Cause and Effect of my Hallucinations

- The cause and effect of drugs seems like an easy topic to write about, you take drugs to get high and the effect is that it screws up your life. Well, thats just stating the obvious. My story is slightly more unique than that. I started drugs because I was not satisfied with the everyday life. Life was just too boring and routine for me. My sophomore year of high school I discovered my brother's ADHD medication, Adderal. My first experiences with Adderal were pure satisfaction. Take enough of the drug and you will sit in one spot for 8 hours talking your head off and it will feel as if it was only one hour....   [tags: Cause and Effect, Hallucinations, ]
