This is a subject I know about first hand unfortunately, I was a junkie for probably 5 years or more, didn't get really bad until the last 2. I started when I was 18 just once in a while then by the time I'm 25 I'm dropping out of school and not even lying to my self about being a junkie, living with another junkie and living in a shitty trailer, I finally was able to force my self to move out of that bad situation but it was too late. I developed a blood infection and it spread to my heart. I had to have 2 surgeries in a row on my valve and now I'll be on blood thinners for life and other meds for life. Opiodies are absolutly the most addictive drugs out there and cravings last well past the point of being clean. I havent used in 3 years now and never will again but I still get thoughts running through my mind the rush of putting a needle in my arm makes me involuntarily excited, followed by grim determination not to die. Any way sorry about the blog.
Addiction is labeled as a disease and I'm not sure I agree, its more like a mental condition, if you consider depression a disease then I guess addiction is.
My area Herion is a rarity and super expensive but pills are all around, Fat lazy whites and indians on medicare and disability get them and sell them to make money, they may or may not be addicted, there were mexicans but its not as rampant now that the oil boom has left but still bad.
Probably the worst part of it is people dont know how bad of a drug it is, hey if a Dr is giving it out it must be ok right? Hell Drs were telling people Oxy wasnt addictive for the longest time.
All that does is slow the spread of HIV and give users an option other then stealing and whoring.
There are 2 reasons weed is a "gateway drug" First is because the people selling weed either sell the pills or know someone who does. 2nd is because in school they taught you that all drugs were bad except alcohol) and weed was just as bad as the rest. So when these kids grow up to be teens and young adults they smoke weed as say "hey they lied about how bad this is, the rest of the drugs are probably fine too" So they experiment with everything.
This. It starts slow. First you tell yourself 'ill never shoot up' then its 'well i just want to try it once' soon its like 'who cares if i shoot up? as least im not stealing/raping/murdering like a REAL ADDICT' then one day you wake up and realise your a junkie and just dgaf.
Fuck that, addicts can never take it again, their opiod receptors are shot, but normal people take them responsibly all the time and dont get addicted. People are born addicts, not all get addicted.
Bread and circuses. They are cheap and we have disposable income. All the rappers do it! and shitty single/shitty parents.
Try Kratom, it helped me with my opiod urges, and works for pain, albeit it is much weaker and there is very little 'high' Of course the DEA wants to ban it because it is just a tree leaf, dont know how long it will be legal. Tastes like shit though
