    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 Got My Life Back

    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...

    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...

    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...
