The problem is with people like you who seem to think the problem is solved with one simple solution when in fact it's going to take a lot more work and faith in God. But for a simpleton like you I wouldn't expect nothing but grade school solutions.

I am open minded, let's hear your solution that will ABSOLUTELY work.

Education, rehabilitation, incarceration..... ALL of these have been tried for decades, ALL of these have failed.

Any solution that will work will have one thing in common. It will remove drug offenders from our society.

Well, I think that you are simply ignorant to the disesase of addiction. This island you speak of wouldn't work. I think that "we" should take people like you, who refuse to educate, and insist on remaining ignorant, just for the sake of argument. I propse a gang of "heads" get a hold of you and do what they will.

See here is the problem, it's already conclusively proven education doesn't work, in fact it has failed miserably.

Next thing is, addiction is not a disease. People do not CHOOSE to be diseased. Cancer is a disease, malaria is a disease, there are several more. Drug addicts are well educated about addiction, before they ever use the first time, and still do it. That is choice, again, people don't choose to be diseased, they do choose to be addicts. The difference is easy to see.

Now, you say that my idea about an island would not work, but you fail to state why it wouldn't work and you also fail to provide a WORKING solution to the problem of your own.

Oh wait, or are you part of the problem yourself? One if those lying thieving killing "heads" as you called them, parasiting off of the tax payers, and are just upset because the truth cuts to the bone? I think it's really possible.

No, I am really tired. Tired of junkies trying to steal what I work hard for so they can trade it for their next fix.

Tired of worrying when I drive to work if some junkie is going to be out there too and pass out behind the wheel and cause a fatal crash with me.

Tired I will be at the wrong place at the wrong time (my own home), and get shot by a junkie that's trying to steal what I work so hard for.

Tired of worry about these same things happening to my loved ones at the hands of miserable junkies.

Tired of seeing my payday every two weeks and a third of it gone, knowing that a lot of that is used to support these junkies that contribute nothing to society.

I not bored, I am too busy working for a living and telling it like it is to be bored.

I think she is too lenient. If it were up to me any drug related offense would come with a mandatory first time offender death sentence, and an expidited one at that. Not one that drags through the system for months or years before being carried out, instead a matter of weeks, at most.
Every single thing wrong with our society can be traced back to drugs. It needs to stop immediately, and this is the best way to make that happen. Most crime is the result of some idiot junkie trying to get their next fix. Also junkies can't get or hold a regular job so our tax dollars support them. Not to mention how much taxpayer money would be saved on rehab facilities that don't work because these tards don't want help.
I am talking dealers and users alike, and bad doctors writing bad prescriptions. Bottom line, one and done, F up one time and get busted for any drug related offense and you Fing die!!!
Here's an alternative idea. Pile it all up on the nearest street corner;heroin,prescription pain killers,bath salts,whatever. Holler gray mare,come and get it. It's free,no arrests,just let them get it....keep piling it up until the problem solves itself and the only thing left is to bury the sorry asses overdosed bodies...

Actually I would like to think I am part of a solution, Absolutely no one chooses to be a drug addict. Addiction is a disease. I did wake up obe day and say,"sel lets go get us a drug problem" nope, I sure didn't. But, as kife would have it, I git myself a drug problem anyway. I have struggled with this disease for many years. I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy. I am sober now and have been for many years, but I do fight everyday for my sobriety. When I was little and peopke asked me what I wanted to be when I grewup - I didnt say junkie, thief crank head, but that is what I became. I was raised in a two parent home with my sisters and brother. My parents worked hard everyday. We went to church on Sunday. They gave us all life had to offer. We were not abused in any way. All of us are welk educated with degrees. Like I said from the jump, no one chooses addiction. If I had known then what I jnow now to be my life.....well I'd change a few things. I wish I wasn't an addict. I wish I didn't have this life threatening disease, but I do and so do many othets who are not fortunate enough to live ling enough to get the help they so desperately need. And most of them don't because of ignorance and ignorant people like you. Before you run your mouth and talk about something yougave absolutely no idea about try educating yourself then talk to someone like me. And God help you if you are ever seriously hurt or injured and become addicted.

Addiction doesn't just happen. You chose to use drugs, even though I know very well that up until that point the don't do drugs message had been hammered into your thick skull along with so much education about the consequences of doing drugs. Yet you still chose to do them that first time.... You chose. At that moment you destroyed your life. You are not a victim of anything or anyone but yourself.
Once you strip away all of the lies, and excuses, all that is left is truth. And that truth is that addiction is very bad, but it's no disease, for reasons I pointed out earlier. It's a self inflicted condition. Yes it is one that can be recovered from. The issue is that next to no junkies want to recover. They are quite content to just lie steal and kill if they have to so they can get the next fix, and let the taxpayers foot the bill for their existence. For every one like yourself that actually does make change happen (kudos for that by the way, credit where credit is due), there are a thousand new users jump right into drugs and the problem grows. That is why rehabilitation is NOT a solution.
Until a EVERY addict wants t get better and all dealers stop selling, and all bad doctors stop writing bad scripts, and all kids/young adults stop making that same foolish choice, this will continue to grow and destroy our very civilization.
I think even you will admit that all of these things will NEVER happen, so the only realistic solutions to the problem that might save our society is something like what I suggest.

Please don't waste your time replying to emmitt. All it does is encourage him to make more clueless remarks. He does not understand compassion nor grace, even though God gives it to him everyday for his transgressions.

There is a difference between compassion and grace, and just plain pity, which is what most users really want. They want to be pitied and have everyone feel bad for them and their self inflicted condition, while they don't even try to get better, and just keep on stealing and doing everything else that goes along with being an addict.
I don't pity them, they are not victims, hell the rest if us are the victims, the ones working hard every day to support them, the ones they steal from and lie to. We are the victims, not them.
They are the ones with no compassion, they feel no guilt or remorse for the things they do to the rest of us, none if it matters as long as they get next pill or shot or whatever.

I have given up on him. I just hope others that read this sees how good God is. That there are people who do recover. Help is out there.if only one person has some new light from my story then it is worth it. You have to want sobriety to achieve sobriety. Addiction is a disease. Oh, and, Doc Brown, we addicts never say recovered...its recovering, and it takes a life time, one day at a time.

Wanting it is key, one out of a thousand wanting it is not going to resolve the problem. Bryant is the point I have been making. I have offered up solutions that will resolve the problem. No one else has.

Oh, and still not a disease, like i said, strip away the lies and excuses and you are left with the truth, that addiction is a self inflicted condition.

You are correct. Your story brings hope. I know that more and more people are recovering as the disease of addiction becomes more and more understood. If we all had as narrow a focus as Brown, then the world would never progress.
I wish you continued success with your recovery and pray that your story continues to give hope to others out there suffering. God is indeed good and gives us grace everyday even though none of us deserve it.

I don't have a narrow focus, I know that RARELY, someone does actually decide that enough is enough and they get help and they over come addiction. It doesnt change how they became addicted in the first place though, it also doesn't change that for every one that rehabilitates there ate 100 new to replace them. It also doesn't mean we are not at crisis stage with this problem.

No I am not narrow minded, but I also don't have my head buried in the sand ignoring the reality of the situation.

Okay, last time. I don't think that anyone is ignoring the reality of the cause and affect drugs and active using addicts create. But to really believe that putting all "heads" on an island is just simply stupid.there is no such island, nor will there ever be. So once again, the only way to recover is through home and prayer. Oh, and I did not think that I would become "one of those" people when I started using. I was very seriously hurt in a bad car wreck. I was in a comam and nearly died. By the time I was releasef I wad addicted to oxycontin. I was totally out of control by the time I got home from Cabell Huntington. The doctors wrote my prescription, and I tried my best to follow thedosing directins. I did not even realize I had a drug probkem until I was confronted by family. I thought that I was doing as the ddoctor ordered. I thought that they just didn't understand the pain I was in, and so I took more than the alloted dose and was soon out of meds. Upon running out, I went to the streets. Even when I was buying pills from dealers I still did not realize I had a drug problem. I thought that I had a money oroblem, because the dealers prices were outrageous. Anyway, I hope you can pick up what I'm puttin' down. I'm truly done talking to you. You clearly are one sided, and refuse to even maybe consider that you yourself one day could be an addict at no fault to yourself.you don't become addicted over night. You do not rel7ze that when people start using it makes you feel great. That is the only reason we keep using. Then gefore you know it, your addictef.

I do understand the pain, but choosing to take more than prescribed was choosing to be an addict. The directions are there for a reason.
As far as an island I know there isn't one, and that's a shame. It leads us back to my more feasible original solution to the problem since there still has not been another suggestion that would have a snowballs chance of working.
