Am I a drug addict? Yes I am, although I haven’t used in nearly 5 days. That’s actually an achievement for me. They say you need to take your mind off of the drugs, off of using, stop hanging out with the same people, pick up a new hobby…all of those things sound like great ideas, but I don’t have the energy or the will to even move out of my bedroom. Withdrawal from heroin is not a fun experience and even getting to the point I’m at now wasn’t easy. I was just watching one of my favorite movies - “Gridlock’d” starring Tupac Shakur – watching someone inject dope (even if it’s not real) makes me think about calling my dealer. Instead, I decided I would start writing until the craving passes… at least until next time. I find myself watching movies about drugs, drug dealers, drug addicts…there must be a reason why these are all my favorite movies. So, I decided to make a list of the top ten drug movies of all time – this list has the official stamp of approval from a certified drug addict!
Comments: A true look into the life of a coke addict. I can definitely relate.
2) “Requiem For a Dream”
Comments: Any drug addict can definitely relate to this movie.
3) “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas”
Comments: It takes a while to get it..but definitely right on.
Comments: The “bad” guy is actually a very likeable character; this movie shows you the good and the bad side of drugs.
