So sorry about your experience. However, this year is still not very lucky for you. Anyway, keep positive and things may get better in the next half of the year. I know hard it is to struggle with addiction. But just keep it and you will see the hope of the life. Good luck!
Answered by Michelle Kirkendall | Sep. 22, 2023 01:24

Tyson, I was an addict to Meth, Crack and other drugs for 14 years. You will only change when the drugs no longer serve their purpose. I am six years sober and have not looked back since. Some people survive their addiction and some don't. If you are a naturally strong person you can beat this but only when you decide when you need to change. I hope this helps.

I'm sorry but your fortune this year is not very good. In career aspects, there are not many good chances so it may be a little hard for you to get a government job this year.

Your luck in health is better than last year. But you'd better also do something to enhance the immunity. As for the weath horoscope, it's just so-so.
