In this world it is so easy to become dependent on drugs with all the problems that people have in the world. It becomes easy for people to depend on the drugs instead of facing the problems head on because it is convenient to buy the drugs instead of working through their problems. Therefore, growing up in this world is hard enough without the pressure of becoming dependent on drugs. Of course, people are certainly curious as to why people become dependent on the drugs that they choose. She believes that when you hang around people that are dependent on drugs you will eventually become just like them. Dependency on drugs usually means that someone is going through a rough time in their life. Therefore, becoming a dependent of drugs usually means that they are trying to escape from the trials and tribulations of life.

She knows that many things that happen in your life can result into the dependency to drugs to relieve the pain, stress, and many other things that they are facing within their life.   She does not understand why they do not seek help instead of resorting to drugs. Throughout the world there are many places that are here to help people get past the trials and tribulations of their life instead of resorting to taking drugs.

When people start depending on drugs to cure the ailments of their life it becomes a habit that is hard to kick because your body is dependent on the drug that they are taking. Without warning it becomes a part of your life. Here you are stuck with a drug addiction that you cannot kick because of anger, pain, suffering, and everything else that is going on in your life.

When you know of someone that is dependent on drugs you see different mood swings, attitude changes, and changes in the things that they do in their life. Sometimes people who are dependent on drugs will do things that they normally would not do because they are coming down off of their high.

Before you know it a day or week has gone by and your friend is looking for a way to get their fix on their choice of drug. They cannot deal with the everyday life because of their dependency on drugs. Many people do not like to be around others that are doing drugs or become dependent on drugs for the fun of it. People that are dependent on drugs do not think about the consequences of their actions until it is too late.

There is help out there if you are willing to make the time to make a change in your life. Having a dependency on drugs is never easy and it takes time to get through the roughest part of cleaning your system of the drugs that you have put into your body. However, you have to keep it in your mind that you are better than the drug. You have to take a stand and make something of yourself instead of relying on the drugs to make your life better.

Sometimes friends, family members, and people that you love dearly need to be put in a place where they are able to detox from the drugs that they are dependent on. In reality, you need to help your family, friends or the people that you love and try to get them the help that they need to not be dependent on the drugs that they are taking.

What is more interesting is the amount of money that it takes to purchase the drugs that they are dependent on. In most scenarios one pill may cost up to $20 dollars or more and if one person is buying five or more a day then that turns out to be quite a bit of money especially if they need more than one pill a day. Your friend or family member needs to know that there is help out there and that you are standing behind them the whole way.

Sometimes they will not listen to reason because they are so dependent on drugs that no matter what you say or do it would not matter much to them. If they are not going to help themselves and admit to having a problem then there is not much that you could accomplish. Most of the time people who are dependent on drugs will blame the people who are trying to help them through their hard time. When in reality, they are the ones who need the love and attention that many people fail to provide to loved ones or friends.

Drug debate: Will punishing women who take drugs while pregnant – WRCBtv.com | Chattanooga News, Weather & Sports


In my opinion I think that they should do this because they are not only hurting themselves; they are making their unborn child addicted to drugs that they should not be addicted to. Come on if a woman is taking drugs while they are pregnant they do not need to have children in the first place.

Putting them in a rehab is not going to solve anything because when they get out they will fall right back into the same problem they were in before. Before you know it they will be pregnant again without regards to what the drugs are doing to the baby growing inside of them.

You cannot help those who do not want to help themselves. Therefore, if it is going to take drug testing them before and after the baby is born so be it. No one can say whether or not they are not going to use after the baby is born. Once you become an addict of drugs that is all you think about and nothing else.

The doctors are the ones prescribing this medication, and drugs except for what they get on the street. They are going to be right back in the line getting more so they can get their fix. They are not going to care what happens to the child and personally I do not think that a woman who is pregnant; doing drugs; and not paying attention to what is happening to the unborn child should be able to keep it after it is born.

Maybe it will be a wakeup call and maybe it will not be a wakeup call. It was their choice to do the drugs and put the baby in danger so they should buck up and take the consequences of their actions.

Parenting In The World Today


10154092_705584726160458_921790716_n

You know dealing with teenagers is a pain in the behind. They do not reason with you and they think that they know what it best for them. It is amazing that teenagers think that they know everything in the world when it comes to a variety of things. They think that parents are just giving them a hard time just for fun. However, parents are just trying to make them see that live is not easy, and they cannot always have what they want out of life.

People thinks that it is easy to work and that all they have to do is show up. They think that they do not have to do anything else. Teenager’s do not like to work and they do not think that they should have to do more than their share. Teenager’s just do not understand how the world works and they do not want to know. Sometimes you just have to let them see for themselves how the world can be and maybe then they will understand.

One of these days they will have their own children and they will be going through the same stuff that they put their parents through but only worse. It is crazy how when you get older; have children of your own that you find out that your parents were right about some of the things that you thought you knew about when you were a teenager. It is the little things in life that bring back those memories of your childhood and how you did not listen to your parents. You try to bring your children up the right way and hope that everything works out in the end. Once they reach that age of adulthood you hope that the things that you have taught them over the years will make them a honest, hardworking person.

However, you cannot see into the future and the only thing that you can do is be there for your children to help them through their trials, and tribulations throughout their life. Many parents do not care if their teenager’s are doing the right thing or not. In this day and time it is considered okay for a teenager to become pregnant, have sex before they are married, and many other things. Where did the morals go? What is different about the world today compared to years ago when boys, and girls courted each other before they had intimate relationships?

Parents do not seem to mind that their teenager’s are going out to parties having a good time; getting pregnant, doing drugs, drinking, and anything else that they want. Parents do not seem to mind that their 13 year old is going to have a baby when they are just a baby themselves. She knows that when she had her first child she did not know anything about being a mother to another life. It was something that she had to learn through trials. However, she could not be a better mother now and she cherishes the fact that her children are who they are right now. She keeps her children close, and tries to keep them out of harms way. Because you cannot trust anyone in this world today. You never know who will hurt you and you do not know when people will snap.

She knows that she cannot keep them safe forever but she does know that right now she can limit the people that they are around. At least her children have enjoyed their childhood without the worry of games, cell phones, internet, and other things. She is old fashioned in the way that she thinks and some people seem to think that her children will not appreciate the things that they have done for them. You know her children say “I Love You” a million times a day. They see what happens in the world today from the news, and the radio. Children missing, abducted, raped, murdered, and whatever else happens to them. My heart hurts every time I have to hear about little children, adults, and many other innocent people that have to go through anything like this.

It is sad and scary to think that our children have to grow up in a world like this. It is sickening to see that the world is heading into a place that no one wants to live in. Every time you turn on the television something bad has happened somewhere in the world. All it takes is saying something wrong to someone and they will snap into someone that you do not know. How safe is our children in this world? Why do parents not keep a closer eye on what their children are doing? What happens when your child or teenager gets into trouble do you bail them out or let them learn a lesson? When she was a teenager she did not think about having sex, doing drugs or hanging out with the cool people. That is all these children think about now is making sure that they are part of the crowd doing what the cool kids do. It is quite amazing that people allow themselves to follow the crowd instead of being themselves.

You do not have to act like something that you are not because if people like you for who you are then you will not have any problems. She tries to be herself in every situation because if people do not know the real you how are they going to know if they like you. Now, in the age of technology parents have many things that they can put their children in front of to keep them out of their hair.  A built in babysitter that is going to corrupt their minds from playing games, sitting in front of the television, playing on their cell phones, I pads, and handheld devices. What happened to making children go outside and use their imagination?

Oh wait! It is easier to buy them expensive items to keep them occupied and out of your hair than to make them use their minds to have fun. Children are learning way to much at such an early age that they think that it is the way that it is done. Parents do way to much in front of their children and what happens when these children see these things. When you do drugs in front of your children they think that it is okay to do these things. Then you have your children selling drugs to other little children because they saw their parents doing it. When children see their parents having sex in front of them they think that it is okay and so they are going to do the same thing. Because that is what they have seen when you get a little child that can tell you everything about sex there is something wrong with that picture.

She tries to understand why parents do some of the things that they do and she just cannot understand what people do. Allowing your child to get their nails done like an adult, dressing them up to look like they are older than what they are, letting them go out on dates before they even become a teenager, allowing them to have a Facebook page at ten or eleven years old, giving them cell phones at ten years old, I pads at the age of eight or younger, buying the most expensive games because that is what your child wants, and anything that they want. The future children of the world spend their time playing way to many games and even adults get carried away with playing games. She has seen many adults live their life for playing games, which that is their right if that is what they want to do with their life.

This is not teaching our children anything about the real world. When they grow up and get out on their own they are not going to know what to do because their parents bought them anything and everything that they wanted. So what is the parents going to go to their house all the time to take care of them? Clean their house, cook for them, do their laundry, and whatever else they want. When does it end? When do they finally learn that they cannot have everything that they want out of life unless they work for it. When do they step up and do these things for themselves? It is essential that they learn how to cook, clean, work, and do things for themselves.

To each his own in this world. This is some of the reasons why children are going around doing the stupid things that they do. When you are stuck in a house playing nothing but violent games, and watching violence on television it sends the wrong message to our younger crowd. They seem to think that it is okay to do these things because the people in the videos, and on television make it as real as they possibly can. It would be interesting to see what type of effects playing violent games or watching violence everyday has on the mind, and brain. It has to send some type of hidden message within the things that they are seeing to make them think that it is okay to shoot up schools, rape, murder or whatever to other people.

When you have games that allow gamers to rape, murder, and who knows what else in the virtual world they will apply those to the real world. How are they going to know what is real and what is not if they are allowed to play these games for long periods of time. A couple of weeks ago she was watching Criminal Minds and there was a man and a woman going around raping, and killing women because it was all part of a game that they were playing for long periods of time. Parents have to know that this is damaging their child’s mind.

Okay now, that I have said my peace about certain things I know that there will be more later on throughout this writing process. It is a scary world that we live in now and the ones that are going to suffer the most is our children, their children, and so on.

Texting While Driving


It should be against the law in my opinion because it can cause serious problems because they are not paying attention to the road. It is against the law to drink and drive because of the problems or issues that causes. It is against the law to be under the influence of drugs while driving because of the implications that it causes. Wearing seatbelts is mandatory for everyone that drives because it can save lives. So people are having issues with the new law that goes into effect “get over it”. I would rather be safe than sorry when it comes to driving and texting, which I do not do anyway. It is amazing that people can do this type of thing and be aware of the surroundings while driving. It is hard enough to watch out for the other people around you why would you want to chance your life texting instead of waiting until you stop. Is it that important that you cannot wait until you reach your destination. Is it worth causing a wreck, and possibly killing someone because you cannot wait until you come to a complete stop to text your friends.

McDonald’s Mom


Today I read the article about the McDonald’s mom that took video of the disturbing things that were found in the play area of the restaurant. I think that she hit on a key issue of restaurant’s that still carry the play areas for children. Furthermore, I have three children and although they are too big to be playing in the play area they did when they were little kids. Years ago there was a little child that got stuck in the bottom with a hyperdermic needle and died from the injected drug. It was found at the bottom of the ball area. No one ever cleaned the area and the end result was not pretty. I commend this mother for what she has done and I will stick behind her as well. A couple of weeks ago I walked into the McDonald’s in our area and the ice machine had mold on the plastic part where the ice comes out. I informed the manager but nothing has been done about it since I said something. The safety of our children are at stake because the restaurants do not care or clean the play area’s.
