Position Desired: Junkie

Another model-junkie friend is going back to prison – again. For a year – or more. Violated her probation – peed ‘dirty’ – can’t keep off drugs. Too bad, right? Right. Today she’s hating herself more than ever.  What’s a word beyond ‘humiliation’? Devastation? She’s devastated that her two-year old son will learn someday that his Mommy is a JUNKIE – from the flapping tongue of a relative or “friend”.

It won’t even matter if she breaks her needle avocation. Unless you’re someone who has the money and talent of someone like a Britney or Lindsay – and she doesn’t – you’re going to wear the red-letter ‘A’ – Addict – FOREVER.  “Once a Junkie, always a Junkie.” And if you ever kick it and try your best to be a good Mom, there certainly will be enough hateful stares at the PTA meeting and church to make you feel ashamed.

Well, she did it to herself, right? Right – no denying that. And of course she should be punished, right? Of course. But she’s taking down some good people too.

Like YOU – and me – and every single American who’s ever paid a dime in taxes.

Christian punishment doesn’t come cheap, you know. Thousands and thousands of dollars have been spent to investigate this one junkie – to pee test her,  put her through Drug Court, State Drug Rehab, local drug rehabs, drug and mental health treatment progams,  County Jails,  State Prison and vocational rehabilitation programs. Money to fill the streets with Zero Tolerance cops and overtime, to pay all the counselors, correction officers, court officers, public defenders, parole boards and border patrols. And, the most expensive items? All the crimes she’s committed against us for her drug money and future ‘entitlement’ programs.

I’ll bet this one junkie has cost taxpayers over $1,000,000 in the past 8- years. Now multiply that by millions of junkies with a failure rate of over 90%.

The answer? Legalize heroin and give it to anyone with a doctor’s prescription. A government dose would cost less than 50-cents. Crime and disease would plummet.  Fewer families would be devastated.

Wouldn’t she take too much and kill herself? Not my problem, man.  As it stands today, it IS my problem – and yours too.

The Journey of Crystal’s Angel

© 2009 Frank Paolo

Crystal’s Angel has a daunting task. In addition to being the Guardian Angel of a beautiful, young drug addict, she must now take “Crystal’s Journey”, a symbolic walk through the countrysides of Heaven representing Crystal’s long trek through the horrors of addiction.

Along the way she meets a host of characters – from a wise, old, sarcastic cat named Chickensalad (“Honey, if you need help, why don’t you call Lassie?”), to a disgusting troll who entraps her and will let her out only by paying him in tears (“Tears – you bimbo!  Whadja think we charged on this part of the trip – pesos?”) to the world’s laziest dog (“Cutie, will you push the buttons on the remote for me?”)  to swarms of deadly white bees with extra-long stingers that inject her with the sweet poison that makes Crystal high and many more.

The Journey of Crystal’s Angel is a short book based on an addict’s long road to recovery.  It’s filled with horror, hope, humiliation, humor (lots of humor) outrageous characters, raw language, crushing defeats and, eventually, an inspiring triumph of the human spirit.  It’s no fairy tale – it is based on some women addicts I’ve known.

Many of you know I am a published author of non-fiction. How to Make a Great Presentation in 2-Hours (Lifetime Books; 1992) went into a second printing in less than a year.  It’s still being legally published in some countries and pirated in three more (including China). “Crystal’s Angel” is my first book of fiction.

Currently I am finishing up a few chapters and looking for an illustrator. In addition to the normal channels of book distribution, I hope it will become a featured read in groups like Narcotics Anonymous and drug rehabilitation centers.

If you know an addict who believes in Angels – or you believe in Angels – or if you believe in an addict who believes in Angels, and would like more information, please contact me at fpaolo1@rochester.rr.com

Position Desired: JUNKIE

Wednesday, January 28th, 2009

Another model-booster-junkie friend is going back to prison – again. For a year – or more. Violated her probation – peed ‘dirty’ – can’t keep off drugs. Too bad, right? Right. Today she’s hating herself more than ever. She’s too humiliated to tell her family but, of course, they’ll know pretty soon. What’s a word beyond ‘humiliation’? Devastation? She’s devastated that her two-year old son will learn someday that his Mommy is a JUNKIE – from the flapping tongue of a relative or “friend”. I’ll bet the first time he hears it, he’ll be too young to know what it means. That’s OK – he’ll learn fast enough.

It won’t even matter if she breaks her needle avocation. Unless you’re someone who has the money and talent of someone like a Britney or Lindsay – and she doesn’t – you’re going to wear the red-letter ‘A’ – Addict – FOREVER.  “Once a Junkie, always a Junkie.” And if you ever kick it and try your best to be a good Mom, there certainly will be enough hateful stares at the PTA meeting and church to make you feel ashamed. Kid overnights? Not at your house, honey. You’d probably drag out the starter needles sometime between cupcakes and Twister.

Well, she did it to herself, right? Right – no denying that. And of course she should be punished, right? Of course. But she’s taking down some good people too.

Like her son and her family? Oh sure – but someone more important.

Herself? Noooo. She did it. She’s just a junkie – they’re not worth much.

Then who?

YOU, dumbass! And me – and every single American who’s ever paid a dime in taxes.

Christian punishment doesn’t come cheap, you know. Thousands and thousands of dollars have been spent to investigate this one junkie – to pee test her,  put her through Drug Court, Willard Drug Rehab, local drug rehabs, drug and mental health treatment progams, Wayne County Jail, Monroe County Jail, Ontario County Jail, and vocational rehabilitation programs. Money to fill the streets with Zero Tolerance cops and overtime, to pay all the counselors, correction officers, court officers, public defenders, parole boards and border patrols. And, the most expensive items? All the crimes she’s committed against us for her drug money and future ‘entitlement’ programs.

I’ll bet I could document a case that this one junkie has cost taxpayers over $1,000,000 in the past 8-years. Now multiply that by millions of junkies with a failure rate of over 90%.

The answer? Legalize heroin and give it to anyone with a doctor’s prescription. A government dose would cost less than 50-cents. Crime and disease would plummet.  Fewer families would be devastated.

Wouldn’t she take too much and kill herself? Not my problem, man.  As it stands today, it IS my problem – and yours too.
