A Cocaine Story
Derrick was the life of the party, always enjoying, loved to dance, and was funny with a drink or two. Girls swooned around his charm, and money flowed when he took any of them out. Of course he could afford it, rolled out a small website that was into selling some of the best known products. He soon had clients wanting it from all over the world. Derrick became a millionaire overnight, and had friends in all places. Most of them just wanting to hang around and benefit from the times he reached into his pockets.
He didn’t have the slightest idea how he got into addiction, and how cocaine became something to relieve him of all the stress and take him to a new level. It happened one night while he was out drinking with a new set of friends, he was totally stressed from work, and had just gone though a rough patch with his longtime girlfriend. One of his so-called friends only induced him to take a sniff, and he sportingly obliged. What took off after that was just a downfall, a terrible one that made him loose most of everything around him.
Suzanne happened to call Derrick a few days later only to discover that he seemed indifferent to what she had to say. Although she called in to get back together, and say she was sorry to have caused him pain. His aloofness in trivial matters over the call got her even more worried. When she opened the door to his once neatly kept apartment, she found him sleeping on the floor, and the house was a total chaos. It didn’t seem like he ate or drank anything, since the kitchen seemed to be spared of the mess.
She called up his company, and his secretary was worried, she said Derrick didn’t show up at work since the past few days, and didn’t answer calls as well. On further checking the place she found the reason for the entire mess. Small sheets of rolled paper left and the table had some white powdery substance on it. She instantly knew what happened. How couldn’t she, she had lost her elder brother to cocaine!
She cleared his home of the mess, and waited patiently for him to wake up. She wasn’t giving up this time, and didn’t want to see another one fall prey to cocaine. Once Derrick woke she began to talk to him, nicely and gently she broached the subject. She wanted to know what made him get into this mess. After hours of confrontation, with a whole lot of angry outbursts, Derrick picked up the phone to get into a drug addiction rehab.
Addiction is not something that you can fight against, but the addicted has to make up their mind to get out of it. With this half the battle is won!
