    I think that messages like that really help keep it in people's minds that it happens way more often than we might think. Every since I had my episodes and issues, of course which continue to this day in recovery, it is apparent that people all over suffer from substance issues in a variety of fashions. We can all help each other, and we all need help from each other. Support is certainly an important part of anyone's recovery.

    You have an extremely distorted view about the "Wonderful life of an addict"I'm not going to be to blunt as I think you got sucked into the judgement zone here on this thread,but it is not a Wonderful life to be trapped by a substance to the point you can't function without it.You say addiction is not a disease and considering that mental health is a driving force in addiction can you please tell every Dr on the planet that they are confused, I don't think they realize someone suffering with mental health issues can literally just stop having issue's when ever they want because apparently you just need to tell yourself. I don't hear voices!!This Alzheimer's is a myth!!Depression...What depression mental health is no longer a contributing factor in anything. Thanks for clearing this all up I was almost convinced my life as an addict was miserable....Oh and since you got your "I'm superior to you"hat on let me just tell you how my addiction got started.Apparently when I was 6 I told my Dr to put me on hi doses of Ritalin so I could feel like I was on METH. That's right.I never picked the substance, in fact I never had a say in it at all.Hold your hand on your chest just to make sure you actually have a HEART. My apologies I got a bit passionate as I typed I'm sorry for being such a smartasss it was not my intention. I hope next time you read the book before saying it was no good!!

    By his reasoning we should hate cancer patients and the chemotherapy they are on to try and beat the disease.This person must be so perfect in every way that even his food prepared itself.....Ahhhhh to be living the "Charmed"life.(NOT FOR NORMAL HUMAN'S ONLY FOR THE ABSOLUTE PERFECT SPECIMEN)

    My mom subscribes to a gardening magazine called southern living.

    Years ago a buddy of mine (making fun of my accent) put together a pamphlet of southern slang mixed with cuss words I used a lot and titled it southern cussin.
    Not proud, just sayin

    Well that one wasn't on purpose. I promise you that. Only thing out of the ordinary I have noticed with posts lately is misspelled words and poor grammar in some posts who usually have great spelling and grammar.
    Not just on this site either but a tractor restoration forum and a coral/reef aquarium forum I'm also a member of.

    Actually the tractor forum got hit with spam so bad a few days ago i left that one. There was porn on it for days (2 to be exact) and I thought where are the moderators because this should have been gone ASAP! Actually it might still be there I only say two because I gave it two days before i left.
    I haven't been back to check. Nor will I.

    I should have erased it and re written all of that properly and not in all caps.

    I am way too quick to anger. That post came from an uneducated person. Uneducated when it comes to addiction anyway. They could be a rocket scientist for all I know(dought it though from the profile pic they look like they would need a haircut before a company would hire them).
    But my point is I shouldn't let people work me up so much, it certainly is not a way to get through to those who might have otherwise listened.
    I love to debate. And I like to watch debates, like Ben Shapiro, and Change My Mind, those two are my fovorites, I should take a lesson from their calm demeanor.
