Why does this woman assume Dan can’t shoot up in his own room?

It’s good practice to consume your near-lethal dose of drugs in a space where you might be found.

That’s … really sad.

Better to do drugs you can OD on in a place where someone might find you and be able to save your dumb ass than to do them in private and not be found until someone complains about the smell your rotting corpse makes.

God, this kind of upset me. I am a fairly chronic insomniac, and sometimes you do anything to go to sleep. I’ve hit liquor really hard before in an effort to knock myself out, something I have to be very careful to not become habit. Like I said, you get in that situation, you do ANYTHING to sleep, even if it’s bad for you. Especially if you have things to do in the morning.

Watching Dan do something similar to what I’ve done is really hard. I want him to get better so bad. I don’t know why I’m so tied up in it, he’s not real. Maybe it’s a little personal, because I’ve watched people tear themselves apart with drugs in real life. Maybe because he’s so well-written, and I kind of think of him as a person. I don’t know. This comic is really good, but it’s very hard for me sometimes.

Sorry for such a long comment! I end up writing a lot sometimes.

Honestly, high CBD pot is one of the best things for sleep, I find. I’ve always had insomnia, and growing up I tried everything. I just ended up giving up. A brief workout with a focus on cardio helps as well, but high CBD marijuana edibles do the trick nicely.

REASON TO BOTHER. That, changing your mindset, the way you face the world, that is the biggest obstacle to staying clean, not relapsing. Otherwise you’re just a dry drunk, an addict who’s broke or doesn’t know where to find the nearest dealer, constantly wishing for something to take the edge off or have some fun. Going through life like that, with a demon whispering in your ear, that’s no way to live, and only saints really manage that. Our culture highly stigmatizes anyone with this experience, assuming that everyone who drinks or does drugs or steals or kills or molests children faces the same level of temptation and possesses the same power of will as the average person. And instead of pity for those who are weaker or who face greater temptation or who live in squalor, often we meet them with disgust. A pathetic, weak, dirty, or diseased creature invokes disgust as often as it invokes pity. Dogs, the homeless, HIV+, drunks, addicts, hippies, the poorly educated, the disfigured… How often do we have compassion for them, as opposed to doing our utmost to move them out of our areas and conscious minds. No, no, even the vast majority of criminals deserve compassion. It is really a tiny minority who are truly broken beyond repair, completely separated from humanity by their own nature. And yet we treat them all like dirty dogs, like insects, afraid to touch or to smell them, hoping the light of day will drive them away.
Sorry about the rant. Just get sick of the resistance even good people have toward attempts to humanize or create sympathy for the disdained members of society. Hide them away, lock ’em up, kill ’em all, don’t make a fictional account of a life like theirs if they resemble dark success or a sympathetic lead. Hitler shouldn’t be charming. The Joker cannot win, or look like a victim. Don’t make Ed Kemper look insightful, pitiable, or even human.
