You obviously don't understand the mindset of a junkie. If they have no problem shooting themselves up, they aren't going to have a problem sharing drugs with a fellow junkie. It's a disease.

I equated no such thing. Where did I ever make reference about a NON alcoholic or NON drug user?

Which is why people who are trying to stay clean and sober have to give up those friends/relatives because you'll just get sucked right back into drug use.

You made the analogy to somehowplace fault on the one providing the drugs/booze. Only a fool would hold one alcoholic responsible for another drinking. I assumed you were not a fool and therefore equating to a non-alchy providing drinks to an alchy. I won't make the assumption that you're not a fool anymore.

Let me respond to this one.
The reason you have been jumped on is that your opinions are stated in inflammatory and deliberately provocative ways; your posts are belligerent and you are quick to put labels on people that, while they may be accurate, have nothing to do with the subject at hand and which you clearly use in a pejorative way.
For example,you have crossed boundaries, even for Topix discussions, and even though the other party backed down, you did not. So that there is no misunderstanding I am talking about you and Mimi. You have therefore primed the group to expect a type of response from you, to strike back when you make it.
Think of it this way. You say "Bite me" and the group responds, "Chomp".
If you didn't expect that, then you are out of awareness of how your posts are perceived -- which I doubt-- and/or you continue the same way regardless. If you have been surprised by this up to now,learn it for the future.
If you want to be treated better, consider the style in which you express your opinions and your willingness to consider that other people have different opinions without flaming or tossing stereotype labels on them for it.
Here's another clue: insistence on literal accuracy ( show me where I said that, etc) smacks of 3rd grade school yard stuff. You are being treated accordingly. You don't like it? Change.
Try responding to substance instead of barbs. After a while, the barbs look juvenile all on their own without any help from you.
The substance is all yours.I ,for one, wouldn't have that part of you any other way, but Dog, you are buying your own grief here.

Exactly.

I'm also not one of these people who blame drug dealers or junkie friends when someone ODs. If there is to be blame, and really I don't even think blame is the appropriate term, it should be on the person who voluntarily used the drugs that killed them.

It's called personal accountability. Given how right-wing edog is, I'm surprised he fails to appreciate this. I think he must be a closet liberal that is self-hating, which is why he bashes them ... its the same dynamic with a lot of closet gays...

I feel the same way about drunk driving: IF four frends go out and get drunk together every weekend, and each weekend they take turns being the driver (not sober driver), and there's a crash, I don't think you should get to sue the driver -- that could have been YOU, and when the night started, you knew you'd all be drinking and one of you would be driving. You signed up for that when the night started.

I agree. BUT they could sue you so if you are driving you better stay sober or have money in your pocket for a cab or hotel room nearby (or some kind of back-up plan).

I agree with that too.

There was a newsman in Chicago who died on a snowmobile trip with his buddy who was driving the snowmobile in Wisconsin or the UP and his buddy was being charged, but the wife did not want him to be. Her husband knew they had been drinking, he got on the snowmobile anyway, and assumed the risk.

Here you are preety much implying "non-alcoholic". Either way, addict or not, he took the lethal dose. No one forced him. It's not insensitive. It's a fact.

Absolutely. And if you injure or kill a friend while you're driving, that firend may not sue you... but his parents or insurance company will, to recoup what they've lost on your medical expenses.

i hadn't heard about the widow not wanting the charges filed, but i'm betting that it's the state that has the final say... the friend was snowmobiling drunk, and if hte state law says "no operating a motor vehcile, snowmobile, ATV, boat or any similar device while under the influence", tehn teh widow has no say in it... filing civil suits or not is entirely in her court, though.(not sure if hte pun is fully intended or not...)

The family of the deceased or injured person often does have a lot of say in how the guilty person is charged and even his sentencing.

If I give a drink to an alcoholic, I am just as responsible for his drinking. If I give drugs to a junkie, I am responsible for contributing to his problem. There is even a push by some lawmakers, and may even be on the books in places, about holding doctors accountable for legally prescribing drugs to people who obviously have a problem and end up dying.

I agree with such a law. Something must be done about this epidemic of prescription drug abuse.
