Drugs Are Bad

Okay, I'm convinced. Drugs really are bad for you.

I blame Mrs. Thatcher. When the hippies and the anarchists and the musicians were running the drug trade, they would never let you get like this. The profit motive has spoiled it for everyone.

If you don't believe me, take a look at Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones, the world's most elegantly wasted human being.

He's sixty-four years old, and he looks a lot better than your grandpa, doesn't he? And he gets to hang out with cool guys like Johnny Depp, climb trees, advertise Louis Vuitton, and still gets on with his day job.

So, if you want to take drugs, make sure you have a lot of money, a good doctor, and a good lawyer. And some really nice friends.

If you get into drugs because you're unhappy, messed up in the head, want to escape, or even worse, want to be popular, they won't help you. They'll just make you worse.

Here's two videos of Amy Winehouse from a few years back, when she was talented, curvy, and damned hot. I feel deprived.

It's hard watching people kill themselves.
Just is.......

what I don't get it how someone's somewhere is not doing more about it

whether she wants them to or not

if she does die, a lot of people will

well, actually - she has to want to "get better" is the truth of the matter

that recognition is sometimes harder than the journey to recovery

(probably more than sometimes actually)

I think her dad's done his best for her, but her husband seems to bring out her self-destructive streak. The latest reports are that she's split from Blake and is dating someone new. We can only hope.
