Thumbs up Once upon a use . . . - September 6th 2011, 07:55 AM

i thought it would be nice to share my experience with many of you about my addiction to drugs , and drowning myself into an imaginary life . when i was in middle skool in 6th grade i was introduced to the drug world were promises like "youll touch the sky " "itll make you happy" "everything will dissapear" "youll forget" "its the best your life is gonna change" were made . my parents had recently divorced and i was trying to find a way out of reality . so i found myself slowly falling into this dark world . it all started with marijuana , while i myself dont think its really a dangerous drug it can lead to so many other things . after i started smoking i tried acid , and then realiced i was shooting cocaine , and snorting angel dust .. my life was slipping out of my fingers and it was no longer mine . drugs owned me . i was fucked up . and i looked horrible . i broke out making me ugly ! so when i actually took the time to see myself in a mirror for the first time i realized i had lost myself and i couldnt find a way out . my parents never knew i was so good at hiding it and they were always working . so let me tell you what i did i got myself out . it wasnt easy . my body didnt take it easy but i made it . its been 2years since ive been clean and i feel great . YOU CAN DO IT TOO <3

I too have been addicted to and have recovered from drugs and I know how difficult it is.

You have further proved mankind's inner strength, thank you for sharing your story.

this is great, i had a friend that ran away that used to do all sorts of drugs i havent spoken to her since she packed up and left in some mans truck. i just hope she is strong enough to over come this. just like you i admire you and your strength to over power it.

Good for you. Overcomming drugs is no easy feat, and to be honest a lot of people are too weak to do it. You've done great.
