    "The Poison That's Killing You"

    You said you were done
    you said you were through
    please understand and see
    the poison that's killing you

    Before your time
    it will make you feel old
    it's taking it's toll
    has such a strong hold

    Are you going insane
    the devil wants that to be
    his grip is on you
    it's what he wants to see

    Complete destruction of
    your family and home
    is what he's after
    the devil's on the roam

    It may happen sooner than you think
    this will all come to it's ends
    the poison that's killing you
    will take away loved one's and friends

    Last year, I had to fire an employee that had an alcohol addiction. The fella had a .24 BAC and acted totally straight. (but reeked of booze) If he didn't get his fix, he started shaking.

    it's pretty much wide open here vtec

    wide open vtec
    as mentioned already
    booze for some may be the killer
    street drugs
    some people pick at their bodies -- mostly women speed freaks
    perscript drugs
    strung out as a people pleaser ??

    I know -- this one is out there
    may we just say
    anything that comes between family, work, self or ??

    I've fired people for pot, crack, heron, and alcohol, probably 50 to 75 in all. God as my witness, I never new a man could drink himself to death, until at 2:00 AM one morning I got a very painful education. Dam, sometimes life just sucks.

    Who isn't addicted to something? Reading, Internet, MBs, cars, TV, soap operas, work, religion, food, gadgets, etc...

    Everybody's gotta have a fix, right?

    I always say that everybody is addicted to something, its what makes life worth living... the spice of life if you will. I think MM means chemical addiction... I think sex is a chemical addiction.

    If you broaden the argument to include everything... then my list is very long.

    sorry that I didn't clear this up a little more
    getting back to the poem above

    addictions may be the type that will age us before our time ???

    maybe kill us or others ???

    separate us from family, self, job, God or ???

    vtec -- you seem to be living a good life for a young man
    if continued will save much pain for self and others

    not blowing smoke up the tailpipe -- just look to be the facts at this time

    I see where all my friends from high school ended up... I wanted more from life. I have good tastes and expensive habits.

    most importantly I realized what GOD wanted out of me... ever since then I have tried to live accordingly as best I can. Things have been good so far since then....

    Jesus said that you're supposed to die today so that you may live in Heaven.

    Soo... CLEARLY, religion is an addiction.

    As for VTEC, "chemical addictions", eh? You think sex is a chemical addiction, but you don't think reading, Internet, TV, MB, etc. are chemical addictions? Still, EVERYTHING you enjoy doing many times is a chemical addiction.

    Reading Sparky's writings won't cause those problems???
    I feel like drinking again afterwards.

    i guess you could say im addicted t marijuana,although ive came to learn that it only takes a couple days to stop thinking about it.

    im addicted to cigerretes.

    i never was and addict to hard drugs but i had enough fun weekends in my past with sure it didnt add no years to my life.their was a short period there when i was around 16/17 where i would take 5 or 6 pills at once.and the same 25 year old guy that intruduced me to that also introduced me to crank.

    plus when i would drink it would be way over board.

    you couldnt pay me to take them drugs now!scary!

    lifes way to fun for that.

    your computer/tv does not produce pheromones or endorphins. Sex most certainly does...
