    I went through my senior year strung out on

    I started using Heroin the month

    after I turned 15 years old. I was dating someone 4 years older than me. We got very heavy into using when we started selling. I ended up using heavily for 2 and a half years all day every day. By the end of my run my life was a disaster, at only 17 years old. I now have been...

    It's like our minds are turning against our

    bodies. It wants to feel this way. It lies & says its good for my body. Cuz it feels good. But it's not good for me. When I want it, my mind lies. When I get what I want, my body loves it & my mind freaks out. Once it's gone, my mind wants more & my body tries to heal itself
