I would like to know if there have been any studies on addicts that have been clean for more than a decade? I am a recoverying addict now for eleven years, my sister say`s that my memory is distortied of my childhood life due to my drug usage. I did crack for 13 years, only 3 years of heavy us . . .
Thanks for your excellent question. The likelihood is that your recollection of your home life, now that you are looking at it through the lens of being sober, is more accurate than your sister's recollection.
