I really want to know what people think about all the needle junkies in this town? I don't have a problem with people using drugs recreationally but I have a HUGE problem with people shooting up! whether that be Oxy's, Cocaine, Meth, or what ever else these extremely dumb people might shoot up! I don't understand why people shoot up? Clearly some people in town have learned serious life lessons while shooting up when they found out they were diagnosed with HEP C! Is that certain type of drug rush worth killing yourself over? People (that shoot up) in this town need to pull their heads out of their butts and realize that they are wasting their lives away! Another huge dissapointment is old friemds losing everything such as their bussinesses and houses over a needle! as well as the constant fights, and drama that surrounds the Jackson County drug use! YOU NEEDLE JUNKIES ARE VERY SAD AND I WISH YOU ALL WOULD REALIZE YOUR NOT ONLY RUINING YOUR OWN LIVES BUT YOUR FAMILIES TOO!!!!!!!!

All junkies are disgusting human being. There is no excuse for any drug abuse what so ever. Having a bad childhood or a rough life is not an excuse. No one has a perfect life or had a perfect childhood. It's what you do with your life that really matters and shows your true character. If mommy and daddy not loving you turns you to drug abuse, then you're a crappy person lol. You suck at being human.

Shit happens and it's all a part of being a human being. Go to a therapist, learn the copping skills that you obviously are lacking and grow the f up.

I don't feel a bit sorry for a drug addict, needle junkie or pill head and you wanna know why? Because they feel sorry enough for themselves.
Happy !!!!

Obviously you're not very educated or informed.
All addicts are victims of poor upbringing or abuse.
All addicts don't sit around feeling sorry for themselves .
I feel very sorry for you! You yourself are an unhappy person. If you say you are , you're lying! You not fooling me. Anybody else either.
I am a addict myself. My addiction didn't stem from ANY of the reasons you gave. Not one !!!
You are a bitter person for some reason. For that I have no idea and don't care . That's you're issue. You need to deal with that .
By the way , I've been clean for over 3 years running. I'm so happy I have to sit on my hands to keep from clapping !!!!! I've never felt sorry for myself.
Get help !!! God bless you!

Obviously you are not very educated. There are plenty of addicts that didn't grow up poorly, or were abused. A lot of addicts were brought up as bratty little kids with the world handed to them. They just went out and spent every penny on what mommy and daddy gave them. You ever think that people just like doing drugs? Uh yeah. People like drugs and the feeling that drugs give to them, crappy upbringing, or not. You don't have to have a crappy upbringing to turn to drugs. That's just another excuse for the addicts. I feel sorry for you because you're seriously an idiot if you think that EVERY addict has had a crappy upbringing. You couldn't be more wrong about that.

Ok, so you're a recovering addict, correct? And I said that having a bad child hood or a rough life is no excuse for drug abuse, correct? And like you said, ALL addicts are victims of POOR UPBRINGING or abuse (aka bad childhood), correct? And then you go on to say that you your upbringing had no part in your addiction, correct?

I call b.s. You are contradicting yourself all in the same paragraph!

I have every right to be angry with drug addicts and dealers. I am a sober member of society who has never touched a drug in my entire life and I'm surrounded by you f'ing addicts. In line in front of you at the grocery store, while you're standing there itching and tweaking. Driving in front you, while you are high. Risking the life of me and my family because you've had "a rough life". Well listen here, you feel sorry for yourself. Whether you realize it or not, you do. Or you would have never tried to self medicate yourself with drugs or alcohol to cope with the shitty hand of card life has dealt you.

I, my dear am not the uneducated one. I am a college graduate, I have a very good job, I have an amazing family and I can tell ya, it's not because my life has been a bed of roses. I've had it rough like everyone else. But the difference between you and I is simple, you took the easy way out and I put the work in.

But congratulations on being clean and sober. Please stay that way. I pray you do. God bless you sweetie, you need it more than I do.

It's called spell check !!! You are right in saying I contradicted myself. Saw it but said I'm tired I'm going to bed. All the time knowing you would reply shortly. For this I apologize .
Now to get this straight . I had a great childhood . I am a Airforce brat as you say. I to have an education.
I also work everyday just like yourself. The correct term for that is "functioning addict".
Never turned to mess for any reason like abuse, depressed, poor parents. My issues lie with orthopedic problems from many years of sports. From grade school thru college years. I've had 2 major knee operations, 2 major shoulder operations, disc and vertebrae removal, and several broken bones. When you compile that with doctors handing me mess instead of having me learning to deal with my pain issues you will have addiction when you wake up and smell the coffee.
Also you might want to put that high priced education to good use and do some research of your own and you will find out in the New England Journal of Medicine that addiction had been formally designated a disease. I mean that their opinion , but who are they but men and women that are far more educated than us.
I have a great family 6 children and 8 grand children. I've also been married 1 time. Same women for over 34 years.
So you see I have a bunch to be thankful for, and I thank god for that.
God bless and may peace and love come into your heart .

As a recovering addict myself, I feel people like you need to stay off discussions like this. I see you commented later in this forum that you are happy, great family, yada yada yada...obviously, you aren't as perfect as you think. To say that addicts are disgusting human beings and that they suck at being human. How insensitive. I too became addicted after going to a local pain clinic then abruptly cut off. That left me with 2 choices. Suck up the pain, or buy off the streets. I made the wrong desicion. I admit that. And yea, I did do drugs to hide the physical pain at first. Then the addiction changed my life and I was masking the emotional pain as well. Addiction is a disease. Nobody can help it. It can happen to anybody. It may not have happened to you, but what if it happens to one of your children? Are you gonna think they are disgusting? I certainly hope not. And you can say you are raising them better than that...my mom and dad raised me in church and taught me I was better than drugs...but addiction can happen to anyone...so I certainly hope you don't think ur family is immune to it. So if you was the "great" person like you think you are, you would not be so quick to judge. Only God can judge us. And if we repent, he will always forgive. So keep your mouth off of them. You have never been there so you don't know anything about it or their lifestyles. And please do not reply with some smart quirky comment because you think you are better than me. Because you are not. I may be divorced but I have wonderful kids, wonderful family and good friends. I have a great support system. And I am bettering my life. I am proud of myself. So back off. Oh and by the way...I had a perfect childhood and never felt sorry for myself while i was an addict(only after and looking back on myself did I feel sorry for myself). So your theories on addicts are completely idiotic.

Addiction does not DISCRIMINATE; it doesn't have a preference it simple doesn't care. Everyone is susceptible to this turmoil and its path of destruction.

KNOW THIS if you think that you are above this touching your life YOUR ARE WRONG; maybe it just hasn't happended and while I can appreciate your inexperience I am also repulsed by your ignorance. As you claim to understand or have knowledge in a subject in which you simply do not.

I really don't feel sorry for an addict. Before they even start on that journey of addiction, they see others putting the poison in their bodies, the way a junkie acts, the devastation they cause their family and friends. Look around this county alone and look at the children who have suffered. Feel sorry for them not having a parent they deserve, money for food going for a fix. I have heard of parents taking toys from their kids to sell for drugs. Its so damn sad that people can and would do that to a child. That's not even talking about the junkies who get abusive with their children. I understand there are people who become addicted to pain killers due to lack of proper care from a physician, but that doesn't excuse it. It just helps them blame someone else for stupid choices.

(Wtf seriously) what a cold hearted bitch, consider yourself lucky! I don't agree with the way adicts treat there kids, family, or anybody 4 that matter but u shouldn't judge! Not all of them act like that, there r good people that have had to go through adiction, not just trash! There are bad parents everywhere on drugs or not, I know a woman who has been on drugs but her kids never go without, I agree she needs help, but my point is not all addicts are bad people or parents everyobody has issues!

You Dumbass, you don't know what people go through. You could be there yourself I wouldn't judge if i were you. Have you ever lost a child or someone close to you? Or been molested, or any other terrible things. I don't shootup, but you have no right to judge these people. It makes me sick that my sons served this country to protect a piece of crappy shit like you!!! Going to a therpist doesn't help all the problems. You should be praying instead of on here downing everyone.

Actually yes. My mother and father were addicts and dealers as far back as I can remember. My father is also in a federal prison for the rest of his life for molesting multiple people. One of which was me. Don't judge. No one had a perfect life. It's what you do with the crap that gets thrown at you that shows your character. I would never abuse drugs, in any way. And you know why? Because I learned how NOT to be at a very young age. So don't tell me not to judge and assume I've had a perfect life just because I've never used drugs. That's judgmental.

I'm a happy, healthy clean and sober person. Not by birth but by CHOICE. Peace be with you!
