Some how I beleive these two situations go hand in hand. You feel you need the drug in order to deal with every day life but once you learn that the "meth" really doesn't help you anymore and you pray out to God for help because if he doesn't do something quick your going to take your own life or do something stupid again.
In my life, which has been a serious roller coaster ride since 21yrs old, you first have to acknoledge your real pain in life, identify it through a series of questions with truthfull answers. Why? Who? When? and then learn to let go of the anger, resentment and take the consequences for your actions. It's the only way you learn what your mistakes were. Were all adults when we turn 18yrs old and from there on, it's ourselves we have to look at for our actions. Get over the screwed up childhood (may need counceling) or the crap you accepted in your adult life and learn to forgive yourself and others whether they ask for it or not and do not regret or feel ashamed because that only gives someone else power over your life and make yourself be a better person by setting realistic goals and have hope again in yourself because we were all born with that. Honestly God was the only spirit that helped me overcome the worst time in my life and I never thought i would need him for that.
