31-Year-Old Says He Uses Cocaine And Prescription Drugs For A ‘Happy Medium’

Donnie admits that he uses cocaine and dope and sells them as well. He says his drug use began 10 years ago when he started taking prescription medication. “The first drug I took was Percocet. I like the way I felt with it. It calmed me down. I’ve gotten in a lot of fights in my day, and taking those, all that stopped,” says the 31-year-old. “I went to coke because sometimes, you get a little bit too down, and you had to bring yourself back up, so there was a happy medium between the opiates and the coke that just kind of kept me level.” Donnie says his dad used to give him money, but when he recently cut him off, Donnie started using heroin. “Had I been shooting dope for eight, nine years and my dad didn’t give me that money, I’d be dead,” he says. Donnie, who claims he’s been sober for a few weeks because his dad cut him off, describes the “hustle” to get drugs. And, hear how he admits he has used women to support his habit.
