Name: 'Ellie'
Age: 21
Year of the Fix: 2017
Location: Aldershot, Hampshire
Campaign: To show how drug use can be a cry for help

I started smoking weed when I was about 15. My mum and dad had split up and my Grandma had died. I was in a really bad place, I didn’t understand what I was feeling and I was suppressing it with drugs. 

 

As I got older I found the weed wasn’t working anymore, so I moved on to things like mephedrone. It got to a point where I was taking drugs every day.

 

I've made a film with Fixers and I hope it makes people aware of what the effects of taking drugs will be and give them some insight into what can happen.

 

If you carry on eventually you will lose everything and end up with nothing.
