The new danger our kids are facing

So many new drugs and drug concoctions have made their way onto the market and into homes in recent year and are deadly.

Purple drank goes by several names including sizzurp, purple stuff, lean, drank and barre. However, despite these playful monikers, purple drank is remarkably dangerous and has either killed or hospitalized several celebrities with equally entertaining epithets like DJ Screw, Pimp C, and Lil’ Wayne (treated in the ICU).

In recent years, purple drank has been celebrated among singers, rappers and professional athletes like Soulja Boy, Justin Bieber, and JaMarcus Russell. Apparently, all this attention was too much heat for drank’s unwitting supplier, Activis, which has halted production and sales of this highly potent cough syrup (nicknamed Prometh) for fears of substance misuse.

The street cocktail

Parents if you don’t know you need to know.

People are more of an influence on our kids and many not good.

Kids go to parties in jr high , high school hell even college and they are handed a drink if they ask what it is they are told it’s a lean drink.

Do you know what a lean drink is?

Do you know what sizzup is?

Or how about purple drank ?

Purple lean or dirty sprite?

Well it’s dangerous and deadly and you better learn about it.

What Are its Side Effects?

Lean drink side effects may gradually worsen as a person drinks more of the concoction. However, first-time users may also notice unpleasant side effects such as :

• Dizziness.

• Blurred vision.

• Nausea.

• Memory problems.

Regular purple drank use can cause additional, widespread health issues. Individuals who use the drug regularly report suffering from .

• Dental decay.

• Constipation.

• Weight gain.

• Urinary tract infections.

People who abuse purple drank in the long term or in sufficiently large doses may suffer from life-threatening effects, which may be exacerbated when it is used in combination with other drugs.

Some cases of coma and death have been reported and attributed to purple drank use. The risk of death is highest when combined with other sedative drugs or depressant substances such as alcohol .

Many people believe the drug is safe because it contains substances regularly prescribed by doctors (cough syrup, antihistamines), but it can and does cause disastrous health problems and even death. In fact, even those celebrities who are credited for making purple lean famous are now having serious health problems.

In 2012, Lil Wayne began having seizures after a long history of abusing lean,1 and in 2000 DJ Screw died of a codeine overdose .

Many people are surprised to learn what drinking lean can do to their bodies, yet, even after learning about the harmful side effects, they continue to use.

Seeing their favorite celebrities using the concoction and boasting about their experiences with the drug often encourages the behavior.

When continued use of purple lean leads to addiction, professional addiction treatment becomes necessary.

Because the withdrawal symptoms caused by codeine addiction are so uncomfortable, many people choose to go through withdrawal in an inpatient detox setting and then transfer to an addiction treatment program

Now people are also slipping other shit in these drinks making them more deadly

Excuse Me Are You Drunk or High…

It saddens me to see men and women young and old become addicted to drugs and alcohol

I have lost so many friends because of both.

They went from smart individuals with great paying jobs to being homeless , liars and thieves and how terrible it usually ends in jail or worse death .

With all the information online and the news about drug addiction, overdoses, people having damage to their hearts brains memories because of drugs not just heroin but crack, coke, crystal meth, speed, downers pain pills, valuim, xanax, and yes I am including alcohol and weed.

How can smart people choose to go down such a dark black path that leads to destruction of their lives? And the lives of their family’s?

Do they not understand or care that it rips families apart.

I’m sorry I’ve had my share of pain both physical and emotional and heartache as well as loss , loss of both parents, loss of friends due to death due to disease or overdose or suicide, and I’m here to tell you you need to learn how to cope with life or your going to end up dead.

I’m lucky I guess I always knew how to cope sure not always productive but never destructive.

I see old friends who last year were making 80-100,000 a year now homeless and ruined by cocaine , alcohol and heroin.

Their families destroyed, all because they couldn’t cope with something or someone and started to use drugs or alcohol to bury their feelings and pain……

I’ve attended funerals of friends who died from eating to many somas or xanax that they went to sleep and never woke up.

Or an old classmate overdosed on heroin

Or was killed in a car accident because they were drunk.

Or ended up in jail because they couldn’t hold a damn job any longer and resorted to theft and some prostitution.

Or they are on disability because they fucked up their heart because of cocaine and or crack.

I’ve had friends die from suicide because they were so fucked up they had no idea that the problems they had were just temporary and chose to kill them self.

GET A GRIP PEOPLE!!

I mean we preach to our kids not to do this and yet adults feel they are above this. Wake up call…. YOUR NOT

And kids well kids and young adults have that not me and no fear attitude until the shit hits the fan… and it will sooner or later it will ….

And what about kids today. How can they even start on this shit? They hang out with losers ruining their lives before they even have a chance to live it.

Why do people feel the need to “party and or get high”?

Can’t you have fun with out it?

From what I see you still look fucking miserable and lost. And you sure look like hell so where’s the fun?

Grow up and wake the fuck up people

Drugs and Alcohol KILLS if you don’t think it will You your living a lie.

As holidays are here seems like everyone feels the need to celebrate something and that’s ok if you are a responsible. You don’t drink and drive. You. Know when to stop but some will overindulge with alcohol drugs or both and wind up with DUIs , Go to court and lose your drivers license, pay court costs, insurance rates skyrocket,attorneys fees possible jail time and let’s not forget possible death to you or someone else.

Plus you can and eventually will be come addicted either physically or mentally or both.

So be smart don’t drink and do drugs and for god sake don’t drive under the influence!!

Globally, alcohol misuse was the fifth leading risk factor for premature death and disability in 2010. Among people between the ages of 15 and 49, it is the first. .

In the age group 20–39 years, approximately 25 percent of the total deaths are alcohol attributable

So imagine if your in a room with 100 people 25% is 25 people that could die from alcohol.

Alarming!!

And stats are just as bad across the board when people use drugs!

And who the hell wants to willingly take Molly? Are people that stupid it’s called the date rape drug for a reason!

People will slip you this in your drink or lie and tell you it’s something else…

I’m just shocked at how dumb people are…..

if you think it can’t happen to you…it probably will …

Do why chance becoming and alcoholic or addicted to drugs?

Or killing you or done innocent person in a crash because you want to get high and try to escape reality….hopefully you know that drinking and drugs don’t make your problems go away….if anything they will make them worse…..

So all you adults and kids

Grow the fuck up get a grip! And get some help. Before you end up in jail or dead!!!

Detoxing from what I have seen others go through is a version of hell….

If your reading this and in recovery please share your words of wisdom in comments please. We need to save some lives!!

I see what it’s doing to your wife, or your husband or your parents or your old friends who are truly worried about you!!

Maybe I just had more experience dealing with heartache and pain early in life and learned to cope better.

Just to name a few tragedies in my life

I remember watching my dad so many times as a young child age 8 having heart attacks open heart surgery nearing death. Fighting to live he didn’t drink he didn’t use drugs but his drug was cigarettes I remember being scared that my dad was going to die.

I saw him try so many times to get back to work but his heart wouldn’t allow it

He had his his 1st heart attack at age 39 and he didn’t use drugs he just had a bum ticker he sadly died at age 56 I was 25.

I watched my mother die at age 65

I had no brothers and sisters so I basically was now an orphan….

I was physically attacked in hs Thank God a friend saw it and saved me or I would have been raped.

I had an abusive first marriage I suffered joblessness homelessness and I never reached for drugs or alcohol to cope.

I smoked weed in hs for a brief moment I dreamt when I was older but I never abused it.

I stopped before I got in to deep.

I remember being in pain from a car accident in 2000 and all the doctors wanted to do was medicate me. At first I did what they said but I saw what it was doing to me… I was becoming depressed so I said screw them fired them .

I’m not against people in pain getting help I am against drug and alcohol abuse of any kind ……

Are we that lost and weak or ungrounded that we have to use substances just to cope?

Or is that your excuse!!!

I will pray for you to wise up !

Please call and talk to someone get help before it’s to late!!

How would you feel if you watched your friends head down the wrong path …would you watch them die? Or try to help them get help !!!
