It only takes one time. I’m a senior in high school, and I’ll be graduating in less than a month. I have two jobs, volunteer, hold A & B’s as my grades, took many advanced classes, and have a full ride scholarship to college for my next 4 years. My life should be perfect, but I started drinking with my close friend this year and have been keeping it a secret. I decided to try marijuana for the first time last week, just to see what it was like. As my luck would have it, I was one out of six kids out of my whole school to be randomly drug tested yesterday morning. I have no clue what’s going to happen now but the pot wasn’t worth it. I feel like crap and I may have just screwed myself over. My parents keep asking me “why?” and I honestly have no clue. I just don’t care I guess. I have all these people who love me but I honestly don’t care about myself. Yes, I should have known not to do it. I’m smart and I’ve seen what drugs to do people first hand. But I just didn’t care.
