Vice cop by day, meth addict by night

Image

 

BY day rookie cop Allison Moore conducted investigations into big-time meth dealers and partnered up with the DEA, flying on helicopters looking for illegal drug activity. But nobody knew that she had a secret — she was a meth addict herself.

Hawaiian-based Moore’s amazing memoir, “Shards,” comes out this month.

She recalls: “My co-workers began to comment on my obvious weight loss.

“In the time I’d known them, I’d lost about 20 pounds from my 5-foot-9 frame, and, in spite of my efforts, I was getting the gaunt “meth face.” But nobody asked me if I was using.

“I wasn’t a picker and didn’t get sores or lose my teeth like some meth users.

“About a year into my addiction, a co-worker of mine was asking me about my appearance. ‘Do you have cancer or something?’ he asked, half-joking.

“But, on the spot, I realised he’d just given me the perfect excuse. ‘Yes,’ I said, looking him in the eye. ‘I have ovarian cancer. That’s why I look like this.’

“As soon as I said it, I knew my life was over. I’d stepped over a line and I knew I wouldn’t be able to go back. But now I was free to disappear — under the guise of getting treatment — to get high.”

    I believe everything said made a bunch of sense. But, consider this, what
    if you added a little information? I ain’t saying your information is not good,
    however what if you added a headline to possibly get folk’s attention? I mean Vice cop
    by day, meth addict by night | MANHATTAN NEWS is kinda plain. You could peek
    at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create article
    titles to get viewers to open the links. You might add a video or a
    related pic or two to get people interested about what you’ve written.
    In my opinion, it would make your posts a little livelier.
