Who is an Ex-Drug User
Q: How old were you when you
first took drugs?
A: When I first took drugs I was real young. I was
12. I first started heavily using drugs when I was 13
Q: How do you feel after taking
A: Well, when you first start drugs, like
cannabis, you feel happy, but it's a fake type of
happy, cause really your brain is just so fried you
don't know what else to feel but happy. Then after
awhile when your tolerance goes up, you just start to
feel depressed and paranoid.
With harder drugs like heroin you
feel really good, in the beginning. It's like
everything in your life is perfect. However, once
you're using for a week or tow, you start to feel
horrible without it. Physically you feel like you have
a really bad case of the flu, and emotionally you feel
like everything in your life is bad.
Q: What drugs have you
A: Well, I used to use alcohol, pot, and heroin
the most, but I've also tried ecstasy, acid,
mushrooms, crack, cocaine, prescription drugs, opium,
special K, and probably anything else you've ever

A: I stopped taking drugs by going to rehab and AA
(Alcoholics Anonymous) or NA (Narcotics Anonymous)

place. Drugs are stupid. Be who you want to
Q: What is the strongest drug
you have tried?
Q: Where did you first try
A: I first tried drugs outside in a park with some
of my friends.
Q: Has someone ever offered you
A: Other than people I know that use drugs, and
people that know I use drugs, no. No random person has
just walked up to me and offered me drugs.
Q: Do any of your friends take
A: All of my old friends use drugs, but now that
I'm sober, almost none of my friends use

plain and simple. I was sick and tired of being sick
