MaudlinMutantMollusk: Fentanyl always strikes me as a self-solving problem


One might think, but clearly it isn't.  And now it comes in fun colors and flavors, you'd have to be stupid not to have some and share it with children on Halloween.

Great, now Halloween's ruined.

A propos of something, I've been rewatching the series, Fringe. Great show if you can churn through the archaic 20+ episode filler seasons. Anyway, in an ep I just watched, they were trying to fight a rage virus. To buy time, fentanyl gas was pumped into the HVAC system. I thought, "Killing everyone is kind of a cure."

I had a minor outpatient surgery yesterday morning, I asked the anesthesiologist what meds they'd be using as I'm a naturally curious person and he replied versed, propofol and fentanyl. I couldn't help myself to jokingly ask if it was the new fun colored ones.  He either didn't reply or the propofol took effect and I have no memory of the rest of the conversation.

That's a great way of minimalizing it until you're the one going to a funeral like I had to this past week.  So tell me, is addiction a choice or a disease?

I have never understood the razor in an apple or thc gummy bears and Halloween.

Do people have so many drugs and razor blades that they decide to share with children?

I get hating kids, my neighbor's spawn are assholes who ride their bikes across our yard and ding dong ditch our Ring, but wanting to harm them? Never.

To paraphrase Steven Wright, it's the only disease you can tell at people about.

Sorry for your loss. Truly. When I got out of rehab, I was one of only two alcoholics there. The rest of the 200 campers were opioid addicts. I made a couple of people who could have been really good friends. Both ODd within two weeks of getting out after relapsing. Goddamned nightmare.

Drug addiction is tragically real but I doubt dealers are marketing their pills for Halloween distribution. Kids want Snickers and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, not unmarked tablets of fentanyl. And what kind of dealer is going to give away their product for free?

Can it be both?  Does everyone with a compulsive behavior disorder end up on the wrong end of your recent funeral experience?  Can addition start as a choice and end up as a disease?

Zeb Hesselgresser: Can addition start as a choice and end up as a disease?


No. No one chooses to be addicted. 99 times out of 100 there are several underlying issues, including mental health disorders and child abuse experienced by the attic. Alcohol and drugs bring relief to those who are suffering. They are trying to escape something in their lives. The issues go far deeper than just choosing not to be addicted.

I go the opposite direction. I'm not terribly fond of children because I cannot remember my childhood (legitimate loss of memory due to momentarily dying when I was around 8 years old) and I just can't relate to kids on a kid-level, so I just end up seeing them as either enigmatic little weird creatures that do inexplicable things, or I regard them as tiny adults who scream too much.

Anyway, in order to ensure that the neighborhood kids don't fark up my yard, steal my shiat, or "prank" me, I give out full-size candy bars on Halloween. The good stuff. No shiatty cheap brands. No "fun size" or crappy Smarties and candy corn. I give out Snickers, Hershey, Kit-Kat, Reese's PB cups, Twix, and other full-size candy. I build a cool Halloween display in my yard, too.

After that, the kids yell at and beat the shiat out of each other if one of them messes with my stuff or tries to give me grief because they know if one of their number makes me hate kids, the good candy stops coming. They say "Leave him alone! He's cool. He gives out the best stuff at Halloween!" to the other kids.

Yeah, it's a bribe. I'm essentially paying protection to the local kid mafia. But it works. They don't touch my yard 364 days of the year, and on that one special day they're happy to see me and on their best behavior. Because full-sized candy is always an offer you can't refuse.

I've even considered using one of my cheap projectors (I have a collection) to show Ghostbusters or something else on the street in front of my house. One day, I hope to scrape up enough to get several of the full-size skeletons plus a couple of the GIANT 12' or 20' skeletons. I think having a massive skeleton sitting on top of my house would be cool beans.

Most opioid addicts I've known started out being overprescribed pain meds. When the scripts ran out or became too expensive without insurance, their addiction brought them to street drugs.

My personal experience with alcohol was/is I was self medicating for anxiety because without insurance, the cost of therapy was prohibitive. I can drink socially now, but I'm still careful not to peer over the brink.

Delawhat: Great, now Halloween's ruined.


It's been ruined for decades now, and its not because of all the drugs and razors in our candy. It's just lost... something.
 
2022-10-01 7:51:57 AM  
The potentially deadly drugs were seized on Sept. 24, along with a ghost gun and about four pounds of cocaine, according to the Pasadena Police Department. The department says the candy-colored fentanyl appears to be a new method used by drug cartels to attract children and young people.

Anyone who wasn't already on the side of severely reducing police funding needs to consider this statement as compelling evidence that they deserve it just for being this farking stupid.

You don't understand it because it's not something that ever actually happens.  Every year local news stations rehash the same tired myth and warn parents to watch out for things that aren't going to happen.  No one is actually handing out fentanyl pills or thc edibles to kids on Halloween, that shiat is expensive and you're 100% guaranteed to get caught.

Also, ding dong ditch on a Ring doorbell?  Do they not understand that there's a camera pointing right at them when they do that?  It's like caller id to prank phone calls.

The downward spiral of addiction when interacting with drugs and alcohol is:

1. Fun
2. Mostly fun, some problems
3. Mostly problems, some fun
4. Problems

Non addicts will reverse course at Step 2 or 3. "Whoa, maybe I should ease off on doing X so much and in these situations." They can take it or leave it. Addicts continue to Step 4 and stay there, always chasing the feeling they had during Step 1 and getting themselves further down the hole.

Addiction is a symptom of disease. Usually mental illness caused by trauma like childhood abuse (physical/sexual), growing up in poverty, PTSD. The problem with treating addiction like a disease is that it ignores the underlying cause. Treating the symptom helps but unless you uncover and treat the cause, there will be relapse.

They did a survey of the addicts on the DTES. They found 80% were molested/beaten as children and 80% had some sort of organic brain disorder. They OD narcan it up. And repeat sometimes several times a day.  This is common where I live.

The toxic drug supply here kills more than COVID did at its peak. Parties of weekend warriors just bumping blow at a party: 5 ODs 3 dead, 2 recovered. This is common where I live.

Opioid addiction can also result from over prescription. Like what happened to Mr. Nonsense when he was a child! They gave him oxy at 15 for an injury. He weighed  under 100 lbs and they gave him an adult dose for months then cut him off cold turkey.  The withdrawals sent him in a spiral and luckily his mom sent him to rehab right away. This used to be common but drs wised up to the evils of opioid over prescription.

Addiction has many facets. Just saying no isn't a viable option for the mental injured and suffering. Fentanyl isn't a self solving problem like the previous poster said because our society continues to churn out broken humans. A never ending despair creating machine.

I hate how they're saying that the different colored pills are to attract children. It's actually to inform people that the pills are fentanyl. Everyone knows they're supposed to be blue, if they're purple/yellow/whatever then people know for sure that they're not pharmaceutical pills and to be aware for fentanyl.

As their investigation progressed, police learned that Ronald O'Bryan was over US$100,000 (equivalent to about $550,000 in 2021) in debt and had a history of being unable to hold a job.[21] In the ten years preceding the crime, O'Bryan had held 21 jobs.

Fentanyl is one of the cheapest drugs mass produced. The theory is that they're using it to cut b/c the old fashioned "cutting w/ flour/corn starch/etc" was too obvious when the user wouldn't get high enough.
