History Cocaine - Bad Influence!
History "Patent Name: Garrett Toffey"

Started smoking at seventeen to stroke!

My best friend John, 36 years, 2003, north NJ, 1967, down town, music, and started smoking when he was 15 years old. I joined him when I was 17, in the summertime, just hanging out. In the beginning I smoked only Marlboro Lights and only one or two cigarettes a day. My older brother Kyle smoked as a teenager, too, but he left the family when he was 22 on May 19, 1974.

I tried to quit smoking three times. The first time, I went two months without a cigarette. Two more times, I managed to quit, but I always went back to cigarettes, until I had the stroke.

Story of marijuana, eighteen to stroke!

In 1972, at age 18, I smoked marijuana for the first time with my brother Kyle. It was summer in Tenafly, NJ, and up in the attic, Kyle offered me my first joint. I smoked with him but didn't no-high.

However, next day in a attic, Kyle gave me more pot and this time I got high and I liked it! My friends and I joined Kyle in smoking pot most weekends to stroke, 34 years!

A few years later, 1976, I moved to west Philadelphia and smoked more pot with my new friend.

Cocaine, 2000 to stroke!

In fall of 1999, I started hanging out with my old friend after my brother Bill met him by coincidence on a SEPTA, 15th Street Station, Market Street, Market-Frankford Line. Friend gave Bill his business card and I got back in touch with him. Friends was a bad influence and I started smoking pot again and even doing cocaine with him.

In college at East North Carolina University, I had tried coke 4 or 5 times. After that I didn't touch coke. But about spring, 2000, new home, Pennsauken, NJ and when I started hanging out with my old friends, south east P.A. But, I started doing coke regularly, many weekends.

The last time I did cocaine was 1 pm on July 3rd, 2006, 1:30 pm, backyard, black back bag in motorcycle, but stroke. Half an hour later I almost died.

(Lisa, marriage, 2000 to 2006, April, but Lisa, no Smoke, no Pot and no Cocaine!)

On the afternoon of July 3rd, 2006, I was smoking pot and did a line of cocaine around 1pm. At 1:30, I collapsed from a massive stroke.
