What is your worst experience with alcohol/drugs?

I had a client who allegedly was part of a conspiracy to import 100kgs of pure coke into Australia. Drugs seized at a port in FNQ.

Can you imagine how much cut blow that is? That's a tragedy.
i hope this hero didn't serve time

What shocked me, after renting with a friend who was smoking weed every day. Is how much of a psychological hold the drug has on a person. Such that if I was critical of them using it, I would be shunned and avoided and how they would interpret every event as a reason to use. 'Oh my dad is sick...', 'Oh we won/lost on the weekend...', 'I can't sleep...', 'Stressful day at work..', 'I only have a bit left, so I'll go hard for a couple days and then take the weekend off -> buy more Friday' which to me indicates guilt rather than free and conscious usage.

I doubt it will force anyone to commit a crime, but I think it is addictive as hell, and the social aspect of stoners means there is constant contact and need to offer favors. I remember reading 'addiction is the disease of denial' and I believe it fits the bill.

I think a persons life can become 'what do you do between bongs' after a while.

^100% agree


smoke to celebrate when you're happy, smoke to cope when you're sad. basically any activity you're doing can be summed up as 'hmm this would be more fun high' - from *** to video games to watching cricket!

Tbf, this can be true for any addiction.
