Don’t take this the wrong way, but if you think Methadone is a solution, you don’t understand addiction. Addiction is the presence of the mental obsession. That means I am subject to suddenly go insane and relapse at any point in time for no apparent reason. It means that I’m either totally recovered (sane/free) or not at all. There is no in between, no grey area. So an addict on Methadone is simply biding time, waiting to relapse. And please, if you are a parent out there, watch out. Our illness is progressing rapidly while we’re on Methadone. When and if we ever get off of this synthetic form of heroin, we are going to go on the RUN OF A LIFETIME, which may very well end us once and for all.
As you know, I couldn’t care less about blowing up comfort zones. My job is to tell you the truth and help to dissolve the pile of bullshit you’ve been fed by your family doctor and other sources of mainstream ignorance. The good news about challenging perceptions and beliefs is that you can rest assured that I will never do you the disservice of lying to you, especially about Methadone.
Methadone is a state-sponsored, synthetic opiate – otherwise known as pure evil. Here, buy our brand of heroin instead of your brand of heroin. Heroin is an opiate. Methadone is an opiate. How is taking more opiates a form of treatment for opiate addiction? Your brain is still actively addicted to opiates.
I hate to burst your bubble, but an addict Methadone is no better at all. None of the derangement or the enormous pile of false beliefs, character flaws and spiritual poison that have built up year after year are gone. We are still sick beyond measure, so don’t be fooled just because we perk up for a time and enroll in a few classes, because what you have is simply a highly disturbed and insane individual getting to stay high on your tax dollars. The mental, emotional, psychological and physical condition of an addict on Methadone is truly frightening.
I took Methadone once to “treat” my heroin addiction, and I can admit now that I was simply engaging in the easiest, softest route I could find – the coward’s route. And this is, needless to say, the very thing that brings addicts down – pathological self-focus and preoccupation with comfort. So how effective was the synthetic opiate I took for my opiate addiction? Well, I’ll tell you one thing, I was brought to my knees by the indescribable torture of withdrawal, and once I was finally clean of it (which took weeks), I was left ravaged, devastated, spiritless, clinically depressed, suicidal, anxious, totally self-centered and focused on nothing but my feelings and comfort, and yup… still a full blown drug addict. We are nowhere but right back where we started.
Worse than any of that, of course, is the fact that when Methadone was finished with me, I was still useless to those who love me and useless to the world. If you ever want your child back, if you ever want your child to be able to give to you again, if you ever want your child to succeed in this world and experience physical, mental, emotional and spiritual freedom, then stay as far away from Methadone as humanly possible. I wouldn’t touch it with a ten-foot pole and gloves on.
I really do feel for the parents and spouses out there who have been told by some absolutely clueless doctor that Methadone is a form of treatment for heroin addiction, when it is anything but. It’s easy to think your addict is getting better, but let me tell you why: because they are still jammed out of their minds, and it’s free! Plus they’ve managed to fool you that they’re dealing with their addiction. Gee, a no guilt high! Wow, this is the life! How selfish can we get? Describing Methadone as a type of treatment or solution is a moral crime. Treatment for something is where you take or apply a remedy and you get better from what ails you. Last time I checked, you couldn’t treat heroin addiction with synthetic heroin, but hey, I guess stranger things have happened.
Perhaps the most immoral addiction-related fact that exists today is how tax dollars are used to subsidize Methadone and Methadone clinics. As if you poor parents aren’t already raped enough with federal income taxes, entitlement taxes, welfare taxes, war taxes, property taxes, energy taxes, inflation, dollar-debasment, bailouts for criminal bankers and the corporate elite, congressional salaries and presidential vacations. So now hard-working, middle class Americans should foot the bill for selfish cowards to continue getting high, and especially when you consider there are 7 billion other people in the world who feel and go through the same exact shit as we addicts do and they just get up, walk through it and go to work sober because they are adults and because it is the right thing to do.
Get off the Methadone and go get better. Do some actual work on yourself like a responsible adult. That is what separates the men from the boys.
