    75% of millenials claim a “quarter life crisis”. What a bunch of candy@$$es! :rolleyes:

    Very few of these kids have experienced true “hard times”...& they likely comprise the other 25%. Most of these snowflakes weren’t taught right from wrong, are soft as marshmallows, overly entitled & have a jacked up view of “reality”. :buenrollo:

    The most enraging and pathetic aspect of the "Opioid Epidemic" is that 100% of these pills were prescribed by a licensed medical doctor to a real life patient. The patient usually becomes chemically addicted within one week, the doctors continue to fill their prescriptions as long as they pretend to be experiencing chronic pain, they sell a certain percentage of the pills on the streets for a large profit, thereby addicting other people, fill their prescription, get high, sell some pills, and the cycle goes on and on.

    Having never smoked, drank alcohol, or ingested any drug stronger than Ibuprofen in my life, addictions both fascinate and disgust me. I've seen every episode of the A&E show "Intervention," which is currently covering the extreme opioid problems in Georgia in a mini-series...

    You wanna dance you gotta pay the piper. I'm about sick of these junkies and tweakers (meth is huge around here).

    Oh boo hoo you got hooked on something you knew was addicting and now you want my sympathy.

    I got an intervention for you. How 'bout a bullet in your ******* head you piece of ****.

    A rare CF rant from The Hock.

    I think you're being a little hard on your white brothers. That pain pill addiction thing is different then some guy going out to buy stuff to get high. A pain pill addiction starts with an injury and then a doctor, someone you trust, prescribes the medicine. I guess you could just say 'put up with the pain' but for a lot of people that's the only way you can keep working. And why go through life in excruciating pain?

    Yeah for a person in chronic pain are whatever by all means whatever it takes to relieve that pain.

    But come on, most of the heroin addicts out there started out just getting high with a friend already and now lo and behold they're junkies. And certainly the meth heads fall into that category. No doctor ever prescribed meth or anything like it. Tweakers just used it to party and they got hooked. They're a big pain in the ass around here, living under bridges, stealing, and leaving dirty needles laying around whatever patch of earth they're polluting with their presence.

    At least the opiate types have the decency to OD sooner or later. The tweakers just keep going and going and going...

    actually a crap ton of kids in the 90's were overprescribed adderall, which is not too much different from meth. Its 4 different amphetamine salts. I'm sure that has some sort of impact on a developing brain.

    You can't just lump everyone into the same category. Some people got into drugs to get high, some people had legitimate pain and were prescribed opioids. Then there was a crack down where doctors get in trouble for prescribing it, even for people in serious pain. When you are on these drugs, serious pain or not, it alters your judgement. Some patients can have self control, others not so much.

    also, glorification of black culture desensitizes youth to drug use. 90 percent of rap contains some garbage about using or selling drugs. Unfortunately, this is the genre many White kids listen to.

    Saw a stat online mentioning US Veterans deaths.. Apparently a recent analysis concluded that there have been over 120k suicide deaths among veterans since 1999... Stat seems way to high but if it's true, it's incredibly sad. Even if that number is exaggerated "experts" have concluded Vets have 50% higher rate of Suicide than average American . Any of you Gentlemen have input on this? My take is truth lies in between and still far too many deaths.


    Original Analysis

    Here's ((WAPOs)) take on it.

    Also fully understand The Hocks viewpoint . No community should have to be plagued by drugs, violence, and tweakers. This once considered inner city plague has spread to White Rural areas as well and as evidenced by this thread is wreaking havoc in our communities.

    As Thrashen pointed out and Dixie said, Opoid crisis is a damn shame. Personally known at least 10 kids that Overdosed between my brothers class and mine and we're not even 30.

    Also see Flints point. Some may legitimately need pain pills for injuries. Though I'd rather see that treated with cannabis.

    But flooding a small town in West Virginia with over 20 million pills is by design to exterminate small town America.

    I don't know if ya'll remember, but I was diagnosed with throat Cancer two years ago. I was given fentanyl, oxycodone and or OxyContin for pain. Throat Cancer treatment is brutal and I was advised to use these drugs to help as needed. I had never taken any drugs in my life and I was stage 4, so I just listened to the doctors advice. I thought I was a pretty tough guy being a Marine an all, but coming off those drugs was the hardest thing I'd ever done next to going through radiation and Chemotherapy to the throat! As Flint mentioned this can start with and injury, etc., and I can see how some people can become addicted. I thoroughly believe in some cases, doctors over prescribe! Thankfully, with the help of the good Lord and my family, I was able to wean off of those drugs. It was like being hit by a truck everyday for about 3-4 months! Very difficult to get off of them! I just went for my 21st month check up and I am still Cancer free! It'll be two years in May, which I'm told is a big hurdle with this kind of Cancer!

    Wow, those are the hardest opioids that can legally be prescribed. After you first starting taking these pills, who many days did it take before your body became chemically dependent? Every TV show I watch about opiod addiction states that it take 6-7 days to become "hooked." I was just curious if that was true.

    Also, it's great to hear that you're cancer-free!

    Good to hear you're cancer free! Your post gives some insight on how one can become addicted to these drugs.

    Over the past 10 years, I've seen every single episode of the A&E show "Intervention." The vast majority of addicts featured on the show seem to have a similar backstory that typically falls into one of the following categories:

    They were raised by a single mother who was never around.

    They were molested/raped as a child.

    Their parents were drug addicts and/or alcoholics.

    They were a teenage girl who had abortion early in life and suffer from regret.

    They were kids who moved to a new school district and "fell into the wrong crowd."

    They were a "white male construction worker" type who was injured, prescribed opioids by a doctor for pain, and became addicted.

    They were a married man/woman whose spouse left them, they became depressed, and developed addiction problems.

    I don't think I realized if I was hooked or not? When you're going through Cancer treatment with radiation and Chemotherapy to your throat, it affects a lot of things in your body. I was so sick that I literally thought I was going to die. Chemo is poison and it makes you very, very sick. It affects your memory and thoughts and your ability to analyze. It stiffens the joints and muscles in your back and neck. It, the radiation and Chemo fries your saliva glands! I don't have much saliva at all. I have to constantly drink water. I have to drink with almost every bite I take now. You really take for granted your saliva when you have it. Saliva helps with the break down of your food as you swallow. Imagine trying to swallow cardboard with no saliva! There's so many side I affects, but I won't go on.
    As I said, I had never taken any kind of drugs before. The first time I took and Oxycodone or Oxycontin, I remember the room started to spin and I told my wife, I didn't like the way it made me feel, but the pain was awful! After I was finished with my treatment, I had to continue taking the drugs until I started to heal. After about 3-4 weeks my doctor took me off the fentanyl patch and I began to feel terrible. Like I'd been hit by a truck. I guess that's when I realized I was hooked, dependent, etc.. So he, my doctor put me back on a patch with less dosage and just gradually had to wean off of the patch. Then, I tried to quit the pills, Oxycodone, etc. cold turkey and the morning after I had quit, I couldn't get out of bed. I mean I did, but again it was like being hit by a truck. I don't know how else to describe it. You just can't function. It was the worse feeling I had ever had in my entire life. It was as bad as the radiation and chemotherapy. So, again I had to gradually wean down from 2 pills every 4 hours to 1 3/4, to 1 1/2, to 1 1/4... all the way down to nothing. It took about 3-4 months and again it wasn't easy. I had to put time in between my dosages also and when you do that, you feel terrible, but you have to suffer through it to get to the next dosage. It would have been easy to go and pop another pill to feel better, but you'll never get off of them unless you do what I did.
    In fact, I know a guy in my area who went through the same thing six months before I did and He asked me if I had any left over pills, that he would give me money for them. Obviously, I didn't comply.
    So, yes I can see how people can get hooked. Fortunately, I had my faith and strong supportive family to help. Many people may not have the support, but ultimately you just have to make up your mind that it's not going to beat you!
    Thanks for the well wishes. There's no doubt that someone here on this site will eventually know or run into someone who gets throat Cancer. It's almost at epidemic proportions now. One of the fastest growing Cancers among men.
    If there's ever any way I can help, just let me know.

    CS, it’s heartening to hear the great news of your continued clean bill of health. Hearing your story is both frightening and inspirational. Lesser men would have succumb to one or both of your battles. Thank God for your fortitude to fight tooth and nail against both.

    Your story is invaluable information. It could literally save the life of someone who happens to read it. Thank you for that.
