i drink and take drugs to get away from reality..but i know im just trying to get away from myself.my life has been too frustrating and too stressful not to be tempted. hell, i had my first hit of weed when i was in the sixth grade. i have never done anything else but pot....but i used to be an alcoholic..when i was 14. im 15 now...and im trying to get over it. do i regret what i do? no...its the only way to face the world..and keep on going. i do what i have to do.
