  1. I'm having pains in my penis after quitting smoking weed... will I be okay eventually?

    Hi, my name is Robert. I'm 18 years old and I'm currently going to college to study music. I'm just now getting into my second semester and it has been 8 days since I last smoked marijuana. To be honest, I've been wanting to do this for a very long time. I've taken few day breaks here and there, but I always get suckered into smoking again. I've been smoking weed chronically for the past year and half, and it has for sure taken a tole. My short term memory is terrible, I have to focus so...

  3. Seriously...

    ...people need help. I sometimes look on ebay for opium stuff, and I'm never surprised that there are fakes on there, but I am surprised to see people bidding on them. Sometimes the bidding goes quite high. They're always labelled as "authentic," of course, and I wonder if the sellers really do think they have something that was once used by an actual opium smoker. Seriously, somebody needs to help people out. Somebody needs to write a guide to discerning authentic opium antiques from the...
  4. .

    It Is a car crash That thing in your vision that sticks Holding your eyes focus for a moment That stretches on Forever with Infinite time to reflect Why do these things keep happening to me? Who cares? I don't know any more 'coz it's starting to get all weird Like when a good trip kicks in and you're like, hang on And it's right there But you don't believe it So all you can do is stand still and stare Stuck in a moment forever Twisting in fortune like a spiral That waxes and...
  5. Walk your own path

    There are specific amounts of space we’ve allotted for people, things, and places in our lives, whether consciously or inadvertently. And even if you wanted to, there are things you cannot cut out or rearrange to make them fit. You cannot put an elephant in a pigeon hole, or a square peg in a round hole. Blaming yourself for things going wrong, people leaving, situations not working out the way you’d like them to is a simple solution. So is blaming the other person. Albeit simple, it is...
  6. Love Scars (Spoken Word)

    This poem is a collection of thoughts, feelings, ideas, and so on that I've gathered over the years. I find it easier to write about sad events, so I figured I try my hand at a break up/turbulent relationship piece. It's like I try to move forward but we're still looking backwards And we try to turn the page-but we're stuck in this chapter It's like we're free to have a future-but imprisoned by our past Every new day-still reminds us of our last And we're both tired of this song-but...
  7. 31 Days Sober.. But This Break From My Lady Is Making It Hard To Say It's Over!

    Been feeling pretty good as far as energy goes. For me it's always been the roughest of the getting clean part of it. Withdrawals are fine.. but the lethargy and lack of motivation and feeling like I have to binge eat but only wanting sugars and sweets can be a real bitch! But I've done this before and I have been handling getting clean like a pro. But am I happy? NO! It just goes to show you that there is more to it than just getting clean. My stubborn mind does not know how to handle...
  8. The Bed That You Made

    How can you be so weak Why do you always follow Once so strong and proud And now so frail and hollow Why can't you just stand up Instead of sinking in this hole You've surrendered all your strength And you let it take your soul Now just close your eyes and pray And pretend a god will save you You still try to justify While your addiction slowly slays you Illusions front as truth As deceptions overtake Your life becomes a lie A joke A fraud A fake When suddenly your love is gone And hope has...

  11. Fantasizing about it

    Been fantasizing about relapsing pretty obsessively lately. I thought writing it down somewhere would help. I don't even know what I would do after I smoked meth. I fantasize more about the process than anything. Going to get the meth, buying the pipe, loading it, melting it down and watching the beautiful crack back. That is if I didn't get arrested during the deal for some reason. Or just get ripped off; which is pretty likely. I know this will pass and I just have to stay strong. I...
  12. Open Up

    Open that new calendar, turn the page, and begin your new year. Just as in opening the pages of a book, who really knows what the contents will contain? Just what does "open" really mean for us? What do we open? What does it include? Familiar phrases or words such as "eyes wide open", "keep an open mind", "stay open to new ideas" all qualify as good examples of the concept. When your eyes are wide open, you see more, possibly have a different insight into an old problem or situation. More...
