    I Am a Tweaker

    Crystal Methamphetamine is the worst drug to touch, the worst drug to put down. Hi, here I am to tell you a little story. I am 15 years old and still using. I remember the exact day that I used. I smoked dope, on April 12, 2003. That is the day I was arrested in down town Seattle for supposedly dealing crack cocaine. Even though I was only 13 years old, they took me to the adult jail!

    Then after that, everything started to go downhill. I STARTED TO BE SEXUALLY ACTIVE, AND HAVING SEX WITH WAY OLDER GUYS AND AH EVEN THOUGH I OLNY LIKE OLDER GUYS. Just yesterday I used, and today that is my drug of choice, but I don't do it all the time. I also smoke weed and drink alcohol. I usually just smoke crank very rarely like today. I had not used for six months, and now I am coming down and I don't want to use again. You see, I am a tweeker that is not addicted. Yeah.

    Hey Laurie! My name is Katie. I'm 24 years old and I can relate to everything you wrote. I started smoking Meth when I was 19 years old. that was right after my great grandmother was diagnosed with Lung cancer. everyone had their reasons for starting the drug. Mine was control. Then I told myself and everyone else around me that i just wasn't happy with my figure and when i reached my ideal weight I would stop. During my first time period of addiction I was only doing the drug for 4 months. Then i was sober for 5 years. I didn't know much about the drug except for the fact that i loved the way it made me feel. Then September of 2010 I relapsed. that was when I moved out of my parent's house where my 2 year old son (at the time) and i were staying. I immediately learned how to cook it and also started to sell it. I know what it's like to be on the streets, couch surfing, and staying in the ghetto with no food, water or electricity. That is no way to live!! At the time I didn't care about my living conditions. I was never hungry, I rarely slept and I LOVED the money. I've seen people murdered for as little as $20. The game is definitely NOT something to be taken lightly. I've been clean for only 5 months and it's the hardest thing I've ever had to do in my life. Everything reminds me of some aspect of the drug. The "drug dreams" are so real and overwhelming they're almost hell, but I know they won't last forever. I can't imagine being so young and living in the drug world. If you want help, even in the slightest, GET IT! You're not alone and good people do exist!! Out-patient doesn't work. If i can do it... ANYONE CAN!! I suggest Narconon Rehab, but there are plenty out there. Just remember, you don't have to survive each day. Life is easier when people really care about you and not just what you can do for them!!

    How do you feel about Narconon? How long were you there for? Ya see, I am currently on probation... And, its still hard to quit... I don't even know where to start to be honest.. To top it off.. I've got a mad addiction to smoking heroin also. My partner also uses and not whole situation is just not good. I'm afraid I face jail time or an intense drug rehab if I have another dirty urinalysis. I ask about Narconon because I had a friend who went to one in California and swears by the program . Any help would be appreciated.
