By legalizing OxyContin in the '90's when Purdue Pharma knowingly lied, (meanwhile keeping real medicine....cannabis as a SCHEDULE 1 DRUG)…...led to this.
An American embarrassment. Now it's spread across the globe.
such a sad boring life running around all day/night looking for a fix, this is your life and you cant get away from your self but only for moments bliss and then you comedown and it all goes over and over again for pleasure's of the flesh most ppl never get out of the loop till they die and meet the Father Jesus. amen for them all.
Couldn’t people that are addicted to it just take something like lsd or other phycadelics because they could microdose it to help addiction and I imagine lsd or other things are allot more powerful as fentanyl which are not addictive
There’s a part of me that wants to feel bad but I just can’t because they chose this lifestyle, you bought the drugs, you did drugs, the next day you bought more, you did drugs again, and blah blah blah.
No one forced them to do drugs, they chose to do drugs, if they wanted to get off drugs, they would get off them.
It’s a choice, it’s how to chose to live, it’s not “oh I got stuck”.
You are the problem and you need to face it, you did this to yourself.

A very very very very very very good friend of mine opened up a business in Hull about 5 years ago. and I went to assist her. I couldn't believe the amount of drug addicts they were here. One night 🌃 we went to the local shop 🏪 and these 3 girls 👭 were standing out. I asked them what they were doing and they said they were street prostitutes. I felt so sorry 🙏 for them.
Thing is is, the drug services dont give a fk. You got pen pushers over riding the drs. People who dont know what there talking about as your worker. They go out there way to mess with you so even though they are there to help, they do not help.
Prince Charles come and shut Renew at the Octagon down last year. It was a hut behind a nice building lol.
Ive been to many Cities but this City, the people are so bad.
Homeless and deaths is High and nothings going to change. You complain about anything and the managers just have there back so you in a no win situation, same as the council, jobcentre and anything gov run. Most are not qualified to even be in the job they are in yet will act asif they know everything.
Hull is easy the most corrupt City Ive ever been too.
They spend milliions on painting a bridge but forget the homeless and drug crisis.
They have made it so homeless people cant even get benefits. They have a purpose built hostel that is some 300 a week to live in that they try dump every one in but no one can afford to live in there.
Never come to Hull and if you do, do bot trust any one, they all roll the same. These people are like this due to the attitude of the people who are spose to help them.
The doctors are the biggest pushers, they get you hooked on opioid medication then abruptly stop leaving you turning to street drugs,
If you get hold of your medical record you will be shocked as the doctors are still using your name for the drugs while they are popping them,
Freedom of information will give you access to your own medical record but the minute you ask the doctor to view your record you will be given a set date instead of instant which means your record is being altered or fabricated,
Either way you are the junkie while the doctor sits all jolly in his office,
10 years ago I used to smoke the gel from the patches at least you would know how much you
needed without risk of overdose (for experienced users) clean for 8 years also from suboxone, staying clean does work if you put in the work, first thing change your environment no need to move far away somewhere I did that went to a small country town in NZ, person at bus stop wanted to sell me couple patches and meth all I could do was lol and walk away..
To me.from the UK substance abuse and all that. Why don't they agree to get locked up for 2 months, until their sober... Same for America, how they ever expect to win is beyond me as some who lived it. No one can put their self in their shoes to understand what it's like to rather die than face another day on this earth. Give them a reason and you win. As simple as. if everyone gave me the chance to help others in the same situation then i'd spend 90% of my time doing so. Sadly the only way to help them is when they want help. Good luck to anyone going through it and i have faith in you. Just take rach day from day to day and god ony knows the possibiblities. Good luck everyone.
Get me a red Toyota pickup, big gun set up on it. I'll go about shooting these zombies.
Real life zombie killer video game.
I know I shouldn't say this on here....................
Somebody could steal my idea!!
Be good Saturday evening game show.
What do points make??.............prizes!
It has become a plague of epidemic proportions Worldwide !! Any opioid addiction is crazy hard to try to kick !! especially on your own and without the proper safety net of a good ballance of help from the "Proper" Healthcare professionals as well as friends and family .. Its a dark road for all who travel it !! but there is an end if you want there to be !! And if you can kick an opioid addiction you can do anything!!!
It's sad that medicine keeps getting abused i mean some countries legalize medicine for daily consumption for e.g. marijuana is a know medicine across many countries time and time in history and now in countries like in America its legal who the duck thinks just popping medicine is a good idea ??
I there one thing all these addicts seem to be missing in life, a sense of purpose, a need to escape and plenty of excuses to keep them stuck. Unfortunately you cannot help someone unless they are ready to help themselves. Until we deal with why people abuse drugs then there will be some drug crisis. Fentynal drug abuse will fade but then some other drug will pop up and the whole cycle come back again
If you read the data you will see that if you stop saving people having drug overdoses the drug overdose problem will eventually go away. For every addict overdosing your emerg response is.......a police officer maybe 2, 2 paramedics, poss EMS fire, 1 emerg doctor, 2 emerg nurses, 3 admin personnel and up to 3 more people contributing time for clean up and resetting equipment plus all the equipment.....total cost of treatment is approx $15,000 per overdose. Every addict suffers an average of 20 overdoses in their lifetime of addiction and there are approx 7 1/2 million drug addicts in the U.S. so that's 150,000,000 overdoses costing the taxpayer two trillion two hundred fifty billion dollars being pissed away on people who have a 98% recidivism rate. Does anyone else see a better use for this money than piling it up and burning it day in and day out, year after year, decade after decade????? And please don't give me the bullshit about if it saves just one life or you can't put a price on a life.
Dirty rodents and other animals can be found at home to help you find your own food or drink, wendy says if you have a problem with the plug and switch that you can use the plug for the car to make sure you have enough time to repair it
Goverment are the drugs dealers, teh reason it's illegal is to put price, up. like with alchohol, al capone was selling moonshine for 10 times as much or whatever. legalising is solution, maybe not crack and meth, dunno confusing
If only dealers had the most basic understanding of business. They want to make money eh? Well a dead customer isn't going to bring you any money. A dead customer is useless.
Either people are severely retarded or it seems to me maybe theres another agenda to this.
2019, Done w/ all this sh*t. Big Facts, Drugs, Alcohol, and Douche Bag azz N* ggas. Enough is Enough! When you know better, you do better* Peace and Blessings to everyone, dont judge because this can be ur mother, brother, sister or lover. xoxo
If you are actually dumb enough to inject yourself with it then you kinda get what you deserve. Why is everyone feeling sorry for these people. Herion I understand.. that’s one thing but this is just going way too far.
Fent sucks. The rush is no where as good as Heroin and Fent wears off so fast. And thats not even mentioning the fact that its so easy to OD on. I dont do anything but I for sure know that if a dealer here had actual Heroin people would love him. But H just isnt around here in Ohio (southwestern) anymore. its cut up and ,made brown to look like H, but it doesnt contain any Heroin
