JUNKIEDOM U.S.A.

A friend of mine is kicking the habit. He's been on it for over five years, and it's real tough. I'm not talking about herion or cocaine or any street drug, I'm talking about a mood stabilizing prescription. Withdrwal is a nightmare, and these drugs we're being put on to combat depression are as addictive as anything coming out of south-east asia, if not more so. Prozac, not the specific drug in this case, has been with us for about fifteen years, and many others have followed. It scares me. I'm sure that these drugs have helped countless people, and certainly dependancy on one of these drugs is preferable to taking one's own life, but watch what you take america, you might never get off it.
