  1. Is that why some individuals with supposedly very responsible or so called respectable jobs, or any number of highly qualified professionals are also prone to using hard drugs? Some on a regular basis? But appear to you and I as perfectly normal people.
  2. " I agree with Hocus Pocus when he says 'need'. I someone needs a high to feel goo that's a dangerous relationship with drugs. You need to get highs from your own life (job success, sporting success, self-development etc) naturally. This will also help artificial highs you take ie If your happy with how life is progressing, grabbing a few pints while watching the football is absolutely fine, whereas, If you're depressed, going to the pub (regularly) may lead to problems..." Or maybe we've created the social environment whereby unless you're successful, highly paid, a sports expert maybe have chiselled good looks and an all year tan you won't be as accepted as such? Or you could even be deemed to be a failure? Social exclusion is one of the biggest drivers, an increasing amount of people of all ages unfortunately fall into the trap of seeking 'highs' to possibly fill a void in their lives? Blot out the pain and thoughts of hopelessness? Binge eating, drinking, drugs to name a few. Same argument can be used for those who are simply obsessed with body shape and the many pitfalls and health problems this can possibly lead too. We are all, to a greater or lesser extent, social creatures and ultimately want to be seen to conform and be a valued part of the human race. Until such time or more is done to tackle the root causes, stopping problems re occurring at source, even to the point of acknowledging the fact that some pressures or issues in life may just be in the mind? As in not the actual true reality. Which then leads to the very next question. Why the hell are mental health cuts even being considered?
  3. Question then bodes as to why some countries take a slightly different stance?
  4. Hahaha!? O:) Crap I meant ...:o)
  5. A sensible answer or reply to this thread double LOL! Possible worldwide shortage of candy floss.
  6. Demonise? Yes, they'll do anything to try to look good. Or pretend. That is why more people are likely to despise them. Young and old.
  7. Have you tried their new eau de toilette? Eau de Kev.
  8. Not missing the heavy showers unless they're very thundery in nature.

  9. Interesting to see what would happen if say alcohol was banned and cannabis was legalised? Entire industries would be up in arms shouting and screaming and perhaps rightly so. Then there's the tax element. Quite obviously it is ingrained into the cultural and social fabric much like many other countries, questions then arise as to why some countries take a different stance on the matter.
  10. 10 years today the brumnado wreaked havoc,remember the day well.

      Yep...saw the front page of the Mirror...spotted the word "heatwave". Stopped reading as soon as I discovered the source of the story was the dribbling fool Madden.

      Im off work next week too. Thank god i didnt chose this week.

  12. To think someone has to pay extra for something just because it's been on the telly? Or because a so called celeb is paid shed loads to advertise it? And it's then supposedly more superior to other similar products. Gullible people need look no further LOL. There's been generations of them!
  13. Yes and more are beginning to think exactly the same. Peddling some half truths is one thing hiding behind a so called screen of respectability yet in reality, it's all a pack of lies. Same politicians who probably ignored advice regarding 24/7 licensing from those in the know. It is pretty much confirmed the world is now full of hypocrites, either that or more are becoming slightly less gullible to the lies and spin that some are prepared to use to try and protect their interests. All a load of yes, ask any semi sane person on the street.
  14. Salt and sugar are equally addictive and yet we see them or products associated with them on our screens every single day? Food industry love it, hidden away in our every day meals. Processed food beyond comprehension cheap cheerful not least crap.
  15. In its earlier days it was probably much frowned upon as a social so called nasty? Interfering with so called normality at the time. Countless scare stories later you can buy it in the shops.Sugar and salt is probably more addictive than anything out there, anyone up for a real debate yet?
  16. Also against the grain maybe, we have some (not all) prominent people happily bleating on about standards whilst totally ignoring the advice they're happy to dish out? Hypocrisy is in fact rife. Until such time this is perhaps acknowledged then a growing number of people will be more likely to stick two fingers up to the establishment. Contempt is a two way street, works both ways.
  17. When was the last time you heard reports of a brawl following several cups of strong coffee?
  18. Silly thing is caffeine or too much of can be a detriment to health and well being?
  19. Are we then overran with too many hypocrites SW Saltire? Simple question that some would find hard to answer.
  20. Read an interesting article highlighting Portugal not long ago. No, their world did not by all accounts cave in.
  21. Forgot to add up to six inches of snow for some the following day as northerly gales set in lol. A transitional day in the making will be 31st October.
