    Thank you for sharing? this. I means the world to me.

  • madmike1 says:

    That guy at the start…Is a tad scary and I feel could relapse, he still gets excited at the thought of drugs to a scary degree. To the point I think he might be thinking to himself “damn….I need to use again, that was fun” whenever? he is talking about it

  • jsmokey924js says:

    pills are awesome?

    woah.. what did the poor girl do wrong??

    (Cont’d) and understand why people commit suicide when they have chronic pain conditions. People like me get treated like addicts, get denied medications because we’re “too young” or “just trying to get a fix” or some other crap because we are at the mercy of doctors and the system. We’re prescribed pills for other conditions (guinea pigs).. Drugs should be legalized across the board. People? who abuse them will eventually OD but people who need them will be able to have a quality of life.

  • VideoSaySo says:

    (Cont’d) and their family/”friends” would convince them they had a problem. Those cases usually ended up as suicides…not attempts, but successful suicides. There’s a quote that hits home? with me because I’ve seen it “People in pain who commit suicide don’t want to end their lives, they are putting an end to their pain”. Now I find myself in pain from a hereditary condition that my spine and the discs are literally crumbling (DJD) and have gone through years of bullshit treatments (cont’d)

  • VideoSaySo says:

    So what happens when people go to rehab? They give them MORE drugs to take instead of the ones the people used to recreate on. I’ve? seen it over and over again (I used to work as an admin assistant in a mental health/substance abuse facility. Half the time the people would end up worse than when they came through the door…ALL of them were turned into “victims” by the facilitators within a month of starting treatment. The ones I felt bad for were people who were truly in intense pain (cont’d)

    Pillz are good?

  • Chuck Norris says:

    For example, I started smoking a few years back. (Sure it’s not meth or anything like that but it proves my point here) I don’t blame any ads or society or anything else other than myself when I made a bad decision to start smoking and I carry full responsibility for my actions. I also might have to face? some serious consequenses like lung cancer or heart failure because I made the choise and got addicted. Now that’s my fucking fault and no one should feel sorry for me. Now do you get my point?

  • Chuck Norris says:

    haha i always get to argue on youtube? about some bs. I mean sure you can help these people and bring something good into their lives, nothing wrong with that. I’m just saying that all drug addicts should take responsibility for their actions and stop playing the “victim card”. I heard some celebrity talking about his drug addiction on tv and he was talking like his own choises that led to this addiction were actually some sorta disease and that he had no control over what had happened. Total bs.

  • nikoE30 says:

    We shouldn’t feel sorry for someone who has taken drugs? Your wrong, we should feel sorry and feel the need to help them for they have made a mistake, we are all humans we are here to learn, let’s not be selfish and help each other, this is exactly whats wrong with mankind right now, we are selfish, we are “too good” so, they made a mistake? too bad, it was their choice,? i m living the good life. thats wrong and sad

  • TheFrigginAwesome says:

    lol?

  • Chuck Norris says:

    I just think that? we shouldn’t feel sorry for someone who has maken a clear voluntary choice and started consuming hard drugs like meth. The word “tarded” applies to people who haven’t done any research about the drugs that they’re taking. Not listening to at least some facts and without taking some time to think bout what your doing n’ just jumping head on to snort some shit sounds kinda stupid to me 🙂

  • Chuck Norris says:

    Drugs can? cause severe permanent negative effects and diseases like HIV, psychosis, instant death due to OD etc. or even cause the consumer to loose control of his behaviour and bite some homeless guy’s head off (go check that one out). We don’t necessarily have to blindly follow everything that has been told to us in this society, but you have to understand that it is YOUR responsibility when you do obviously stupid things like meth or heroin.
