I'll never touch speed again.

Whilst out clubbing one night, one of my friends offered me Speed. I had already been drinking and I didn't know much about the drug, but decided to take some anyway. I quickly started to feel the effects. At first, I felt very happy, talkative and energetic. As the night progressed, my friends and I took more and more speed, and continued to drink. I started feeling light-headed and by the end of the night, I felt very sick, and my heart was beating very fast. My mood plummeted to a very low state. I felt empty and I just wanted to go home. When I got home, I stayed in bed wide-awake. I felt terrible and had no idea that it was about to get worse. The next day was one of the worst days of my life. I felt extremely sick. I couldn't eat and was drifting in and out of sleep. I remember feeling very strange, at one point I felt like my entire body was paralysed. I was so scared that I was going to die, I thought about telling my parents but I felt so much shame. I decided to look up Speed on Frank, to see what I had actually taken. It says that you should not mix Speed with alcohol or antidepressants, as the effects can be fatal. I take antidepressants for anxiety and I had been drinking heavily. I had panic attack after panic attack thinking I was going to die. I was close to phoning an ambulance but I didn’t want my parents to find out. I just wanted to take the entire night back. The effects wore off after a few days. I felt such relief. I'm glad that nothing more happened to me and that I'm still okay now. I would never touch Speed again and it has put me off all other drugs. All it takes is one silly mistake to end your life. And I am so glad it didn’t end mine.
