  1. My boyfriend showed me this video. 2 weeks ago I found him dead in the bathroom. Heroine od. He was the best person i had in my life, and I miss him horribly. Even though it might sound horrible, but what he’s been through made him most lovable, careful and thankful person. I’ve never been as happy in my life as he mede me feel. And if you ask me now I am sure he could kick and stay clean. Readying all these comments makes me feel way better than talking to all people who has never dealt with drugs. People who don’t know much about addiction just put labels on you, saying that you will never be able to get clean. They don’t see person. Please, stay strong mainly for yourself, and for those who love you. It’s very hard, but it’s possible. Life is not perfect, but there are a lot of things out there that can bring you real happiness. Love you all❤️

  3. Psalm 37 The Message (MSG)A David Psalm

    37 1-2 Don’t bother your head with braggarts
        or wish you could succeed like the wicked.
    In no time they’ll shrivel like grass clippings
        and wilt like cut flowers in the sun.

    3-4 Get insurance with God and do a good deed,
        settle down and stick to your last.
    Keep company with God,
        get in on the best.

    5-6 Open up before God, keep nothing back;
        he’ll do whatever needs to be done:
    He’ll validate your life in the clear light of day
        and stamp you with approval at high noon.

    7 Quiet down before God,
        be prayerful before him.
    Don’t bother with those who climb the ladder,
        who elbow their way to the top.

    8-9 Bridle your anger, trash your wrath,
        cool your pipes—it only makes things worse.
    Before long the crooks will be bankrupt;
        God-investors will soon own the store.

  4. People don't die from coke. Haha I've overdosed 10 or more times one kept me in icu for a weak. I shot cocaine up everyday for a year. Didn't of once.

  5. If you don't know heroin is dangerous your a ducking idiot. Duck man. These rappers like to see more about dope then using it. When I started heroin I knew exactly what it was I'll already watched my buddies from other bands pawn their ducking GOLD RECORDS. OK SONG just to drug fashionable

  6. i wanna live ! i dont wanna die but i cant quit! they are killing me..i wanna live…i wanna live….Those drugs are just killing me….i wanna quit all thoseee but i cant n no-one will understand this pain

  7. This song is inspiring I'll pick you other song I hear on the radio any day keep up it up if you full over get back up again

  8. ~My Name is ADDICTION~
    My name is addiction I live inside your head.
    I am a demon that must be fed.
    My name is addiction,
    "You want me with dread,
    I am the reason family and friends are dead.
    My name is addiction,
    I am the reason misery dwells deep inside your head.
    I am the reason you wish to be dead.
    My name is addition the one that feels right,
    I am the one you seek out to comfort the rage you hold inside.
    My name is addiction the only friend that you need,
    I give the illusion of comfort and promise you solace from grief,
    “Yet it is I who steals the peace that you seek.
    Here together in Chaos you will dwell in the shadows of darkness along side of me.
    I will befriend you then leave you alone
    To ponder and miss the Rush of me when I am gone.
    I take sobriety away leaving you feeling hopeless
    While I steal away what is left of your focus.
    I will hold you with pills alcohol and pipes too
    Nothing but garbage is what I give to you.
    I am the one, who will love you my Dear,
    The writer of this story can tell you about me,
    Oh the horrors she has seen.
    The tears that she cries are because of me.
    She will tell you that I will love you to “Death my Dear.
    Love your Friend

  9. Colicche drug addiction good song too this song is amazing I'm detoxing from methadone and it's a major mind fuck.

  10. About time rappers stop promoting zanny, molly, perc, and syrup. Rap is supposed to tell you about reality, which includes the negative consequences of drugs and banging.
    RIP Michael, David and Luke. You are not forgotten.
    We are dying people a society of zombies. They are systematically murdering us.
