    Faith No More

    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.

    I started smoking it and doing "hot rails". I lost my job, got kicked out of my house and I was living out of my car in down town Atlanta. I found ways to get it free and every day. After a period of being up for about ten months (taking two hour cat naps maybe once a week) I was on my way to a friend's house to get some clothes I was keeping there. Because I had been up for so long I was incredibly tired while driving up there, meth wasn't even able to keep me awake enough at this point. I started fading in and out of sleep while driving on the express way in the late afternoon and finally I just passed out at the wheel and the next thing I knew, my car was spinning out of control. I flipped my car four times and the engine caught fire. Some stranger busted out my sun roof and pulled me out of my car. The fire department put it out and i was taken to the hospital in an ambulance. As if that weren't enough the cops found the small amount of meth I had in the car, but in Georgia any amount is a felony. I went to jail a few days after I got out of the hospital and I was charged with failure to maintain lane and possession of meth amphetamine. I went through rehab at a local psychiatric hospital and lived there for about 17 days. I'm now going to NA meetings and I am feeling so good today. Though doing meth numbed a lot of bad shit going on with me it numbed the good too, and my brain is finally detoxing and I'm enjoying life more than I ever thought I could without using shards all the damn time. Next Saturday i celebrate 30 days clean and get my orange chip.

    But fuck meth, that shit about killed my ass!
