4T (Time To Talk TIMS)
Explains – “how to spot mental addiction”
As we all know, drugs make you feel boss (when you’re on them) and people use them most weekends to escape their normal lives and either relax, or get off their barnet and get hyped up etc. when drugs wear off its f****** sh*t and you either really want some more, or you never want to do it again… TIMS is going to share “how to tell if you should swerve them” either for a bit, or for good.
“What the f*** is mental addiction?”
If you don’t know already, most drugs are only addictive in your mind (COKE, WEED, MDMA) but others are physically addictive and you can have a seizure if you stop suddenly because your body is dependent on them to survive (ALCOHOL, PAINKILLERS, HEROIN). We’re talking about the mental side of things on this one, please see your GP or speak to your local drug and alcohol advisory service if you need help to come off something, WHATEVER IT IS because they are the real ones who can help, this is just a guide to the signs of mental addiction. Alternatively, tell someone who you trust can help you or search the web (TALK TO FRANK, INTUITIVE RECOVERY ETC.)
“I don’t have a problem, take it or leave it, mate”
