Drugs Destroy Dreams



I have something important I‘d like to tell your readers. I hope they listen. While visiting Gila County with my boyfriend, I made a terrible decision and chose to use drugs. I want your readers to know that if you choose to use methamphetamine it will ruin your life as it has mine. Not only will it give you a criminal history, but it can also destroy your body and your health.

Before the drugs, I was a production control engineer. I had a house and supported my two children. Now, at age 25, I traded that life for this life - one in which I will face many challenges. The drugs have permanently damaged my heart. I almost died from congestive heart failure.

I know I have a long road ahead of me, but I want to make things right for me and my children.

Please talk to your children and tell them not to use drugs. It's not worth it.
