I am a convicted felon. 3 years ago I posted an AMA: I am a former drug mule. Here I am 3 years later now as a convict.
Link to my first thread:
I ended up being arrested by federal authorities for my crimes. I knew they were coming and when they finally arrested me I felt like a huge weight was lifted off my shoulders. I spent time in federal prison and here I am today ready to share my experiences.
Edit 1: The main reason I'm doing this is because I want to dissuade people from getting involved in this lifestyle. When I logged into my account after 3 years I had a lot of messages from my previous AMA asking me how to get involved in this line of business. I may have glamorized this line of business a little in my previous AMA and I apologize. I was young and stupid. It wasn't worth it.
I lost everything when I went to prison. I was shunned by my extended family, my friends abandoned me, the woman I loved left me and worst of all, my dog died. My dog dying is what really hurt. While I was rotting away in a small, filthy prison cell everyone else was moving on with their lives. Calling my mom on Christmas and hearing her crying because she missed me will always be on my mind.
I started trafficking because my mother was dying and I needed the money to pay for her hospital bills. Eventually I became so corrupted with money that I started getting not violent, but aggressive. I was always looking to start a bar fight or any kind of conflict.
Only my parents and best friend stuck by me in all of this. My best friend sent me legal work pertinent to my case and even sent me money on occasion. I will always be grateful to him.
When I was trafficking, making money everyone wanted to be my friend. But when I tried calling my boys from prison they wouldn't answer and that's when I realized, they were only my boys when I was paying the bar tab.
My mother is alive and well today, I don't regret my actions because the money I made paid for her treatment, but I do wish things could've been different. She was depressed when I went to prison, but I'd rather her be depressed than dead.
Edit 2: Thanks for all the support and advice my dudes. I will stop answering questions at this time. I will try my best to have that book ready by next year. Till then.
