection. This life is a gift and recovery is a journey taken one day at a time, every single day. From homeless and hopeless to one whole year clean today. It’s a miracle to say the very least, but against all odds… we do recover. Just for today every single day one day at a time. Thanks for letting me share. 🖤🤍1️⃣🖤 #TheAddictsDiary #drugaddiction #wedorecover #sober #soberlife #sobriety #soberliving

13. “Tenho um buraco no coração, mas nos últimos 53 dias me recuperei muito. Eu tenho um carro, estou voltando ao trabalho. O relacionamento com minha mãe nunca esteve melhor, muito menos com meu filho. Eu nunca pensei que iria tão longe novamente.”

I have a hole in my heart. I’ve been in countless trap houses. I’ve stood shoulder to shoulder with a man when he was shot. I could go on, but here I am. I’ve completely bettered myself. In the last 53 days. I have gotten a lot back. I have a car. I’ve gotten back to work. My relationship with my mom has never been this good, not to mention the relationship I’ve rebuilt with my son! I never thought that I would be able to get to this point in my life. I thought that I was going to die an addict. But for whatever reason, whether it be a higher power or just my damn luck, I’m still here and I will forever be grateful for the people that stood by my side. #TheAddictsDiary #stigma #addictionrecovery #junkie #heroin #meth #wedorecover #theaddictsdiary #blog #hope #miracle #mom #mother #society #spirituality #mental #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #odaat #drugaddicts #addiction #addictionrecovery #drug #drugaddict #drugaddictionrecovery #soberlife #sober #soberaf #sobermovement #God

14. “Meu nome é Jordan e sou viciado. Eu usei heroína e metanfetamina nos últimos dez anos da minha vida. Muitas vezes tomei muito e, portanto, sempre estive em situações de risco de morte. Eu era sem-teto, minha família cortou laços. Fiz tratamento oito vezes, nunca realmente participei de um programa. Mas nunca parei de tentar.”

My name is Jorden and I’m an addict. I have used heroin and meth for the last ten years of my life. Just to keep it short and sweet, my inability to deal with life lead to me to a needle and spoon. I lived in complete misery and dereliction for years, feeling sorry for myself and using anyone I could to get my next shot of dope. I’ve had multiple overdoses and many other life threatening situations as a result of my addiction. I lived homeless for years and my family didn’t know what else to do with me. I’ve also been to treatment 8 times, each time I never fully surrendered to any type of program or new way of life. One thing I did do was never stop trying. I came to treatment court ordered for my eighth time on January 1st, 2020. I remember being sick to my stomach that I had to try and do this thing again. The longer I stayed and actually put forth some effort things started to change. I started realizing that drugs were never the problem, my thinking and my reaction to drugs was the problem. Today I’m 6 months clean and I’m blown away at how much better my life has gotten. I have bad days, but I used to have bad months and years. There’s a lot of people that are probably waiting on me to relapse and they have good reason for that. I’ve finally reached the point where I I’m grateful today that I don’t have to pick up or put one in me when life gets hard. If I can do it so can you. #TheAddictsDiary

15. “Apenas alguns meses atrás, eu estava morando nas ruas. Eu tinha perdido toda a esperança e morria lentamente de uma infecção no coração que havia adquirido me injetando. Eu tive que fazer uma cirurgia cardíaca de peito aberto e atravessar o período mais sombrio da minha vida. Hoje, completo 107 dias de abstinência. Nós podemos!”
