“I finally understood,” Jake says, as viewers watch videos of his younger self dance across the screen, “why people were doing things to make themselves feel different… once I got a taste for it, I tell ya—it was off to the races!”
“I remember thinking to myself, “This is what I want to do. Probably for the rest of my life.”
Jake, like so many others, didn’t see any reason to quit—or even any way to quit. It was, after all, a way of life for him. His story is, sadly, not unique. Teens and young adults all over the world, and particularly in America, are trying out the various ways in which they can alter their reality—where they can feel something other than the aspects of their own lives.
“Every time I did,” Jake says softly, “it was oblivion.”
