Hi, I'm Jared
I have been a p&m addict since I was 13. I am now 20 and have been struggling with it.
While reading a lot of content on this forum I remember a story from a church conference about Heart Transplants:
"In each heart transplant recipient, the patient’s own body recognizes the new, lifesaving heart as “foreign” and begins to attack it. Left unchecked, the body’s natural response will reject the new heart, and the recipient will die. Medicines can suppress this natural response, but the medications must be taken daily and with exactness. Furthermore, the condition of the new heart must be monitored. Occasional heart biopsies are performed wherein small pieces of heart tissue are removed and then examined under a microscope. When signs of rejection are found, medications are adjusted. If the rejection process is detected early enough, death can be averted.
Surprisingly, some patients become casual with their transplanted hearts. They skip their medicines here and there and obtain the needed follow-up less frequently than they should. They think that because they feel good, all is well. Too often this shortsighted attitude puts the patients at risk and shortens their lives."

This^ is what usually happens to me, I became casual with my new "heart" (changed from being an addict) that I skip the "medicines"-(controlling your breathing, writing regularly to your journal, etc) because I feel good and all is well; making me open to temptation and eventually going back to p&m.
P.S. forgive my english, I'm filipino XD
