Everybody’s Gotta Learn Sometimes.

If there’s something to be learned from Amy Winehouse’s death, it’s that I need to stop playing around with my health. I may be a prescription drug addict, but I’m an addict nonetheless. I’m a junkie. There, I admitted it.

Codeine is my mistress. Failing that, antihistamines or cough medicine. Any quick fix for the anxiety. I need to stop.

  1. This is what Russell Brand wrote about Amy Winehouse and I totally see myself behaving in the way described below:

    “All addicts, regardless of the substance or their social status share a consistent and obvious symptom; they’re not quite present when you talk to them. They communicate to you through a barely discernible but un-ignorable veil. Whether a homeless smack head troubling you for 50p for a cup of tea or a coked-up, pinstriped exec foaming off about his “speedboat” there is a toxic aura that prevents connection. They have about them the air of elsewhere, that they’re looking through you to somewhere else they’d rather be. And of course they are. The priority of any addict is to anaesthetise the pain of living to ease the passage of the day with some purchased relief.”

Send me love.
