One of my biggest problems trying to stay clean is that i cant stay away from old people and places. my brothers both use crack as i do. i cant move, my job is too important, that and my car is all i have left in my world, if have to move than i have nothing, and no way to start over…help me please, what should i do?September 4, 2013 at 10:25 am#159453AnonymousInactive
Maybe change your phone number avoid them if you can. I understand the not being able to start over but you know you have to change some things in order to stay clean. Its how bad do you want it. Dont listen to the voice in your head that talks you into using. When they call or come around you dont have to answer your phone nor your door. They will get the hint sooner or later.September 4, 2013 at 11:20 am#159452AnonymousInactive

Do you live with them in the same house?September 4, 2013 at 11:37 am#159455AnonymousInactive
You didn’t say what your living situation is, but could you move 20 minutes or so out of the city? Westfield? Agawam? Chicopee? Somewhere like that? Springfield in and of itself is pretty know for its drug problems, and coupled with your brothers living there, maybe breaking away physically, but close enough to keep your job would be a good idea. Oh, meetings help too!!September 4, 2013 at 11:46 am#159454AnonymousInactive
I’d ask myself a couple questions, and being completely honest when answering…
Can I go anywhere else, really? Any more distance between us? Am I holding onto the possibility that someday I can use again, and therefore, am I hesitating to cut my ties completely? Do I have a reservation that maybe I don’t have a problem, I just need a “break” from using? How many things can I do to cut my ties?
And then I’d take those answers and make a plan.
I also dumped all phone numbers I had, and I don’t take calls from known suppliers. Even one who is my brother. I see him at family functions, and that’s it.
Good luck, and let us know how you’re doing.
