    Kinda Messed Up

    I had no choice about taking them. I was really little and for some reason my mom thought it would be a good idea to leave me with my insane grandmother. She had her babysit me all the time. I was younger than six when this happened and I have few memories of that time and the...

    It blocked out the pain.

    That's all I can say. No other excuses, just that I was weak, and this was my way out.

    I'm Trying To Stop.

    I started doing recreational drugs 5 years ago. I was just being a cliche rebellious teenager, trying to have fun and say **** your advice to my parents. Then I was doing it because that was all everyone wanted to do. Then it became all I wanted to do. One day I realized that my...

    there was a point in my life

    where I had hit an all time low. I worked 2 jobs and was severely depressed because of things going on in my life. I looked to sex drugs and partying to fill that gap and distract me from my pain. I was using Vicodin, Aderal, cocaine, Molly, and a few others. I just woke up...

    I haven't used any drugs (including medical

    ones I've gotten prescribed) for some time. Illigal ones I haven't touched in over half a year. Honestly, the "bad" drugs have done almost only good for me. I'm not addicted, I use them when I can get a hold of them and I have friends around to chill with and yeah... That's it...

    I Have Recovered

    I did drugs between the ages 18 and 22. It has been two years since I have touched any recreational drugs. My mom did drugs, and so did my first step-dad, so no one was telling me it was wrong. My parents actually encouraged it. I was addicted to LSD, Ecstasy, Cocaine, and Heroin...

    I used to take meth. It started out

    as an experiment, to enhance sex. I took it for a period of 10 months. I wasn't a heavy user, buying a gram that could last me 2 weeks, but it changed the course of my life forever. Through it, due to that euphoric high, I didn't practise safe sex when I was on meth, when all...
