My brother first started smoking weed and then realized that it wasn't enough and wanted something new. He tried shrooms for the first time through his friends. Ever since that he tried it once or twice. The last time he tried it he was so tripped out that he was driving and crashed into every car in sight. He felt he had to get out of town because it was a very negative place. The cops found him and took him to the hospital. He was in the psychiatric ward for three weeks and the effects did not seem to go away. They were getting worse, different. He heard and saw things that were not of reality. That was when they told him that he had become a schizophrenic/ bipolar because of the effects of the drug. when he got out he was very depressed and decided to go out with his friends. He decided to try it again and did not return home that night. Two days later he came home and looked horrible. My father then took him to the hospital and he ended up staying for another two weeks. After the examinations that they did to him they told him that if he ever tried it again he will lose his mind forever. He is unable to continue his studies in the university he was attendind or obtain a job. He is more depressed than ever and is still in denial. He does not go to the rehab appointments; all he does is stay home and watch t.v. He is my older brother and i once looked up to him. Now im just ashamed of him. Please do not make the same mistake as my brother. look at the people around you. Is it worth it?
