I was sixteen and I was in my fourth year of high school. I used to mingle with my close friends. I never thought that with them – a catastrophic event was about to change my life. With my friends I could feel a definite happiness in myself: Chatting, laughing and teasing to one another. We’re like brothers – sharing to each other of our distress, yearnings and our love life.
With my friends, I had started to take and had enjoyed those forbidden drugs. Those pot sessions of marijuana and other drugs were exciting. I could feel a great innovationhappening to me. I had the feeling of strength in my body and mind, seemed like I had the power to control things around me. Sometimes, I felt I could fly with the open air; an exciting hallucination. I could see hundreds of blinking stars smiling at me. Wow! What a life? It was so good.
Those forbidden drugs almost have changed my life. I had always quarreled with my brother and sister and I had no time to concentrate with my study. Most of the time, I was with my friends with those drugs. The pains, the afflictions I had felt have vanished. I could say that it was the real life for a teenager to live and enjoy. But I was wrong. I was already addicted to drugs and I dropped from school.
My parents said, “We are providing you with anything you need the most: money, gold and all
Yes. I had everything to enjoy: a sport car, dozens of imported shoes, clothes, gold and other luxury materials. I enjoyed all those things.
My parents took me to a rehabilitation center in Manila. I stayed there for a 6-month treatment. After the six months of being isolated from my love ones, I realized that those drugs have nothing to give me. They ruined my life!
