The high we are all reaching for is death.

(Springfield MO)

My name is Emma i am 17 years old right now and things are going better. i started using drugs at the age of 15 for a boy i thought i liked and wanted him to think i was cool.

i started out smoking then fell in love with drinking and then next came the pills. weed never got me into much trouble but alchol did always in crazy hospitals and been to 4 rehabs. I always chased the older men that i thought could care for me but really they only wanted on thing and if i couldn't give it they didn't want anything to do with me.

i always chose my drug friends over good friends. drug friends over family. thank God i never got into any legal trouble. i know my drug addiction isn't as bad as others but for what i went through i wouldn't want anyone else to. Today i graduated high school and have an amazing boyfriend a job. rehab and the 12 steps only help IF YOU APPLY IT and LET IT HELP YOU. its never to late to start over.
