    Jeska 's MP3 N/A N/A


    In August of 2004 I did one of the dumbest things in the world. I decided to ditch school with my then boyfriend and his brother. We went to my boyfriends house and his brother handed me a 20oz bottle of everclear and told me to chug it, so I did. After about 3mins I was completly gone and out of control. I began hitting on every guy in sight and cussing at everyone. we decided that i should just go home and try to sleep it off, but on the way home I began puking all over the place and we had to pull over. One of the last things I remember is staring up at a tree. I guess from there the cops and ambulance were called, I was so out of control the EMT refused to ride with me unless someone else was there, so they had to call my boyfriends mom(who really didnt know what was going on) and have her ride to the hospital with me. Upon my arrival to the hospital I went into seisures and my heart stopped beating. that happend twice. It took about 10 hours for me to come down, and then I was sent to Sonora Behavioral health were I could be monitored for Detox. I went home 3 days later and went through teen court deversion program. Now the tought, smell or even tasted makes me throw-up instantly. It was the most stupidest thing I have ever done, and ruined my life. Now my parents dont trust me, I cant get my drivers lisence until I am 18 and I get called names at school. It was definatly not worth it!

    Wow! I am sorry that happened. Your story really shows what peer pressure can do to someone. I am once again sorry for what happened to you. You really had to learn the hard way from right to wrong.

    The person who gave the alcohol could have been responsible if you had died. They new what it would do to you. You could have been raped. Thank god that didn't happen. I used to drink allot when I was a about 14-16 and tried some drugs. I ended up having a child at 17 and dropping out of high school (BIG MISTAKE). I look back and think that all that drinking and drug wasn't worth it. Think twice before you jump , always trust your gut if it doesn't feel right then it's not.

    We'll bless your heart honey. You should have never drank that bottle of Everclear then you would have never been put in that predicament. My advice to you is to stay away from alchol or any other drugs because smokers are jokers and drinkers are stinkers. Also try to regain the trust of your parents even though that may take some time, it is well worth it.
