Are these the ‘friends’ you really need?

So, you are a drug addict. You are a true loser. You are used to being called a ‘junkie’ because that is what you are. In hock up to your eyeballs to feed the wretched urge to experience another ‘high’. You have probably thieved or hocked everything you can lay your trembling hands on, from relatives, friends; just to stay abreast of the heroin squeeze, or the cocaine ‘hit’, or even the Fentanyl slug-in-the-guts. You just don’t care, as long as you get enough together for another fix, or bag, or whatever term you use to explain the slow suicide route you are travelling.

But, all is not lost. A group of really rich do-gooders are thinking about you, and have decided that, from now on, you ain’t a ‘junkie’ any more: you are instead  a person who uses drugs’ or ‘a person with substance use disorder’. In truth, you have just discovered you have been ‘discriminated against’ for all these years!

 

I bet you feel really relieved about that!!!!!!

    Drug addiction isn’t a joke. It changes your brain chemistry, massively damaging the demand and craving centres. Pleasure, pain, nothing matters beyond the drug.

    Unless you’ve experienced that misery and the confusion and support needed to get someone off drugs scorning the problem is absurd.

      Indeed, the sadness and destruction of family life, friends, relations, jobs, etc. caused by addictions is truly appalling. But in WW2, especially during D-day, all medics carried syringes of morphine to alleviate the suffering of the wounded, with almost all those who recovered from their dreadful injuries not becoming addicts. So use & misuse should be factored into the debate.

    Lefty PC SJWs can feck off.

    A fact is truth. Druggies are junkies, alcoholics are alchies, fat are ugly over-eaters, obese are disgustingly ugly over-eaters, disabled are handicapped…

    How much taxpayer money – above Gift-Aid – is May & her Gov’t giving this snowflake quango/charity?

      Pcar, I don’t know why WPress or anti-spam is doing this but I just found this in the bin [not spam] and have not a clue why. You’re not on any bad list. You’d tried three times as well. Sorry.

    War on Drugs, eh? They need to do it as a real war. Drug use can only be stopped by refusing to treat with anything other than confined cold-turkey. And even that treatment paid-for by the druggie. Room and board, guards and venue, paid for by the ‘guests’. Overdosed and comatose druggies should be revived with the anti-narco shots but then confined and given a bill for the ambulance and the drug as well as the confinement.

    Drug sellers should be incarcerated in solitary for one month and then shot.

    Watch the problem disappear in a year.
