    im sitting here reading threads of lost freinds this christmas night while thinking of one of my own who passed on friday night or saturday morning he was 27 years old and a good freind , he had worked for me a while back i taught him how to paint . but couldnt calm him down he was a partier and liked to drink and do drugs and the thing he liked most took his life he od'd what a loss he could have been alot more and done alot better if he had not got into drugs let alone alcohol .

    to all you people young and old please if you do either of the above seek help its not healthy to over endulge in drugs and alcohol i know iv seen it first hand

    be careful every day and remember new years is coming , on that day think back to this thread and how you will be missed if you push your luck as my freind did

    My condolences to you,and thank you very much for caring enough to post this very meaningful post. It is worth more than all the "Gold at Fort Knox" Drugs and Booze are a bad combination and it's a message all our young people need to hear!:sad2:

    I've also lost a few people who where close to me over the years because of drug use! It really sucks! They fall into the grasp of these drugs and slowly slip away till they are gone! So very sad! I'm not one to preach as I like to tip a few beers but the drugs thing is real bad. Heroin, Cocaine, Crack, Meth, etc. once you get yourself involved with these substances you are heading for BIG trouble!

    its not just the ilegal drugs that take lives , as in my freinds case it was prescription drugs painkillers , downers , relaxers any drug used the wrong way or abused can and will effect you in a bad way , adhere the warnings we want to be around to tell more fish stories when we get old

    Hey Charles,
    I so sorry to hear about any lost of a friend. :sad_2a:

    You know that I understand, because I find myself thinking about Phil (Deltalover) Gaines each and everyday.
    That's why the up & coming Gathering that that Ray (Bayrunner Ray) is trying to put together in March of 2007 at the California Delta will mean so much to me.
    But I don't want to turn this into that, I guest that I'm just trying to say that I fill your pain Brother.
    (Just hang in there Buddy)
    :too_sad:

    You Take Care Buddy,
    Bert:cool2: & Shaina:0010:

    Charles, thanks for sharing this story. I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your friend.
    I too have seen first hand what drugs and alcohol can do to a person having lost a good friend to the same situation. I hope anyone in this situation does seek help. Theres too many things in life that are too valuable to loose especially ones life.

    Sorry about your loss.

    I know what you are going through Charles. My best friend shot himself about 10 years ago right before christmas. He was addicted to cocaine, and went schitzophrenic, tried to kill his girlfriend's baby, and killed himself. The thing that was wierd was, I didn't even know what was going on 'till it was too late. We all were partying back then, but I didn't know to what extent he was into it. I've been sober (well I drink very moderatly) ever since. Hang in there, and don't get too down about it. I'm always thankful that I didn't become an addict, and still have the rest of my life to enjoy.
