    Just to Lose Weight

    Hi, I'm 16 yrs. old, and I started to tweak when I was 13 yrs. old but I am not addicted to it. I also do it just to lose weight! I am really insecure with my body, so I got to look good, so I tweak my way to it. I don't have health problems, even though I've been do it for three years. It's not hurting me, or my family and I also don't do it every day. I only do it when I have to, and when I'm really, really angry to the point I just wanna beat the shit out of somebody. I don't really crave it or anything. I just do it FOR FUN! Still Sassy in Mmontebello...

    When I Am 40

    Hi my name is Melissa and I have been smoking dope since I was 14. I started smoking dope when my best friend Megan said wanna have some fun and of course I had to say yes. Ever since then I have been doing dope. Every day I am right back smoking dope telling myself that one bowl won't hurt, but I go through at least a half (gram) a day by myself. The worst part about it is that my boyfriend cooks it and I can get anything I want. After about a year of smoking it, I realized what was happening to me when I sobered up. I was constantly yelling at my Mom when I was home. I was stealing anything worth money. I dropped 49 pounds in three months and I slept about a total of a month within 9 months....

    My Addiction Pattern

    My addiction pattern started with drinking then led to drugs of all sorts' uppers and downers. When I was using I preferred uppers though. Then I found Crystal Meth. Which at first I thought I had found my best friend. I used Crystal Meth for 5-6 months straight and I remember looking at this website when I was all fricked up all the time. I read the stories and looked at the pictures and I cried, because I never thought I would be normal again. But I finally hit my low and went to Detox and Day Treatment at Addiction Services and I am regularly attending Narcotics Anonymous meetings. I have been involving myself in NA and have a sponsor! I changed my playmates, play places and playthings. I have found a lot of new clean and sober friends in the NA fellowship. My life has done a total and unbelievable turn around. I have been clean for 40 days today and haven't had any desire to go back to the chaos and insanity of my life on drugs. Even when you think that you can never be the way you were before the drugs know that there is help and hope out there. I have never been so grateful and truly happy. It isn't easy but it is very worth it. Take it one day at a time. Gina, Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada...

    I've Read Every Letter On Here

    Y'all got some touching words. You learn a lot from other people. Now it's time for y'all to try and learn by mine. I had a confusing childhood. My mother committed suicide when I was 5. I had 2 sisters and 1 brother. My father had another girlfriend while they were married, so after she died, he wanted to start his new life with her. But we were a burden so he put us kids in temporary foster care and I never saw my brother again. But I was lucky enough to have my sisters. I can remember walking in on one of my sisters shooting up heroin. My sister was a very depressed person, she wanted to die. She had nothing to live for, except me and my other sister. I was her sunlight though. She looked after me like I was her daughter. When I was 7 we moved back in with my father, his new wife, and her children. My step mom was then pregnant. When I was 9 my sister went on a rampage and ran away. We found her 3 days later; she had been killed and was lying in a parking lot. An autopsy showed that she had heroin, meth, and LSD (acid) in her system. From then on, we were in and out of our home, and foster care....
