Nothing Can Control You

Nothing Can Control You

it all started when i was 16. finals were just coming up, and i needed something to get me through. i talked to a few guys and they recomended xanx. I used that until i was about 19, but thats now where it gets bad. Befor i begin i just want to say, this was no ones fault but my own. Ya people put pressure on me and all, but MY actions are MY life, and can only be controlled by me. I am the only one to blame.

As i was begining to descover the intellectuall, spontanious, exotic life of being an independent adult, i got to know this girl. lets just call her star. I was madly head over heals in love this this girl. I got that warm fuzzy feeling whenever i got pleasure of just holding her, and the jitters when i heard her sweet angel voice. Star has a nasty habit. The habit was to hydrocodon. as her habit became stronger, i became more supportive of her addiction. I didnt want to confront her like i should have, in fear of her resenting me. She asked me to join her in some pill action. I belive this particuallar pill was just oxy cotton. after using that a few times, vicoden dident seem that scary. i started using and from there was a blur.

Me and Star lived for the pills. we stole for it, and we even physically hurt each other for it. as the addiction grew stronger for me and her, she recomended crystal meth. Dont get me wrong here, i never touched that stuff. It never seemed ok. no matter how bad i wanted a better high, just didnt seem worth it. as the year went on, me and star were on and off. after scaring off every family and friend i had, it was just me and star. Her addiction had the best of her. She overdosed, and was prononced dead 3 days later. I finally decided i needed help, and am now sober for 2 years.

If you are thinking of doing drugs, or anything else of that matter, you dont need it. It is no excusse to?say "its my parents fault" or "i just need to get off some stress" it is all on you. No one is to blame for your own actions. You must make the most of your life. damn... now that i think of it how did i even make it through. during my 4-5 year using period, life was a blur. YOU will lose everything. YOU will pay the price, and YOU will regrett it. please... a sober mind is the purest most amazing thing you can have. just see the silver lining, and of their is a broblem, dont escape it, FIX IT.
