Hi I'm Leah. I am 15 years old. My addiction started during the summer of '11. It started with marijuana. I felt that I needed a sense of escape when my cousin had died. As months had passed I started experimenting with other things like pills. First I would get a couple perks, and then my boyfriend at the time had surgery and got oxy's. I asked and he gave them to me. Entering the later year of 2012 came alcohol abuse. I would drink for a few days at a time. A friend of mine got hit by a drunk driver that year. I realize that not only could I ruin my life while I'm drunk or high but someone else's too. Now I have a long term boyfriend which I love and am clean 7 months.
