Seventeen years ago, I suffered from an addiction. One that changed my life forever.
I met the end of it after a year long battle. When it was over, I felt empty and I didn’t know what to do with myself. A few years ago, I was told that this drug would probably be reintroduced to me in a new form, that I should look out for it. The years have rolled by and I have done good to keep myself clean and keep myself from becoming addicted to anything anymore (except for chocolate, no, NEVER)!
Today……… Today I am restless. Today, my palms sweat as they did all those years ago, because today….
the rumor materialized.
Goosebumps riddled my body after seeing it with my own eyes, but even then, I stood firm. I remembered the struggle, I remembered the emptiness I was left with.
What if I pick it up again? Will it really have the same grip on me, will it still have that magic? What’s it going to be like after all these years?
A part of me wants to leave it in the past and remember it as it was in all its perfect glory. A part of me wants to know that feeling again and know what it tastes like in this new era.
With each passing minute, my panic sets deeper and deeper. I start to wonder if I am strong enough. I can’t sit still, I am growing weak.
….. I’m going to do it again…..
