Drug struggles

The best way to convey the truth about drugs is through the words of those who have  “been there.” By telling their stories, they can pass on what they have learned so others avoid going down the same path.

Share this information with your friends. Drug education saves lives.

“My goal in life wasn’t living…it was getting high. I was falling in a downward spiral towards a point of no return. Over the years, I turned to cocaine, marijuana and alcohol nder a false belief it would allow me to escape my problems. It just made things worse. I had everything, a good job, money, a loving family, yet I felt so empty inside. As if I had nothing. Over twenty years of using, I kept saying to myself, I’m going to stop permanently after using this last time. It never happened. There were even moments I had thought of giving up on life.”  John

 

“It started with the weed, then the pills (Ecstasy) and acid, making cocktails of all sorts of drugs, even overdosing to make the rushes last longer. I took copious amounts of these chemicals every day for as long as two years until I had a bad trip one night and went into toxic psychosis. I prayed and cried for this feeling to go away, I had voices in my head, had the shakes and couldn’t leave home for six months. I became very withdrawn and thought everyone was watching me. I couldn’t walk in public places. Man! I couldn’t even drive.

“I ended up homeless and on the streets, living and sleeping in a cardboard box, begging and struggling to find ways to get my next meal.

“I asked myself if this is rock bottom, and I believe that it was. While observing these homeless people  I decided that I had had enough. Yes I wanted drugs, but I realized that I could want life more.” Ben

Never back down

Never back down the movie

This movie shows you that there is nothing that you can not do that you can take on anything and over come it. You just have to put in the hard work and no matter what happens just give it your all and never back down.
