Former meth addict admits drug was destroying his life
Methamphetamine is considered one of the most highly addictive drugs out there. Experts say just one use is all it takes to get hooked and start down a dangerous path of addiction.
Justin Sessions said the highs were high, but the lows were the lowest in his life for the 15 years he was hooked on meth. He committed crimes and hurt his family all to get more drugs. And he said the idea of former Arapahoe County Sheriff Pat Sullivan feeding someone’s habit is “demonic”.
Sessions was just a 14-year-old homeless teen hanging out on the 16th Street Mall, when he had his first taste of meth.
“I kind of felt like Superman,” he said. “It drowned out all the feelings I didn’t want to feel, and it intensified all the feelings that I did want to feel.”
The downward spiral started nearly instantly.
“Within a month I was shooting up, and shortly after that I was committing crimes to support my habit,” Sessions said.
On a 6’3” frame, Sessions was down to just 135 lbs.
“I looked like I didn’t even have a soul. Like the walking dead,” he said.
