    One More Time

    Hi, I was 14 had lots of friends did great in school my parents adored me. I would just say I had an awesome life. Yeah, I drank a little bit, but it was all in having fun. Until one night; I was a little tipsy and my cousin introduced me to this guy. He was a few years older than us, and I thought he was so cool.

    I think it was the second he pulled out the gack and asked if I wanted a line, and I said "yes" - that's when I lost my mind. The moment you tell yourself "It's only one time, I won't get addicted", that's when the lies start to flow. We all know, we said it; and look at us now. Probably still lying to ourselves, saying well, "One more time won't hurt, just one more time".

    But why do we find ourselves one month later thinking of every possible way to get money so we can get high just one more time. Then a couple months later, steeling a smuggling shit to see if we can make a trade to gacked out, just this one last time. A while after that, you find yourself hanging out with people you'd never thought you'd hang out with, or like just to get high just a couple more times. Sleeping with older guys with the promise to get high forgetting all your morals and the way you were brought up. Not having a care in the world because you are too worried about when and where you are going to get your next tweak from.

    I can go on forever about all the horrible things we have to live with now for the rest of our lives. Things that we did, or things that happened and an all the hearts you've broken. All the people who cared about you the most, who you have lied to and let down. Just one more time, yeah right! The whole thing is based on the biggest lie you told yourself in the beginning. "It's only one time, I can't get addicted. I'm not addicted or am I? Oh by the way, I am now seventeen and have been using steady since that first day. Don't worry about me, because I am just going to get high one more time tonight, and then I am going to quit.
