Meth, Still Feels Like I'M Addicted

I wonder why I do this, As I take another hit.
I know that when I come down, My life will still be shit.
I feel it burning in my lungs, My eyes water like I cry.
I know that if I keep it up, I very well could die.
I've lost everything to this shit, My relationship, family, and weight.
I feel so out of control with this, I've lost reality, hope, and faith.
My mom cries when she sees me, But I don't seem to care.
I was once my brother's hero, But now I'm never there.
I'm losing everything so fast, Falling deeper in a hole.
I want so bad to be off this shit, It's getting harder to let go.
It's like when you get in this game, There's no getting out.
I feel so hopeless I take a hit, And slowly breathe it out.

    Try to crave the pain like a of being off of it and somehow find meaning and pleasure in that for awhile. Get into the intensity of the pain- somehow, someway: the pain of being off of it. It's an agony that you have to love somehow- learn to love the excruciation of not using it.

    I Related to this poem 110% it opened my eyes and made me realize there's more people out there with the same addiction, when you start you think your the boss.. and slowly you realize you were never the one in control.. I wish you luck hun. I'm still fighting to quit but just keep coming back to it i be 19 here soon and Im realizing how much this addiction has caused me to miss.

    I understand this poem. Meth is the most controlling drug ever. People that have not done it do not understand, they think you can just STOP you can't I have been doing it since I was 15 I am almost 19 and I have been trying to so called STOP since I took the first hit. I just had my son and I stopped smoking as soon as I found out I was pregnant with no intention of ever doing that shit ever again but my boyfriend (baby's dad) went to prison and I am so tired of my pain and meth hurd I was week and called. So I just want you to know if you are really an addict your not alone and
    And people thes poems you read about meth are the real thing! Its not an easy at all to quit
    'you may quit the meth but the meth does not quit you! ! ! '
    Hang in there hun

    Sometime life really seems to be shit, and no drug can ever make things better. Drugs have this nasty thing. They intensify the feelings you have. So when you're depressed you get more depressed, and there's no way out. If you really are an addict... just go, and get some help.
