Like A Hole In Your Head

July 10, 2016

What I think they are trying to say here is – You need to start snorting cocaine like you need a hole in your head. According to this wonderful PSA, snorting cocaine is 100% equal to shooting yourself in the head. Don’t believe me? Hit play and get scared straight! Produced by Edward Sicard. Featuring […]

Self-Help Sunday

April 3, 2016

I ran across a great post on Quartz that was reprinted from LinkedIn: Almost everyone who is unhappy with life is unhappy for the same reasons If you will read, you will immediately see how it can be helpful in recovery.  In brief, it’s all about setting expectations, thinking positive, and being realistic. Your expectations, more than […]

Bath Salts

March 24, 2016

In the history of rock and roll, there have been plenty good songs that caution against drug use; but they are usually about the more commonly abused drugs like cocaine, heroine, or LSD.  This one about bath salts strikes me as odd. “Bath Salts” by the highly suspect named band, Highly Suspect , may not be as rock ‘in to me […]

Recovery Road – New Teen Drama About Rehab

January 23, 2016

The ABC Family Channel rebranded and transformed itself into the FreeForm Channel this month in an attempt to gain a new audience who may have viewed the original name as being too family friendly and expected offerings to be tame or worse – boring. Recovery Road is one of their first new original programs to […]

Belated Bowie Birthday

January 11, 2016

Happy Belated Birthday to David Bowie who turned 69 last week.  Bowie was afraid he would not make it to age 30 due to cocaine addiction ; which he kicked around the time this video was made.  He is one of my favorite artists and this is one of my favorite songs.   This performance aired live on […]

Drug Wars – A New Hope

December 21, 2015

I went and saw Star Wars this weekend and left the theater satisfied  knowing that the direction and future of my beloved movie series seems to be in good hands under the new regime of Disney and company.  Better yet, that’s the feeling I am getting on Michael Botticelli; who along with the new Star […]

Guess Who Went Too Far?

December 13, 2015

I never thought of this as a drug song until just the other day; the easy going jazzy tone of it mislead me. It was released in 1969 by Randy Bachman after hearing Bob Dylan’s “Ballad in Plain D”, which included the phrase “she was easily undone”. Bachman’s song tells the story of a girl […]

Scott Weiland R.I.P.

December 5, 2015

Unfortunately Scott Weiland was as famous for being a drug addict as he was for being the lead singer of two great bands, the Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver.  He goes now to the great gig in the sky… I hope. He tried many times to get his demons under control, succeeding at taming them for brief periods, but sadly, in the end […]

I Am Chris Farley

December 1, 2015

I caught the new documentary about comedian and Saturday Night Live star Chris Farley on Spike TV over the holiday weekend and despite the way it glosses over the ugly side of his addictions, its worth a watch if you can catch it for free like I did. Claiming to be the “definitive biographical film” about the […]

One Thing Leads To Another

November 28, 2015

Short, but to the point. “LEAD” shows how one thing leads to another. Following the wrong people, seeking approval, and chasing the dragon. It’s like a mini “Requiem for a Dream” LEAD from Matt Sears on Vimeo.

Addiction and Terrorism

November 18, 2015

Anytime I hear of an outrageously stupid or atrociously inhumane act; I automatically wonder if substance abuse is a factor; and almost always I am proven right.  People who do these things have to be imbalanced, mentally ill, or demonic for my world view to be right; and there is no better pathway or conduit to those states of being – than substance […]

Horror Movies IRL

October 14, 2015

Two driving under the influence video’s making headlines today. The first one is reminiscent of, but not as explicit as the old video cassette “Faces of Death”.  Nonetheless, it is very disturbing Phone video of high teenagers taken by themselves as they die in a horrible car crash.  The video annotations by the parents who released it […]
