Since I said I would abandon Vinyl's thread...
2. Who are you to dictate what could be my only influence for making any decision? You're pushing your knowledge of heroin addicts (which admittedly is an accurate representation in about 90 percent of the fiends I've known) on to me. You assume too much, and you assume it in an entirely personal fashion, which is generally a mistake as it is here.
3. Symbols can't be tough? What about the word-symbol "tough" itself? Alright, let me rephrase--you get awfully fucking personal and judgmental over meaningless bullshit. You actually jump at the opportuntiy to attack my character flaws, seemingly just because I post about drugs. What the fuck is your beef exactly? I would love to hear what it is in YOU that makes me such a big fucking peeve.
Point out any factual inaccuracies in anything I've posted on the subject matter and I'll gladly accept the criticism, but it's absurd that you feel such a dire need to assail what I have to say just because you think I'm doing it to look cool or whatever. But the vast majority of what I've had to say about it all is hardly trying to look cool, from where I'm sitting at least. I've done at least as much to detail the negative realities of drugs as the positive. So what the fuck?
