Fighting the Addiction

Have you ever felt your heart beat so fast, that it felt like it was coming out of your chest? If so, you may have found true love, but this is not a story of finding true loves kiss. What I have written for you today, is a true story about my addiction to Red Bull and how it all began.

This is a picture of my father, creator of the artificial heart and Red Bull. In 1993, my family moved 500 miles from Deutschland to Bosnia in order to escape governmental suppression to continue my fathers research. It was at this point in my life where I experienced what it meant to be poor and surrounded by poverty. It was also at this point in my life where my fathers evil schemes began to be unveiled.

A few days after my 8th birthday in 1995, my father had finally finished his research on his new energy drink product, Red Bull. It was the first time I had laid eyes on that beautiful blue and silver shinning can, and I can still remember how it called out to me. Against my fathers wishes and warnings that I would surely die from heart disease if I drank from the silver and blue can, I picked up the Red Bull and began to drink. Its powerful affects were almost immediate and I began to feel my heart beat faster, and faster with each and every passing moment. However, within a short span of time, I felt the urge to have another, and another after that. The addiction had begun.

Ten years had past since the beginning of my secret addiction, and my father was soon to let me in on a secret plan that the world would soon need him. He told me that this Red Bull was slowly killing the hearts of all his consumers and that this new artificial heart he had created would be their only chance to survive! Disgusted at this revelation, I punched him in the face with some mace and fled the country to Amerika, where I live to this day coping with my addiction problems...
