I always get sad when I read about drug overdoses. I personally know two people that have passed away from it. One was accidental, the other was on purpose. Either way, I get very down thinking about it and what their families had to go through after. 🙁 I always get scared that my son will try something when he's older and that something will happen to him.

Keep on talking to him about drugs and the bad things they cause and do to a person.  If you keep an open conversation going, hopefully he won't ever do this.  I know I talk to my daughter all the time about drugs.  I'm hoping that she never decides to try them either.

Constant guidance will help ensure that your boy will follow the right path and not try dangerous drugs. Don't overdo it too because the child might rebel and would try doing drugs.

Many people do not know this, but with drugs that are not prescriptions (street drugs) even taking them once can kill you.  It sounds absurd, but you cannot know what is in the drug before you take it unless it is given to you by a pharmacist and prescribed by a Doctor.  I think most people who die from a drug overdose either intentionally planned it, or simply were not aware of how much they were taking because they were so high.  Plus every human being reacts differently to a drug even prescription drugs.  You should always try to stay away from drugs unless they are prescribed to you and you take them as your doctor/pharmacist ordered.  Drugs can help people who need them as a medicine.  Recreational drugs are troublesome and usually take you momentarily away from reality.  Most people cannot control the time they lose to do recreational drugs and become addicted and then their lives become horrible.  They lose the money they need to survive, sometimes their homes, their jobs.  It's not a nice picture.

Hello Stranger

So yeah, I'm 22 years old, Im a guy and I'v Overdosed at least once and been hospitalized (actually just the other day, kinda why im posting this) But i have been on and off doing drugs for almost 7 years now, I moved from starting with pot, mushrooms, extacy, into doing MDMA, ketmine (this is my fix, also the root of my overdose) and cocaine, and then started experimenting beyond the normal into new vices, I got big into ketamine esspecially when partnered with something acid and/or cocaine which is a really quite dark but beautiful combination, the euphoria from the coke/acid combined with the dissasosiation from reality from the K allows you enter this dark ego driven mindstate which when you are allowed to get too comfortable you can make some very poor choices.

A year ago my addiction reeally caught up to me for what i think was the second time in my life, I was broke, homeless, addicted and living on my parents sofa (due to the unfortunate circumstance of being robbed at gunpoint because i was selling drugs at the time), Now I was still trying to sell the stuff but i was really just doing it whenever i got the chance. The tollerence rate for K is quick to rise so even though i was stocked it didnt take me long to get through it all and then i found myself in the middle of a pretty shitty withdrawal kick, that combined with some pre-existing medical conditions, and a minor numonia bug i was carrying landed me in a coma for 4 or 5 days, and came out with memory loss, with a breathing tube down my throat, unable to talk, move, eat, drink, piss, shit, or even be able to sit or write..... I stayed for 3 months in a hospital a ferry ride away from my home with barly anyone but my own thoughts and the daily nurses.

 

You'd tink that would be enough of a scare to learn but no, this last weekend, just over a year from my last spat, I was celebrating with some friends for a buddys birthday, Let me first say [NEVER DO DAY 3!] I started off fine, a fun night of drinking and music with a little substance, sun comes up, keep going, head outside polish off some whisky out in the sun with my mate, head in, did a little GHB and K (one of the many poor choices i made) this fucked me up so i went and rested for a bit, got back up and went to the living room where we were back at the drugs (this is hitting the 2 day mark for no sleep so we are all pretty gone, i spent the night getting high on anything i could get up my nose and after a little everyone passed out and left and i drank a last cap of the GHB to go to bed with my girl. She eneded up asleep already so i just decided "hey im having a good time, whats one more night?" I got out the last of my K and a little M and I got really high, wandered around a little changing my mind at every opertunity, by now i was gone and i didnt know it, with no sleep, no food or water my body said "bed" which is the bodys word in that state for "dead" I went to bed and had what i thought was a lovely reality but really a slip of time and a dream and woke up to the familier site of a nurse getting all up in my face. well needless to say iv learned my lessons from these experiences although i feel i have OD'd before several times and just never realized what was actually happneing cause i had never been told thats what was happeening, a simliar tie occured following a bottle of whisky and a small mountain of ketamine 2 or 3 summers ago.

Anyways. I understand your concern for you son, I have given my parents enough greif through my life that im surprised they are as stable as they are today, but thats kinda the thing, you almost need to experience and hear some of those really bad things cause they do exist and it makes us appriciate the good things for what they are and not dwell n what they are not.

Im sorry for going on and on, I hope someone reads it and takes something from it?

It's really great that you shared this with anyone who has an addiction problem.  So it goes with addiction to anything, once we are addicts, we are addicts for life.  And while some are blood born addicts, it matters not.  The only solution is to face the reality of this terrible illness & try very hard every day to acknowledge & overcome.  You can make the same mistake a trillion times, be in & out of rehab, hospital & as you described even go into a drug induced coma.  Yes, the people who love you are at a loss.  They worry, but honestly it's up to you to keep reminding yourself of how it just messes you up each time.  The cravings are always going to be there.  As addicts we use any exuse to use.  A small problem, several difficult situations during the course of the day.  Life ain't a bowl of cherries, we know how stressfull each day can be.  We have to fight against our desire to escape from reality in a different & non harmful way.  The war on drugs will never be won.  Drugs, & dealers will always exist.  We cannot control this fact.  We need to focus on control for our own life.  We know it's out there & that its available, but it's not the substance' fault that we have no self control.  We need to ask for the courage to change what we can in our lives & really truly want to do that.  It is most certainly a daily choice.  It's good that people are at least being open like you have been and disclosing their truth of how drugs have affected them.  I think for most addicts, they feel so alone & unable to talk to anyone about their troubles.  For anyone reading this post & previous ones, know that you are not alone & that you need to stop and remember that your problem does not make you a bad person.  It's just a problem that you need to address on a daily basis.

Keep an eye on your son, in the meantime do discuss the side effect of drug overdosing or non prescribed medicine, which can be a eye opener for your kid at a right age, but don't force anything on him. I can advise you not to get worked up with these issue, rather being vigilant can help you to fight back.

yeah your right, overdosing to drugs, can affect your life, your relationships, and it can take a life in an instance, so better move away from drugs thats not prescripted to you.

Well i would say that it is completely disappointed that one of our close buddy passes from this kind of situation but what i personally suggest is that one should need to be constantly give possitive thoughts to them.

For basic wounds, for example, a sprained lower leg, or
broken wrist you will invest hours holding up in the ER and get hurried
administration and get an extensive bill. By heading off to a prompt
restorative consideration focus (IMCC) you will get help snappier.

Try to talk with him about the drugs and their effects. Tell him that once addicted to the drugs, then it will be very difficult to come out that situation, also drugs taking in excess amount cause numerous side effects. Sometimes it will kill individual.
