I was addicted to meth for quite a few years while I was with my last boyfriend. When we got together he seemed amazing, hardworking and loving. That all came to a haul when we started to do cocaine together. It started just every weekend, then we started doing it during the week. After a about a week of doing it everyday, it started to make us tired, so we started using meth on a daily basis for years because it was cheap and able to keep us up for weeks.
We started to lose everything, our cars, our houses, our jobs. We did some pretty horrible things to get money, drugs and cars.
We had to buy a cheap car and live in that with our two dogs. We moved to Nova Scotia where we did some pretty horrible things to be able to get money and survive.
When we moved back to Ottawa our car got impounded so we became homeless, that’s when things got horrible. My ex got really abusive and started to control everything about me. I wasn’t allowed to eat, use the phone or go online. I went two weeks without eating, and one day he got mad and knocked me out, the next day I stole his phone and called my mother. 15 minutes later she picked me up. While we were in the car she told me that the cops had an arrest Warrent for me so she was taking me to the police station. Once we got there I was charged with 12 counts of various things.
