Adam was only 19 years old when he passed on from a drug overdose. We know he took a few Valium and a few Methadone but we are not exactly sure how much he took.
I know Adam loved me very much and didn't want his life to end so early. He told me two weeks before he died, "I know what I'm doing -- people who overdose are stupid." Adam wasn't stupid, but he did not know what he was doing. Unfortunately it is too late for Adam.
If you, or someone you love, is using drugs and you think you "know what you're doing" think again before it's too late. I miss Adam very much and I pray that people take something form his death. I hope someone realizes that when you're using drugs, no matter how intelligent you may be, you don't know what you are doing.
