In all due honesty everyone, I haven't an issue that could be medically labelled as an addiction physiologically, or a chemical dependency. What I do does not matter, I wouldn't mind sharing, however this forum to me, with some posts I've read, seems to be a danger zone for someone comfortable with drug exposition. I'd rather no stigma. Some background info; I'm a 20 year young male, I haven't physically been around for awhile. However, I have experienced massive amounts of life that I wouldn't wish upon the world. Some of which in relation to drugs, seeing what they first hand do to individuals.. Example, I've sold a lot of drugs. From the ages of 13 until just recently have I been involved in lucrative criminal activities, and mainly the drug world... I hadn't time to buy an ounce and sell it retail. I was manufacturing drugs. It was essentially a passion for chemistry I had naturally always possessed, mixed with the struggle of poverty, and growing up in statistically bad neighborhoods/exposed to negativity. So I've seen it first hand.. I still suffer tremendous amounts of guilt, being 15 years old, selling this kid I met in school some Oxycontin cause he never tried it and simply wanted to, however, he got into it. At the time I told him that I couldn't just get Oxycontin, for it can only be obtained via governmental administration. However, I told him, I wouldn't have much an issue processing pure codeine for him from certain OTCs, or whip him up a batch of four (Heroin that can be inhaled).. stupid of me... Now 5 years later, he's a homeless heroin junky.. It may have happened inevitably, however I feel the guilt only cause I had fed his curiosity of opiates; I opened the door. It may have taken him to jump through it, but I opened it for him. There are many other small tales too, I can literally go on for years, but only like ten . I saved my best friends life of a hydromorphine addiction as well, and he hasn't relapsed since. I am very happy for that, yet the process was grim... and even though recovered medically.. he's still messed up from the opiates.. I guess this is why I have never had an addictive personality, especially to substances I have tried with recreational purpose. I just dealt with them too much before and without letting a substance get to my head, or shall I say.. not allow me to get to my head.. Either way; I'm here as a way to give back, the past two years of my life have been reflective of how to better myself as an individual from the relatively empty and hurt person I was, and if there is at all, anything from it that I can use to contribute to the world. I've got some figured out. I have quite a fundamental understanding of biochem, organic chem, etc. I'm currently working on getting education within those fields, and pharmacology, to hopefully be a developer and researcher of medications, as well street level drugs. Gather proper statistics to inform society, as well develop what could be safer alternatives to current medications given out. Finally, until then, all I can really do is discuss and share my knowledge to people who truly yearn the information. I'm all facts, no opinions. Any type of question you have towards regulated substances, I'll have an answer. I highly encourage parents as an audience as well; I am a part of this crappy corrupt generation of plasticity.. who would know better than what you're child is actually up to non other? Any questions regarding your child and substances, I can answer. Even on a pharmacological level, such as understanding the potential expectations of effects with certain molecular compounds in response to certain sets of neurology. (Mental illness, cognitive impairment, physical issues). Please feel free to ask me anything, otherwise, I'll hopefully be around, and contributing to some threads. Hopefully I'll have some good one on one experiences with some addicts or concerned individuals. Give them all the knowledge I can to help them.. cause knowledge is power. Love and Peace, Always, Danky Dextrorotatory.
