  1. 4 grams a week? Pah. Social user. 4 grams a day, you’ve got problems.
    Not saying I’ve ever seen the point of it. Apart from seeming to instil self confidence in people don’t have any. But hell does it make them rabbit. Endless hours of unexpurgated bollox. One can see why it’s so popular with mejah people…

  2. “on speed dial” – how antiquated!

    Of course, merely having them in your phone’s list of contacts doesn’t sound quite as exciting. Even if it’s exactly the same thing.

  3. So she stopped using around the time she was 27? So about the time her dealers weren’t willing to give her some for a blow job?

    OK. Glad we got that sorted out.

    It is odd how the substitutes for religions we no longer believe in still look like the religions we no longer believe in. This is immediately recognisable if you put it in a southern rural American accent and add some “I have sinned!”. Sincerely expressed of course.

  6. If an alcoholic is always an alcoholic no matter how many days they’ve been without a drink, isn’t a drug addict always a drug addict?

    On that. Asis you can’t be an ex of either.

  7. Yes, BiND, addicts are always addicts. They can be in recovery, have multiple years of sobriety, but the possibility of relapse is always there. Getting clean is the first hurdle. After that comes staying clean.

  8. £200 a week, as Mr in Spain says, is not much. Your proper addict will spend £100-200 a day. All begged, borrowed and stolen, of course.
