There is so much that can be said related to drug and alcohol. There is no safe haven from this formidable avenue. It takes lives, destroys families, bankrupts a person’s finances, robs their soul and creates criminals. Is there anything good that can be said about this subject? Sure, drugs are beneficially used, at times, to treat infections or combat cancer. Alcohol is helpful when used as an antiseptic. That is about the only good I can think of to say on this topic.
First, let’s take a look at alcohol. Alcohol has been claiming lives and families for centuries. It literally dates back to Biblical times, Sodom and Gomorrah. God destroyed these cities due to corruption and alcohol abuse. That should say a lot about alcoholism in itself. God felt the need to totally dissolve this cities and alcohol played a major role in this decision. I’m sure that there is a lot of drug and alcohol related issues during Biblical times, I’m not even aware of, but this one came to mind initially.
Now, to take a closer look at the drug part of this synopsis. Native Americans and the era of the Stone Age are well known for their use of drugs and alcohols, medicinally. There is a lot more expansion to the drug portion of the drug and alcohol issue. Drugs have affected something like 80% of the households in the US. Does that sound a little crazy to you? We’ve managed to take drugs to a whole new level. There are various as sundries of drugs as well as a large variety of ways to do drugs. Do you want to get really amped up or become really, really mellow, like passed out? Maybe you would prefer to hallucinate or have convulsions. Perhaps, you’re really into throwing up, if so, opiates may be your gig. As for the numerous ways of partaking, one can snort, eat, smoke, inject or even be absorbed through the skin. We’ve really managed to use and abuse drugs in the USA. Doctors, lawyers, coal miners and the homeless have found ways to use drugs and become dependent on them.
Drug and alcohol rehab. Centers have become an enormous industry. There is so much help available to all walks of life; there is really no excuse for anyone who does not seek help. We’ve all seen someone go through addiction and lose so much. They always feel as if they are stuck, and almost always require a nudge to seek help. However, anyone with any common sense can see the destructive pattern on their lives and are foolish not to seek help at some point. Please, don’t be a statistic and lose your life to drugs or alcohol, seek help and beat the odds.
