Message from Josh M. -OH in Nice Respectable People Group #general
so many people look like that in urban areas
at least in Seattle and Spokane
like, a lot of these drugs are supposedly a rural problem, but go to a bus station in a big city and 🤢
Methy whites are a depressing sight
I live in a rural area with multiple trailer parks and somehow I don't see nearly as... uh... problematic people as I do in urban areas
Meth is awful. Please never do it and help your family if they are addicted.
You don't need to convince anyone in here, lol
I have a friend with drug problems. Wish I could help him but I honestly don't know what to do with him.
Why do people do meth in the first place? I genuinely can't comprehend hurting myself like that
You life sucks and you just say "fuck it" at some point
I'm so sorry about your friend, Jacob. It sucks to feel helpless.
I think they mostly have to help themselves
Remember when Trump suggested killing hard drug dealers
Have any of you seen the movie 'Trainspotting'/
Whatever happened to that
Honestly, it sucks even seeing people get sucked into marijuana. Like, it's supposedly not harmful, but it turns previously fun people into apathetic losers.
If I were a parent, and my kid were addicted, I'd do what they did in that movie. (It's non-violent but it's spoilers, so I can't say)
Duterte style drug enforcement
Do we have any members from Mississippi?
Every friend of mine whom I’ve tried to help kick their meth use told me they all started with weed, then you gradually move to stronger stuff, shrooms, cocaine, heroin, etc... you are always seeking a more intense high. And they said meth is much cheaper than heroin or cocaine.
it's so creepy how defensive they get
I'm not encouraging it but LSD is physically safe and gets someone high out of their mind for 12 hours at the price of a movie ticket
My mother and father recently got medical marijuana just to smoke and not be bored. Nothing I can do to dissuade them.
And a lot of people start doing Meth because they are self medicating so to speak, so there are some bigger underlying issues
The point being
Trying meth is dumb
I have a friend with really bad pain who uses marijuana. In that case it's kind of understandable.
But when people use it recreationally and go like "dude it cures cancer" that's just retarded
depends on the opioid
I’ve taken in friends who were addicted through the years, to try to help them out and it never turned out good: they’d steal from me, lie, I’ve spent many nights driving around looking for them in shady parts of town, bailed them out of jail, etc
The "hardest" drugs I could tolerate under any circumstance are psychedelics since they're not physically addictive and theoretically serve a non recreational purpose
There's a reason they call it "cope".
I think Evola tried psychedelics
Again not encouraging it
I like smoking weed. I don't. But I enjoyed it when I did. Never did any hard drugs. That's for losers.
There are some people I know from HS that never got past the stoner phase and are stuck as losers.
