Entry # 1: Introduction- A living nightmare It wasn’t my choice or desire but it would become my fate and now I’m living a nightmare. Two and a half years ago my ex-boyfriend laced some weed with crack-cocaine without my knowledge.
I knew I felt weird and my heart started beating extremely fast so I asked my ex with the initials (T.Q.M) what kind of weed it was that could make me feel that way and he said that it was called a “woo” and that he had laced the joint with crack-cocaine and for me to sit back and relax. Well, needless to say I could not sit back or relax because I knew what that drug did to people…I was furious!
It cost me my marriage of fifteen years when my ex-husband became addicted to it. I saw ten years of my cousin’s life destroyed because of it and I was told by my uncle and great uncle and other family members who smoked crack to never ever touch it because “one hit was one too many and a thousand would never be enough”.
