Once you start taking it, there’s something they call Cortactin within one month you become addicted, without it you can’t survive, your social life, physical life ceases, you can’t even travel, for a long time I never travelled or attended funerals, I will have Cortactin which will give me stomach cramps when I run out of stock.

. I have worn the best suits made by Italian tailors but now I’m being humiliated because of drugs,’ he advised.He called on society not to shun drug addicts but to draw them closer and reform them to be better persons again adding that he attempted suicide twice because he couldn’t stand the humiliation.
