Are YOU an addict? This can be hard question to answer and even harder to admit to. In fact, I didn’t consider myself an addict until after I quit! I don’t think anyone WANTS to be an addict so it’s just easier to call ourselves ‘users’. However, admitting that we are addicted (and are indeed addicts) is one of the first steps. According to Merriam-Webster, the first definition of ‘addict’ is ‘to devote or surrender (oneself) to something habitually or obsessively’. Meth is a very addictive drug so it’s really easy to become an addict without even realizing that it makes you an addict.
So, I was doing some research on the web and found a self-test that admits it won’t tell you that you’re an addict, but sheds some light whether you are an addict (by definition). Take the test! See what you think!

So, are you? I AM! And it’s going to be okay to admit it because now you have a base to grow from. Part of this journey to normal life is going to consist of admitting that you are an addict. That can be hard to stomach but it’s necessary! I’m telling you right now I have NEVER had ANYONE be nothing but supportive every time I say that I’m a meth addict and that I’ve been clean from meth _____ long. EVEN ONE DAY COUNTS.
Does it bother you to be labeled an ‘addict’? Does it make you mad that the test would suggest it? Friend, it will be your label forever but it doesn’t mean that it defines who you are. Though I will always be an addict because I know that I cannot control meth in my life, I am now a wife, stay-home mom, and a blogger who wants to help addicts have hope for normal life. I just moved to a new town and hardly anyone knows about my past. It just my scar.
