I think this probably happens to a lot of drug users. Once you start doing things high, and you want to share those stories, you have to select which friends you can talk to about it. There will always be friends that are against drug use of all kinds, and then there will be friends that have set a line somewhere as to what is acceptable. For many this is just weed and nothing else and they don’t even consider it a drug.
Once you hit the top of the pyramid which is either opiates or stimulants and are either using heroin or crystal meth, you’ve pretty much dropped off the acceptable friend list for a lot of your regular friendship circle.
I frequently find myself at this stage when drugs have played a part in my mood and my activities but I can’t post those things on my Facebook page or talk to my usual friends about them.
Parents are always worried about their children falling in the wrong group but for me it was the opposite. I became a drugs user and then had to seek out people my mother would have called bad influences. Ironically I find drug users to be socially superior to drunks.
I’m not sure if that’s this is just because we have shared experiences and often mental illness issues that make drug users good chat companions. They appear to be listening and paying attention but you’re high too so you don’t really care. (Grin)
It’s 11:30 on a Sunday and I really need some assistance motivating me to get outside especially since I don’t have enough money to do the things I really need to do so the temptation is to lay in bed and do nothing all day and I really don’t want to do that.
I post messages on the social media apps where I have a profile for Orange Jeff that doesn’t share contacts with my regular friends and clients.
Oh well. Blah.
