"I was at a party with my best friend. We were 16 or 17 years old. This was the first time I had seen or heard of meth. I didn't try it, but my best friend did, and was immediately hooked. Over one year, things changed drastically. She became so thin, her skin was hanging from her bones - I barely recognized her. She didn't seem to care or notice that she had become a wreck and was dying. She became completely paranoid, and lashed out at people. She began seeing shadow people, and acting completely schizophrenic. She would cry all the time about the shadow people making fun of her. She became so depressed that she even cut her own wrists and was hospitalized, yet even all through that, she still did meth. Our relationship as best friends never fully rekindled."
