    Trying to Find Myself

    I was 13 when I tried my first cigarette. And that was it, the people I hung out with, who were much older, suddenly seemed to think I was much cooler. I got hooked on nicotine because I thought it made me belong. Then, the summer i was 14, I smoked weed for the first time. And I never stopped. When I was high, everything was ok, it seemed like my friends really accepted me and I loved myself and the world. I promised myself I would stick to weed, no chemicals, no injections, and no pills....

    All In The Family

    My name is Kat. I've sat down to write this so many times. Yet every time I've tried to write my story, I realize the beginning is somewhere much earlier in time than I thought. Initially, I thought it started last April. My husband of 10 years was in a chemical explosion. He concocted a really creative story about what happened (a story he sticks with even today), but when I investigated, I found a meth lab at his warehouse. He almost died. He was on life support for about a week, and eventually recovered (at least physically.) Toxicology reports found meth in his system. Given his extended hospital stay, he went through all the classic withdrawal symptoms. In fact, he was placed on 24 hour suicide watch. Mental health professionals visited him and he acknowledged using meth, but insisted that he didn't have a problem so there was no follow-up....

    I Thought I was In Control

    Getting Meth was always easy for me. I live at home so I was what I call a "spoiled tweeker." I never really lost anything financially but I lost my family. I was first introduced when I was 10 years old because my mother was a "meth head." I didn't do it again until I was 14. I did it on and off for about 6 months after that. I am an addict now for 4 years. Now I'm 18 and just now trying to get off....

    I'm Just Like You

    I guess that I am like just about everyone that has their letters posted on your site. I am a meth addict I hate the way that sounds but it's the truth and it's time for me to stop hiding in the dark. My name is Sara, I am 22 and from Iowa. I used dope the first time when I was 15 I did about a quarter in one line and stayed up for 2 days it was the scariest and most horrible experience of my life. I wish that I would have paid more attention to that fact 3 years later when I smoked my first foil. I can honestly say (thank God for this) I never graduated to using needles, and I think that the only thing that stopped me from that was my fear of enjoying it too much. I did meth every other way possible though. I smoked it, snorted it, ate it, put it in my drinks, laced my weed with it, any way I could possibly do more. At the peak of my addiction, I was using over a quarter ounce a day and I can thank only God for the fact that I am still alive. I was staying up on 12-15 day binges with 2 or 3 hours of sleep once a week if I was lucky....

    Asking For Help

    My name is Dee. I'm 32 years old. I have a 12 year old son and a 10 year old daughter. I have been with their dad for 15 years. I'm saddened to say that I am a crystal meth user. I use it every day, both me and my boyfriend use crystal meth on a daily basis. I came to a realization that it has now controlled our lives. I cannot function if I don't use it. I am so tired of it; I hate myself for doing this. I look at my kids and think to myself, how sad it is for them because they have no idea that their mom is on crystal meth. All of their lives, I've been high, if not every day almost every day. I am so sick of this, but it is so hard to quit. I love my children to death and all I'm doing is hurting myself,. I trying to pretend I live a normal life (drug free) but in reality I'm not. Every day before I go to work I have to smoke some, too get me going. While I'm at work I fool everyone, coworkers think I a drug free person. When I get home again I have to smoke a little more. This goes on, on a daily basis, I ignore my kids so much, that my son is not doing good in school. The reason for me writing this is because I admit I want to stop, but yet I am embarrassed to let family, coworkers know that I have a drug problem. Someone please let me know what to do... I am begging for help. I don't want to use no more, but I just can't stop. Dee...

    The Life of a Rockstar

    I've always been energetic since I was very young. I used to enjoy things like inline skating, wakeboarding, flying single engine planes, scuba diving, surfing, dirt bikes, tennis, and computers. I have never been able to get up in front of a large audience or approach a total stranger with ease, though. When I took my first tab of x at age 18, I felt all the scars from my past melt away. I have pain from being picked on and ridiculed for not fitting in. From my first pill, I felt confidence and well-being for the first time in my life. Of course next weekend I was out popping x. The club I used to go to became a second home, and the drugs became like food. I eventually got to the point where I was popping 10-20 pills a night, 3 times a week, or whenever I could (and loving every minute of it)....
