The Human Aspect of Sindre

My addiction had taken over my life and confined me to my apartment seeking my next high. Growing up I felt like an outsider and when I was suddenly welcomed into the popular group, I wanted to stay. When the group experimented with drugs, I kept my distance for a long time, but eventually, I caved. Our consumption escalated along with the consequences of trying to hide it and my life started slipping.
