Title: Smoking/drug/alcohol addictions
Post by: Croconaw on May 04, 2016
This could apply to lots of things as well (including fat people.) But it appears to me that smokers, drug addicts and alcoholics are more noticeable.

2 friends of mine are only 14 or 15 and yet they are already smoking. They smoke like, AT LEAST once a day. And they post on Instagram as if it was something nice or to be proud of. I feel bad for them. But they're my friends, who am I to criticize/judge or to interfere into their lifes? I'm only sad, nothing against them. I'm older, 16, yet I don't do that to my health. Maybe they're having emotional problems and need that to feel better?

I mean to be honest, it's only natural for you to want your friends to live healthy lives, no?

Yes, and I want.

If you're looking for more, I can not do any of that.

I would never smoke or do drugs, and I am too young to drink.

Something i notice is that a lot of people don't realize that addiction is a thing that tends to be indicative of a far deeper psychological issue.

I have issues with alcohol and marijuana dependency, and recently just got off oxycodone because i took it for too long. When you're an addict, it's just... a part of you. You need something to fill that empty gap, and guess what's waiting just around the corner?

So yeah, they do need help. It's not a choice as people seem to think, but an indicator of a whole lot worse.

I think people should be treated equally on the health care issue, addiction goes beyond choice in lot's of cases.

Something else i'd like to add on, but forgot to in my initial post. When you're a kid, it may seem like a choice. Hell, i thought drug and alcohol addicts were stupid and wasting their lives doing that kind of thing, because i didn't know any better. I vowed not to do that kind of thing because my grandma had alcohol issues and ended up dying over it. And then i grew older, and everything in my life combined with a bunch of untreated mental issues started building up, and i felt empty and dead.

And then my godmother introduced me to alcohol and weed, and then i started going for those because i needed something to fill that empty space in me, no matter how harmful it was.

Don't think you're safe just because you vowed not to do it. You never know what will happen, and it can happen to anyone, regardless of choices.
