Teen Stories of Meth Abuse and Struggles

    It Will Take Some Time

    It all started when I had just turned 14. I meet some guys and they were smoking ICE and I joined in. Then I asked if you could snort it and I did as soon as it went up my nose I fell in love with it. It made me feel like I wasn't in my shell anymore. I wasn't shy on it or anything then it became a regular thing for me. I would do crystal like 5 times a week at first. Then I really got into it to the point where I would stay up for 4 days in a row high.

    As soon as I started to come down, I would snort more. No sleep. No food. I got so skinny I dropped 26 lbs. in 3 months. I looked horrible because before that I was already a size 0. My face looked so different my cheeks were sucked in my lips were purple my eyes were wide open and sunken in. I would have meth sores all over, on my face, back, chest, arms, legs, stomach everything.

    I once got so fucked up on crystal; I took 2 knives and sat in front of a mirror and tried to squeeze a black head out it turned out to be a birth mark. I cut my skin out. My fingernails were full of blood from me biting them down to the end. By this time I started sleeping with guys for dope and I became a tweaker whore at 14 yrs. old. Every day I would take the city bus to school. Every time I got on the bus people stared at me like I had three heads. I looked so horrible people had pity on me and would get up and say here you can have my seat.

    At school one time, I was sitting at lunch and a teacher came up to me with real concern and said "Oh my God, are you okay do you need to see the nurse?" and I said "No, I'm fine." and she quickly walked away embarrassed. Then another time, a teacher kept asking me "Why I had lost so much weight." He kept commenting on it. When I would get home, I would cry and then get high.

    Then I realized I needed to quit. Long story short a man on the city bus said "I hope you make it through baby it'll take some time." I cried and ran off the bus. I wrote it down in my note book those words helped me so much. I wish I could go back and thank that man because every time I felt like getting high or thought I'm already a tweeker what the hell. I would think about "It'll take some time" because it does it takes a lot of time, but it's worth it. Trust me. I finally quit. I told all my friends to go fuck themselves. I don't got none now, but I don't a give a shit.

    I have been clean for 8 months now. I am studying for my GED and hope to get back into school. I never even got to finish the eighth grade because of crystal, but I hope to go back. No matter how far down the line you think you are, there's hope and just remember things take a lot of time, but it's worth the effort. I hope this story helps you or inspires you to at least try to quit, because life is good if you make it that way. God bless you! I wish you the best!
