He's not saying he's an expert. He's been pretty careful about not giving people specific advice on individual drugs. Sub is a very very dangerous medication and if you do mix drugs with it you're asking for trouble. I try not to start drama on here but I've seen beach reply to many posts with helpful advice, but I haven't seen either of your names?
Step back. We're all here of our own accord and are TRYING to help support each other to make things better in our lives. You are certainly welcome here to call for support from others who can relate with you, but that sure as sunshine doesn't give you free license to come in hear and cut wide open on those you encounter. Yes, it is a forum, but c'mon! If the question is that totally out of your venue, or you've got nothing insightful, informative, or even encouraging why not exercise a bit of self control and follow that old addage - if you've got nothing nice to say.....
One of the first persons on this forum to make me not feel like the heel I damn well knew myself to be for putting myself in to this current position happened to be Beach. I have no doubt that Beach can hold his own, but your flippant attitude really chafes my backside. If it was you, instead of those like Beach, that I had encountered when I first got here I could very well not be where I am. You're negativity is putting off those who have better things to do with their time than have to thread through your nonsense. Knock it off.
wonderfully said. I am the most open person you will find when it comes to opinions that are respectfully stated but I have no patience for immature, flipant comments that are meant only to antagonize. I think people like this ****-a-whatever the name is have nothing to add and although their comments just show their lack of knowledge and lack of intellect, they can be harmful by turning away new people who need help. With all that said, I would hope that he/she will return once they get their life together and be able to participate in a helpful way.
