I’m writing this letter to prove that the decision I made affected a lot of people and I’ve learned from my mistakes. I do not blame anybody but myself for the situation I’m currently in right now. Over the course of the years in school my grades have been affected by many different obstacles and personal challenges. My first semester was really tough for me socially and academically. My friends were doing things I knew wasn’t right, but I never said anything. I wanted to be “cool”, Until they started offering me to do the same. I didn’t want to get in trouble, and I knew what the consequences could be, but I didn’t want them to think I wasn’t doing it because I would tell someone, so I just went along with it. I took the pills and i didn’t feel any different nothing was happening. I told my friends that it didn’t do anything so the next she gave me six more.
First, it got hard for me to stay awake, I couldn’t concentrate, I was scared that if I fell asleep I wouldn’t wake up again. My friend just told me it was normal the first time, but then I really messed up and did it again, every time taking more because my body was becoming immune to the pain pills she had been giving me. I got so used to it, that I was asking her for more, begging her, paying ridiculous amounts for them, until we got caught. I quickly realized what had happened to me, I was in a hole, and there was no way to dig myself back out. We got in so much trouble, and since then I’ve learned not to trust as many people, and to definitely make the correct decisions, because I hate myself for putting myself out there when I knew it was wrong from the beginning.
