    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!"

    You know I'm suprised that's what it takes to open people's eyes but when it does happen I'm glad because it shows people how to put certain things into perspective. Congratulations for realizing it before you passed away.

    Hey girl. I'm very proud of you for quiting. It takes a lot to do that. I had many friends like that and I was at one point. I'm glad I got over it and am now sober. It's funny, you know. To say, "I'm now sober" and I'm only 16 years old. Drugs and alcohol ruined my relationship with my dad and got me in quite a tight spot. He still hasn't talked to me since I moved out but I am currently living with me mom and she and her husband are tough! It's great to know someone out there cares. And clearly someone cared about u! Congrats! Your friend, Nikki.

    I'm sorry that your friend passed away... but you should not follow your friends if they tell you to do bad things.
