I found out today that a guy I’m familiar with, have known for a couple of years and has served me many a beverage passed away yesterday/last night. It was so sad to find this out. Was he a friend? Well, yes. Were we close? Not at all, but when you know someone and have conversations with them, or even if you don’t, it’s sad and depressing when something happens to anyone, especially those you know.
With that, I really don’t feel like writing a bunch of stuff. I just want to say one thing. If you are doing drugs – and I don’t mean pot, I mean bad drugs – please reach out to someone. Step out of your circle of enablers and let someone help you. Call me! Contact me! I don’t know what I can do but I can either find help or just be an ear to spill to. It saddens me greatly to think that someone is in a way that they have to turn to opioids or other life-threatening substances. I understand that anything can kill you but when it’s something that is known to kill hundreds or thousands if not tens of thousands of people every day, do what you can to beat that. Fight for your life. If you feel it’s not worth continuing, talk to someone about that. Your life is worth more than you’ll ever know. Every life.
I know I don’t use curse words on this blog as I try to keep it clean for everyone to read so I’m leaving a disclaimer here… watch out.
FUCK DRUGS! FUCK HEROIN! FUCK COCAINE! FUCK THE AVAILABILITY OF IT!
I’ve been lucky and not had to deal with this before. To my knowledge, this is the first person that I’ve known that has gone out this way.
Kirby, you’re on our minds and I’m sorry we let you down. Someone should have stopped it before it happened.
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
