An addict like myself

An addict like

An addict who like myself all first chose to get high ford different reasons really, I mean I started because I

am in the total belief that experimenting or trying
everything one time is how
you go through life at least
if you want to live it, I mean I
wanted to see for myself
what the hell the hype is all
about I mean a war? On the
same people who have
created it? That is really absolutely absurd like law
enforcement watching over
themselves, no damn
wonder we have so many
innocent people in jail, I
mean if you sat down and
read the Rico act they
themselves should be
arrested and put away the police are the epitome of a

gang, they break more
laws that all of us combined,
See when they get pulled
over, oh here is my badge so
that means I get a free pass
a get out of jail a free card
hell I would like to shove
that badge so far up their
asses they would need a
partner to stick his head
up there, hey wait they do
anyway ,so back to being
an addict you see in my very
short life I would say I have
tried just about everything
including way too much
food, sex okay well that I
never get enough of that so
if anybody wants to help, and porn but in reality I have
made a lot so in actuality I
am director and act in my
own films, so, I would
consider that a job not a real
problem see what I mean
excuses to make it sound
more plausible, for those
who out there listening to
anything I have to say, next
we got gambling that I do
not have why, I mean why
waste money on a gamble
a maybe hell don't get
married I found when I can
give her the money and it
is a sure thing, so what my point is addiction does not
only mean drugs and alcohol it could mean so
many things, in fact did you
know that most addicts are
actually addicted to more
than one thing at a time, it
is a disease that nobody can
cure because they do not
care or believe in it I mean
before I was an addict I
never believed it because I
am what they call a
functioning addict and
normal addicts do not like
us because we give them a
bad name but only usually
in a hypocritical way, see we
break it down to names out in the streets, you have the
pill heads who think because
a doctor can prescribe them
the legal medication it is
okay and they are not breaking the law, well no it
ain’t dumbass he said take
one a day not twenty-five
and pot heads hey smoke
weed or marijuana and get
by with the munchies and a few friends and dope heads
or tweakers going one hundred and fifty miles a
minute plus just like they are
stuck in fast forward while
hearing the trees whispering
their name or talikng to
rocks and then we have the
junkies because they put
junk into their veins and well
let me tell you that is one
high that scares the hell out
of me because I like it way to
much, so I do not do that
very often haha just kidding.
Now are you getting a better
understanding? Because I
have really have just begun
you see it is all a mind
altering getaway from the
All the issues and problems
that are plaguing us all every
day because they or we have
decide the we give up to a
world that does not care
about us only the bottom dollar called greed, anyways if they truly cared they would help cure what they created
  instead shaming us and
locking us away from drugs
that they made in the first
place creating a disease
that has no cure, think about it would you take a cancer
patient and throw them in
jail or somebody with diabetes, NO, so help us find
away to end addiction, that is
all I am saying now I am
done talking about what an
addict is because like they
say knowledge is the key to
Successfully not getting

At least it has been for me anyways.
