The enviroment that you live in is no excusr for YOU ruining your life. You make the decision to put a joint in your mouth, sniff a drug up your nose or put any other dangerous addictive drug in your body. You did it. you can't blame it on your friends or family. Of your friends are using or dealing drugs then WHY are you friends with them in the first place?! You made the decision to hand aroung those kind of people. You did it!
I have read on this forum about how the young people are getting on drugs because of everyone else doing the drugs.
I say that's a crock of bull. I don't want to hear the excuse that someone didn't have a chance at life because of having bad parents. Noone can make you do anything that you don't want to do. If you want a good future and happy life then don't let others talk you into doing the things that ruined their life.
Living in Mtn.City didn't cause drug addicts to become drug addicts! The caused it. They took that first puff, they took that first sniff, they stuck a needle in their arm for the first time and after they did it the first time they did it again and again and noew they're addicted. Who caused it? They did it themselves. Noone else can be blamed. You can't blame it on the people that live in the same town as you do. If someone wants a better life than what they were raised in they can have it.
Your friends can't make you do anything that you don't want to do. You shouldn't even have friends that are on drugs! Choose your friends wisely. Hang around people that have ambition in life. Stop blaming others because you do drugs. You made the decision to get yourself in that mess and if you want your messed up life cleaned up then you have to clean it up and don't blame others.

So true! I get so sick of people blaming others for their evilness! You're only one in a hundred that is stating the truth about addiction! Lack of good morals also leads to more evil works!

Show me your friends, I'll show you your future.

You pick your friends, don't let them pick you.

It's better to be hated for what you are than loved for what your not.

Nah, we get high cause it is fun. Some people just let addiction run their lives, they want an excuse to not be productive. I get high when I can afford to and all my other expenses are paid. I do the drugs, the drugs don't do me. Hey, say whatcha want about it but that's the root of it. Doing pot or meth is no different than smoking a cig. Sometimes you gotta buy that tank of gas, or that light bill, and then the rest comes later. Not everyone sees it that way though!

Hmm,keep using & see where you end up.Your health is at risk please stop the occasional use.No meth is not like a cigarette,it is foolish to think so.

I disgree. Just because a child was raised with no morals doesn't mean that they can't do better. I was raised by my grandmother and we were poor.
I went hungry a lot. The lunch I ate at school was the best meals I ate.
I didn't have nice clothes. Sometimes they wasn't clean. My grandmother was old fashioned and grew up without a bath tub and didn't think people needed to take a shower everyday. We had a shower but I would have to sneek a take a quick shower because she would beat on the bathroom door yelling for me to turn the water off. And my father stayed so drunk that he couldn't keep a job. My mother left me and my brother for a man that didn't want us. You can't tell me anything about having a tough life. When i turned 18 I went to work and I never got addicted to drug and alcohol just because all I saw out of my dad was drinking and not only did he drink he was violent.
I didn't abuse my child, I didn't become a drunk, I keep my home clean and clothes and body clean. My home is clean and neat. But that's not what I greww up in. I wanted better. I hated the way I had to live when I waa a child and when I got out I did better than my parents did. You make the decision to do drugs yourself! You make the decision to be a drunk yourself! Don't blame other people for your mistakes. Unless someone forced you to do drugs and you became addicted because someone held you down and forced a needle full of heroin into your arm or shoved pills down your throat then you did it willfully! Stop blaming others. The only way to pick up and move on and have a better life is to own up to your mistakes and make the decision to do better. I know peer pressure is hard on teenagers. But when you become an adult no excuse for peer pressure. You should be mature enough to get away from the kind of people that do drugs. Don't go around them. Don't have friends that do drugs and stay in trouble with the law.
You decide the kind of people that you want to associate with. If you decide to hang around with the drug addicts and drunks and no ambition no job kind of people then that's your fault. If I drive to the liquor store and by a 5th of liquor and get out drinking and driving and go to jail for DUI, who's fault is it? My fathers? NO! It is MY fault. I'm an adult. I make my own decisions. I can't and will not blame others if that happened, of course I won't be out getting a DUI. I want better. I don't want to go to jail. I don't want to lose my drivers license because of driving while drinking. Adults have noone to blame but theirselves for drug and alcohol use and going to jail because of it.

There are lots of fsctors in addiction. peer pressure is a big factor it happens to the best of us literally . surgeons. Doctors nurses pilots teachers hint hint lots of your teachers. So don't think for one moment that addiction is limited to the under achiever or people with addicted parents who by some miracle made it in life and became one of thoes doctors who later in life becomes an addict herself. you see there are just so many factors. another example a college. student who is u.under so much pressure by their strict parents they don't know how they are going to stay awake and study or finish that paper and then here comes his roommate. With a bag of coke snd says hey man all ut takes us a little of this and you can stay yip for ever then bam it smaks him in the face!

The only thing that you close minded people aren't seeing is that the girl isn't blaming mountain city for her drug use just saying its a really bad place.i lived there i know. I didn't become a meth head but was completely surrounded by them i lived in mountain site apartments.my neighbor whom i shared a yard stepped on a dirty needle barefoot. I didn't choose to live there i had to and by mistake i thought bring right next to the county police station would be a safe place to raise my children. Little did i know those apartments are full of meth heads and cooks.almost once a week meth lab trash was found behind our apartments.its pretty sad that i had to check my little tiny yard for needlesbefore i could let my 2 year old out to play. so i got the fuck out of there it doesn't all ways matter what kind of person you are sometimes you will still be right in the mix of shit and not be a part of it. I still worry about my neighbor and her 2 youmgins. we had worry meth explosions outside of our apartments and our children breathing those chemicals in. Which brings me to another point someone mentioned involuntary addiction how about those people who cook with their kids I'm the house.the kids are breathing that shit in and becoming addicted not on their own account but because if their irresponsible parents so sometimes its not always up to us
i agree with my sister mountain city is no good for anybody. I moved there after my uncle died in Maine so i could be with my little cousins. The only good thing that came out of it is my 2 beautiful children.and i can proudly say i got them as far away from mountain city as i could one of my cousins moved to Maryland now there I'd only one more if us to go Steven get the hell out of there while you still can buddy.

Excuses! There you go blaming it on a roommate or strict parents. I have had a rough life. Other people can you problems in life. Life isn't easy and take it from me, other people can that are cruel and have no morals can cause a lot of problems for you but you can't blmae those people for YOU turning to drugs. Until people stop blaming others they will never really have a grip on life. You can't let other people drag you down.
And any doctor that's gets addicted to drug knows better! A doctor knows the danger of addiction to cocaine and all street drugs! There is no excuse. I could have did drugs, I could still do drugs. But I don't want to. How is drug addiction going to solve my problems?? It's not! It's only going to make life harder. Sure it might feel good while I'm high, but I have to come down off of that high and then more more and more and if I didn't have it a would go into DT's. No thanks! People need to think of the bad side of drug use instead of thinking about how good the high feels for what, 1 hr or 2 hrs. No thanks.
I'm happy. I don't want a drug that's going to cause me to spend every dollar I have just to stay high. People that are addicted to drugs don't have a nice home, car, clothes and they're on food stamps because they spend every dime they can get their hands on on the drug that their addicted to.

O and how about people who are really sick or have had surgery and oopsaddicted to prescription pain pills like must doctors and nurses mymother that drives a Lexus and bud get clothes from top designers o and has a nice 8 bedroom house was addicted to prescription poison pills after having 2 major back surgeries from lifting heavy patients now what was her excuse? Sometimes its beyond your control did you know you have physical withdrawal symptoms from prolonged use of prescription pain medication like when you are recovering from surgery? And did you know some doctors aren't smart enough to ween you off?

I'm talking about smoking pot, shooting heroin, meth, street drugs.
I'm not talking about people that have to have pain pills for pain oe nerve pills for a mental disorder. I'm talking about alcoholics and street drug users.
They ruin their life doing drugs that they don't have to have.
People with cancer they smoke pot that they have a prescription for from their doctor is different. They NEED it. You defending drug addicts is pathetic.
They need to go to rehab and try to get off the street drugs instead of living their life until the day they die on drugs. Do you know of anyone that's on meth that has a job, own a home, nice car?? I bet you don't.

And another thing. If your mother got addicted to pain pills after surgery, after she didn't need the pills for pain then she should have told her doctor that she had become addicted and needed help to get off of them! She could have went to a rehab center. People shouldn't keep taking pain pills when they're not in pain! Instead of keeping on and on taking them she should have got help to get off of them! There is no excuse for not trying to get of drugs that you don't need. I know people that have had surgery and the doctor gave them morphine for pain and when they no longer needed it for pain they stopped taking it! Doctors do know how to ween people off of drugs if the person is willing to get off of the drug!

Damn! No wonder people are on drugs. They've people telling that it's ok that they're an addict, that's it's not their fault. If you have a loved one on drugs you should tell them why they need to get off of the drugs not tell them why it's ok for them to keep on taking the drug.

AMEN. It was the same with me and I'm blessed to have never accepted my upbringing, to have recognized my mistakes, and met the right woman and above all - LISTENED to her and reason.
I'll never live in JoCo again. 23 years was enough.

You can defend it all you want but we're about as hopeless as you can get for folks whose parents don't own this, who live from paycheck to paycheck,or who are managers at the mills. Anybody in this category with any gumption is most likely headed out of town.
It is what is - reality isn't kind or forgiving. It's reality and this is the reality we got in MC.

Anybody who thinks otherwise is sugar coating it to say the least.
Sorry - rant off

Actually i do know plenty of meth heads that hold a full time job and do have nice stuff and guess what their families don't know and I'm not defending drug addicts all i was saying I'd you don't know their sorry my moms addiction started after surgery and long time use of prescription pain medication when age couldn't get any more she started using street drugs to keep from being sick. You have mi right to put anybody down for their problems .we all know you think your invincible god forbid anything happen to you that you might have to be put on medication. addiction is addiction it doesn't matter how it happens it just does and is proven to be hereditary another thing for you to ponder it isn't always the persons fault call it an excuse all you want until you have been there you won't understand
