To think that if your going to spend Christmas Day snorting drugs you should not be doing it in

The disabled loo/baby change of a well known family type restaurant. Whilst using most surfaces (the ones that more vulnerable people may need to steady themselves or baby's may be led on) to sprinkle your drugs on.

If that's your thing fair enough but wouldn't it be more appropriate to do it somewhere else?

Always wipe down a baby changing unit. Sadly I know people who have recommended using the changing unit to do a line......

Drug addicts are the most selfish people ever! Make me sick especially those who like to drop their needles in the street for people to tread on....merry Xmas by the way!

Well, I hope you also wish junkies Merry Xmas....

Drug addicts are in the grip of an addiction which is a disease, so not just selfish...

Do they not have a needle exchange programme where you live?! WTF....

you should write to your local councillor/MP to highlight this problem instead of whinging about it

It IS an HIV/AIDS problem too you know...

Actually, since DS picked up a used needle in the local bus station saying "what's this, mummy?" I have to admit I have completely run out of sympathy. Yes it's an addiction, but no I don't give a shit. My son is more important, the poor sods who have to do the needle patrols at the crack of dawn in the local parks are more important (I have a friend who works for the council - our town has a needle exchange scheme, and it doesn't appear to make any sodding difference at all). And funnily enough, the ex addicts I've spoken to actually agree that drug addicts are selfish. (I'd have shooting galleries and prescribed heroin and let them go to hell in a handcart without impinging on my child).

Yanbu.

ananda don't get me wrong, I have a lot of sympathy for people whose lives have been blighted by drug addiction. I don't consider drug addiction a disease anymore than I do nicotine addiction,which is of course also a drug.

It is a choice to do the drugs. And those choices can lead to awful, tragic consequences. I truly feel sorry for people addicted to such substances.

But why is it a disease to be addicted to heroin but not nicotine? Is it the illegality of the former that makes it so?

I should imagine it was a recreational user rather than anyone in the grip of a serious heroin addiction hmm

Its annoying and inappropriate as well as dangerous if children are around.

I'd be having a word with the manager - they may have suspicions themselves and would likely kick anyone out if they suspected drug mis-use on the premises. We used to in the family pub I worked in. Any sign of it. Straight out. No reasons given. Just out.

of course it's selfish but to just label all drug users 'freaks' is a bit harsh.

Labelling people with addictions as "freaks" is definitely harsh, and dehumanising.

I don't do it myself and I don't think particularly well of people who do.

They're all someone's child.

I simply do not think it's a disease.

She's ^ right though. No one would leave visible traces of powder about the place it's too expensive.

no, leukaemia is a disease, for example, addiction is/was a choice

Pissed up people who take drugs in places like that are quite likely to be prone to all manor of strange behaviour.

I have never known anyone to leave so much left over if drunk they would be more inclined to lick it off the toilet seat than leave it

but agree there is a time and a place
