Weed is not a gateway drug.
Alcohol is not a gateway drug.
Nicotine is not a gateway drug.
Caffeine is not a gateway drug.
Trauma is a gateway, abstinence of parents is a gateway, and child is a gateway. Substances are not the cause of the downfall in a mental illness. The rejection and pain are the doors in which so many of us where forced to go through. I wake up every fucking day wondering how the fuck I am still here?
Quit blaming substance and hold the parents accountable for not being there, being abusive when they were around, and extremely passive aggressive… None of us and I mean NON of us chose to be born under this dying sun we where all forced out and expected to just understand how everything works. How the fuck am I supposed understand 10,000’s different forms of Christianity? Or even pick the one closest to my views? Life is fucking hard and being traumatized and rejected is how most of my generation grew up.
Substance helps me make it through my days so don’t blame it on being the gateway when the fucks who want to make this shit impossible to get are the very ones that caused trauma and rejection, creating the gateway.
