My friend just died. No kidding. Stay away from everything. I was always trying to pull him up out of that lifestyle and for a while he showed promise. He had the most potential of all my friends and I looked forward to seeing his future unfold. But it's over. He will have no family, no kids, nothing else. His story ended abruptly. The rest of that group are still alive and doing the same shit. Hopefully his death will wake them up.

Goodbye bud. I'll miss you.

Thanks. Just found out a few minutes ago that he had already OD'ed in the past year with another friend who had administered narcan. Also just found out that he died alone. I'm upset that he didn't learn a lesson the first time but I know how this shit is. Still upset. Very upset. He was like a brother for a time.

I suffered from my abusive alcoholic father throughouty childhood and beyond. There were many other contributing factors that created a sort of perfect storm of shit. I'm 31, never had a GF, women never found me interesting or even seemed to try to know me. They all seemed interested in me as much as I could entertain them with nights out, concerts, dinner,... And then quickly lost interest because I've always been and certainly now thanks to social rejection... I will remain a social outcast. I'll never have family, kids, wife, house,... And I've only done alcohol and cannabis. The cannabis now is my medication for my anxiety and stress which has seemingly increased over the years. As I realize more and more that I'm trudging through this miserable capitalist existence and I don't even have a reason for doing so like EVERYONE else. Apparently all I have is to not die, and if lucky no more than another 20yrs in this miserable existence.

So how do I fit into those statistics??

Trauma ruins lives, drug addiction is simply one of many symptoms.

This will sound gay as fuck but try it... Plant a garden. Really. I was more or less where you are and that was a colossal change for me. So nice to make and tend something and be rewarded. IDK.. It is so valuable. I have chickens and rabbits now as well. I love to just go chill in my rabbits little yard. I sit there on the bench and drink a beer just about every nice day I get. I love it.

It might be difficult - change your focus away from your pain, outward. Read Seven habits of highly successful people. Enjoy nature. Chemical amusement is a time sink. Learn how to live well cheaply. Network. It's easiest to a find GF through a woman friend (28 yo) are looking for marriage. Embrace capitalism - do a service (for women) like painting. Get advice, get the most for your time. The garden idea is a good one. There is an enormous number enjoyable free activities. Consider changing your diet of ideas, to positive ones. You've suffered horribly at others hands, it took your past. Aim yourself towards a positive direction. A GF can contribute ideas it doesn’t have to be all you - they like a leader. Sorry for the traumatic childhood, perhaps you can be the father you'd have wanted to have.

You don't need to be part of a couple to be a whole person. I'm alot older than you and I've survived alone, I actually enjoy it.

Sorry for the loss of your friend. As a former addict myself I found the only thing that will change an addict's behavior is the addict him/herself. Nothing else. Not overdosing, not the death of a friend (that won't happen to me) not jail, not selling one's self respect for some dope will do it. It has to be from within the addict's own being.
