Texas brawler and addict hated God, ran from Him, until a final surrender March 2, 2015 roman gutierrez By Michael Ashcraft and Mark Ellis
*originally -> http://www.assistnews.net/index.php/component/k2/item/302-texas-brawler-and-addict-hated-god-ran-from-him-until-a-final-surrender
“..Roman grew up on San Antonio’s west side, where drugs and violence were pervasive, the child of a broken home. He was sexually abused at age seven. He became a fighter and a partier who lived recklessly because he hated life.
The rage following his dad’s death was only compounded by the fact that he received the news when his dad was supposed to pick him up for some father-son time. His was a life void of love.
His first arrest came when he and friends broke into a local convenience store late at night to steal alcohol. Since they heard no alarm, they carted off case after case. Eventually, a patrol car pulled up and nabbed the youngsters…”

Is Marijuana Addictive? | Marijuana
•Feb 24, 2013

The addiction to drugs like heroin, nicotine which is in tobacco, and even caffeine which is in coffee are far stronger on a chemical physiological level than anything that we’ve been able to document withdrawal from the use of marijuana.
The classic addiction that we imagine is addiction to opiates or injection drugs like heroine. You imagine the cravings. You imagine you get so sick if you don’t have the medicine or the drug. You go through chills. Your nose starts to run. Your eyes water. You’re sick to your stomach or vomiting and diarrhea. That’s called withdrawal syndrome.
Then there’s something called tolerance and that’s where you need more of the drug to achieve the same effect. Then there’s the addiction. The psychological compulsion you’re orienting your whole life around trying to find and procure this. Your personal, your social, you functioning suffers as a result.
That is our model of addiction. And then depending on how socially available the substance is, like for example tobacco is available everywhere, so people will very rarely experience all these withdrawal syndromes versus is your drug addictive choice as an opioid that’s hard to get, you’ll see varying degrees of behavior on the spectrum.
When it come to marijuana, we’ve tried to look for withdrawal syndromes. They talk about mild sleep changes. For people who have been using it heavily and then stop using it. EEG disturbances, little change in your brainwave pattern. Little bit of difficulty sleeping. Little bit of anxiety or reduces mood which kind of dissipates over time. Not that same all of a sudden change in your physiology where you’re extremely sick and can’t function. Also there’s no life threatening nature what-so-ever like there is when you withdraw from Valium or bensodiazapines which the withdrawal can kill you. Same thing with alcohol, withdrawal can kill you. Nothing like that with marijuana.
The main thing there is the behavioral and social conditions that would set up with a compulsive use pattern, prohibiting it, doing things on the sly. It turns out some people psychologically do report improved psychological function using the substance. As you would expect because the compounds have been shown to have anti-depressive qualities, anti-anxiety properties. So it’s possible when people are no longer using it abruptly that they revert to a state that might have previously been their prior state. Which was more depressed and more anxious. Though that’s always something to consider as well if you’re wondering if a substance is a withdrawal syndrome or really just a withdrawal of and agent that was helping improve the psychological functioning.
The bottom line is there have been studies done that they try to find what percentage of users of marijuana become addicted and they quote this figure, 9%. The Institute of Medicine does. Those are based on surveys where you have to answer questions like, “Do you spend a lot of time looking for this substance?” “Have you faced legal problems because of your use?” A lot of those answers might be more related to the social phenomenon of really trying to stamp out the use of marijuana rather than any actual chemical or physiological dependence or addiction on the drug.

The first time I quit marijuana, it went something like this: I had been smoking for ten years, then was arrested for an unrelated charge( don’t ask), and went to jail. I knew I could get mj if I wanted to, but 1. I couldn’t trust any inside sources and 2. There were better things for me to spend what little money I had on. The effects of quitting after ten years of use? I slept most of the next few months( 12-16 hours a day). I was seventeen. I stayed clean for the next 23 years with only one exception. And no effort. ..

I have always tried to seclude myself from everyone. Ironically weed brought me closer to people but I was okay with it because I was high. I was obsessed with gaming as well… still do enjoy my ps3. Although now I have a clear enough head to keep a job and get into college.
On a side note, another thing that wasn’t good about my personal experience smoking weed; was that it lead me to other drugs. It really is a gateway drug if you let it be one. …

Hope you don’t mind me asking, are you lonely most of the time?
Coz I find that usually people who see marijuana as addictive are usually lonely. Loners tend to cling on something and make it addictive, like gambling, gaming, weed smoking, etc. I used to find World of warcraft very addicting, until I got bored with it and looking for my next “fix” in gaming. That was until I got out and do stuff… ..

Does cannabis really lower your IQ? Claire Mokrysz Thu 14 Jan 2016 10.24 EST Last modified on Tue 9 May 2017 13.32 EDT theguardian.com
“..Cannabis use does not occur in a vacuum. And teenagers who start using cannabis from a young age will almost certainly differ from those who will never try, it or who delay until they are older. The evidence suggests that those who start using cannabis from a young age often have less stable backgrounds and more behavioural problems than their non-using peers. Teenage cannabis use also typically goes hand in hand with other drug use and risky lifestyle choices in general. The poorer cognitive performance of cannabis users may therefore result from other factors associated with cannabis use, rather than cannabis use itself. However it is of course very difficult to control for all these other factors…”

Beware of Secondhand Pot Smoke
Secondhand Marijuana Smoke no-smoke.org
“…“Smoke is smoke. Both tobacco and marijuana smoke impair blood vessel function similarly. People should avoid both, and governments who are protecting people against secondhand smoke exposure should include marijuana in those rules.”
-Matthew Springer, cardiovascular researcher and Associate Professor of Medicine, University of California, San Francisco ..
Secondhand marijuana smoke contains many of the same cancer-causing substances and toxic chemicals as secondhand tobacco smoke. Some of the known carcinogens or toxins present in marijuana smoke include: acetaldehyde, ammonia arsenic, benzene, cadmium, chromium, formaldehyde, hydrogen cyanide, isoprene, lead, mercury, nickel, and quinoline.i
Marijuana smoke contains tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the active chemical in cannabis….’

How to Approach a Hash Addict drugabuse.com
“…Hashish is a very concentrated product derived from the cannabis plant. It has extremely concentrated amounts of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and other cannabinoids, the active ingredients in the cannabis plant. Individuals can develop a level of physical dependence to THC; in fact, cannabis use disorders, as well as the symptoms of cannabis withdrawal, are well described in clinical literature and diagnostic manuals such as the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders – Fifth Edition (DSM-V). In addition, many people who use hashish display the same types of obsessive and dysfunctional behaviors associated with other substance use disorders. Thus, the answer to the question “Is hash addictive?” is that the odds favor a “yes.”..”

Coca-Cola’s Scandalous Past Sara Bellum
March 01, 2012 teens.drugabuse.gov
“…Coca-Cola was invented in 1885 by John Pemberton, a pharmacist from Atlanta, Georgia, who concocted the original formula in his backyard. Pemberton’s recipe contained cocaine—in the form of an extract of the coca leaf, which inspired the “Coca” part of the beverage’s name. The “Cola” in the name comes from the kola nut, which contains caffeine, another stimulant…
Pemberton advertised it as a patent medicine, claiming that it cured headaches, upset stomach, and fatigue. “Patent medicines” were concoctions of exotic ingredients and drug compounds that allegedly cured a wide range of ailments. They often contained ingredients now recognized as addictive substances, including opium and cocaine, as well as deadly elements like mercury and lead…”

My work as an Addictions Therapist at the Caron Treatment Centers in New York City involves seeing people who have had profoundly negative consequences in their lives as a result of taking drugs. Sometimes they think that just because a drug is natural, because it grows in nature that it’s safe. That’s absolutely not the case. An example of this is Salvia. People think that because it comes from a plant that it’s safe. Well in fact it’s not. Salvia is a hallucinogenic, which means that it causes psychosis. It’s a very fancy way of saying that people detach from reality. So they’re not existing in reality once they’re under the influence. They’re existing in this other state which causes them to do a lot of crazy things, and causes them to engage in a lot of high-risk behavior. It causes them to cause a lot of damage in their life. So it causes profound negative consequences in a person’s life. And just because it comes from a natural plant doesn’t mean that it’s safe

Adderall is classified as an amphetamine that is highly addictive. It is a drug that can be prescribed to those who have ADHD; however, it is highly abused by university and college students. It is called the “study drug” for those who abuse it because it increases concentration and creates intense invigoration and euphoria. This video looks at Adderall and how it works both in the body and in the brain.
It is also important to emphasize the mental health aspect of this video. Studies have shown that students try Adderall due to stress. We want to help students to understand the dangers of Adderall. We can help them manage their stress so that they would not depend on Adderall or to help fight their addiction by outlining some resources available to them.
