    My first time taking an adderall was

    when I was 13 years old. I loved the feeling more than I could explain. Luckily for me, my parents AND my sisters were prescribed Adderall, so I could steal it very easily. For about seven months, I took either one or two, everyday (60 mg). I loved it. My grades went up, I was...

    Drug Addiction

    My life isn't the best of the best and one thing I'm proud about is I have never had a drug addiction.  I'm not saying; I haven't tried but I have never been addicted to drugs and I don't think, I will ever be.  (Drugs or pills).  Drugs are not meant for me.

    I'm not so sure why this is hard to write, but it really is. Maybe it might be because this is the first time I'm ever admitting that I'm basically out of control. I have had my problems mainly with drinking and pain killers. I've become someone I truly hate. I feel the need to...
