I used to go out a lot, when I a young drugging party person. I did drugs with everyone. Then I started doing drugs alone, at home, and I never went out anymore. I became a recluse and I separated from reality, both in my head, and – ha! – in reality!
Now, part of my amazing job is to party with the amazing creatives at Mxit. This is not luck – this is all about facing your personal rock bottom, and – being powerless – reaching out for help, and being honest for the first time, about my addiction. That was 9 months ago, and yes, because I am human and became arrogant and complacent, I fell off the wagon. I learned another lesson, of humility.
I have been clean for 6 months, one week and one day. I did not do this alone – both the journey into hell, and the return trip.
