Brittany started drinking and smoking marijuana at the tender age of 13 years old. Then came prescription pills. It was just experimenting and made her feel good.
All these activities were pretty minimal until Oxycontin was introduced to her by a college room-mate. Her anxieties disappeared. Her insecurities were gone and she was completely confident. Brittany felt that she could take on the world when she was on Oxycontin.
She had doctors that she would go to for prescriptions. These doctors knew full well that she was an addict.
All her money, time and effort went into Oxycontin - tens of thousands of dollars has gone down the drain to feed for Oxycontin addictions. She even resorted to lying and stealing as time went by.
Oxy was everything to her.
It got to a point where she was extremely depressed, to a point of suicidal. She could not bare to look at herself.
She wrote letters to her family and friends that she never sent and they have never seen, telling them how sorry she was, but she didn't know how to get out of it. She doesn't know how to fix it or whether it can be fixed at all.
"These drugs will kill you. Not everyone will get the chance to make it out the other end."
