Re: Getting high
Oh boy! People getting defensive about my drug addict comments! Oh boy!
I don't give a damn if you're a drug addict or not. I asked if you were, but make no mistake: whether you are or not does not affect me. I really don't care, but was merely making conversation.
My father died an alcoholic. He would binge drink all throughout my life. He did pot, later turned to some crack, and eventually got off of it for a few years before turning back down the path of alcoholism. My dad had alcohol the day he died; an addiction beyond belief considering alcohol is the only thing that ruined his life.
My sister has been a drug addict since the age of 17 or so. A complete disgrace to me. I hate everything about her. Cocaine, pills; nothing harder than that but like that's not hard enough. She has a son, almost 6 (next month). She hasn't changed her life for him any. Still a pill popping, alcohol-loving loser.
How many successful drug addicts outside of music and television do you know? They almost don't exist. It consumes and ruins their lives.
If you don't fit in this category then great. But as I said, I don't care, but don't try to defend drugs because they ruin more lives than anything else. (I'd consider alcohol to be one of the worst drugs; easily accessible and very addicting.)
Also, I've tried marijuana and it affected me differently. I didn't like it; my thoughts wondered and I didn't like that. Same with pills: not a fan, especially when it had made me make questionable decisions. The pills were prescribed for pain; I ended up not continuing to take them. Oh, and they were stolen from me by someone. Guess who?
