It started when I was 12 or 13, although luckily it didn’t have hold of me for too long. My big brother got me into it as is often the case. Him and all of his University mates were doing it and it seemed so cool at the time. How little did I know the social stigma that would later become attached to such a thing. I was the first person in my school to get hooked but soon everybody was doing it, from the school bully to the class nerd. I started out just using the bare basics, but quickly wanted more. I needed more variety to keep me interested and ended up spending all my money on exotic paraphernalia.
