Abusing The Ties

Abusing The Ties

A Poem by Aliciaa Gay.

substance abuse and the one's who avoid it.

Beautiful pain
Sacred meaning
Weed isn’t a drug
It’s all a dream
Natural to grow
Only normal high
It’s okay
It won’t help me die
Idiot choices
You fail the test
There is no way to overcome it
Feeding your addiction
Until your brain is finally fried
Giving up your life
Is that how you want to die?
Come on dude
It’s just one drink
What do you want
Your friends think you a geek
It’s not like it will kill you
Only make you fly
With this in your system
You can dance all night.
A name we all know
Get behind the wheel
Give the people a show
Killing a bystander
Is how this will repay
It doesn’t matter though
As long as your okay.
Dancing in the night
Your liver is dying
But it’s okay
It’s worth the ride.
Just a needle
Poke it into your veins
It’s heroine
It won’t drive you insane
Moving faster
Than you’ve ever known
Come on dude
Give it a go.
What wrong with you
Getting your thrills
There’s more things to life
Than your cheap thrills
Giving into pressure
Some kind of plight
I thought you were better
That old guy
A little white pill
It’s a rush
All sorts of colors
Mixing at once
An unending party
In your head
You’ll see
Just pop it down
Don’t worry
It’s on me.
It’s quite alright
I’d rather pass
I value my life
Running from problems
Life is to extreme
Don’t you ever
Turn your back on me
Giving into pressure
Your not alright
Turn around
It’s never to late
To put up a fight.

Author's Note

Aliciaa Gay.
There is a high rate of suicide in alcoholics and drug abusers. The reasons believed to cause the increased risk of suicide include the long-term abuse of alcohol and drugs causing physiological distortion of brain chemistry as well as the social isolation. Another factor is the acute intoxicating effects of the drugs may make suicide more likely to occur. Suicide is also very common in adolescent alcohol abusers, with 1 in 4 suicides in adolescents being related to alcohol abuse.[9] In the USA approximately 30 percent of suicides are related to alcohol abuse. Alcohol abuse is also associated with increased risks of committing criminal offences including child abuse, domestic violence, rapes, burglaries and assaults.[10]

Drug abuse, including alcohol and prescription drugs can induce symptomatology which resembles mental illness. This can occur both in the intoxicated state and also during the withdrawal state. In some cases these substance induced psychiatric disorders can persist long after detoxification, such as prolonged psychosis or depression after amphetamine or cocaine abuse. A protracted withdrawal syndrome can also occur with symptoms persisting for months after cessation of use. Benzodiazepines are the most notable drug for inducing prolonged withdrawal effects with symptoms sometimes persisting for years after cessation of use. Abuse of hallucinogens can trigger delusional and other psychotic phenomena long after cessation of use and cannabis may trigger panic attacks during intoxication and with use it may cause a state similar to dysthymia[citation needed]. Severe anxiety and depression are commonly induced by sustained alcohol abuse which in most cases abates with prolonged abstinence. Even moderate alcohol sustained use may increase anxiety and depression levels in some individuals. In most cases these drug induced psychiatric disorders fade away with prolonged abstinence

Left me speechless. It's....wow. Taking a stand against drugs and alcohol is something I'll always do. It's so hard, to convince someone who does them that they're wrong.

Interesting. True, people are idiots trying to get thier cheap high's and thrills and trying to get others to follow. I think we should just let the foolish die, but protect the innocent from thier corruption until they croak.
