Why do I use?

By Maly B

I do it to forget

Forget all the things I regret.

I do it to escape reality

To find a new identity.

I do it to manage all that’s on my mind

To trick myself that I’m winning, and what I’m looking for, I will find.

It is often in childhood, where these feelings are defined.

So let’s make peace with them, and leave them behind.

Love yourself

Forgive yourself

And when you use, be careful, stay connected; please keep this in mind
