The Lies About Drugs
There are many lies about abusing drugs which the general population believe are true, which opens the door to illegal drug use. These lies, to name a few, are:
- That drugs just run themselves out of the body and only have short-term effects.
- That all drugs approved by a government agency are safe and have no side effects.
- That all drugs “help.”
- Drugs can fix a problem or disability.
- That an addictive drug, used for medicinal purposes, is acceptable.
Just because a drug is deemed legal does not mean it isn’t addictive; safe or good to use. Sure, there are times when it is medically necessary and serves a good purpose, and it can even be life-saving, to take certain drugs in certain circumstances. But all drugs have side effects and some are more addictive than others.
True help and true cures take a problem away with the smallest amount of damage as possible to the individual and the least amount of side effects.
Most drugs merely mask a physical or mental problem. They do not make the disability vanish. Drugs also come with a large down-swing when one is coming off them. This is not a fix. It’s like putting duct tape on an exhaust pipe of a car—it may last a few days but there are odd smells, burning and the hole or crack will return. Plus the exhaust pipe will now need to be cleaned or completely removed because of the long-term no-fix of the problem. Drugs mask symptoms. They don’t mask symptoms very well though.
In the US, the word medicine has been butchered in meaning. In Latin, the word “Medicus” means “physician” and the word “physician” meant “things related to nature.” Addictive Drugs are not natural or “of nature.” When an individual smokes marijuana he is smoking the smoke, the chemical produced by fire and marijuana combining and com-busting…this is not a natural substance. The same can be said for all addictive drugs…They are chemically manufactured substances, manipulated and chemically altered to create various and wide mental or physical detachment—that is not “of nature.”
The true answer to drugs is to not do them. And if one does do them then come to Narconon and rid oneself of the effects of these drugs and get educated in the tools necessary to overcome the problems one couldn’t address with any other “solution” rather than drugs.
