I once told a joke about a straight person.
They came after me in droves.
Each one singing the same:
Don’t fight fire with fire.
What they mean is: Don’t fight fire with anything.
Do not fight fire with water.
Do not fight fire with foam.
Do not evacuate the people.
Do not sound the alarms.
Do not crawl coughing and choking and spluttering to safety.
Do not barricade the door with damp towels.
Do not wave a white flag out of the window.
Do not take the plunge from several storeys up.
Do not shed a tear for your lover trapped behind a wall of flame.
Do not curse the combination of fuel, heat, and oxygen.
Do not ask why the fire fighters are not coming.
When they say: Don’t fight fire with fire.
What they mean is: Stand and burn.Stand and Burn by Claudia Boleyn. (via claudiaboleyn)
while you’re high on opiates, sober life doesn’t seem that bad.
then that first morning of sobriety hits you and you’d rather be dead.
All they see is the girl who does drugs, they don’t see the reasons why she does and they don’t see how badly she struggles.. how much she hates the girl she’s become.
I saw you at your worst and I stayed. You saw me at my best and you still left.
Alright, now I’m ready for this stressful situation..
One of the worst things about being a junkie is waking up without any shit.
