Life is tough and some of us need something just a little more and here comes Addiction Canada. In high school all you want to do is fit in but how can you when you are an outsider. This world of drug use you did not even know about so no wonder you didn’t fit it. Once introduced everybody wants to get messed up with you cause you are really a cool person. You start making good friends and hanging out with them everyday. You begin to forget about your family and everything else all you want to do is hang out with your friends and get messed up. Life is tough as a teen and you want to be excepted. Before you know it years go by and all you do is smoke weed, everyday. Seems fun and exciting at the time but then that’s all that you do. Then you notice that all your so called friends talk and do things behind each others back but you think , no way they are doing that to me but your wrong. Weed is a gateway drug before you now your doing other drugs with other people and going into this twisted world and leaving your family and those who really care about you behind. You are barely home grades always slipping and you just don’t care. Then after a long night of partying your one friend does too many drugs. You told him all night that you thought he had enough but he didn’t care. Finally you guys get a couple hours sleep and you wake up all cracked out of your minds. And you go to wake your friend up to go home and take a shower and do it all over again but he is all blue and cold. You check for a pulse and there isn’t one you start to really lose it and don’t know what the hell to do. You call 911 and are scared out of your mind. After hearing from the Addiction Canada doctors it was apparent that he had a drug overdose. Your heart hit’s the floor and you cant believe its all real. After this life changing event you come to realize you’re a drug addict and so are all your friends all you can do it quit, leave, and never look back. It was probably one of the hardest things I have had to deal with but after losing a friend its not worth it. I started going to the gym doing other things not involving drugs. I changed my college GPA from a .61 into a 2.95 and it is still increasing . If I can do it then anyone can do it and its not worth risking your life just to get high.
