    A Few Years Ago

    I used to do it nearly every day. Then, one day I quit. Just like that. I moved away from it, never saw it again. I never had any withdrawals that I could tell. I'm so glad I stopped. I was always oily-faced and my eyes would get super red. I was paranoid and I had weird hours. I...
