drug shoot

Why I always want to quit then use again....

“I’m miserable when I’m high because I’m using and I know it’s wrong; I’m miserable when I’m clean because I’m not high and it feels wrong.”

stop

please don’t romanticize drug use, until you’ve stayed up for entire days because you took too many pills. please dont romanticize drug use, until you’ve stolen from people you love. please dont romanticize drug use until you’ve had to look your parents dead in the eyes, tell them you use, and watch them cry. please dont romanticize drug use until you’ve forgotten what its like to be sober. please dont romanticize drug use until you’ve picked drugs over a relationship. please dont romanticize drug use until you’ve gone through the hell of withdrawal. please dont romanticize drug use until you’ve had to tell your brother and sister not to use, because you dont want them to end up like you.
please dont romanticize drug use until the circles under your eyes are darker than your eyeliner. please dont romanticize drug use until you’ve spent your christmas and birthday money on pills to numb the pain. please dont romanticize drug use until you’ve only felt beautiful when you were high as a kite. please dont romanticize drug use until you know what its like to constantly chase a high. please dont romanticize drug use until you know everything about medicine and you arent even a pharmacist. please dont romanticize drug use until you have felt the come down. please dont romanticize drug use until you’ve layed on the floor asking god for a little bit more time. please dont romanticize drug use until you’ve laid down in bed to sleep and asked yourself if you were going to wake up in the morning. please dont romanticize drug use until youve had to call your childhood friend and begged them to take you to the hospital because you overdosed. please dont romanticize drug use until you let it take over your life. please dont romanticize drug use until you’ve lived through the dirty shit. its not fair for the addicts who are dirty, dead, and dying while you talk about how “fun” and “recreational” drug use is. its not glamorous. its not a fun hobby. its not a phase. its not a sport. its not sparkly. its not rewarding. it doesnt make you cool. its not grunge or hipster. it breaks hearts. it destroys familys. it ruins people. it steals your money, memory, health, wealth, potential, stamina, intelligence, and life. unless you’re ready to make the life long commitment, for better and for worst, through withdrawal and through highs, till death do you part, please dont romanticize drug use.
