When I was 16, a friend of mine gave me some Vicodin to try. 2 years later I was a daily pill user, losing jobs, houses, everything I owned. When pills were too much, heroin came in. Overdoses soon followed, then jail time, and finally landing in prison. As soon as I was out I was using again, prison changes nothing. I got on suboxone which was great until I was back to stealing to pay for them. Lost another job and told myself I was done with the strips. Withdrawals were so long and painful I kept relapsing on heroin. A friend gave me some kratom and it changed my life. 2 years after that day, I have a house, a wife, a job I have held with no problems and numerous promotions. I could not have changed my life without kratom!
