I'm a 20 yr. old female, although I feel I've already lived 100 yrs., experiencing more evils, destruction, pain, and sorrow than any person should know. When I was young, I was always the "GOOD ONE" outta the click. The one who always kicked it with the older crowds, but never did the things they did-the drugs, drinking, etc....
You have "forever" been a part of my life. However, "forever" if that is your masquerade, I thought I had control of you since I'm older! Then I realized that maybe you were born first. Since "denial" is your middle name; and if I would have known that "destroyed" was one of your last names, I don't believe I would have messed with you, or would I have? Since sometimes your A.K.A. is "competition" and you always knew I liked a good challenge, and in most challenges, I did come in first place! So new "competition" was welcome, because I was sure to win! I must say, you compete well. My hardest "competitor", so now I know I must throw in the towel. Not to be the looser, but the winner! You see "Addiction", although you've stayed in the lead of the race, you were not paying attention when I declared war! And this is the fight I will win! So come on with your "bad self" - the bets are my not getting high. L.S....
The first time I ever "used" - was when I was 16. I didn't "use" again until I was almost 20. I am now 23. I still can't figure out why I "used" after almost 4 years. I was a "Binger". I had 2 to 4 weeks in between "puddles". When I was "using" my daily intake was between 1 to 4 grams a day and sometimes even up to 6 or 7 grams. I usually smoked it, but I also snorted it. My binges lasted from 1 to 14 days. I eventually ended up in jail because of my habit. That is what told me I had a problem with Meth. I "used" once shortly after I got out; but now have a girlfriend who is trying to help me with this. I am helping with a youth support group that is being put together. I want to clean-up my life but it is hard....
I just found out my good friend and longtime 'partner in crime' died on Saturday. She died of a drug overdose. I remember driving her to the rehab center not long ago. She was so wacked out she didn't know where she was. She only stayed a week before checking herself out. She was a kind and generous soul, always giving her friends things she had found and thought they'd like; and always there with a hug and an ear to listen. She was beautiful, inside and out. She was dogged all her life by drugs, but they never took away her basic decency and respect that she showed all people. I loved her. I will miss her so much. I know she is at peace now, free of the pain that filled so much of her life. Now I look at my other friends and wonder who will be next? Me? We all know that what we're doing is deadly. "If the addict doesn't stop the using, the using will eventually stop the addict." I am too much in shock to think deeply about that right now. Right now I only feel the empty place in my heart. I miss her. I will always love her. She is gone. ...
I guess I will start with the easy topics first. Albany is located on the western side of Australia. I live 400 kilometers south of a capital city by the name of Perth in West Australia. The drug scene here is made up of four categories. The first is the heroin addicts, which we have many of, just two weeks ago a shipment of about 10000kgs of heroin was busted of the coast of Eastern Australia!! We have a very large population of Asian-Australians in my side of the country who import a lot of our drugs. The second categories are the 'ravers'. You know all the hallucinogens, most popular being ecstasy. However, in my part of the country we have a small area which is home to a very potent magic mushroom and it grows wild in huge amounts here. The third category is the 'pot heads'; I think we have statistics like every one in three people of the general public smoke cannabis on a daily basis. The last but definitely not least category is the speed freaks or tweakers as you guys call them. The problem has become huge in my area. A lot of the clients I deal with on a daily basis are suffering the effects of psychosis, a big problem that we as service providers have to deal with. I am sure you understand....
A friend of mine had been using met and he offered me some one night when I was hanging out with him. Here in Georgia we call it "shards", amongst other names. Anyway, I tried a small bump which led to line after line after line. It was only a matter of weeks before I became so terribly addicted to it....
