johnsoninca: I think someone misunderstood the term "heroin abuse support".

vernonFL: Duh. Everybody knows the best place to hookup is rehab or a NA meeting.
durbnpoisn: The driver immediately offered to sell her some Xanax.
scottydoesntknow: [www.wlsam.com image 412x231]Really? This is the guy you trust to support you in your fight against heroin addiction? THIS GUY?!/I'm pretty sure he started the support group to find better connections
durbnpoisn: I met this woman once who had gone to a 30day rehab for addiction to Xanax. The day she got out, there was a limo, provided by the rehab facility, to take her home. The driver immediately offered to sell her some Xanax.Sometimes it really helps to position yourself in the best place to find new customers.
nickdaisy: Serious question. I understand that one can become addicted physically to heroin. Not doubting that. But let's say, hypothetically, there were no more heroin on the planet. A plague came and wiped out all forms of opiates. After the initial withdrawal, would an addict no longer be an addict? Do you see where I'm going with this philosophically? You always hear the "once an addict always an addict" axiom, but is that really true?
durbnpoisn: it's a behavioral issue as much as a physical addiction
Fuggin Bizzy: durbnpoisn: it's a behavioral issue as much as a physical addictionAt least as much. Maybe more. Alcoholism isn't about the alcohol at all, even though it's completely about the alcohol. It's tricky to explain.
Daeva: all im saying is every methadone clinic i have ever seen or worked at is little more than a legla drug dealer with zero interest in habit breaking.
Demonrats: [images3.wikia.nocookie.net image 400x373]You are addicted to drugs./I tried to be an alcoholic, but it turns out that I don't like alcohol enough to become one//Only thing that I am addicted to is my wife's juBBlies
one-in-the-chamber: what I think is funny is how recovering addicts seem to ALWAYS become addiction councilors./even though they *maybe* clean their whole life still needs to revolve around their addictions//they have no skills to offer society other then the fact they were junkies.

Jim_Callahan: nickdaisy: You always hear the "once an addict always an addict" axiom, but is that really true?No, it's not true for any drug. There's potential for relapse, but many or most people that quit are fine after the initial withdrawal, apart from pre-existing impulse control problems that got them in trouble in the first place.AA and so on are quite literally a scam for profit, they have nothing to do with actual truth or science whatsoever.
Somaticasual: one-in-the-chamber: /even though they *maybe* clean their whole life still needs to revolve around their addictionsThis. While you can admire their efforts, if someone's ONLY accomplishment was being and addict then getting clean - it's still a pretty unfulfilled life.
