- I’m a criminal. I’m an addict, that’s how everybody will always perceive me.
- That drug was so much more important to you than me.
- From the moment that I got Oxycontin, it took over, and that’s when my addiction started.
- You can be the smartest person in the world, but the minute that chemical hits your bloodstream, you lose control. You can’t control it, nobody can control it, I don’t care who you are.
- Somebody approached me and said ‘Well here, try this,’ and it was Oxycontin 80.
- That’s how this problem always starts.

- It will win.
- It will get you.
- Her sister found her.
- Died in her sleep.
- My daughter.
