It's over

I been smoking weed since I was 13. I first started smoking with my mom. I didn't realize how much it put a damper on my life untill 3 kids and 5 jail arrests later. Now Ive been drug free for 6 months its not long but Im proud of the little time Ive acomplished. I have gained weigth because I eat more. I used to be 110 pounds but now Im 157. My lanlord when she saw me? said, ?I looked alive. I took that as positive criticism. I didnt think quiting was possible. Im here to tell you it is. The most important thing is you gotta take care of your body before its to late. The more you continue to smoke the harder it feels to stop. My arrest almost landed me in jail for 9 months. Being away from my kids was my biggest fear because they needed me. My relationship with God saved my life. I told him if you keep me out of jail I'll quit smoking. And he did so I quit. The commercials you see on tv are real and it can be you. Do yourself a favor and get help and quit now. Its not easy but you can do it. I did and so can you!

My teen is all of the above. He also likes animals, cooking and travelling with the others in his family.

Definitely the mood swinger - most of the time. Wait - maybe she's more like the silent one. Or maybe my little rebel. Maybe it's all of the above. Actually I haven't seen her yet today - so I let you know later what it is today. :)

If there's one thing teens love, it's being pigeonholed.
