We’re not going to tell you to stop using drugs because they are illegal. You’re free to have your own moral values and we won’t narc you out to the police. But injection drugs may have gotten you into this mess in the first place, and even things like chemsex drugs can make HIV transmission more likely. And they are bad for your health, especially now that you are positive, because they are hard on the immune system. Cigarettes, while not as problematic as hard drugs are still deadly. According to the American Cancer Society “Cigarettes kill more Americans than alcohol, car accidents, suicide, AIDS, homicide, and illegal drugs combined.” Get help breaking your addictions and leave those bad habits behind like a skin you've shed to become the new, healthier, you.
