My mother died of a heroin overdose at the ripe old age of 36!
I'm sorry to hear that, ..
but did you think of the reason why drug addicts exist? ..
-its a lucrative business (for government and street dealers alike)
-it causes people to need pharmaceutical drugs, to ween off of..
-it keeps the war on drugs going.
-it creates unstable families..
-it keeps the war on oil going .. (war on oil? lol)
-it keeps the war of terror going.. (go borat!)
I am truly sorry that people in-charge wanted to take advantage of you family.
But the truth is.. with drugs legal, there will be more people who understand (especially) heroin and its interaction with our brain and cells.. the
way it produces peptides etc.. etc...
It's a #e load easier to find help for something when you don't feel like a criminal to begin with for doing it..
not to mention people won't be 'hiding' because they would feel quite a bit more accepted..
My mother is an alcoholic (drinking, no lie, a 60oz straight between herself and her boyfriend everyday.. give or take a mickey or two) so I totally
understand addiction and its horrible effects on family.
but the REASONS stand out..
Alcoholics exist because its advantageous to alcohol producing factories
they exist because of treatment centers and REHAB (which is the WORST thing EVER!) Especially religious REHAB centers, that pervert GOD and CHRIST to
People are addicted because theres no one there to help them dream better, because they are surrounded by turkeys and you can't fly with eagles if
you surround yourself with turkeys..
You know the only thing thats worked AT ALL in my whole life of trying to get thru to my mother? ... ACCEPTANCE AND UNDERSTANDING... because if my
mother (who obviously doesn't) accept or understand herself, can't do it for herself.. someone has to be an example to show that it is possible to
LOVE such a twisted human mind.
You have to truly understand addiction... people are addicted because they don't love themselves.. especially people who went to war.. (like my
grandfather) who also died because of alcoholism who just couldn't deal with the actions he carried out on 'other humans' .. People cannot deal
with themselves so they pollute themselves.
People are missing something.. People are craving comfort and acceptance.
it just so happens that most drug users will accept and understand other drug users..
If you were to look at the drugs that are legal and the ones that aren't you'll understand a bit more.. if you look at it practically..
Alcohol - causes violence, bad decision making
Cigarettes/Cigars - almost useless, an excuse to be angry (when u don't have it), takes up a lot of energy and time.
Pharmaceuticals - creates foreign peptides, replaces no-longer generated peptides, generates billions of dollars... to create / legal addictions
and the illegal drugs.
xtc - bad for you? .... affects seretonin etc.. (don't anti-depressants) I understand the mechanism is different..
coc aine - bad for you? affects seretonin and dopamine (don't phramaceuticals?) I understand the mechanism is different.
heroin - bad for you? opiates are extracted FOR phrama companies. chemicals extracted etc...
okay so really whats the big deal with drugs? ... CONTROL.
