Wish you were here: (non-combo) drug crisis
« on: August 21, 2006, 09:20:38 PM »
A friend had a cocaine crisis this weekend, n finally decided to do something about it.  Somehow this song seemed right. He didn;t die or get arrested (quite).

Wish You Were Here

So, so you think you can tell Heaven from Hell,
blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail? A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?

And did they get you trade your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees? Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change? And did you exchange
a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?

How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl,
year after year,
running over the same old ground. What have we found?
The same old fears,
wish you were here.

- matt

Good luck to your friend. Sounds like he really dodged a bullet.

Stuff like Coke and Meth terrify me.

Even though you have to recognize and accept the limits of your power in this kind of situation with anyone, see if he's willing to go to a Steps meeting to deal with his addiction...and yes, it is an addiction.

Good luck.

Cheers,
