Life does not Rewind

Advertorial

A friend’s cousin, young, straight As, never had a boyfriend, took her life by jumping off a building. After her death, her mum kept dreaming of her returning to tell her family that she regretted the decision the moment she pushed off the ledge.

There was a sickening feeling in my gut when I heard that story. Can you imagine the thoughts racing in one’s head as you face death? Life does not Rewind.

In life, you’ve done much and accomplished many. I am a positive person and I have no regrets but deep down inside there are some nagging feelings where I wished I could turn back time, especially with relationships. Even if I am not a time traveler, at least that is no big deal if life doesn’t rewind. However, if you are addicted to drugs, it is often hard to climb out of the dark pit and it can sometimes lead to death or effects irreversible.

We first smoked meth on New Year’s Eve because we heard it was great for sex. I had to work the next day and so saved some to smoke before work in the morning. When I got home another g was waiting for me and I smoked every day but one until I finally quit three months later. For three weeks we smoked meth with little consequence, then my skin became fragile and in addition to breaking out, started to swell. I was really worried because I was constantly thirsty and drinking water, but I rarely urinated. Then my kidneys started hurting. I had lost twenty pounds in two months and my husband had lost thirty, and we’d read somewhere that rapid weight loss can cause kidney failure. I slept every three or four days for an hour or so and woke feeling rested. I was an hour late for work everyday. My husband wrecked the truck three times. One day I forgot to feed my son. Everything was either the highest of highs or the lowest of lows, no in between existed anymore. We were banned from the sauna at our apartment complex because no one else could use it. Our sweat smelled so strongly of ammonia it burned the eyes, it was caustic, and it burned our skin too. My husband and I haven’t done any drugs at all for four weeks, and things are slowly going back to normal. But I still want it. I can’t sleep tonight because I want it. I wrote this in all honesty mostly to help myself, to remind myself why I don’t want it.

Methamphetamine also known as “ice”, “Crystal” or “Speed” is odourless and colourless. Friends who persuade you to try drugs may tell you the feel good sensation you may experience. But they didn’t tell you it also increases heart rate and body temperature, cause fits, stroke and damage to heart, nerves, liver and kidney. There is also abnormal behavior with mood swings, confusion, delusion and hallucination. Did they also mention all drugs are addictive?

About 10 years ago, I bought my third trip from a guy in my home town Norwich (UK). It was a “strawberry” and I was told it had been double dipped. The guy had a reputation for selling good acid so I happily gave him my cash. I took the single LSD tab in the late morning in a positive state of mind with no worries or anxieties. I began to come up on the acid towards lunch time. Outside it was a glorious sunny day. The LSD rush started blazing up my spin and racing through my guts, I felt a little uneasy with it but had enough mind to allow myself to just go with it and wait until the rush plateaued. I was having a wonderful time, watching floral Escher type patterns breathing over my skin. I vaguely recall deciding to go downstairs for some reason then the next thing I recall was waking up on the floor of the dining room. The first thing I noticed was that there were blowflies buzzing around a bowl of cat food on the kitchen floor. I remember feeling perplexed as to why both flies had two bright neon rings in red and blue. Somehow I navigated myself through Norwich during the busy lunchtime shoppers and began to head in the direction of the city’s central park. If you could imagine for a moment being surrounded by people in a busy place where their heads had been removed and replaced by Squids and Octopus you might begin to accurately picture the scene confronting me in the park. Everyone had tentacles smothering their faces and dangling down their necks like fleshy snake beards, even the women and children were not exempt from this disfiguration. In retrospect, it was the worse day of my entire life. It was the closest I can imagine to having full blow psychosis.

Don’t be fooled or na├»ve if someone passes you these cute blotting papers. Imprinted on cartoons or colourful designs, the tabs can either be taken orally (like eating the mint film sweet) or placed on skin areas that readily absorb the drug into the bloodstream.
I hope this post has made you aware of drug abuse. Play the games, win the prizes and live life healthily!
