There's a hole in my head

County law enforcement officers have called meth their biggest challenge. Legislation is currently under consideration in many states and cities to restrict the sale of over the counter cold medicines, which are the key ingredient in meths manufacture. What about the users though? What sort of story do they have to tell about meth and the consequences of using it? Al Mathison recently interviewed a woman who was serving a felony sentence for possession of narcotics in a southern Minnesota jail. She was willing to talk openly about her life and meth addiction as long as her name was not used. The following is her story in her own words.

I got pregnant at 17 and I moved in with my boyfriend. Hes my ex now; we were together for 13 years. I started drinking on the weekends right after I had the baby. Then it was every weekend and then every day. When I turned 21 I had two DWIs in three days. Then at 25 I got another one. I never went back to get my license cause I figured I knew Id drink and drive.I wasnt allowed to work when I was with my ex. He wanted me to be a stay at home mom, which probably wasnt healthy for me, because I was a closet drinker. We always had enough money. It was like he was very controlling. So when we broke up after 13 years, its like I suddenly had my own life. Thats when I started to get into drugs and started to drink real heavy. The breakup wasnt painful. I loved it. I drank whiskey at first, then vodka. I was like binge drinking. I was going to detox all the time. But I didnt do drugs until I was 26. I didnt really get into it again until I was 29, I started doing cocaine then it went to meth because meth was a hell of a lot cheaper.I had plenty of money and there was always a party at my house, it was kind of like Id just gotten out of high school. I didnt have a boyfriend but I had a couple sugar daddies.Then I started working but I didnt really need that job. I was getting about four thousand per month free money from my sugar daddies and my job only paid like 14 dollars an hour. It was just assembly line stuff. I started drinking on the job in the bathroom stalls, straight vodka. I was hanging out with a girlfriend from work, who liked to smoke crack. I had the money and she had a husband she didnt want to hang around, and so shed hang out at my house and we partied and thats how I start .....
