I grew up in a good home and one day when I was 14, my uncle let me try it. That led to 8 years of heavy use and several arrests. One day I woke up in jail and had over 20 charges. That’s when I realized this was serious. After I got out of treatment I started hanging out with the same old friends and relapsed. I hated myself and knew I had to change and finally I did it. My advice is to never try it.


The first time I used meth, it made me feel amazing. By the second time, I was hooked. I kept using to try to get the same high I had the first time but I never found it again – I only became addicted and started to cross lines I never thought I’d cross. Meth destroyed every aspect of my life very quickly. I ended up using for over 20 years and finally got clean. Pretty much everyone I know regrets ever trying that drug.
