    now 32, but I started my love-affair with opiates when I was in early high-school. For some reason, I thought that the kids dealing drugs and doing drugs were really the coolest kids. It was a small school, and I regret some of the things I 'learned'. Anyway I started using...

    So, I have been going to this clinic
