    I Tried Ice Once

    I'm 16 years old and have tried ice once. I am not going to blame it on peer pressure because that's not an excuse. But at first the feeling of it was great, but as the days went on of no sleep for 4 days and feeling like bugs are crawling all over me and seeing crazy stuff from sleep deprivation killed me. I saw dancing giants and crazy ass shit. I was scared. I hated this feeling it was like being on a bad trip. So I decided never to do it again. My best friend still had the urge to do it; pretty soon you couldn't call her my best friend. She lied to me all the time about stupid stuff; she was hanging out with a new "cooler" crowd. A crowd that everyone in it did ice. I knew she was doing it and I never once stepped in to tell her that it was wrong and to stop. About 2 months ago she overdosed and almost died. The thought of ever even losing her killed me. Our friendship has never been the same. She seeked help but didn't really want it. She promised on our friendship that she'd never do it again. I found out some heartbreaking news last night. She hasn't quit and she's been lying to me about it. I guess I didn't mean as much to her as she means to me. Ice ruins everything. Please think about that when you read this.
