Gave Me the High...and the Low
Citation:   CAPS. "Gave Me the High...and the Low: An Experience with GHB (exp21604)". Jan 28, 2019.

  repeated oral GHB (daily)
This drug began as a thing to do on weekends and then turned my life into a living hell. My boyfriend introduced this to me when I was the age of 16...he started doing as a working out supplement, if we only knew what this drug had in store for us, I think things would be a lot different. We did this drug at home..we weren't the club going type, but we enjoyed getting a nice social buzz.

As time progressed, we were going through whole gatorade bottle a day and our sleeping patterns were all over the place. Needless to say this drug had us hooked and ruining our relationship and lives..but as long as we had the G, we didn't care about anything else. I dropped out of school, and overosed 3 times. My parents were out of their minds. I was never the drug type, and would never risk my life over & over again.

The thing is, I wouldn't be aware if I was going to O.D. or depended on my body that day. We would be blacking out all the time, and my boyfriend even got his father addicted. The cops never caught on. After breaking up with my boyfriend after knowing that I couldn't be like this anymore after doing it for 2 years straight. My withdraws were HELL. Xanax helped a little.

Now a year later, I'm sober, back with my boyfriend (he's as well sober) but at times I miss that buzz, but I don't miss the life it led me buzz is worth that pain for myself & family. I wish I had someone with the knowledge I needed then that I have know.
