I will be 52 years old next June 5, I have 4 sons, three from my first marriage and one from my second. I first started smoking between 11 and 12 years old, I had my first drink between 12 and 13 and my first marijuana use at age 14. After this my life climbed into a pit of despair using amphetamines, peyote, LSD, cocaine and hallucinogenic mushrooms. I both free-based and injected my drugs.
I want to emphasize that my drug use began at such an early age. It is so important for parents to know what their kids are doing, where they are going and whom are they hanging out with. There are also the cases where the parents almost encourage drug use through not being involved and tolerating use by their children. When we start using so young we quickly need more and more of the drug to get as high as before.
