Just remembered

As I'm unpacking my office today, I remembered another conversation from the club last night. I was in the bathroom when a girl told me it just wasn't her lucky night.

Realizing it was only about 11pm, I told her, "Maybe it is your lucky night. The night is not over yet!"

To which she replied. "No it's not. I'm trying to score some blow."

I was really shocked by her response and I just told her that I couldn't help her. I think I was feeling a little deflated because I was feeling happy and optimistic and wanted to spread some of that to her. But if she needs drugs to have a good time, no amount of being positive is going to make her happy. So I felt kind of helpless to do anything for her. It's my job (career wise anyway) to make women feel better, and here was one I couldn't have any influence on at all. And that took me from happy to kind of contemplative.

As I left the bathroom I thought, "blow" is so 1986. I didn't know there were even people left that still did it. Especially not young people like her. I thought all the addicts these days were on meth or pot, because they're so much cheaper than other drugs and are always being talked about. I guess that goes to show how out of touch I am with the current drug culture.

Comments

That is kinda sad. I've never understood the need for drugs to "make it a good night" ... but I am the freak who never fits any of the rules anyway.
Ditto. I don't even need a drink to make it a good night.
Okay, seriously? You're misinformed about pot. It's not addictive like meth is. It CAN be addictive, yes. But nowhere near as bad as meth or other forms of speed.

I don't know, but for some reason, that comment really offended me. Just wanted to set you straight about that.
My ex knows some one who smokes every day. She HAS to smoke every day. It doesn't matter if she can't afford food or rent, she'll spend every last dollar on pot. It doesn't matter that it was ruining her marriage, she chooses being stoned over having a happy marriage. I also have a friend who has a roommate that has to smoke every day. He tried to stop, but can't.

I'm not saying everyone who is smoking is addicted. But I'm saying there are people who ARE seriously addicted.
Noc Noc is "BLOW" central. I think the owner does it too. I'd say that about a quarter of the clientele do coke. I get offered it for free fairly often by men there (of course I decline!). A lot of the fetish models do it because they are offered it for free.
