*sigh* Kinda bummin, here, and need to get it out. Thanks for letting me ramble for a minute or two. Over the past 10 years or so, I have seen a few friends fall victim to the vicious cycle of methamphetamines...have seen them lose their jobs, their families, their possessions and money, their health, and their freedom. Yesterday my friend Rob got busted for delivery of a controlled substance. I have known him for about 6 years. When I first met Rob, he had a beautiful and nice wife, a great job, and lots of toys. He was kinda shy, sweet, and didn't party a whole lot. Then he decides his life is boring, and started doing crank...drinking...sneaking around behind his wife's back....and I did it right along with him (the crank, not the sneaking around thing lol). Lucky for me, I pulled my head out of my ass and realized I was gonna lose everything if I didn't stay the hell away from the shit. Rob ended up divorcing his wife, and started totally changing into a different person. He lived for the white shit; couldn't get enough, and his whole personality changed. For the past couple of years I haven't even been able to relate to him in the same way as I used to...he is aggressive and just not the same person at all. He has nothing now...only a pickup to drive, and a shitty job (he is very talented in the field he was in when I first met him..but lost that job)..and basically homeless half the time. I am so sad tonight, thinking about how sweet he used to be and how much he has to offer, but he doesn't see that. Now he has this shit come down on him, and I hope it's a wake-up call for him. It has broken my heart to see the person he has become, and he is only 28 years old. Thing that gets me, he is very anti-marijuana! We have had heated discussions about that; now, tell me, have you met anyone who has lost their teeth or their sanity or their bodies due to excessive POT use!??? No, I think NOT. Damn I'm so pissed at him right now! And sad. That is all. I am done rambling. Thanks for listening.
