Hello ironhead70 and Grantmetheseren,
There are times that hope alone won't solve our problems.Hope,without effort,rarely returns results.
I think back now and I can't even count on my fingers(for there were none) the amount of times that I loved the feeling of drugs.
It made me paranoid,more talkative and left me wanting more and more.
Know that the euphoria only exists because the drug is entering the bloodstream.Once there,the entire body feels a certain way.
That euphoric feeling you speak of,is just an illusion,which is meant to take you away from your current concerns and make the drug appear to be your only priority.
Realize it's a feeling meant to distract,more than please.It only "pleases" the senses for a few moments and that's all it takes....buy,buy(pun intended) troubles and worries.......momentarily.
You'll come down and want to chase that escaping feeling once again and you never quite get there....next thing you know,your money's spent,the children are sad and your relationship(if you're in one) has been severely compromised,if at all salvageable.
I may not have done it all but i've done(cocaine and crack),heard(from reliable sources,who provided convincing evidence) and witnessed(through personal experience and observation) enough sorrow and misery to overflow the deepest abyss.....many times over.
Please take time;even a little here,to take a look at what i'm saying and it may one day(and hopefully soon) make a believer out of you.
