Drug Abuse: Have you ever heard of a drug....

    Drug Abuse:  Have you ever heard of a drug....

    Drug Abuse:  Have you ever heard of a drug (or bottle of alcohol) complaining about being abused?  Probably not, so do you think all those joints and bottles of Chivas have just repressed the memories of their abuse?  Or are they in denial?

    Note: "abuse" just means that some moralistic busybody doesn't like what you are doing with or to your own body.  And is going to impose their will on you.  They are going to impose THEIR values on YOU.

    This is an entirely different subject than whether "abusing" drugs or alcohol is stupid or not.  It's YOUR body.

    To each their own ... as long as you are honest with yourself, "it's all good". Not recognizing your problems is what may hurt. (Hey DaBeaner, I am not talking to "you" in the above statement ... just in general lol)

    I am in complete agreement with you.  I have done a couple of hubs around this subject, because I am one of those "rare cases" that stayed completely functional.  I was honest with my family and I did not allow my addiction to mess up the other apects of my life.  Yes, these are two completely different topics, but not many people few it like that.  I am on your side here.

    You make that ultimate choice of which way you want to go and if you really care what others think than to begin with you probably wouldnt be in this predicment to begin with. Honestly, i feel drug use or alcohol use doesn't slow the mind as long as your not depending solely on that source....i feel they actually expand your horizons, how many people can say i stared at a bush for 3 hours on shrooms and i really appreciated nature after that being able to process that into your mind and see the world in a light that you havent seen before...why is that so terrible is a good question that i dont think i answered for you....sorrry haha.
