I never viewed myself as a weak-minded person, and that I would EVER fall prey to drugs. I did not understand the fascination with it, nor understood how one can become addicted to it. I had stereotyped the images of those who are addicts. Little did I know, drugs do affect all and every facet of people. Drugs are conniving, manipulating, deceiving, and very powerful. It entered into my life, like a well-crafted thief. It finessed me, it blinded me, and it showed me love. It molded me into a person, I no longer recognized. I lied, cheated, stole, manipulated, fandangle, and have done all matters of evil to cope a fix. It raped me of my self-esteem, my self-worth and my identity. As I was seeking refuge, desiring a form of release that was crowding my every thought, and I turned to the enemy. It guaranteed me rest, a clear mind, and a different outlook. Boy was I bamboozled! The story does not start there! It begins with a young girl struggling to find her fit in her family, school, and life. Abused, self-inflicted pain, full-blown addict, to a survivor.
