Only one more dose, then nothing. No more drugs!!
He looked at the message on the iPhone,” What happened, did you get any money? Should I get you stuff tonight?” And breathed out loud.
He lowered the sound of the TV and turned on the laptop.
He had no answer to give, neither had he known if he would find the money.
His mother didn’t have any more money, she used to say so all the time, but in some magical way, she always managed to clear him and his father had already left a generous sum for pocket money on Saturday. And the club, does not give him the same wages anymore.
It is already Tuesday and his wallet is empty. Trying to think of whom he can borrow again, to whom he will owe this time.
In the beginning he was saying excuses, “you know how it is, buddy, mother can’t do well by herself” or “the old man has no money to give” and that sort of thing, while crying, who knew that would be convincing to his friends, who had money.
Later however, it became obvious why he needed those f… money, because without them, there would be no pinch. And without it, he wouldn’t escape himself.
He wouldn’t see the magical dimension that all things have, when he looks down with the vacant eyes.
He delves into the closet of his mother, something valuable might be still tucked away to “kill”.
Last month, on his birthday, he sold a gold necklace which he discovered and with this money and what could be lifted by his girl, they managed to get a fine one.
He is seventeen years old now and from the day he started to use it, for almost two years, he never stopped.
He didn’t just wake up one morning and decided to become an addicted junkie!
A curiosity at first, an invitation then, that was enough.
“Get in the group, be cool, and don’t bother. You got this, it doesn’t have you. ”
He started with “buttons” that he combined with a lot of alcohol, until he dropped.
It was good, because the mind was emptying of anything that bothered him and he always felt unsure of himself. During a party, the same way he found his job at the club, he tried cocaine for the first time. That’s it! He had been thrown in the universe!
There was a period in which he did use quite often, but he didn’t have a full picture and understanding of the concept of dependence. Until then, he used cocaine to feel better, “climb”, “trip” “get high”.
When this was done, he started to look for increasingly larger doses, always wanted to reach a cloud further up, so he started experimenting with dosages and raised his wages working in the club, that guaranteeing safe money, but also easy access to cocaine.
Until one day the cocaine itself was not enough. He lacked the feeling, that intense rush.
Heroin wasn’t yet part of the deal, eventually he tried it too, with the known exhortation: “Come on dude, only one dose, how much harm can it do to you?”
When he hit one dose, they probably hit it to him, the first injection, he vomited and felt awful, but soon he tried again.
Heroin was abruptly hooked up to him like a passionate lover. The rush that “hit” him and the way he asked for more heroin, as if he was deprived of air, that was the way that trapped him.
Now he uses drugs because he cannot survive without them.
The entire day is consumed in finding the dose. He gets stoned for the entire afternoon.
Upon the old couch at home of his girl, staying still and sharing the silence, the waste.
In the evening, he goes to sleep with heroin. Because sleep does not come without the white touch.
The pain comes, the chills, perspiration that collars to sheet, tears and problems, huge Cyclops holding him tied to a sharp rock. He is in a prison. He hits his head on the wall constantly but does not lead anywhere.
There is now a plaque or a taste, a habit-matched his personality. It is not just a necessary daily activity, it is now a way of life.
His folks do not seem to fully understand the problem, they may not want to see or feel, his mother is so lonely and weak, how can she realize living in her microcosm, his own horror!
He will have to quit it, it has dominated him, but it is very difficult to stop. Once again, just one dose, then the end, he is thinking while he is getting ready to go out. ”
Cocaine creates the greatest psychological dependence of any drug. Irritating centers of the brain associated with pleasure, it creates extreme euphoria. Tolerance to cocaine develops quickly, as the user does not find the pleasure he found before, with the same amount of cocaine.
Heroin derived from opium and is the strongest derivative, having a purity of about 80%. It was first prepared in 1898 by the pharmaceutical company Bayer, Germany, and sold as a treatment for tuberculosis and also as a pharmaceutical treatment for addiction to morphine.
Unfortunately, the data regarding the use of drugs, are worrying and fully reflect reality.
Greek children, boys and girls from early teens, are experimenting with drugs, alcohol and smoking. One in ten students have used drugs “once” or “sometimes.”
On average, therefore from 13 years of age, the majority of Greek teenagers will “acquainted” with all sorts of harmful substances.
During his 15 years, when a child, with the onset of puberty and the known anxieties and concerns, falls into drugs, he is dragged on a road with no easy return.
For his salvation from the nightmare of drugs, he will need to make a huge struggle and without sure result.
Therefore, attention should be focused on prevention.
Battle and struggle within the family, in society, at school, in all the factors that are responsible for the education of children, to enable them to cope with all the dangers on the key steps of life.
It is said that kids who fall into drugs, only come from broken and troubled families. Surveys show, however, that any child may use drugs, even out of curiosity, by the attraction of the forbidden or as a demonstration dude.
It’s amazing how many people make use of white powder.
“The truth is that nobody realizes the risk and the risk of making untested medicines, “said John Ramsey, a toxicologist at the Medical School of St George in London.
Unfortunately we live in a society that is sick in whole. Not resisting and not shielded.
In a society where a teen can find drugs very easily and a chink of optimism hardly…
But the fight against drugs is the duty of each one of us and all together, so we should by all means try to prevent their dissemination.
