Helping myself

I will never touch cocaine ever again in my lifetime. I was going through a phase and felt depressed over personal issues in my life. So I decided to give a try. I figured maybe it would help me sort of numb the pain so to speak. But I realize that no, it’s not the answer to solve your problems. Just giving the benefit of my experience here. On one hand it made me feel as though I’d been on top of the world right on cloud nine. But when I did too much, I’d spend my days coming home at 6 AM and layed in bed until 2 PM. Once that high wore off, I became irritable, angry and gloomy. Very bleak. Cocaine is also by far the worst drug when it comes to sex. You can’t even get aroused since it cuts off your blood circulation. I realized that I needed to look deeper inside myself to resolve the personal issues going on in my life. So I went to see a psychologist and he gave me the best advice anybody could ever give me. He told me to just focus on pleasant scheduling instead of doing drugs. And by pleasant scheduling he said to keep on doing the things I love such as drawing, exercising, swimming getting a haircut, going for a massage etc. Ever since I’ve taken up pleasant scheduling, my life has turned around for the better. I can now think for myself and my head is a lot more clear than it was before. Making a decision to cut the dangerous poison out of my life was one of the healthiest choices I’ve ever made and haven’t looked back since. I encourage anybody who is itching to break free from that vicious circle not to hesitate to go seek help. Helping yourself requires discipline and willpower but it saves your life and will do you good in the long run.

Your life story that you are sharing can help others. In my life I had tried the coke a few times but a 'little voice' whispered caution and thankfully I got it, because I've seen the 'chokebrain' kill and wreck many lives. I've also learned that all the types of substance abuse are a form of 'reality avoidance' to throw people off their growth towards maturity. This can include abuse of cannabis which is a medicine when used properly. Likewise aspirin (ASA) was originally a herbal remedy from the bark of the willow tree but, if aspirin is abused it will soon blow a hole in your guts. Likewise if the medicinal THC is bred out of the cannabis and it is then abused, it will soon blow a hole in your judgement. I'm an old-timer now (I read the first Straight) and, I don't know-it-all but I've been around the block many times and I'm speaking from unfortunately seeing many loose their way and many loose their lives.

You overlooked that fact that someone dies for every kilo of cocaine manufactured, so some lame yuppie can live out some chic urban fantasy they saw in a film or TV in a bar or club. Sometimes it's the innocent that are killed, as opposed to those in a criminal syndicate. That should be paramount in a decision to quit using coke, but that's just me. Also, the billions of taxpayers dollars flushed down the toilet on the war on drugs that has been a total failure. Just imagine what could have been done with that money?

What do people do on cocaine in Vancouver if they're not having sex? Vancouver is far from 24/7, it's a bit dull, really. Weed seems more appropriate.

Congrats on getting clean, though.

Sadly and pathetically true. So the 'choke brain' not only damages the material health of the end user; the bloodshed of genocide and ecocide at its origin in the jungles of S. America also transfers creepy karma to the end users. Of course now days whose to know what's even in those bags of powder be they plant extracts or lab factory synthetics. I'll stay clean & sober thank you and get my high in Mother Nature.

I call it the white hole. Haven't been down the white hole since I started calling it that.
