Gambo’s story about opioids and addiction

♪ I said I'm big, I'm strong, I'm grown ♪ ♪ I evolve ♪ – I remember just being like a normal teenager, going to parties, hanging out with the girls You know, smoking some weed with my friends, gettin' drunk

And I never thought that my life would go down the path that it did I remember being introduced to pain killers for the first time and having no idea what they were I just knew they were a pill, and they got me high All those drug classes and stuff that I took in school never talked about 'em You know, they talked about heroin, and they talked about crack, and they talked about marijuana, things like that, but they never talked about pain killers

You know the people I hung out with that also did 'em, they never told me they were addictive either I just remember all my fears and anxieties and all my doubts and my depression just went away when I took one of these things You know, doing them on the weekends went to doing them sometimes during the week went to doing them everyday And I remember the first time that I woke up, and I didn't have any or have any money And I started to get sick, and I felt like I had the flu, but I couldn't sleep

And I'm thinking something's wrong, so I Google it And I had symptoms of opiod withdrawal The same symptoms a heroin addict gets From that point on for like, the next seven years my life went all the way downhill chasing another pill You know, I lost my family, my friends, I became homeless, lost my jobs, went to jail

I tried to get clean a bunch, went to detoxes and rehabs No matter how bad I wanted to quit, I just couldn't Every single second all I could think about is getting another pill I woke up one day, and I was 26 years old I was sleeping in an abandoned house, had no family, no friends, no job, just got out of jail

And I decided to give it one more try to get clean Luckily, that time it worked out You know, everything I'd lost I did get back, plus some I have my family back I get to tour the country doing music

But the thing is, for seven years, I went through absolute hell I was given a second chance But a lot of people I know didn't get that chance I know about 250 people that have died from opiod overdoses Some of it heroin, some of it pills

If you're watching this video, and you think it's cool to pop pills, all your friends are doing it, it feels good, trust me when I tell you, you're not ready to lose everything Don't try it in the first place ♪ Evolve ♪ ♪ Evolve ♪
