    I've been using drugs

    since 12. I OD'd at 19 from H so I moved on to cocaine. I've actually been able to downgrade even though I trade one vice for another. No more cocaine now weed, alcohol, and prescription drugs, but my bills get paid. I don't beat my kids or fight the cops. I need those to...

    Oxycodone and OxyContin are my drugs of choice.

    ..my dad nearly died from it and I told myself is never be like that. I struggle with addiction all the time and so far I've been clean for about 3 months, but the struggle is always there and I will always be an addict.

    I wish i didn't remember.

    ... I remember sitting in that laundry room, restless as i waited eagerly for the pipe to circle back to me, smoke burning my teeth as i inhaled, thoughts swirling and barreling into each other. I remember stealing my friends car, watching the trust vacate her eyes as she...

    Last night I got together with my best friend

    and we bought some dope and it was my first time doing it. It was strong and we were told it had fentanyl in it. We were a little worried at first but my friend was already experienced at doing it and she shot up before helping me do a smaller line. I smoked weed before I...

    I Say I Care, But I Don't

    I say I care, and want to stop, but I never do, I just keep using. Like why not, that's what goes through my head. nothing, no one matters to me enough to stop.

    This second time was only a week ago. I am 30 days sober today. Before I relapsed I was clean for 8 months. I have been on dope since I was 18, I'm now 21. I've made some horrible choices and been treated like garbage because of my addiction. That kind of life isn't one you want...

    I'm Finally Admitting It: I'm A Pothead

    Before I begin, I ask that you please don't tell me that you can't get addicted to weed. True, your body doesn't experience any withdrawal symptoms for real, but you can still want it like crazy. If I have a 20 in my pocket, I give in to that urge. And to me, that's being...

    Well.. I think I am turning into one.

    a few months back, I tried Molly for the first time and had the worst experience of my life. I'm a lightweight, but I always forget that and get scared/worried that I won't take enough (of anything) to feel good. What made this experience bad was that I took about 6 shots of...

    A drug addict I am. And guess what?

    I really want to stop but depression makes me come back. Like a loyal dog to its abusive owner. It makes me lose all the money I have and I have to make money again in order to get back the thing that harms me the most.
