Letters from Crystal Meth Users

    Dead End Street

    Hi, I am a 14 year old meth user. It is true what they say, it will take over your life, and make you not care. Trust me, I have been there. I have been using meth for almost 2 years now. I started because all my friends were using and I thought it would make me cool. It continued like that for the first 8 to 9 months then it became something I had to have a food or drink you know a kind of vitamin something to keep me running. Now I am trying to get off of it and can't because it is still like that if I don't have it, I get so irritated and ill that I don't want to be around anyone. If I am on it, I still don't want to be around anyone, because I think everyone knows I am on it. So I am stuck with a lot of money gone toward an addiction that I hate. My body was once a healthy at 115 lbs. before I started using and now is only 92 lbs. I can't gain any weight; I used to be solid muscle. I played volleyball, skated, and ran track. Now all I do is ditch school and wonder were the next hit is coming from and how I can get my life back. So if any young people out there think it is the cool thing to do. You are wrong Very wrong. Stay away from it, if you don't want to listen to your parents or teachers, listen to someone your own age. IT IS A DEAD END STREET.
