: This thread in NO way advocates or condones the use of any
illegal substances. It is just a thought that I have been running
through my mind for some time now and I would be interested in the views of from fellow ATSers.
We all have known/known of someone in past decades to now that has been a drug user, stoner, addict etc, and people who have been addicted to being
'high' in itself..our society treats it as an illness, be it physically or mentally so. There are those who have taken the path of drug use in their
life who have ruined their lives because of substances and their all driving, consuming need for them, there are those who have lost absolutely
everything due to addictions they can not control, and many have not a clue as to why. I have been told for years that my addictive personality comes
from genetics as my Father and not my mother, has the same personality type. Ok genetics explains it in part, perhaps..but this is where my thoughts
have gone lately; What if people who are or have been addicted to some various drug in this life, become addicted and in need of 'mind alteration'
because it truly does feed their mind and being itself like water and food nourish our physical selves? and what if the need for a drug is caused by
the current energy frequencies we all live with around us, being psychologically and spiritually painful to these personality types mentioned?
I know it isnt exactly a novel idea, but it would be nice to hear other views and thoughts on the mental states of addiction and the need to use
mind altering substances that quite a large portion of our global populace use in one form or another..legal or illegal, socially accepted or not
socially accepted..to feel 'normal' and/or balanced within themselves. How could the situation of drug addiction better be handled if any of these
theories are at all correct? Because it really isnt being successfully dealt with in our present day cultures and social systems..
Thanks for reading!
