A 17-year-old girl has shared her disheartening story about how she has to struggle to take care of her 2-year-old son and her addiction to the use of tramadol. The girl who is known as Atswei was interviewed by Ghone Tv and she’s seeking help, so she can take care of her son and also stop abusing Tramadol and other hard substances she’s addicted to.
Narrating her story to Ghone, the 17 year old girl disclosed that she got pregnant at the age of 17 and the boy responsible impregnated another friend of hers, so her father advised her to ignore him and focus on taking care of her son but it’s become a difficult task for her as she’s heavily addicted to Tramadol.
Atswei who has no job says, sometimes she has to sleep with other men for money when her boyfriend fights with her and refuses to give her money. According to her, she then spends some of the money she makes from the prostitution business to buy food for her son and then use the rest to also buy tramadol and other hard drugs for herself..
Atswei needs help as according to her, the tramadol renders her ineffective and makes her unable to get a job. She told Ghone News that, she spends between Ghc10-30 a day in buying food and hard drugs like Marijuana.
Atswei dreams of becoming a hairdresser but this dream would become impossible if she does stop abusing Tramadol and all those other drugs she uses. She’s appealing to the public to help her get a job and for someone to take care of her child, so she could stop using the tramadol and other drugs.
