Americans more likely to die from opioid overdose today than car accident

Quote:On average, 130 Americans die each day after overdosing on opioids, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Last year, 70,237 deaths were caused due to drug overdoses, with opioids being the main cause, according to another CDC report from last December.

U.S. Life Expectancy Drops for Third Year in a Row, Reflecting Rising Drug Overdoses, Suicides

On average, life expectancy across the globe is steadily ticking upward—but the same can’t be said for the United States. Three reports newly published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention highlight a worrying downward trend in Americans’ average life expectancy, with the country’s ongoing drug crisis and climbing suicide rates contributing to a third straight year of decline.

Wouldn't that depend on the particular person? Since i don't use drugs of any kind, it's unlikely i would die from an opioid overdose. IOW, the risk is even higher among drug users. There is even a danger these days of fentanyl laced mj.

I can imagine how scary it must be buying illegal mj in countries that are still dragging their knuckles on its legalization, thank goodness it's legal here and I don't have to worry what it is laced with.

As per the study below, I have resumed smoking mj now that my kids are grown adults and I basically don't have any obligations to look after anybody else so I am free again and I am also sharing my sis' painkillers now that those aches and pains due to old age have settled in, and I will say that the painkiller she has is fantastic, not only does it relieve all pain but it makes us feel young again. The question is now will be become so tolerant of the painkiller that we will need more and more to get that same pain-free and good feeling?

Quote:Since 1999, the number of drug overdose deaths involving opioids in the U.S. has quadrupled, totaling over a half a million fatalities during that period.

Quote:Women are the fastest growing demographic of alcohol and drug use in the United States, according to the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (NCADD). As many as 4.5 million women over the age of 12 have a substance use disorder (SUD), 3.5 million misuse prescription drugs and 3.1 million regularly abuse illicit drugs. Among girls ages 12-17, nonmedical use of prescription painkillers, alcohol, methamphetamine and many other illicit drugs now either match or exceed that of boys the same age.[10]

Of the 6.5 million Americans who misused or abused prescription drugs in 2013, more than half were female.[

Quote:Perhaps the most surprising demographic of Americans who are using more drugs than in the past are adults over age 50. This group is made up of baby boomers, which includes people who were born between 1946 and 1964. In many instances, these individuals stopped using drugs as they were beginning families and have now resumed use and abuse as a result of having fewer professional and familial responsibilities. This is also the generation that was historically obsessed with drugs, sex and rock-and-roll.

Quote:Perhaps the simplest explanation for the increase in substance abuse in America is our collective mental state. Several employee surveys have shown that American workers are struggling with high levels of stress and anxiety related to job security, income and the threat of discrimination.

Yes, opioids tend to become less effective. They also promote an anabolic imbalance which can lead to many more ailments. It's best to look for natural remedies such as herbs and essential oils. You might also consider boosting your negative ion exposure with things like orgone, etc.

I haven't yet investigated if my sis' painkillers are opioids or not, but I doubt it. My natural remedy is MJ as well as a good diet and keeping everything moving. I also use a crystal for healing. It's good enough for now.

Pain meds have another little discussed side effect- rebound. Some meds will eventually start causing your symptoms that you are trying to treat.

Trade those pain killers for CBD oil.

If you grow your own you don't have to worry about what is in it and can smoke all you want for pennies. If you grow your own then you can even make your own high quality CBD oil that even has THC in it to make it complete. If you want to do even better you can grow a strain of cannabis that is high in CBDs.

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice

Hi Kreeper, yeah, we intend to grow our own when the government says we can - they need to get their share of the money grab right now.

The painkillers we take, I do not take every day, rather I only take it when having bad days like when I fell on the ice the other week and hurt myself, otherwise for me it is occasionally MJ and often the hot tub, and often the healing crystal. But the painkiller is a life saver, a life changer for us - and I use it in moderation.

I have fairly significant pain issues due to various broken bones including a broken back that's stabilized with a metal rod.

It takes essential oils, negative ions and frequency generators. Just yesterday a slew of orgone products from Etsy arrived. Two are chakra orgone eggs. Just holding them produces a noticeable pulse.

A miracle of sorts occurred while unwrapping the box that had quite a few different items in it. By the time they arrived yesterday, I was in the worst state of anxiety and shakes I've ever experienced in my life by a long shot. Nothing like that feeling had ever come close, and there was little or no reason for being sooooo out of balance.

It's possible that it could be the added electronics AT&T and T-Mobile have added here recently in response to hurricane Michael as they repair everything. Both AT&T and T-Mobile promised to add more of their internet and possibly phone electronics here by the end of last year. They are both lower frequency than 5G but it's still more invisible "soup stock." T-Mobile has added 42 sites in the area, plus are adding their 600 MHz LTE.

T-Mobile says their products works twice as far from their towers and four times more effectively. IOW, they are cooking my goose pretty good.

I was literally shaking and the most upset I've ever been in my life for the longest period of time. It was ridiculous - approaching a near psychotic state. it went on and was worsening for a couple hours.

It took about 3 minutes to unpack everything. By the end of unwrapping everything, my mental emotional state was nearly back to normal! My mind was still bothered slightly, but it was well under control.

My understanding of orgone energy is superficial at best. So my attitude about it has been "Hmm, I dunno how much orgone could really do?" My initial exposure to it was always tainted it in my mind. Namely, the orgone accumulator which was a sex vitality box created by a doctor who ended up dying in prison. The reports are that he was pretty vague about how orgone is supposed to work, too.

There's nothing to report on the sex aspect. I'm much more interested in my muscles and connective tissue. If they were to feel great, that would be like an orgasm only better.

So glad to hear you are feeling better, but how an organite device is made is rather odd:

Quote:An orgonite is composed of resin, metal shavings and a tiny bit of quartz. The ground rules to make a functional orgonite are quite simple: A mix of about 50% resin, 50% metal shavings. Any metal is good"

Some of them also include wool.

I would think the added elements of wool and metal may absorb the negative energies if a person was unable to let it flow freely through their body, if there was a blockage.

I am able to unblock negative energies through meditation and deep breathing, then use the crystal for an added measure. I also tried Kundalini with the crystal once but it was too much intensity and I became dizzy. Maybe I will give it another try soon.

After my mom had breast cancer surgery she was left with some neurological pains at night. Her doctor suggested she buy a sheep skin to sleep on which she did. She's never had those pains since day one of getting that skin to sleep on.

How awesome is that!

Will have to look into it as far as availability and cost!
