I won't hate on you,I'm not condoning it but I have tried it. Watched some very good people deteriorate. It keeps you awake and kills the feeling of hunger which are Two of the biggest problems homeless people deal with. I'm sure I'll get hate for this but I'm just saying I get it that's all.
Took me a long time to come around to this. My nephew who was murdered last year was a full on tweaker, kid had a heart of gold. Just got stuck on a substance he always talked about quitting.Dont judge people from the drugs they do. Only give them insight as harsh love if that recreation becomes harmful, and dangerous addiction.
Yes, there is definitely a divide...I want to liken it to the difference between homebums and travelers, but I'm not sure it's that simple. Still, I feel many "homeless" people still feel they have a home in their towns/cities, just not the one they would prefer.That movement is started, but I think there are still some distinctions between the two, no?
Us locals call it Methford, OR
That is an epic story. I've heard so many that echo the sentiment, unfortunately. First of all, I sorry for your loss.Took me a long time to come around to this. My nephew who was murdered last year was a full on tweaker, kid had a heart of gold. Just got stuck on a substance he always talked about quitting.
He actually died fighting off a dude who had just gotten out of prison for stabbing a woman, dude went back and attacked the same woman, nephew grabbed a bar and got the guy off her. He was stabbed over 30 times, the guy is only getting 12 years and able to get out in just over 9 years with time served in county. Doesn't seem right, they said that bar made the difference.
Point being though, he smoked dope but he was a soldier for a good cause. I'll never judge someone based on their drug of choice again. My tone above may have sounded judgy but the reality is I was just spittin facts about the long-term.
Same. It turns people into zombies. It takes away your humanity.I can't understand why anyone would do it. I mean I absolutely get what you're saying. Curbs appetite, you can stay awake longer when it's difficult to find places to sleep. There's many reasons but you have to purposely ignore the long term stuff we all know comes with meth use. If all that terrible shit didn't always come with it I probably would have tried it myself.
I can't help but consider the future though. Do I want to end up like every tweaker I've ever known? Definitely not. So I'm not even gonna try it. The "positive" reasons don't outweigh the negative. Unhealthy as fuck, twitchy, scabs all over their face, teeth look like they tried to bite-stop a chain saw, nobody trusts them, the list goes on and on.
At least in my area, the heroin and meth leads directly to theft. They have to support their habit, and let's face it, on meth or heroin, the person can't be trusted because they'll do anything, lie to anyone, hurt anyone, steal anything, to get their fix. I don't trust that kind of desperation. I've seen people on meth and heroin, not a pretty sight. and it's really difficult for me to feel sorry for people; like, hello!!!! you tried METH. Wtf did you expect. I don't trust obvious users.I appreciate this post. As it seems much more useful that the "I fucking hate tweakers" thread.
I'll come out and say it. I've done meth a few times. I'm not ashamed of it....however, just as with any substance you have to know your limits, and if it works for you.
Meth didnt work for me. As others have said, "The up ain't worth the coming down".
Seriously, besides trying Oxy the one time I did (worst come down ever of my life), meth is a close second. I have never wanted more of that shit after coming down.
I've done alot of coke, as Matt stated, it started to get cut with BS, and it scared me. I like coke, it's a fun drug, but yet again, I've never wanted more after coming down.
I think this has alot to do with me being on Amphetamine as a child diagnosed with ADHD.
Now. To the tweaker issue. From what I see, tweakers are usually people that have either
A. Been dealt a shitty hand in life and have turned to something that makes them feel better about it. Which ends up becoming an addiction.
B. Do not have a great sense of self control and even though they KNOW they shouldn't do it, instead say "Hell! Just this once...then maybe twice....then maybe for a week...ect"
Tweakers usually arent bad people, they are just choke-holders by a substance. Same with heroin.
I knew a girl that went from aspiring single mother, to dead, in three months from using. It's very sad.
Dont judge people from the drugs they do. Only give them insight as harsh love if that recreation becomes harmful, and dangerous addiction.
Also, to the most important subject....
Can we please start a movement to say HOUSELESS instead of HOMELESS!?
and at some point, employers find out and fire the indivdual. I lived in a tweaky part of AZ so saw it all the time. They're good until their erratic behavior gets them fired... then they still need a fix.I did heroin and meth and I never stole anything. In fact I was working two jobs to support my habits. What a shitty life that was!
