    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

    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.
