My addiction to lean

by Bob
(Miami )


My name is Bob, i go to a private school and i have some friends that have told me about this drink called lean. They told me how to make it and so i went home and tried to make it and i was successful. So, i started to have these feelings so i kept drinking and drinking it was amazing.

I just loved it and for the past 3 years i have been drinking it and after a while it started to taste terrible. I don't know about the stuff from the wrong person i started to stop and it was really hard, but i did it! I would recommend everybody don't do lean!!

Lean is an opiate and will cause opiate addiction
by: Debbie Wicker

Lean is a homemade drink that is VERY bad for you.

Here is the definition:

Lean – also known as purple drank, syrup – is a mix of codeine-based prescription cough syrup, soda and, often, Jolly Ranchers candy. What does it do? The codeine, which is an opiate, produces a feeling of euphoria. The cough syrup also contains a drug called promethazine, which acts as a sedative.


I agree, NEVER drink lean it is really bad or you.
