    Brittany's MP3 High Low


    "I started drinking and smoking marijuana when I was ten years old and now I'm fifteen years old.  I'd go into my parents liquor cabinet and have parties and invite my friends over whenever my parents were out-of-town.  We would see how much we could drink before we did something silly.  My best friend Susan was 18 years old.    One night, we decided to drive to the mall and hang out.  Susan was the only one with a drivers license.  That night Susan seemed kind of out-of-it, and I know I shouldn't have gotten into the car with her, but I didn't want to show that I was scared or chicken to drive with her.  I never knew that Susan had been arrested before for drunk driving.  She was my best friend but she never told me that.   Anyway, that night on the way to the mall, we had the radio blasting and we never heard the oncoming fire engine.  I can't remember exactly what happened, but I ended up in the hospital for 3 months with a broken pelvis and punctured lung.  My best friend Susan died at the scene.  I went through drug rehabilitation and I'm okay today.  But I will never forget what happened and I'll never party with drugs or alcohol again and I'll never drive with anyone who drinks and uses DRUGS!"

    To be  ignorant of the effects of drugs on the nervous system is to be at a very high risk of using those substances and dying from the consequences. "Drugs Rule", huh? I simply cannot express how much I hope for all people with this opinion to come around. Destroy yourself if you must, but expect no sympathy.

    I am sorry to hear about what happened to you and for the loss of your best friend. And I'm sorry that it took such a horrible tragedy to 'wake' you up to the dangers of drugs and drinking. I have a question for you, since you have been through the worst ever. I have a 13 year old who has already smoked pot, drank, and who knows what else, she is depressed and has been in a behavioral hospital for a week 2 months ago but still I don't think me and her dad are helping her. she is on meds and getting counseling, but what else do you think I can do to keep her away from drugs?
