A New Low Everyday
by Nicole Arenar
I started using drugs after an accident with a gun. I totally shot myself in the leg while someone was stealing the gas from my car. I was in that half asleep state where I was aware of my surroundings but unable to wake myself.
It was a very terrifying experience and I still suffer from PTS. There was one surgery, a mesh graph of the femoral artery and then came the drugs! I was prescribed narcotic pain medication that became my life after only a couple months.
It took years for me to become a thief and prostitute, but every day I lost a piece of my conscience and a piece of myself. I drove away family and hurt everyone I knew. I can't imagine how they would look at me if they truly knew the things I'd seen and done.
I have much more to tell if you are interested. My story is long and shocking and full of dangerous illegal and horridly immoral tales.
This story is true and I am proud to say that I have been clean of narcotic pain medication for nearly a year now. I am happy and ready to begin a whole new chapter of my life.
