IamA former prison inmate currently struggling to stay clean AMA!
I'll give a brief summary though. I was a 17/18 year old kid addicted to Oxycontin. I started selling Marijuana, cocaine, and Oxy through the mail was was eventually caught. I was originally sentenced to 6 months in county jail with 5 years of probation. I eventually violated probation by failing a drug test and was given 2 years in prison (ridiculous). I want this AMA to be more about prison as I think that’s what most people want to hear about. However I will answer other questions whether it be about my substance abuse or how I got in trouble.
I did time in Michigan, the prison system is called MDOC (you will probably see this referenced)

I am currently staying in a crack motel struggling to stay clean. I should start college soon (late starting classes). I have hope for the future. To be honest... I wanted to get high today but when I read all the positive feedback about my post over in the books subreddit it made my day and I stayed sober. Writings is therapeutic for me. Most people are interested in drugs and gangs in prison, I'll answer any question though.
WARNING! Prison is an extremely racial environment. If you're one of those people that can't handle the mention of race this might not be for you. I am not racist. Anyone that thinks the white race is anything special needs only to view the white inmate population.
Edit: oh my god, so many replies and I gotta go to work. I’ll answer as many as I can when I get home
Edit 2: I had hit my dealer up Friday night, he responded today. I told him to cancel my order ;) thank you guys for the support.
Edit 3: my coworker figured out a way to both delete and block the number so he can’t call me and I can’t call him as I don’t have the number memorized. I almost started crying and hugged the shit out of my Palestinian savior!
EDIT 4 PLEASE ANSWER THIS, NEW READERS! I need ideas on how to update you guys after this thread fades away? Is there anyway I can use reddit? Obviously a. Blog would be the best but it would not have the reader base. I might go to jail soon...
Edit: where can I post my whole story and would anyone like to read my dopefiend journals? Here’s an excerpt
I originally wanted a $60 of heroin and $20 of crack. The boss overpaid me by about $40 so I decided to get more. Unfortunately he only had $60 worth of heroin on him, some drug dealer. He offered a huge rock of crack if I spent an extra $20 so I went ahead and spent the $100 like a stupid addict. I had just told them I don’t even like more than $20 worth of crack and almost never buy more than that. Smooth insisted I “smoke the crack, man, don’t shoot it” and went on a long tangent about how I needed to start “loving life” and once again mentions when Brian shoved ice cubes down my pants. Finally he hands over the drugs.
