I just met some heroine/cocaine/meth addicts the other day and they scared the **** out of me.


I want to understand this.


How did you help them and how has your/their life changed from it?

You don't help them, they help themselves. Isolation is usually a big wake up call, that's how my uncle kicked heroin. The entire family isolated him.

After reading AK's Scar Tissue and reading about John Fruciante's problems it seems like love is a good way to get out of it.

I could see how isolation would work, but If everyone in my life isolated me I would be like "**** you guys" and just get worse.

i helped my friend get over his pain killer addiction. at least i seriously hope i did. he was online one night at like 2 in the morning when i was doing some homework. he was in a really bad place and was about to attempt suicide. i told him to wait until i got to his house so that i could talk to him. i was at school 4 hours away but i stayed on the phone with him the whole time. i got there at about 6 in the morning and helped him calm down. i had him flush down the rest of the pills and stayed with him for the rest of the day. i only left after i was convinced that he would be alright at least for a little while because i had to get back to school. this was about a year ago and i can tell he is a different person. he laughs a lot more and is a lot more active in our group of friends. he tells me he is off and i am convinced that he is. it was a very tense few weeks though. i was really scared for him

I met one bloke who wanted to meet Kurt Cobain, was pure obcessed.
Me & my friends told him he was dead and the guy cried.
Then replied with that he's just sleeping...

That seriously freaked me out.

drugs sucks.
It's like being alcoholic, but it's a lot more dangerous, you can go to jail or even die.
I HAVE A SIG AND IT'S HUGE LOL

i started dating this girl last year, and in the process i found out she was addicted to coke. She would start shaking and **** if she didnt get her fix....sometimes even cut her self out of frustration. Things between us were going good and i started spending a lot of time with her and we talked about her problems, i became a good reason for her to quit and she eventually did.

I think being an alcoholic is just as bad. It ****s up your life just as bad as anything else.

Megan!!

Long time no see!

And oddly enough, my school was visited by a former drug addict today, who talked about the horrors of addiction. She seemed to have a very high confidence, performing a monologue (if "performing" is a good substitute for "butchering") in front of the class, but low confidence otherwise. She seemed like she would just join a group, adapt completely to their style to fit in, and face the consquences (like drugaddictions). Maybe that's how it starts for most addicts? I want to add that during the monologue I've never needed a drink so badly before.

Anyways, I can't say I've helped a drug addict all the way through. Not much other than helping them when I'm out (like if I see a guy in a ditch, I'll help him up and call an ambulance).
