  • 1500$ a month on drugs? Just think how much he could achieve if he was saving that 1500$ every month.

  • Bro stop! I get having more control than other people. But, you still depend on it. I waisted 4-5 years of my life, doing blow. I never missed a day of work. (Even if I stayed up all night). But now that I'm beyond that, I realize how much that shit controlled my life. Trust me, if you think you have it all figured out, thats when you're about a year or 2, away from shoving a needle in your arm when you feel sick and hang with the wrong person, at the wrong time. Then.. its just a downward spiral. If you put away $1,500 a month, for 5 years.. you would have $76,000. Im just saying.. this, dosen't sound like a functional heroin user. Sounds like a heroin user, that is going to find out what the bottom is like, before his mind can stop it. But, who am I to judge. Be happy. ?

  • I can totally relate to this guy. Not shooting dope, to me, can be very functional if you have self control. I am functioning, and I have yet to meet anyone as functional as me while using. It took me a long time to come to terms with though that functioning is not thriving and I was not being everything I knew I could be. Just functioning and mainting your life in order to "feel good" all day, while not ever improving things or growing as a person, definitely gets OLD, and that is really what is driving me to recover. I know I want more for myself than what a little white powder can give me. If I'm so good at juggling this powerful drug, I'm excited to know what I can accomplish with it off my back and choosing to get my highs through LIFE and all it entails. One day I'm sure this guy will come to this realization too. Drugs can be too isolating an experience. I deserve and want MORE. ✌️♥️

  • Hey dude, I’ve been on a methadone program for 3 years. The first year or so I was still using and my counselor finally made me go up to 125mg (I’m 5’8” 125lbs) and I was able to stop using. I’m now down to 6mg and I go down 1mg every 2 weeks. I have 13 days of takehomes so every time I go to pick up I go down 1 mg. I will be off by the end of the year. It really worked for me, maybe it’ll work for you.

  • That feeling he mentions about how heroin makes you feel like yourself, that was the biggest appeal to me. I have social anxiety and using heroin made me feel comfortable going around other people and going out in public. Getting clean has made me become a hermit and the appeal of heroin always makes me want to go back because I want to have friends and enjoy life. Living in SFV in Los Angeles is hard cause I know where to find heroin so easily and meeting people is so hard for me already and it just sucks. That comment just really stood out to me. I miss feeling like it was okay to just walk outside and be myself.

      Matthew Andrew DrakeMatthew Andrew DrakeDag siden
  • No need to interrupt him. Ask him to tell his story from the very beginning. And then just stay open and interested and endure the silence when necessary. Questions afterwards. Works best from my experience. Time may be a problem ofc as he sure has a lot of things to say but maybe its still better to cut it afterwards. Also when he tells you the story of his father freaking out I can see that there are traces of trauma in his way of telling. Why interrupt and say "well so there was a little drama in your childhood", that felt somewhat weird. Or for example bringing in the adhd theory. Dont make up your own narratives of how he is a functional addict but just stay open and let him unfold his self. Great channel though!

  • He deff needs the methadone clinic . Here’s why. He won’t be able to stop he alsready said that. And it all sounds good “let’s be locked up for a few days” but really it’s NEVER THATVEASY. Why do u think they say “I’ll kick tomrorow” it’s always tomrorow . It says sounds good and easy or do able BUT when that time comes you have enough courage to finally stop and then you get through it and you’re on like day two and three and you just can’t do it no more I’ve gotten all the way up to D7 and I ran and really looking back if I could’ve just hold out for maybe 3 to 4 more days after that seven I would’ve been fine but it’s a lot worse when you’re going through it I mean it’s like one hour of hell it feels like a whole day of hell in the anxiety in the stress you feel while you’re detoxing is UNBELIEVABLE. Then u work ur ASS off To finally kick and yay u did it , and then in a week or two u use again bc ur craving hit or u think ur cool u get bored and u get a tad bit . A dub. Wel l if you’re not using daily a dub will get u about 2-3 xs so by the time u do that dub u want just a lil more and then u will stop . Then before u No it it’s already three or four days in a row and you’ve done a little bit so by the time you stop you’re going to be sick again all over I mean it’s crazy what it does to your brain in the chemistry get changes

  • during the school bomb scares... which, i guess, is still going on... i asked my teacher, "what if someone said they were called by a pay phone and were told that the school was going to get bombed? would we get off a day?" everyone laughed and we moved on... until, my teacher had me ESCORTED down to the principal's office with a sealed letter she wrote. i sat there until cops came and next thing I knew, i was kicked out... i tell u what, if i didn't have any inclination to bomb anything, up to that point... after that, i get it why someone might do such a thing, now. (to the faculty: needless to say, i also get that it was kinda stupid to say.. but i was 15... it was a simple question... i was a little jolly clowny kid. ctfo... CONTEXT, MORONS, CONTEXT)

(but in the case of the latter, it's usually because the individual isn't as unique as he/she imagines. ie: immaturity masquerading as imagined novelty)

  • The reason your arm feels numb is cuz you nod out and fall asleep on it and cut off the circulation. Be careful cuz you can permanently lose all use and feeling of your arm or leg or whatever it is you nod out on and it will be paralyzed for life. There is a medical term and it only happens to us addicts who nod out in weird positions and cut off circulation to our limbs. I had the same thing happen to my arm and it went away cuz i would actually go to bed then nod out in a sleeping position. It happened to my right leg also and i lost feeling in my foot for at least 6 months.

  • Very intelligent, kind hearted man. As a recovering opiate user myself, Kratom is the only thing that I’ve found to combat the physical withdrawals. There is still ALOT of emotional chaos that you must endure. It takes a helluhva lot of motivation and self accountability, but it’s doable. One thing I’ve noticed is, if someone doesn’t have a solid support system... a loved one that knows about the addiction and is willing to help/somewhat hold you accountable, the likelihood of self recovery being successful long term, is very low. I got to a point where I had to transfer almost my entire paycheck into a loved one’s account so I would have absolutely no way to buy anything. I would only recommend this if you can genuinely trust the person with your life. It’s worked for me so far. I will be making NOtown videos on my experience when I’ve been clean for a year or so.

  • 20:00 She is smoothing it on the bathroom floor because it does not matter where it is done. When I am really hungry, it would not matter if a pizza i get for free is just cheese or if it is pepperoni. It simply does not matter, im hungry now and soon i will be eating pizza. I think everything in life becomes like that for a real addict. it does not matter if you sleep in vomit and lick toilet floors since there will soon come a time that is worth so much more, times a thousand. Issues us ordinary folk have just pales in comparison to their issue of not having drugs in their system.

    Johan LarssonJohan Larsson8 dager siden
    • ​@Matthew Andrew Drake I am honored that you took the time to respond to me. You missunderstood me. The first part of my post is actually that annology you say: "it does not matter what kind of pizza it is I ate, it would still be pizza and I would be full". However, then I take that to it's next level and broaden it to be about their entire life -> If the high is strong enough it does not matter what kind of life I have or what I am doing, I will still have taken drugs and am becoming high". It is just swapping "satiating hunger" for "getting/being high" and "eating pizza" with "life". I am certain that there are sensations strong enough and people wired in certain ways that makes anything else except those sensations absolutly meaningless. Many other animals can be put in situations where they do whatever they can get the stimulus at the cost of everything else until they die, and our minds for sure have the same traps for us.

    • That’s a horrible analogy. The heroin equivalent to your analogy would be I don’t mind if I get powder, tar or pills. Or even a closer analogy would’ve been wouldn’t care whether I smoke snort or shoot...but you wouldn’t eat pizza off the bathroom floor right? Lol she was a wack job trust me

  • He’s walking a fine line...literally playing Russian roulette. This isn’t rare...millions of Americans..are “functioning addicts”.....He is just out of the closet. I don’t know which would be better....a stay at home mom who also takes care of her sick mom and has access to her fentanyl patches and pain pills but NOBODY knows or him who feels comfortable enough to tell millions of people he smokes the heroin because he sees what shooting up can do. He needs to see his worth, handle his daddy issues so he can help pull other functioning addicts out of the pit.

    • Most things people refer to as "punk" or "punk rock" just aren't in the slightest. But, by the original "definition" of punk, Blink-182 was punk for sure. I can't speak on anything they're doing currently because I have no clue what they're up to, but being punk is just being original or unique or true to yourself. It isn't about spikes or leather or trend following or even trend setting. But I'm just a fool. Kids today would call me an oppressive gatekeeper for stating such things lol

  • I understand that this video wasn't made to glamourise heroin use in any way but judging by some of the comments i fear it has minimised the impact of heroin use to some viewers . Don't be fooled by the likeness of Matthew (super chilled dude , i have to say ) heroin will either kill you or completely destroy your life .The title is very misleading (oxymoron ) as there is no such thing as a "Functional Heroin Addict" . I am now 51 years old and dabbled with drug use . ALL the people/friends that i knew of that did heroin are all dead or might as well be . Heroin is fucking evil
