The transformation trend is steadily gaining momentum as 2017 begins to hit its stride. With the attention these weight loss journies are experiencing, I figure it would be a perfect time to shed light on another transformation people struggle with on a daily basis.
A few days ago, Reddit user Minnesotapolis posted a side by side photo detailing on one side his struggle with regular methamphetamine usage and on the other his sobriety. A life-changing transformation like this doesn’t come easy, and his motivation to make a change came from an unlikely source.
“Just a year ago Minnesotapolis posted about his struggle, and how it had been getting the better of him.
I’m a Crystal Meth addict in active addiction. I made a post about my addiction a few days ago and I just wanted to kind of update whoever saw it.
I went home to my moms house this weekend to go to an AA convention to try to get clean. I ended up getting high as soon as I got back to my apartment today and I’m devastated. I’m completely disheveled and I’m an absolute mess. I never believed them when I was growing up. I always thought they were wrong and I wanted to find out for myself…. biggest mistake I’ve ever made.
So here I sit, I’m high again and I’m unsure of what to do to stop. I’ve tried a million different ways and I have put 100% effort into 12 step work. I can’t fucking stop and this shit is going to kill me eventually.”
