Teen Stories of Meth Abuse and Struggles

    Feeling Like No One

    I am 15 years old. The first time I tried meth was when I was 14. When I hear about it, it is like I have to have it. When I am spun I feel like I can take on the world. When I come down it is like I am no one. I start to hate life and I don't want to do anything.

    The last time I did it with a very good friend and she was up for 5 days just smoking we were at a friend's house and asked him what he thought about dope and he said he hates the shit and if we do it don't talk to him. We were hoping that he would say he did it because we had some and were smoking all night and wanted more. We were waiting for him to go to sleep so we could go to the bathroom and smoke it. My friend fell asleep while we were waiting for him to go to sleep. I tried to wake her up, but she wouldn't. I got a little scared that maybe she wouldn't wake up but eventually she did and she went crazy. She was so out of it she thought crystals were coming out of her pores and her tongue because she got soars on her tongue she wouldn't stop picking at her face for anything.

    I always hated meth growing up my whole family did it, and they would steal cars and rob stores and go to jail. My dad has been in and out of jail and now is in prison all of his offences have been related to meth. I hated the shit. One day my cousin pulled a sack out and I cried all night because of it; but one day I just did it and now it is like I need it. I now might be pregnant and haven't done it for about a month. I am just hoping I won't go back.
