    It wasn't crack or alcohol.

    ..but it's still just as bad. It picked me up when i was down but couldn't keep me up long enough. I eventually stopped. The first few weeks were the hardest. I learned I didn't need it and that it's bad for me yet I didn't get rid of them all. I don't want to do it anymore...
