Remorse for Celebrity Drug Addicts

I'm just posting this to say that I give a two thumbs up to many celebrities who have overcome addiction, and I will have a soft spot for those who are still struggling.

We all know what its like being pill addicts/alcoholics/substance abusers. It has messed up my finances, and I'm sure some of yours too. Imagine having ALL the money in the world, and SEVERAL suppliers that give you what you want? Or doctors that NEVER say no to you? Just because you are rich? Disgusting. It can seem like there is no way out!

Lindsay Lohan is the most recent case. She is being sent to jail for three months, (for substance abuse) and she doesn't know how to stop..I don't think putting an addict in jail for that amount of time works, Lindsay needs treatment. Her friends have turned her against her family who have her best interest. It's been said her mom has been supplying her. Many who have not been in her/our shoes are so quick to judge. And they do not understand.

Michael Jackson, last year lost his life to Prescription pills and sleeping meds. Corey Haim as well. The list of so many who have lost their lives to drugs goes on and on. Their addiction got the best of them, and they have shown me that I MUST cut out people who supply me!!  I will NOT die from these pills! (Vicodin). I want to live, and I deserve to live!

If you have run out of money because of drugs, count it as a BLESSING!  It's a sign that you have an option out of this pain and suffering that drugs have cost you. If you have hit "rock bottom" you can pick yourself up. Now is the time.

If people Like Oprah, Robin Williams, and Drew Barrymore, and ESPECIALLY Whitney Houston who are millionaires can overcome their addiction and claim their lives back, SO CAN WE!!

Lindsay Lohan got the jail time as the judge said her apologies were not sincere.  I am sure they will have her doing some sort of aftercare in jail.....

I believe they gave Lindsey 90 days in inpatient rehab after she finishes jail.  I do feel for them, and I feel for the many, MANY people from all walks of life who find themselves in this situation.  It's like a silent epidemic in our society.

I'm just glad I'm going through my withdrawals as a free woman.  Gatorade and my favorite movie with my my pets on the couch?  At my service. Would I like to take an epsom salt bath?  Don't mind if I do.  Gotta count your blessings, because they are always there (even if you have to look harder some times than others).

I feel like one of the celebrities,I'm not rich but in Australia I could get my DOC codeine over the counter at a chemist for $10 for 40 tablets,and no records were kept so I could go to as many different chemists in a day as I needed,that's what makes it so hard to stop here,It doesn't break the bank,it's affordable and easy to acquire.But I'm 316 days clean.

You really don't want to,like I said it just makes it so much harder to get the resolve to quit,I ended up with liver damage because of the abuse of codeine,because I stopped as soon as I was told about the damage I was doing to my liver it has repaired itself.In Australia people are fighting to change the laws so accessing these drugs will be made harder.It is stupid to be able to get these drugs without even seeing a doctor.

I was only kidding Denise.

I lived in the UK several years back, and had ready access to codeine, but it never really crossed my mind to go there. I was having too much fun working for the I was working for at the time.
