Australia's boom is anything but for its Aboriginal peopl...

i believe it will take a fair amount of time for things to get better for the aboriginals, but sitting on our hands doing nothing gets us nowhere. I have travelled a lot of Western Australia, and other parts of Australia and I have had the chance to meet a great deal of people from all sorts of different backgrounds, the 1 common denominator with all the people i have met, whether they black, white, muslim, catholic... is that 1st impressions last, if an aboriginal boy, girl, man or woman (as with any person from any background)looks to You as You are passing in the street and you quickly look away or cross the road or deliberately avoid eye contact or some other gesture of rejection without any real reason to do so, (Of course You must use Your own discretion), then that rejected person must deal with that rejection somehow. We've all dealt with it, it makes you feel really small, being judged and deemed worth less by the other party, well imagine that over and over, time after time, I'm sure most of us would develop an unhealthy way of dealing with this, maybe the "solution " would be to lash out, maybe turn to alcohol or drugs to mask the pain of constant rejection... who knows? Just think about if the shoe was on the other foot. Next time You pass an aboriginal or someone of an "unfamiliar " culture or nationality, instead of rejecting them in an instant JUST SAY HELLO! You may just be surprised at the reaction you get. It's not hard, all people want is respect and to feel worthwhile and accepted in the world they live in. People have lost the art of compassion, empathy and Love for their fellow mankind. Sounds like a simplistic train of thought doesn't it? Well every great achievement starts with 1 tiny action.  (May 1, 2013 | post #35)

Extremist heads to WA

So hafidfaruq are you one of the deserters that got on a leaky boat and came to our lucky country where you get to sit on your ass and collect a dole payment? I think so, you have a lot of strong opinions but you are full of shit! If you were loyal to your own country why aren't you there making a difference by helping your women get educated so they can also contribute to society? Oh that's right your a sexist, misogynistic Muslim that think women are no better than dog shit, sorry your kind aren't welcome in this country, you know not all Muslims are terrorists but all terrorists are Muslim hey? Go figure  (Mar 22, 2013 | post #32)

Yes I see, but all the countries run by Islamic governments are fucked up, so if your prediction does come true we will still be better off than you and your Muslim fellow countries, religion and politics are NOT A GOOD MIX just look around the world, how many Muslim countries are doing great right now? If there are any it's only the corrupt ass kissers not the public, they are living in poverty now and always will be for as long as Muslims are in control!!!  (Mar 22, 2013 | post #31)

Wow well hopefully it works out for you, it's frustrating when you know that you are right and people are being ripped off for the benefit of a few, and no one in authority will listen. I still recommend ringing Howard Sattler at 6PR the politicians listen to his show and quite often they will ring in within minutes of hearing their name. He certainly stands up for the little guy and gets things done when the correct channels don't care.  (Mar 22, 2013 | post #4)

whats the go with all these silver ferns on aussie cars?

I drive anywhere in perth and every second car has a silver fern or an all blacks sticker sprawled across the back window, why? Hey kids look, look over there there's a kiwi!!! Wow I've been blessed! That's one thing I can cross off the bucket list? Now just a Rhino and a Lion in the wild and I'm set.  (Mar 22, 2013 | post #1)

Maori turn Australian towns into 'little NZs'

What's the go with all these silver ferns and all blacks stickers over Aussie built cars? We've all heard the "oh brew it's so much bitter beck home" "the fush is bitter" "the wither is bitter" "even the mulk us creamier back home in enzed brew" well prove it to us that it is bitter beck home and go back there and then tell us how good it is, because while you're all flocking over here in drones it makes you look like liars. Hey Brew?  (Mar 22, 2013 | post #166)

Whoever wins, call an election - Newman

Julia gillard has destroyed the Labour Party! It's a bit like the Australian cricket team, if you're not mates with the captain you're off the team! Bring back Rudd and I will vote labour again but for as long as Julia Gillard is in the top job I can't trust them, and Smug Wayne Swan, I can't wait for him to be sent packing!!! I'm sick of seeing his shifty little grin.  (Mar 22, 2013 | post #1)

Wife found the Roxy stash... Selling them all for cheap.

I'm smitten Bettysmitten, you're cute I like your style but don't sell yourself short! I wouldn't be handing out any free poops from the freak boy/cat/girl/dog you cAn convert those little treasures to real cash there's a strong market on eBay for collectors of rare endangered animal droppings for cloning and preserving, I personally have a fine collection of block mounted rare poops on display in my main room it's a great talking piece for when I bring women home from the clubs, really gets them going, unfortunately I've yet to bed one of them yet because every time we get going the poop collection seems to jog their memory that they left the stove on at home or they forgot to feed their pets and so they have to get going FAST! glad I can help them to not burn their houses down or let their poor animals go hungry, fingers crossed one of these beautiful women will eventually remember to turn off their cooking appliances and feed their animals before they go out clubbing so then me and my poop collection will eventually get lucky! I can't wait!  (Feb 19, 2011 | post #41)

im currently using suboxone as short term detox

Hey there bigboynow good on you for going for it, how much sub do you have left? I weaned down to .5 mgs a day for a couple of days before I jumped off and it worked well, if you wait as long as you can to have another dose I think the small amounts are most effective when you do so, sounds like you'd be over the major hurdle of detoxing from your drug of choice after ten days so I think if you just keep going down and down to let yourself adjust to the small amounts you should be fine. Of course there's no absolute painless detox but if used properly the sub detox is as close as you can get. I think you'll be surprised at how well 1mg then .5mg can hold you, your worst enemy can be psyching yourself out and overthinking it too much, you really should be over the worst of your detox and from here on you just have to stay strong mentally, as I've said in previous posts it starts to snowball, the better you do the day before the more confident you will be starting the next day, and so on. Sorry I didn't ask but what were you taking before and how much? if you don't mind me asking that is, it's a great thing you're doing and you'll be so proud of yourself when you overcome this and with the determination you seem to have I'd say you'll have no problems achieving your goals, keep it up and keep posting your success I'm sure you're aware the more people on here succeeding the more people that will follow your footsteps so it's awesome to take the knowledge that for your suffering and your determination can also help 1 person or it could potentially help 1000's of people achieve sobriety, you know you're worth it!!  (Feb 19, 2011 | post #3161)

im currently using suboxone as short term detox

Hello world I haven't posted on here for a while now since I had an epidural on my lumbar spine. I ended up with terrible headaches from the epidural and I've been scraping to get by, finally seems to be getting better, it came in waves on and off, shocking, however now the epidural is working and doing it's thing I'm happy with the results, my Dr gave me a script of 90 oc's which I filled but I didn't take any, for those that don't know I did a short term detox with sub and I had to go through the same battle to get clean as you all, but I'm proud to say that even with the headaches and the script there I didn't crumble, I survived on a combo of ibuprofen and paracetamol (thats what we call APAP here in Australia) and although it wasn't a great combo it helped, I sure as he'll didn't want to go back down the road of addiction again, I've lost track of how long I've been clean probably close to a month if not more and I have finally started to come out the other side of it with a f@cking huge smile on my face knowing that I could've just had one oxy to help w the headache, but for me one is never enough and one turns into 3 or 4 and well you all know the rest of that. I can't believe how busy this post is it's great to see everyone helping each other, but I'm wondering where DMoney and Teeshot are among others if anyone knows them please can you let me know how to contact them? I'm sorry I let my contact with the site slip I just had a real battle with my demons and some f@cked up spinal fluid leak which caused all my pain. Keep up the Excellent work all, oh and by the way I ended up flushing the oxys down the toilet because I could hear them singing to me constantly, but now I know I'm BETTER OFF OF IT!  (Feb 19, 2011 | post #3158)

Thanks Shawn yeah I'll feel great, I would never have even considered it as an option if I hadn't come across your post, as you can see from my location I'm all the way over in western australia, so your efforts have reached the other side of the world, you should be proud of the amount of help you've given all these people, the ones who have posted and the ones who've sat back and read the progress of others and gained hope. Didi this really is an absolute doable thing, so many have succeeded on this post alone, You definitely sound determined and I'm sure You CAN do this! Hey DMoney, Teeshot how are You both?

im currently using suboxone as short term detox

Hello everyone, hey Shawn good to see you're on here again I've been posting for a little while on here and thanks to you starting this post and everyone else contributing I gained enough confidence to have a go, and now I'm nearly from recollection 3 weeks clean from all opiates after a short detox with sub, and loving it. I'm sorry to everyone I've been in contact with I've had a bit of a fight with my Internet provider and have had my service cut for a while so I haven't been able to post on here, but I'm back online again. I'm sitting in the hospital waiting to have my epidural done today after a but of a delay but looking forward to it none the less, I have to turn off my iPhone shortly because I'm hopefully going in soon to have my epidural so I'll catch everyone either later today or early tomorrow, bye for now  (Feb 8, 2011 | post #2878)
