Addiction Will End Your Life, Recovery Will Change Your Story!!

My name is mackenzie i am 16 years old from circleville ohio, when I was 14 years old I started smokinging weed, but after about a year I wasn't getting the same high I wanted to get. I was introduced to pain killers and I just fell completely in love!! I didn't have to feel my feeling anymore I could just do a pain pill and it will all just go away. But after awhile I started stealing, lying, & minupulaiting to the people I cared most about. I was put on probation & I went to jail for stealing at age 15, I got out and did the same things I was doing before I went it. So therefor I was still doing drugs, I failed my first drug test for my probation officer so he put me in the pars program in which I didn't care about I was just going to play the system but little did I know that system was smarter than me. I was put back in jail for stealing again and failing another drug test, but that still didn't stop me! I started to get tired of the pill buzz so I loved on to herion and crack cocain, I was stealing money from my work, my family & anyone that i could steal it from to get my high, at age 16 I was still failing my drug test and got charged with a feloney 5 I was looking at juvinial prison time. My counseler recomended that they send me to rehab instead, I hated everyone at that point because I did not want to quit, But once I got there and got clean I was so happy at where I was!! I spent 104 days in Bassett house in Athens ohio, it was the best 104 days in my whole life I am now 226 days clean and loving my life & everyone in it!!!
