Drugs- Don't Try Them

You will get hooked-

If your ever tempted to use and think you're not going to get hooked, think again.

I have many friends who have fallen pray to the "devil drug" called . This has other street names like crank and speed or they shorten the name and call it "meth".

I also have a childhood friend who is hooked on heroin. It hurts me to see people that I hooked on these drugs and there is nothing I can do to save them.

A drug addict will rationalize in their mind that the drug they are doing does not have control over them, that they can take it and leave it whenever they want to.

If that is the truth then why do they keep going back and using again? It obviously has some kind of hold on them or it would not even come into their minds to do it again.

My own husband has been an addict for over +25 years on and off. He has told me in the past that he thought it could help him get through the day and his intentions were never to use again, but that's not how drugs work.

Once you use them and it makes you feel good, your body and mind remember that high and you will crave it again. It's never a good idea to try or do drugs, it ruins marriages, friendships and lives.

The drug I turn to most often is caffeine. Years ago I drank and smoked cigarettes but I hardly do either anymore.

You have a friend hooked on female heroes? I believe you meant heroin, not heroine.

I'm a former meth addict, been free for 8 years now.

You should hear the arguments that I have with my PA over the medications that I take. I would love to despense with them entirely, but I also like the fact that the cocktail that I take -works-. So it goes!

Hey whatever works for you but prescription pills can be very addicting so be careful!

Drugs aren't good. Simple as that. I am a nicotine addict, however I do not 'smoke' any more, I vape e-cigarettes, so I have made the first step to quitting the nicotine for good.

I can testify what what you say is true. i have seen drugs almost destroy one family close to me and only the grace of God saved it.
