- All I wanted to do, if it had been in front of my face, is do it.
- It just turned me into a monster.
- I never thought any of this would ever happen to me. Once we started getting high, it was done.
- 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.
- Started taking three at a time, and then I was taking four at a time, and then I started taking…
- I became addicted that day.
- When you’re getting high, it’s not just a drug.

- Stealing from my family.
- Married mother of three and I’m stripping.
- It will take you to hell and back.
- It’s not just a little pill.
- It takes control of you.
- I started using heroin.
- The same heroin that just killed me.
- You can’t go back and say I’m sorry.
- It will win.
- It will get you.
- Her sister found her.
- Died in her sleep.
- My daughter.
- She was dead.
- And that was the end.
- This is the largest drug epidemic that we have ever faced.
