5.) listen to the saddest songs.

6.) iv heroin.

Now your on the street. Yeah, you got scars but you’re not special, alone or good. You’ve been telling yourself this shit since you hit puberty. Now you’re grown. It’s not cool anymore.

7.) make promises – keep a few, break less.

6.) get help to get sober.

5.) aa meetings help but not enough. try something else, try methadone.

3.) get a job, volunteer, go to church, rediscover your dreams.

2.) reclaim intimacy with your lover.

1.) learn to be yourself.
