I was sexually abused by a drug addict. I was so young then, like 7 or 8 years old.
She would call me into her room, it’s a face me I slap you house and after taking her thing, she’ll put small amounts of the substance into my mouth and she’ll start riding me. This continued till I entered secondary school and I was enjoying it.
I even told my friends to follow me to her room one day and she did same to all of us. And that’s how I was exposed to sex and drugs so early in my life. We moved out of the house to our own house when I was in JSS 3 and I started longing for it. I started chasing after girls in SS 1 and I was known as a big boy. Little did I know that my life is in ruins already.
I entered the University and I couldn’t go a week without having sex and occasional drugs. It was when it started affecting my academics that I sat down and thought about the whole thing.
Thank God I confided in my Mom when I almost failed my MBBS exam and she didn’t even judge me. She said she’d always known something was wrong with me. She introduced me to a counselor and that’s how I was liberated from the addiction of sex and drugs. I’m now a medical doctor, I’m married and blessed with kids. Thank you for hearing me out and not judging me too.
