    Hard Story To Write.

    Going to take a little time to write this one. The hardest part about writing about using is writing the truth, no matter how bad it could make you look. We all make mistakes in our lives and when you use drugs you do things you are not proud of. I used Meth for 2 years. All...

    After spending a countless number of hours a
