I'd like to additionally ask how long it took you to become sober, and from what and what circumstances.

The overdose I had woke me up to the reality of my life. I realised that I'd probably end up dead. That shocked my into becoming sober from heroin. After the overdose it took me about 6-8 months to pack my shit up and move states. I find it hard to make friends because eventually they ask about my past and I'm sick of lying to them, so I avoid contact with people.

I hope you can feel comfortable with people at some point. I think that story already makes you sound strong and interesting. And if people can't handle a story of who you used to be, you don't need to make them part of your present.
