Well, I ranaway 4 times but only successfully stayed away from home 2 times. When I was gone the first time, all I did was smoke pot and do coc. The reason for me running away was because my Mom did not like the drugs.
Well, I came home and got sent to my dad's that I had not seen in 12 years, so I took advantage of him and did what I wanted to all the time. I have been sent to rehab 2 times. Now I'm sober to this day, but I have only been sober for like 3 months. The second time I ranaway I was hanging out with gang members and doing really bad stuff. I got hooked on speed and loved to get money. Me and my friends beat this lady senseless and took her purse. The girl looked like me. She was 20. I was16, still am. She looked just like me only older so I used her credit cards and check book. We got anything we wanted. I was staying at a hotel where just 1 week before a man was killed and stuck in the closet. They found his body decaying. I beat the crap out of people just because they looked at me funny or was wearing the wrong colors on the wrong side of town. I still can not wear the color red because I could get killed or beat up really bad. I became a stripper and loved to do it man.
To anyone that is reading this who is thinking about running away, just sit down and think about it. I can not say don't do it, because i did it, but it made my life hell. I'm back at home with my dad and his grilfriend and it is so hard. Yes I want to have friends that I can go have clean fun with, but it is hard. But now I'm happy, my families and I have been getting along great, and I'm happier then I ever been. Honestly, if I can do it I feel anyone can.
