Once upon a time there was a boy named Dan. Dan was a smart
person who had never touched a drug in his life and did well in
school. One day one of his friends said that they were going to try this
completely safe but ...view middle of the document...
Later that week Dan experimented for the first time on ecstasy. He
felt great and liked how it made him so happy so decided that he was
going to take it more often. The next week Dan wasn’t feeling good
so he decided that he was going to take the pills since he bought
some from this guy that he met with his friends at the mall. After
taking the pill Dan once again felt great and started using almost
once a day. After he saw that the pills were going great and not
hurting his body at all he decided that he would take them a lot more
so that people would like him better. In school Dan realized that his
grades were slipping because it was very hard for him to focus but
Dan didn’t care that much anymore. After a few months of taking the
pills a lot he started to become addicted to them. By this time Dan’s
grades were all F’s and so he dropped out of scool. When Dan was
addicted to this drug he did not care about anybody else or what
everyone thought of him he just wanted to have the drugs so he could
feel good all the time and not have to worry about everything else.
When Dan had the drug a lot he was not getting the same affect as
he used to so he started taking more than one or two at a time and
One day about a year later Dan went to take his pills again and he
took so many at once that his body could not handle it so he
collapsed. Since Dan stopped talking to his family a long time ago he
was just living by himself he had no on to help him. After a while Dan
was found and someone called the cops. When the cops did all the t
ests they realized that he had no pulse and that Dan was dead. Dan
had ruined his whole life just by taking a pill.
