Because we are happy that someone trapped in the clutches of addiction could live a normal life.
@Supreme Dalek, Be happier for the people with the self control to not become addicted in the first place
@Supreme Dalek, yeah gervais, so suck on that!
@Praetor, u got over a vicodin addiction after I broke my collar bone and had to take it for pain I fell in love with it and it really took a lot to overcome. Sometimes it doesn't start from abuse.
@Supreme Dalek, and you think a normal life has no addictions?
@funny pic veteran, I never said it starts with abuse. Not to be callous, but you said yourself that you didn't want to give it up just because it felt nice. Mastering self control is when you can recognize that just because something is pleasurable doesn't mean that you need it, especially not when you know that it's potentially harmful.
@Supreme Dalek, does a murdering addiction count? ...I've said too much, I'll click 'next' now
@Praetor, it's not as easy to just give up its physically addictive when I had to finally stop I was the sickest I had ever been in my life. It's absolute hell detoxing
@Praetor, *cough cough* my brother in jail *cough* sorry, I coughed there.
@funny pic veteran, Right, which furthers my point that one needs to recognize that they are using an addictive substance and cease use before becoming addicted. If one actually reaches the point where stopping means detoxing, it means that that they were too caught up in feeling good to think logically and consider the results of their usage.
@Murderin Mike, I noticed. Was there a point being made amongst the respiratory spasms or do you just have a cold?
@Praetor, it's not like the addiction takes months to develop a week us plenty of time and if you have ever had a broken collar bone you would know you're on pain mess for a lot longer
@Praetor, sorry, I'm allergic to going 24 hours without blood of virgins on me
@funny pic veteran, But going into it, you know that you are on a potentially addictive substance, so it's up to you to police yourself. I know that I don't sound all that convincing because I haven't cited any experience, so here's my story: I got into an accident in woodshop once where I basically tore my left hand open, which was horrifically painful. In getting the stitches to put it all back together, I suffered even further, as I am extremely intolerant to anesthesia (in the end it took 6 shots of lidocaine to numb an area only 2 inches wide). Upon leaving, I was prescribed Codeine for the pain. I dislike drugging myself, and dealt with the pain best I could without meds. Eventually, I couldn't use my hand at all, as even contracting the muscles in my finger sent pain and spasms up my whole arm. I resigned to using some Codeine, and took a pill.
@funny pic veteran, It was then I learned how damn good drugs feel. Those next 6 hours were the best I'd ever felt. But as soon as it wore off, I knew that it felt too good. Being drugged like that might make the pain stop, and some part of me wanted more, but I was righteously disgusted at how it had clouded my mind. After only one dose, I switched to ibuprofen and never touched the Codeine again. That is what I mean by self control.
@Praetor, yea I was supposed to be bed ridden for a few weeks cause I also featured 2 ribs and bruised 5 but I had work and school so I was taking it just so I could even get out of bed and function somewhat normally and codeine is a lot lighter than hydrocordone. I'm not arguing that it's entirely the drugs fault and people always need to be able to say no, just it's not as easy as people who have never suffered play it off as and not understanding just how fast the addiction develops and how much of a hold it will get on you
@Murderin Mike, Respect man, I get that too.
@Praetor, I'm not addicted. I just really like the smell of cocaine
@Supreme Dalek, oh stfu
@Praetor, every now and then i like to say if i had anymore willpower i could be the next green lantern
@Praetor, lets be happy for all people the same because each one is strggling.
@funny pic veteran, know what you mean man congrats
@Praetor, codeine is way easier to come off than hydrocodone or any kind of oxy
@Jg20, I never 'came off it', because I never got roped into it
@Praetor, I did and I understand what u are saying about never let yourself get like that but you don't know what the highs are like codeine isn't enough to get a strong opiate high. In my opinion the best and worst drug in the world is opana (oxymorphone) 3-4x stronger than herion. When you do it you don't care about literally anything, everything just seems fine and coming off of it makes you feel like you're dying. Sweating when its 50 degrees cant eat or sleep everything hurts. Looking at that I can see why you say what you say but you don't know the high and you don't know what it's like to be in withdrawals that bad and to know what can fix you
@Praetor, heroin is nothing compared to it snorting I can't say about using a point but I've done both and can honestly say heroin should be legal befor oxymorphone
@Praetor, and I'm not trying to make excuses but it can grab anybody I graduated high school with a 4.0 27 act score and full ride in college and spent to years on it until I got arrested on felony possession and that was my wake up call after that I got clean on my own and won't do it anymore but I can sympathize with somebody that is on it
Ricky Gervais everyone!
@Oddew, okay, okay, really? REALLY? All he has to do is insert periods and gets a like?! *peter griffen voice* oh, good for you, GOOOOD for you. *squints*
@Murderin Mike, What the hell, I got a like?!
@Murderin Mike, *She, by the by...
@Oddew, yes you did. But, seeing as how nice you are, I'll give you that like back.
Ricky Gervais is by far one of my favourite comedians along with George Carlin, Kevin Hart and Russell Peters. Which comedians do you, my fellow community members enjoy listening to that give you a good laugh?
@Racist Arab, Tim Minchin and Jimmy Carr are my 2 favourites
@Racist Arab, louis ck and bill burr hands down
