“Addicted” was a very real and strong piece in the January issue. The anonymous author said things like, “During my using I’ve “seen kids die” about his abuse of drugs and alcohol. This piece made me wonder why people would ever try drugs if such bad things could occur like what happened to this writer. I’ve been encouraging friends to read “Addicted” to realize what drinking and drugs can do and I’ve also been more aware about what is happening around me.
This piece has been published in Teen Ink’s monthly print magazine.
