    16 and On Meth

    My name is Roxanne and I first tried meth when I was fourteen. I started doing lines with my 20 year old boyfriend. He didn't want to do it anymore, so I promised him that I would quit with him. So he quit and I started doing it with my mom, sister, and brother. My mom was a dealer and my dad was in rehab. So my mom always had shit. My mom had three other children living in our house. I was still going out with my boyfriend. I was hiding it from him still. Lines weren't doing anything to me any more so I started smoking it and doing hot rails. About six months after doing that I started shooting up. It was a sudden rush. Our house was very nasty. There was never any food. Our well broke so there was no water. The three kids were living in misery. We didn't even care. My boyfriend knew something was going on. But I kept on lying to him. I had no meat on me. I looked like a walking ghost. My mom decided that she didn't want her kids anymore. So we all got taken away by C.P.S. I was in foster care for 9 months. I still had ways to get my shit through foster care. My dad got all of us back from C.P.S and we have been doing pretty well. My mom is still doing it. My teenager years weren't the way I wanted them to be. This drug is Satan. It puts your life through hell. Please don't do this awful drug.
