Hey my name is Brandon and I am an addict. My path started when I was about 16. I started with perk 5s and I though it was the best thing I have ever done. I have smoked weed before but the perks top that. I loved the high and the numb feeling that it gave me. Well I started to do them every day trying to get that first high but never could get it. I started to do more and more until I got to where I was doing 7 30s a day and started shooting them up. By that time I was around 19. When I was about 20 my so call friend told me about this drug that is so much better than the 30s and way cheaper so I was game. I got my first bag and did half of it and didn't really feel anything off it so I did the other half a felt a little bit. But I wanted to get the full effect of the drug. Me being me I got 3 more bags and done a full bag and that is when it hit me and I loved it until I cought a felony for stealing from the place that I was working. I went to jail for 3 months and I though it was the worst place in the world. When I got out of jail I got signed up for my probation and thought it was going to be easy I reported a few times and they never drug tested me so I went out and got a few bags and started to shoot up again. And I stop reporting or trying to call. On the sixth of June I had to go to court for a driving under suspension and they put me on non reporting probation for that. No big deal I will just go sign up for it and be on my way. Well I was way wrong. The probation officer drug tested me. I failed for subs, dope, and pills. I went to jail that day. My felony probation officer put a holder on me and I did 5 months in the jail that time and it was a wake up call. They let me out and that night I went to a NA meeting and with the loving welcome I got I kept going and now I am 5 months and 2 weeks clean and I am doing good. This was just a short version of my story I left out so much. It is a little peace of what I went through.
