“That was a complete fantasy world, I won’t mind calling that spot as Mars, Jupiter, or even Venus… whatever it might be, it was a flawless feel and a … a… yard full of HD colours. Those spells came true by an array of white powder sniffed by well-rolled currency note placed on my dining table”.

Am a 45-year-old responsible father and an effective graphics designer in a famous studio. For the sake of holding on to my job – I had to be more creative, for that, I used to take a little amount of drug whenever it was needed or required. I was effective in a complete role for a big budget movie which made my vision a little blur towards family side for a while. 
This situation influenced my daughter to use drugs. I was completely unaware of my daughter’s situation until my wife took her to a professional. Then I came to know she was addicted to drugs for at least 2 years. I feel embarrassed and guilty for my behaviour. I set the wrong role model for her. This is ‘How cocaine shattered my family’.

3. The Voices of None:

Drug addiction treatment
Am a young adult who feels nervous, anxious, depressed and panics when it comes to hearing voices that isn’t real. The voices were clear and sound and that made me weak. After hearing the result from the doctor I came to know it is a kind of mental illness called schizophrenia.
Though the professionals told that it can be easily manageable since you are at the starting point of the disorder. When I heard am suffering from a mental disorder, I felt sick and I would have liked to follow the medication and therapies. In spite, I took cocaine to escape from reality and forget my symptoms for a little while.

My life shipwrecked. As days pass, my symptoms got worse and ended with an addiction. I desperately wanted to live with my family which was not possible because of my violent acts and behaviour when I was in high. They don’t want a person like me again into the family This is ‘How cocaine shattered my family’.
