Undisclosed Drug Use

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 6:04 pm Wed 17th October 2018

The female of the species is well known for hiding what they think you may not like in order to get the attention of a male.

Leaving aside alcohol and cigarettes, there are other addictions that are disruptive and sometimes dangerous within relationships.

Meths use amongst females is perhaps more obvious but sugar and food addictions and prescription drugs perhaps less obvious.

What are your experiences of hiding drug use or other addictions in relationships?

Perhaps you have been the guilty party or someone close to you.

    Well this was undisclosed, but burst into the light of day, with a bang …

    Two people have been burnt in an explosion while huffing butane at a house in Hamilton. 

    Residents around the Hamilton East suburb were woken to a loud “boom” around 4.10am on Friday. 

    Initial calls to the fire service reported a house fire but it turned out there had been an explosion in a room at a home on Coates St. 

    Two residents at the house were using a butane cannister to huff in a small room, Waikato police Senior Sergeant Scott Miller said. 

    Somehow, possibly through a cigarette or open flame, it has ignited, causing an explosion in the room that’s blown out the windows and shaken the house. 

    Both the man and woman at the home suffered non-life threatening burns, Miller said. 

    Who … sits in a house and ‘huffs butane’?

    Gambling is another issue that shows up when hope is lost. TAB, on-line gambling, casinos, overseas scams, churches all play roles that impoverish families. My partner made it difficult for me to care for her when she was dying from Parkinson Disease, by her gambling. The doctors (Privacy Act) and drugs made the situation much harder for me to handle.

    Sorry to hear it Murray.
    I hope things a peaceful now.
    Must have been very difficult indeed.

  4. MurrayBacon says:

    I read stories of couples, where the man’s gambling later left the wife homeless, so I was fortunate to get off lightly. But I can’t see me taking the same gamble again.

  5. MurrayBacon says:

    I am a bit of a thrill seeker and i would guess it would be quite dramatic to blow a room up like that.
    They almost qualified for a Darwin Award.
    It seems an indictment of our society, that butane would seem attractive. Maybe someone should invent a mental health system or an organisation to protect children?

  6. Downunder says:

    #2 Amazing how much someone can put in a short comment.

    I thought about that for a moment, Murray, and felt like I had read a book.

  7. MurrayBacon says:

    If done in the open, butane is much safer than the failed psychiatric drug candidates (falsely advertised by the media and politicians as “synthetic marijuana”).
    So maybe it isn’t such a stupid idea after all?
    Makes real marijuana seem like the best choice.
    I suppose it will take years before we can work out how to setup political bribes, taxes and controls on it?

    Who speaks for the children when both parents are addicted:

    Children are being admitted to hospital suffering serious harm from cannabis or synthetic cannabinoids use – some of them poisoned by their parents’ drug paraphernalia.

    Among them were siblings aged 5, 8 and 15 from Porirua, revealed this month to have eaten food prepared with a contaminated cooking implement. Speaking at the time, Detective Senior Sergeant Grant Ferguson said the young children were “severely affected” and lucky to survive. “This stuff is very dangerous and it’s shown recently, nationally, that it’s fatal.”

    In 2018 we see for the first time drugged driving causing more fatalities than drunk driving.
