Crystal Meth

Hey, my name is Victoria I'm a teenage drug addict. Am I proud? No, it destroyed me! My life felt over, but it wasn't, it's never to late to call for help. I'm 16 years old, I never looked at my self as a teen addicted I thought I was going to go far. But when I inhaled the smoke of that crystal meth, I fell in love, I thought.

The first time was with my mom's good friend's daughter. Ya, so good of a friend right, well I moved out of my mom's house and it was easier to get smoking. It was a one time deal for me, I started snorting it. It was ok, but I wanted to try something new. I meet my best friend, its dear name is needle. I fell in love with the feeling and we were together for almost two years.

It was okay for awhile, it destroyed my relationship with everyone, my mom mostly. We no longer are close anymore. I started stealing pills and money from my loved ones. selling stuff that meant a lot to me, but at the time I didn't care. I felt like I was alone, but I wasn't when I was high.

I felt better if I wasn't high, than I felt sick and tired. It reflected badly on my schooling, sleeping, dealing, school. I got bad burs all up and down my arms. I just wanted to give up but I didn't. Me and my bf moved out of state with my mom.

I ain't writing this to encourage you to do drugs, I'm writing this to try and help people understand it's not the right way, it really screws your life up! I promise you "drugs take you to hell disguised as heaven." Drug addiction doesn't last forever, you either get clean or die. I wish you all the best of luck!

Dear Victoria,

Thanks so much for sharing your story. You are so right that "Drugs take you to hell disguised as heaven."

I sounds like you've been able to stop using and get sober and that's wonderful. At 16, you have a long life to live and getting clean is an excellent first step.

Hopefully, someone will read what you've shared and avoid addiction, that would be fantastic.

Thanks again for sharing,


Thank you!

I wrote this to let young teens know it's not a game. I got addicted at the age of 14, it was bad... stealing, selling stuff, just to get a hit. I experienced the hole nine yards. Thank you for letting me tell my story to help people struggling.
