prescription drug abuse
Too much money and too much choice. Drugs feed off a rampant ego and an absence of self. The finger is too readily pointed at the drugs or the alcohol or the porn as being the destroyer but the truth is, we destroy our own lives.
It saddens me that for many who don't have a support network or the finance to see a therapist, they will be handed a box of pills to chemically alter their mood or thoughts.
Children's games that encourage kids to use drugs for every minor or temporary complaint are not harmless fun. They are insidious in that their influence is creeping, hidden and wrapped in cute and cuddly packaging. They pave the way for a tacit acceptance of prescribed and even non-prescribed uppers, downers, relaxants and stimulants.
