    Shannon's MP3 N/A N/A

    I just got my licence. I was so excited to go out with my friends and everything so we all went to hangout. Everyone has been depressed because we have lost 2 friends this year. That's when I got involved with drugs. I met this grl and we became best friends. We would hang out all the time. We started smoking weed and drinking. It got to the point where we went to school high all the time. Then we went driving around one night and we didn't smoke but our friends in the other car where smoking. There was 5 of them and in the end only 2 survived. Me and my friend still got in trouble even though we had nothing on us but we knew them and now I can't drive till I'm 18 and we have 3 friends dead. It was a sad night and will never forget it. It's hard to see what it takes to make you stop doing drugs.

    sorry to hear about your friends. thats sad just having that much pressure put upon you. well yeah you still get high why?? to heel the pain but it is controllable so you have no excuse to not being able to stop. you go to school stoned?? i used to do that but than i realized that if your going to go to school stoned why go? your not going to learn anything. i think you should just move on that was the past when you grieve does it bring them back? no, so why do you get high for? just be able to hang out with your family they'll make you happy bcus you'll just be wating your life in grief sorry

    Shannon, know that your friends are in a better place rather than invalids @ home. Don't ever blame yourself, but talk about it and "celebrate" their lives. They would want it that way. I have a 15 yr old who is making all the wrong choices. She is on probation and set to be in detention by the end of the month. She lost a friend too, although she was not with her. I only hope that she turns her life around as you say you are going to. As far as people's negative comments. They are ignorant babe. Don't let them get to you. You made a differance in the 10 yr old who wrote you. Be proud of that
