Are you strong enough?

Think about every decision you make in your life, because if you don’t, then who will? All my life I’ve been surrounded by weed smokers and heavy drinkers. Yes, I was a part of it sadly to say. Yes, I was the one who was lost and thought the drugs would help me. Instead it made me forget who I was. Even now I’m still trying to build my own character and become my own woman. I’ve been smoking and drinking since I was 12. Now I’m 18, it’s been six years of throwing my life away. Change is possible. Look deep down inside and think to yourself and for yourself to see if this is what you want. Like my grandmother always said, “You Smoke, You buy, You live you die.”
