Fighting Addiction - Poem by Hannah Davies

I am now drug free
This is a new beginning for me.
For three years on drugs I did rely
I thought if I didn't have them I might as well die.

They helped to mask the pain
Stopped me from thinking in the main.
At first I enjoyes the odd one or two
But it got to the point where I needed more to help me through.

Most of my money funded this habit
I was addicted like a rampent rabbit.
I didn't care what I needed to do
As long as I had cannabis to help me through.

I didn't see it as being so bad
It made me forget about my problems, which made me glad.
I would skin up from the moment I opened my eyes
Carried on til late at night, I just wanted to be high.

I didn't care who found out
But then one day I realised it was nothing to be proud about.
It drains you of your wealth
Can cause side effects of your health.

I haven't touched the stuff in so long
It's mind over matter and I'm going strong.
I don't want to go back to be a zombie
I'm happy with the new and improved me.
