    Should be "I take drugs

    for a reason". Anyway... So what's my reason? PTSD.. flashbacks.. sometimes I get all wound up inside and there's nothing else here to calm me down. Xanax helps, makes me feel good. I like other benzos too like Kpins, Valium and some other. They're great to just chill and feel...
