Hey all :)

I just wanted to give a reminder to all our members here that if anyone pm's ya or asks ya to share or sell any of ur medication, please tell one of the moderators. Now I know ur probably thinking.....of course I would jenn.....but u never know, some of us would say no to the person but not make any waves by telling a mod, especially good hearted ppl who may feel bad for this person's situation. But please tell one of us if ur approached because nobody should ever be asking around for ur medicine.

And for the ppl who is thinking about asking someone for their medicine....don't do it, this is not that kind of forum.

I hope everyone has a wonderful day :)

U guys are awesome!

Thanks Jen! Maybe my perception is biased, but I have had so many patients who got in trouble after doing well for a LONG time... I'll have a patient who didn't use for a year, then the one time he/she buys heroin, it is a sting or they get busted on the way home. I've wondered why it happens so much-- maybe the person isn't as careful anymore, or maybe the person doesn't have the same connections or instincts...

But when it happens, the person always says the same thing-- that things were going SO well, and they escaped 'those days' without any felonies... and now they have THIS to deal with.

It just isn't worth it. Felonies can be overcome to some extent, but if you don't have one, count yourself as lucky... and don't take the risk.

Hey all,

Dr J's post reminds me that there was poster name pope maybe the last night or so (that's been deleted, thx) that offered a long list of opiates for sale. While not my first thought - it did cross my mind - is this a sting? A set-up? Why not go to where vulnerable folks are? I did not show him the door bc I knew a mod soon would -- and did.

Also, Dr J's post reminds me and all of us to covet our clean time and to remember that temptation shows up at ANY time...

When I see posts like these which are asking for drugs I feel a lot of sympathy for the people who post them. To be so desperate... I can remember the days though I would never have thought to bought online.

I think Dr. Junig's observation about how people who relapse become clumsy at obtaining drugs after a long stint in recovery reflects something biochemical in the brain. I once heard that the actively addicted brain changes not just directly in response to the drugs themselves but also to the acquisition of them. People literally become more intelligent at planning and obtaining their drugs and these changes are reflected at a biological level. So maybe there's something to it.
