Wake Up Call? Crystal Meth Addiction?

Question by : Wake up call? Crystal Meth Addiction?
I’m 17 years old, fatherless, pretty much raised myself and everything I’ve done in life I did it myself because I had no one to turn to.

I’be been abusing drugs since I was 12. I smoke weed everyday, I used to take acid every weekend, I used to take a lot of pills, drink alot of cough medicine, prescriptions, anything I could get my hands on.. and just recently I was offered meth for the first time (where I actually considered it) It was offered many times before, but I just never went near it.

I’ve been smoking crystal meth for the past 5 days straight. I’ve smoked atleast a gram to myself over this 5 day period, I feel like shit, its coming down and I never want to go near it again because I can not stand what I feel like after. But I have a feeling I’ll want to do it again when I’m not coming down, but I’m not going near it.
