I am 19 years old. I started smoking weed when I was 12 years old. I started taking Adderall at 14 years old and started heavily drinking at 16 years old. When I was younger I always knew that I would try every drug at least once. Little did I know that I would be a drug addict. I tried Xanax for the first time when I was 16 because I would have panic attacks. I fell in love. I started turning tricks at 17 years old because of how enticing the money was. In my journeys I met a guy that introduced me to crack. I also had a best friend that dabbled in meth. I thought that there was nothing wrong with it. My only last connection to reality and my morals was my wonderful ex-boyfriend. Whenever I went to visit him he would put me in my place and tell me how wrong I was living my life. I came clean to my family about the drugs I was using and how I was getting money. My mom set me up in a rehab in Florida, but when my 28 days were done I yearned to come home. I didn’t have a car, any money, any friends and no place to go. I am unbelievably grateful to be here at the atTAcK addiction house. When my mom told me about this place I thought it was too good to be true. atTAcK addiction has given me the opportunity to start over and get a second chance. I thank god every day.
