Re: I'm a drug addict. I'm clean. Ask me any question.
Why can't you just say "I'll come back to it later". Fucking dropkicks like you give me the shits because you can't practice restraint. Enjoy, but don't over indulge. Now you going to sit here and tell the joys of being a stable individual. Fuck off. Man must be bigger than the substance. Your failings are yours alone. Don't try selling your bullshit to me sunshine. You are too weak to delve into the underworld. You should never have been there in the first place.
 Quoting: Von_Boner 320079


perhaps. but i'm not going to fuck off.
 Quoting: Addicto 22164646


I meant the statement, not you. Just try to keep it to yourself. People may smile and congratulate, but in their subconcious, you planted a seed of "this guy's a drug fiend". Do not let it define your life, just move on. It was fun while it lasted and you learnt valuable lessons. Use those lessons. Saying what you did in the title still connects you with that culture and you will be judged by those outside of the culture.

If you fear the substance is bigger than you, that you do not have the strength to be it's master. Avoid. Some things are too good, I know. But be fucked if I let a substance rule me. I rule it.
 Quoting: Von_Boner 320079


Well when your fucked up on that substance, its ruling you at the present time. Dumass

Re: I'm a drug addict. I'm clean. Ask me any question.
I've posted here before about the ins and outs and joys and downfalls of substance abuse and alcoholism. Talking about my past sans censorship helps me maintain a state of sobriety. Fire away.
 Quoting: Addicto 22164646


I have a question. My son is 25 years old and has had problems with drug and alcohol addiction since he was 18. I raised 4 boys in a drug and alcohol free home. I was a single mother and I was also a Police Officer while I was raising them. I have never suffered addiction problems so it is so hard for me to understand it, then being a Police Officer just made me sick to have to deal with drunks and drug addicts it kinda shuts off any empathy I might have for them, or for my son. So my question to you is: How do I get help for someone I love more dearly than my own life? I have tried everything. I have even done the tough love bit, and he is not allowed to be in my house alone because he steals anything he can get his hands on. He lies, steals and goes to jail on a regular basis. I want so badly to help him I just don't know how. So if you can give me any idea's I would be so thankful. I would like to say though, I am proud of you for staying sober, I wish you a long and clear headed life. Every day that you wake up sober you should start your day with a smile and be proud of yourself for coming full circle.

What's your thoughts on smoking pot?
 Quoting: BRIEF


pot was a fantastic addition to my life when i first began using it. it became a personified entity in my life...it became a close friend. i have seen only a handful of people, and their certainly are some, that can use it responsibly....responsibly being that they do not progress on to harder drugs and that it doesn't consume their lives. i became unsatisfied with pot because i began craving a more intense high from any number of things. i was unable to use it as it should be used, if used at all. without a doubt, however, if pot is going to be compared to other drugs, it is far far far safer than alcohol. i don't crave mary jane and never will. it is unsatisfying, as i've delved into the much harsher side of substance abuse.

to each his own. i can't smoke pot successfully, and 99 percent of people that do can't smoke it successfully. kudos to you if you can. if you are capable of limiting yourself to an occasional toke, it's a wonderful little plant. very unlikely that you or anyone else can, though...statistically.

ummm....for me....the drugs and alcohol just had to run their course with me. every addict hits a different bottom. note that in my case, i had had enough. i voluntarily checked myself into rehab. someone forcing me to go would've accomplished nothing.

a friend of mine who was a doctor and knew about the pitfalls and medical aspect of addiction told me at one point in a brief statement, and without any judgement whatsoever....."hey, man, i don't know exactly what level your drug use is at...but if you ever want help, call me and i'll be there in 30 minutes. we'll get you some help and you can start to live again."

those words stuck constantly for several weeks. i called him up right before the beginning of a binge and told him i'd be in a certain room at a certain hotel, and if he'd pick me up at a certain time 3 days later, i would accept his help. he responded with "absolutely."

he was true to his word, showed up on time, and i was in a treatment center a few hours later. i was so intensely addicted, physically, emotionally and spiritually, that i had to "manufacture" my own way into rehab. i knew, for instance, that the only time my brain functioned with remorse, shame and the desire for help was at the end of a multi-day binge. there was a brief window of crashing that lasted perhaps one or who hours, and i knew i would have to take advantage of that if i wanted to live. something inside my soul didn't want to die. i bought my drugs, checked into a hotel, made the phone call to my friend and hit my binge. i arranged help for myself ahead of time. does that help at all?

just tell your son without judgement that you will be there to help him when he asks for it. when the call does come, drop everything and get there. have a treatment facility prearranged.

If you don't have any money, where to you go to get help with drugs?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 6246833


there are numerous drug treatment programs that will take you as you are. you can work out an affordable payment plan. that's what i did. i paid nothing going in. some insurance will pay. some won't. mine didn't. rehab clinics, keep in mind, are businesses. it's in their best interest to admit you, treat you, and get you in debt. the debt i've taken on to get clean saved my life. make some phone calls. once you get clean, all the stigma goes away. i'm so grateful to be clean and alive, that the shame from what got me to rehab evaporated shortly after.
 Quoting: addicto 22164646


Thanks. Like I said, though, I've got no money and no way to pay back. I was hoping that there were some kind of state programs.

yes...make some phone calls, man. of course there are state funded programs. you can get state funding through private treatment facilities. just make phone calls and get help. go get high if you need to, then get back on the computer and find some numbers. start living.

yea...rehab only detoxes your body and gives you the chance of living clean. it, if you go through the detox process, gives you the choice of using or not.
