Marijuana, alcoholism and having your best friends beat you up.

Marijuana, alcoholism and having your best friends beat you up.

My story is long, but I will just say the most important parts. The people i used to love and share great times with, ?turned out to be horrible friends going into high school. I found myself betrayed far too many times as i came back home with black eyes and scratches because they wanted to act "hard" in my town. They became really popular at the expense of losing a friend whom i thought was a really good friend. I became a large drinker and smoked?alot of?maurijuanna. I went to parties, where people would just pick a fight with me. It became old and i moved to a different town. I found several friends there and we had some good times. It wasn't till recently in my 20's, things started to turn out how they always did. I kept getting targeted for fights with kids i have never met. It? didnt help That?I was on cocaine. I usually walked away, but my tight homies and i would take on kids like a bunch of gorrillas. I watched kids get pounded on by rocks and logs. I even watched a kid who had just had laser eye surgey to see again, get his face kicked in until he was blind once more. After seeing terrible things i took a big step back and realized who i was hanging out with and what we were doing to other kids. I began to critize my friends and i recall a night where they held a loaded gun to my head. I knew they wouldnt do it for i was a huge friend to them. One kid in particular was really getting on my nerves. He looked up to a kid name Jordan who?hit a pregnant woman while drinking and driving. He was the one who held the gun to my head. He was getting on my nerves. i let him punch me and i went blind in my right eye. i walked around the party with blood coming from my eye and showed everyone why i wanted to stop this maddness. Non the less i stopped drinking and smoking weed.?I was sick of getting jumped and sick of having my teeth get chipped.?I went to college and life has never been better.?I dont talk to anyone from my old party days except my best friend? who was also my childhood friend. Sometimes i think about smoking again, but i keep reminding myself how i hated being apart of nothing. much love all. stay sober.
