    Inhale, Exhale.

    Well I am addicted to getting high. I am addicted because I am afraid to live in the real world. Somehow it always seems to **** me in the face everytime I go out there. I lost my job, got my first ticket I can't even pay and I can't **** a clean drug test to save my life. I...

    It Might Be A Serious Problem...

    It seems like it's all I can think of now-a-days. I'll be sitting in class and I'm like, "hmmm...I bet if I just get up and walk out no one will stop me. I won't even answer if they ask where I'm going. I could get on the bus too, it's totally gonna be outside in like 10 minutes...
