Heroin AKA Smack, Boy, Girl

Kurtcobain

Today, I learned, another that I have known, has fallen victim to a disease for which there is no cure. It is a disease that can attack it’s victims for decades or even just months or minutes before its fatal grip reduces life to nothing but matter. Every victim starts out thinking they can control it and they lie to themselves more and more as the disease gains control over their being.  As the disease advances the victim becomes insane and grows to love the disease while disregarding everything else.  The victim becomes hopeless and fears living outside the diseased world they are imprisoned in.  There is hope in recovery for the victims, but far to many fail to find the answers to what ails them.  Their loved ones often learn of the disease after it is to late.  If they do figure it out in time, they see no rational reason to how a victim can allow themselves to lose control, and their conclusion usually results in anger and confusion over the victim they care for and the disease. Most do not even realize that it is a disease and blame the victim for it, and without the knowledge it is quite normal to think the victim is weak or just plan dumb as  heck.  There is hope through intervention and love.

#32, you will be missed by those that  cared for you, and your memory as others I have known will help drive me to educate others on the treatment needs of addicts and to educate addicts that there is a proven, effective way out of the diseased world they are currently inhabiting.  Narcotics Anonymous is not a cure, but it does hold the answers, to an effective path, to living a clean life of recovery  away from the dark paths of addiction. The only requirement to attend is that you want to quit.  Being dirty or clean has no bearing on you being welcome.

This disease has taken the lives of many artists or caused them to take their own lives. If only these artist could of been enlightened to a path of recovery.  How much more of their talents would we had to enjoy. How those that loved them must of grieved to have lost such talent from their own inner circles.  I am hurting today for those that knew #32 and Colby.  This post was with them in mind.

Have a blessed day. Fill your hearts with kindness, and be thankful for today.

p.s. two more days till this weeks underground band of the week is posted.

    • I only know one thing, and the world you are in, is not as great as the world you need to be in. The pain from injury, leaves an addict in a terrible position. I don’t know if there is a fair answer for those in your situation. I do know that with God and Christ all things are possible. If you obey him, and truly allow his will to take over your life, there is a world that is no better in the universe. Pray hard for him to enter your heart and give you the strength to follow his will. Addiction is a disease, it is not your fault. Focus on what you can control, and work on leaving those things you can’t control alone. With God, all things are possible. He promises us many blessings if we obey. I have found with him, I see many blessings around me, that before I was blind to. I will pray for you. That is the greatest gift, I could ever give.
