So is it just me or is it out of control?

Drugs Are Bad

Drugs Are Bad

The other weekend I was working my night job and started asking about one of the other employees. I hadn’t seen them in like 7 months. It was this awesome 20 year old guy that just seemed to know something about everything. Anyway…it turns out that he is addicted to heroine. Really? Heroine?! That baffles me. I can understand certain drugs, but I have never understood whatever caused anybody to even try it or want to.

It’s exremely sad to know that somebody just completely screwed themself in the course of a few months.

I’ve never been a drug user. I smoked a few times and had “fun” in Vegas once, but drugs in general just weren’t for me.

I would say 100% of people I have met this year (outside of my day job…because they wouldn’t share) smoked pot. Out of those people I would say 80% has done/continue to do cocaine or 50% of those people are/were into other drugs like LSD, Shrooms, Heroine…etc.

This is my first year being exposed to it and it has just sort of hit me.

  1. Proud to announce I’ve never tried heavier drugs than alcohol, coffee and cigarettes!
    I am amazed too that so many smoked pot at some point in their life and to be honest I WOULD somewhere like to try pot, but then again, for WHAT? So, yes, I’d say it’s out of control…

  2. Well the part that I find strange is that I’m 25 and I’m now just being exposed to these things. After speaking to friends it has been around, but I just never noticed it. To me heavy drugs almost seemed fictional…as if they weren’t my world, but I was wrong it involves so many people around me.
