    My Story - and How I Am 8 Years Later...

    Around the new year - I was really into the afterhours clubbing scene. Up all night dancing, DJ'ing and partying. I had already tried E, G, K and one night a buddy asked if i wanted some CRISSY... i said sure.... and that was the start of a new chapter. I happened to know...

    After spending a countless number of hours a

    week ago trying to find a vein, I finally decided to give up and put the needle down. I simply grew tired. So, so tired. Tired of poking myself endlessly with needles. Tired of the frustration. Tired of surviving rather than living. Tired of choosing to chase that high over...

    I let the Devil take me Away

    Looking back now, over the last year, I can only fathom as a nightmare. It amazes me how I am even alive today. In one years time my body suffered so much that had I not been the one living the story I am about to tell, I would’ve thought the main character never made it...

    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...

    Recurring Nightmares

    I quit using meth..... too many times to count. No matter how bad it was the time before it's only a matter of time before I slip. I started using when I was 16, used hardcore for 3 months then just quit, for a boyfriend.  It took me a little longer than it took him to...

    I am feeling much better since I quit using meth. I'm not as depressed as I used to be. I thought it would be so much harder than it was. I have used for 6yrs and I have tried to quit before but I couldn't ever do it successfully. My power at my home got shut off because we...

    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...
