Wasn't You!

You think it's cool when you get high.
You don't even see the things that go by.
Time flies when you're having fun.
But one day your body can't handle
What you have done.

Your body is weak
But you think you are strong
The next month has came along
You're in the hospital 
Thinking what have I done.
You O.D that's quite sad
Your going to end up just like your dad
Living on the streets no place to go
Bumming off money so you can
Sniff up the nose. That sounds
Great what a plan If you
Stop now we can get you help
You don't have to be like this
It's like you are crying for help
What made you do drugs
We haven't a clue
But we know it's done bad
Things for you

It's been a few months you're back in ER
Pumping your stomach
That don't go very far.
You had a choice
Of what to do so I guess this
Is the new you, this is what you
Accomplished in the past few years.

As time goes by your addiction gets worse
You're in the hospital once a week.
As days go by you can barley get up
On your feet.

Today's the day you get put in the ground
I guess you made your choice. You didn't make it
As far as your dad but hey some people just end
Up lucky when they do drugs that one WASN'T YOU!

ADDICT AND WIFE. I'm a meth addict for 13 years now. My wife and I have been married for 15 years and been together for 17 years. Until just this past year I've hidden my addiction from her since my addiction started. She did not find out on her own, its just time to stop lying to her and to myself. But since the day I told her our marriage is holding by a thread. I'm still an addict that can't see my own addiction... I've made promises that I would quit but I have broken those promises. I've put her through HELL and lived our marriage as a lie. I quit once before and I think its time to retire the pipe, the foil, the straw, and needles so I can be married as HUSBAND AND WIFE...
