Trying To Sober Up After Years Of Addiction

Pardon the fact that I'm new here, and this being my first post. It's that just of last week Wednesday, a few staggering events led to me wanting to reach sobriety after about three and a half years of addiction (keep In mind I'm seventeen). I've done weed, hards, beer, Oxycodine, Xanax, Bennadryl, dillies, Bella Donnas, and all anomaly of other things I can't name right now. The pills and weed served to be some of the most addicting for me. I used to consume anywhere from 20 to 60 or so pills a week at one point, and when I quit I would go through withdrawls, become very itchy and scratch my body untill there were scratch marks all over my body and hallucinated that bugs would crawl all over me, I assume they were withdrawls (it looked liked I needed an exorcism).

 

Thus, I decided I want to become completely sober for me, but most importantly my family.Eighteen is right around the corner, and I'm sure I'll only dig myself more into the hole if I don't soberup and get myact together. I've never talkedto anycouncelor,consulted any doctor, or been to anysupport group thing or anything atall. Itook the first steps I could think of, and tossed all thethings I have. My weed, lighter,and even my eighty dollar bong.I've said before that I'd sober up, endingin failure in a matter of days. I have no ideawhat I should do, or whatsteps I should take.Although my family knows(being caught for the nth time is what made me want to become completely sober in the fist place) they're not the type to openly talk about these things, let alone take me to some councelor or support group. When I got busted, I got a stern talking to, and that's about it. Not saying I have a bad family, I just think my dad is as lost as I am on what we should do, or what the right steps are.

 

So, my last resort is to go to this online support site I stumbled across on. I'd love any advice, help, or anything at all.

 

 

Sincerely,

 

A lost teen
