I was only 10 when I first took cocaine.

12th Oct 2011

I was 10 years old when I first tried cocaine. Looking back now, I see how stupid and naive I had been, but the truth is, I trusted the people around me. That was the biggest mistake I’ve ever made.

I tend to get in with the wrong crowds quite a lot. I had a rough 4 years starting from the age of 9. I was mixing with 18 and 19 year olds, letting them dress me up and give me fixes. Coke one night, speed the next. I rarely went anywhere near my school, and when I did I was badly bullied, causing me to bunk more to be with these other people. I was desperate to fit in with them. I was young and willing and didn’t know right from wrong, they did whatever they wanted with me. It makes me sick to think of it now. I was their toy and they loved to play me around.

My family moved when I turned 13 and for a year I managed to stay clean. The first few months were horrendous but I pulled through and was finally beginning to enjoy my last couple of years as a child. And then it all happened again.
