Today’s generation of kids don’t know it yet, but the pharmaceutical agency is going to take full advantage of them as soon as they believe drugs are “cool” or whatever the claim is. My little brother is 12, he’s a 6th grader at jfs. Now let me just say something, today’s middle schools are FUCKED. Kadin comes home with stories about the things that happen and it’s all similar to what I went through, but my god. These kids are gonna be pill & weedheads at the age of 13 & I wanna protect my brother before he’s pressured into anything. For some reason when he’s around his friends he can’t say no and although he’s such a good kid he doesn’t make very good decisions sometimes.. I mean he is only 12, but I bought my first Vicodin at 14 and I need to protect him from falling into a destructive path like I did. He needs to have his own experiences and learn from his own mistakes absolutely, and I can’t shield him from the real world that I refuse, but I was thoroughly fucked in the head for 8 years & then became a secret drug fiend. I never thought it wasn’t okay because first of all I was prescribed a lot of shit and if the doctors thought it was okay to take things then i thought pills were safe. I don’t want him to have that same mindset, I want him to form his own opinions obviously but he’s 12. I haven’t been a sister to him in about 8 years and I think the least I can do is protect him from ever taking a pill. he has an old soul & he’s mature for his age, both my brothers & I always have been well beyond our time. I fell victim to benzos and I don’t want him to ever fall into a destructive path like I did because he’s impulsive like me and might not think first.
