    I’m often reminded of a conversation I had with a friend. He was a maintenance guy at a savings and loan company. He said “every chick that works here is a pill popper.” This was 15 years ago. At the time I thought no way. Now I know it to be true. Everyone is or was popping pills. (Everyone=a lot not actually everyone) What do you think?

    First, WHY? Why do people need to be poppin pills? Why in that business would you need to? Says something when it's known and is still accepted! Sad days ahead, the Zombies are REAL, imaging a bunch of attics with out a fix for days and days, rampage much?

    My educated guess is 25% of people you’re interacting with are pill poppers. Think about that when someone is packing a parachute for you or working on the other end of a conductor. Good replies btw. Zombies without a fix are extremely dangerous.

    I'll keep ths short. Most/many folks these days were raised without being taught personal responsibility. As a result their problem solving ability was stunted, as was their emotional maturity.
    So they're societally malformed with poor/minimal coping skills. As a result they must find external fixes for their inabilities.
    Enter booze, drugs, sex, gambling, etc.

    I am so naïve on many things since I returned stateside and this is another one. When you are referring to 'Pill Poppers' are these people taking medication for pain or depression or what? Maybe better stated, are they prescription medication or simply something off the street to put them into La-La-Land? I honestly don't see too much drugs where I live (Northern Idaho) but I admit I do see people in the neighboring larger towns whose dress, demeanor, and decorative skin seems to point towards being users of narcotics.

    I know plenty of people that have to pop pills to stay alive. It is those that pop the opioids/psychotropic drugs that are the ones that cannot function properly without them. I have a SIL that I keep my distance from at all times. She pops Xanax like they are Tic-tacs. When she runs out before her prescription is due for a refill, she then exhibits/fakes anxiety attacks at the ER to get her more Xanax pills.

    Each of these trips to the ER cost her more than $1,000 a trip. She is constantly sued for those unpaid medical bills, which then in turn causes her paychecks to be garnished, which leads to other unpaid bills, ext, ext, ext. You do not want to be around her when everything goes sideways.

    Sorry if I wasn’t clear. Prescription opioids is what I was referring to. What is happening now is they are getting difficult to obtain. Guess what these folks are turning to for their fix? Heroin. No $h@t. Be careful out there.

    I don't care if they have a medical reason for opioids or not, just don't cause any problems around me! These are the people that will have to be killed if the SHTF, if they live that long.

    I really don't understand people . For the doctor medicated ones , they seem to strive on the fact they are prescribed medications , it gives them a reason to do the drugs they want , to justify their use . There are the ones that are doctor prescribed , that are over prescribed , which leads to an addiction , that may lead to the street drugs . The street drug users are in my opinion , just stupid , weak people . Personally , I don't want to be reliant on anything or anyone . The only things I am reliant on is food , water and shelter , everything else is just a luxury , it may be missed , but I'm not reliant on it ,,,,, even coffee,,,,:eek:

    A lady friend I take care of takes 10-15 different pills every day .
    It varies because she does dialysis every other day , I think due to all the prescription drugs she has been taking for a life time.
    She has been so conditioned to needing to go to the doctor when she has the slightest issue she is literally bound to the system.
    She ends up in the hospital every 6 months or so .
    I had not once in my whole life time (68+ years) been admitted in hospital . even my doctors visits for minor injuries were limited and I hate taking any pills ,I prefer alternative medicines and good sense .
    I have never even had a flu shot.
    Women are particularly easy to instill fear , especially those with their heads buried in fantasy novels, so confused why men are not like they are in books .. big mystery . Stupid .
    Women listen to one another's issues that come upon them, and identify even when it s not actually true. That or they don't deal with an issue till it is crippling and almost too late to repair. Doctors don't know every thing though they pretend to .
    Modern medicine does not care to make you well , the need you addicted to them and to their drugs. IMO
    Extensive independent study on one's own part can reveal cures for a great many things out side modern medicine that have been around a long time .
    You are what you eat goes a long way in one's survival.
    If you put junk food in your body don't expect it to perform ,throw sand in your engine oil and remove the guts from an oil filter. .same thing. circulation to your vital organs drops off and things just get progressively worse.
    Our bodies live on living tissue.
    Animals do not cook their food .
    Not saying not to cook food just do not destroy it .

    It is called pain management. That is the medical term. Health care is no longer healthcare. Health care consists of throwing pill at it and hoping it works. No addressing or fixing the issue. If one gets addicted to opioids then you will be switched to Suboxone which is also addictive. They say it is not but it is.

    I am not going to bash pill poppers. There is fault in all areas. I know many need their pills daily in order to cope with the pain. I know that medical professionals are dictated by insurance companies as to what they can and cannot do. It is an epidemic and it ruins lives. Not just that of the person who takes the medication but that of loved ones and also those who come into contact with the addict.

    ^^^^What if your hot-air balloon operator was popping pills? He could steer you right into a 500KV power line. Wait. I forgot. Only the Devil can steer those.
