To all the drug addicts out there who are trying to recover. Never mind what others think of you, their not perfect. People become what they expect themselves to become. Sometimes we may fall seven times as long as we get up eight. And in order to change our lives, we must first change our minds. Be a witness, not a judge. Focus on yourself, not others. Listen to your heart, not to the crowd. In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: IT GOES ON!!

Geez, by that reasoning we should stop eating food, since it only makes our bodies feel good for a short period of time. And we should stop drinking coffee and having sex. I don't know about you, but I like to eat. And when the effects of my food wear off, I'm going to eat again.

Drug addicts have a choice to make, they just choose drugs. I agree that some become hooked due to a surgery or actual pain but most I have seen with addictions are due to being cowards that are using them to escape reality. They put drugs over everything else because it's the easy way out. They typically lie about everything and have sex with whoever. Don't male excuses for them, they do that enough on their own.

Well, that is precisely on the subject guys. Food, sex, drugs, and other rewarding behaviors all trigger dopamine activation in the brain. The NIDA has some new research out that shows dopamine activation is closely tied with behaviors linked to survival, like eating, procreation, etc. Drugs, however, release dopamine at levels far greater than other behaviors. In other words, the brain starts to "rewire" itself to think that it needs these drugs to survive, possibly more than it needs food. I've been in recovery for several years, have researched addiction for the last 4 years, and have worked in 3 different counties to help fight the drug epidemic. I promise you I know what I'm talking about. I'm fully aware that drugs are "four real," as you say. I'm not trying to argue with anyone, just hoping to increase understanding. Instead of bickering about silly stuff like this, why don't we now turn our efforts toward making a dent in this problem??? I can connect you with agencies and resources who are already at work in our area if you'd like to get involved.

Before you write a post on this subject please read very carefully what it's trying to say. I wrote it trying to reach and/or help someone that may need so guidness. It's very hard for a drug addict to come clean especially when that's all the addict knows about life. Many people can say we have a choice and we choose drugs but it's not that simple. There are many many different reason why we choice this way of life and coming off is the hardest thing I have ever had to do and I fight with it every single day of my life. It has become the worse disease I have ever heard of and there is no cure.

you cant help someone that wont help themself. i agree, you dont realize its that bad until its too late. i also know people that chose this path. it was cool, they wanted to party and be free. i have no sympathy for drug addicts. they have destroyed my family.
