How It Feels to Be an Addict: Destined, Predisposed, or Millennial Made Publisher's summary

Have you ever wondered what it might be like to be an addict? Do you know someone that is an addict and can not fathom how they got to that point in their lives?

Addicts are not always hooked at their first taste of drugs. Not all drugs effect everyone in the same way. One person may take one sip of alcohol and never put the bottle down for decades.

Each person’s body and chemical makeup is different from each other. We all have different vices depending on our personality types, genetic predisposition, stress and hormone levels, and what mental state of mind we are in.

My addiction started on prom night. I was the Captain of the Wrestling team, Honors Society, track team, baseball team, Yearbook Sports Editor, Umpired Baseball, and found time for community service hours as well. One could say I should have known better, and at one point I did.

So, you may ask, what went wrong? For me it was being let down by my long-time friend and prom date. She stood me up at prom to go and do some MDMA. My prom date left five minutes after we showed up and then took the limo and left me alone. I took it personally. I told myself that...
