Moral Monday’s Flash Fiction: A Downward Spiral #amwriting #fiction

Thanks to Nortina for hosting Moral Monday’s prompts. This week’s moral is: ” Say No to Drugs.”



She’d been to many parties, drinking until she went home and threw-up. The more alcohol she consumed, the more her body tolerated. She lived for the time when she was floating around, loving everyone and feeling happy. These days, she required an even greater high.

At a particular party, she watched two of her friends snort lines of cocaine off a coffee table.

“How much?” She asked, her two friends grinned.

“First lines on us.” 

Looking back she knew, they were words that forever altered the course of her life into a downward spiral of addiction.

    Four words that change everything. And I imagine there was never a free line again. Important depiction, Mandi!

    Scary thing about drugs — once your body gets used to it, you start climbing up to the harder drugs, those are the ones you can’t simple stop doing. Sometimes that high isn’t worth your life. Great writing!
