I started experimenting with painkillers my junior year. I had 12 pills of Vicodin over a period of 4 days, I mixed it with alcohol, advil, Zyrtec and other things. I got really sick and was in the hospital for 3 weeks. I missed a lot of school and lost a lot of friends. Now, I've been 2 months clean and have a great support system keeping me clean. When you use and abuse substances you lose those who are close to you and you lose time with the ones you love.
