the herald has done a profile on three p addicts..normally i point sticks and laugh at mainstream media treatment of the drugs issue…riddled with inaccuracies/prejudices as it often/usually is..
but, speaking as someone who has tried most things and been addicted to a few nasties, the herald is right on the money in their depiction of the degree and pace of harm done by speed/p..
believe me folks, speed will fuck you up more than any other drug..you can recover from addictions to most drugs..but speed and alcohol are the ones that chew up brain cells/fuck you over, in the longterm the most..ex-speed addicts do not recover their mental faculties..the harm done is irrepairable
and i’m talking as someone who’s alltime fave was heroin and cocaine mixed and taken intravenously, over a period of years; so i do consider myself an expert (of sorts) on this particular topic….
it actually blows my mind when the “experts” on this subject pooh, pooh the dangers of recreational use of meth..especially that ex-junkie/smack dealer from canterbury university who gets wheeled out on a regular basis, (and who incidently was my “man” for awhile there..way back when..)
he’s talking a crock…and has got it so wrong…
