15 years old....a recovering Meth user
I am 15 years old, and I started using Meth when I was 11, you know right around that time where kids are learning to 'Say NO to Drugs'. I figured that it didn't hurt anybody, I was the one using it. I just didn't think it could hurt anybody, I was wrong. It hurt my family more than I could have ever imagined.
I lied to my family, I stole from them and somehow I thought I wasn't hurting them. Can you even imagine thinking that doesn't hurt someone. I was really messed up. I have been clean for about 6 months. I turn 16 next month. And no I wont be getting my license. I hurt my parents so bad they don't trust me to drive yet. For now we agreed when I become a senior. And the fact that I haven't been held back in school is a miracle.
I don't have a huge story to share, just wanted to get the word out that using drugs hurts everybody, and get help. Don't be afraid to get help, go to rehab for yourself and for everyone you love.
