Teen Stories of Meth Abuse and Struggles

    It Was Two Years Ago

    It was only two years ago that I got introduced to crystal meth. I was using constantly for 6 months, and then one day I found out I was pregnant. I made the choice to stop, not for me, not for MY health; but for that of the baby I was going to have.

    No one around me knew I had a problem with drugs. When I decided to keep the baby, it was hard because I had constant thoughts of doing it running through my head. I also had constant mood swings every minute that I blamed on being pregnant rather than drug withdrawal. Somehow I did it (stayed stopped).

    I don't know how, but I did. I went to church every day. I prayed that I would have a normal baby that would be smart. I went back to school, so I could graduate and give my child everything. It worked, I had my child. I had a baby boy. I'm happy. He was 9 pounds and healthy. There were no problems, nothing at all, and I don't even think about doing crystal now. I think about school and my baby. I don't regret doing it, because I learned from it. I changed for the better, but I wish that I could go back and realize what I was doing at the time.

    Story Update

    Hi, I am 16, and I am in grade 11. I'm doing great in school, and I am on the honor roll for the first time in my life and it feels great. My baby is almost 9 months old. He is happy and I am happy. I admire that you are helping people with their problems and I would love for you to add my story.
