What it was like?
Crystal Methamphetamine was my Drug of Choice. I lost some family members and my girlfriend, along with my job. My physical health deteriorated as well.
Hello. My name is Tristen, and i am a recovering Crystal Methamphetamine addict. my story starts when i was 12 years old; it was near 7 p.m., my cousin and i were hungry and we decided to go steal from a grocery store so that we could eat. We ended up stealing lots of snacks after we smoked about 3 blunts in the bathroom of the store. Once we finished smoking we went to walk out of the bathroom when the store manager confronted us. He obviously smelled marijuana, but we denied the claims and quickly ran out of the store, nothing (legally) ever became of this situation thankfully. Marijuana became less and less numbing for my emotional pain i was having, so i experimented with Crystal Meth and became hooked.
What it is like now?
Now for my current negatives. I have extremely yellow teeth, I am now diagnosed with Autism, Bipolar Disorder, and Depression thanks to my usage. I also was just recently cure of Drug Induced Psychosis. Now for my current positives. I am in court ordered drug treatment and am doing well. I am attending college with a 4.0 GPA in each class, and I am working on getting my GED. I am also holding up a job along with all else.
