I think this site in some ways is an outlet for my addiction. I am and have always been amazed at what happens when we take drugs. Especially opiates as they (among the legal drugs) made me feel almost what I thought was normal. I see so many people on here that are in the beginnings of addiction and it scares me to think that they have a good chance of dieing, losing their friends and family ect. They believe they are in no danger of ending up like me or worse ie: dieing. So for me I try and give back and learn from the people here because I sure as hell don't have a lot of answers.
I do believe that ORT (Opiate Replacement Therapy) is the way of the future for hard line addicts along with education and councilling, if needed.
I'm not sure if opiate addiction is a disease, although I'm more inclined to believe that it is a chemical problem that we are born with and once the trigger is turned on we start the addiction process. I mean I could go on and on but I don't want to bore anyone to tears or think that I'm some know it all because I'm definitely not, but I'm learning... Dave
