Dear fellow Lettrists,

I am so grateful to have randomly come across this app! Currently I’m In the midst of my addiction, isolated without the human connection that I crave so badly. Downloading this was absolutely serendipitous as it has given me a platform to be honest and vulnerable while making connections as well as reading beautiful words.

I feel inspired.
I will continue to try to keep the faith as so many of you do.

Why do I write?

I use writing as
an outlet for all
my crazy emotions.

But I mainly write for
personal growth reasons.
It’s a coping tool.

I also write because
I absolutely love reading
things from a while back.

It’s fun!

                 Day 4
     Crystal meth binge

         I have never been so
         terrified in my life.

I’m more afraid of my
own shadow than of the
infamous shadow people
at this point.

Silence is dangerous.
    Every little sound
    makes me gasp
    & causes a dramatic                 
    physical response.

My poor body,
My poor mind.

Not only can I feel the
toll the meth has taken on me, but I can see it:

      My legs are purple.
      My fingers are orange.

              That baffles me.

                    This
                         Is
                            Not
                                Okay

I am thoroughly disgusted with myself on all levels.
  ...

CREATIVE WRITING

       Sobriety
            is like a carrot
               dangling
           in front of my face,
     
      but I can’t quite reach it

Every
      Morning
               I awake,

I am sentenced
      to another day
           in my very own hell

I met the devil
recently in the form of
                              crystal meth.

7 months of sobriety tossed
in the garbage in exchange
for glass.

            Oh,
                How wicked this drug is.

Long-term sobriety
seems like a distant dream.

The
most
unreachable
of
goals.
