Re: The Reality about drugs
I think the reason more people check into rehab for alcohol and cannabis is because people abuse more "soft drugs" like alcohol, and less abuse cocaine and heroin. Also, heroin and cocaine are sooooo good; why would you want to stop? You'll will push everybody away and ignore all help to stay with your cocaine/meth/heroin.
I agree that cocaine can do a good lot of physical damage to you, but in the long run. I've done cocaine and quit. There's nothing wrong with my heart, nothing impaired about my nose. I'm in fine physical condition. I wish you'd stop saying to trust you when you're consistently stating facts I just can't agree with.
And there definitely are reasons to need the high. It's true that drug abuse during a time of stress usually doesn't help and does indeed increase your chance of becoming dependent.
