    I Don't Like The Taste Of Alcohol

    I still do not understand why people love alcohol so much. I am not being judgmental, but everytime I drink alcohol, I cannot stand the bitterness of it. Even my friend said it was very light, for me just to drink a glass of something bitter brings nothing enjoyable. I even think...

    DXM Ruled my Life for a Year It's kind of

    ironic, before I starting religiously using DXM, I had read similar DXM stories to what I am about to share with you. But, being as naive as I was, I assumed the addiction could never happen to me and that it was all drival by weak people. This substance ruled my life for a year...

    Can Live Without

    Always The Odd One
