The issue is not where the drugs came from but why they were needed. What kind of pain needed relief.
In my younger days I remember being coked up all night and drinking to come down after hitting the bong three times in between.
Thing is I quit, I was 25 this woman was 48. Point is it shaves years off your life usually.
Now its all about moderation. A drink occasionally, but never get *trashed.*
I smoke some bud if I have a rough day or even an average one, but don't wake and bake or drive on it.
Part of growing up for me. The celebrity life of partying can slow down this process. Most people can't afford a good connection, either.
I wonder what we would be saying if this were Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, the list goes on...
