Revolutionary Legacy

The system regime is Machiavellian and iniquitous, absolutely transpired of Arcadian reality and impervious to the non-existent prosperity of the microcosm of humanity. Eminent politicians are riveted only in intensifying their egotistical and egocentric ascendancy in power than to have equitable impartiality for the rectitude of collectivity. Influential interests have manipulated the full constitutional system for themselves. Rothschild has preponderance that dominates realms on Earth by the sagacious schema in reigning all the sacrosanct bank bureaus. Russia has antecedently dominated the plutonium thermonuclear “arms race” as the United States of America has lost the campaign preceding any tangible war.

A synergistic revolution with roots in anarchy and apostasy requires the amalgamation of the nations around Earth. This is expected to transpire adroitly to overthrow the system regime entrenched in place. Protest harmoniously until the peons of the scheming system adjudicates that it was too plenteous in the realm of upheaval and then contravene their judicial axiom of law to acquiesce proletariats to recalcitrate. Numerous individuals fascinate on how it is cogitable that the general populace has ratified such incapacitation and retrogression of the once-equitable system regime. It’s an irreducible conceptualization; the avaricious and concupiscent corporeality of politicians caused it all. Even the anonymous has collapsed temporarily. The final intelligentsia before the calamity of humanity can be ne’er discovered because the intelligentsia is anatomized into partitions in all of us. We are the anarchic-apostatic revolution, and it’s time to face it. The system regime is all that a corporate aristocracy craves to begin the Armageddon of the very essence in cosmos and chaos.

Fearmongering Addiction

There’s been a common theme going on that I’ve noticed recently, which is how people look down to drug addicts and wholeheartedly believe any stigma or stereotype surrounding addiction and drug users. There are groups of people that believe that addiction is just an attention whore trait or even a hoax made by drug addicts. The situation surrounding drugs in North America has reached cataclysmic properties because of the increasing rate of overdoses, addiction, and stigma.

I’ve observed that people try to assume they think they completely understand how an addiction feels like, or how it’s like for the addict. It’s something every addict knows yet it’s so mysterious to others who weren’t touched by addiction. I find it obscene and demanding when people imply heavily that the drug users can stop when they wanted to, with a snap of fingers. Some individuals who suggest that addicts have it easy usually hasn’t even laid their eyes on a drug, let alone struggled with real addiction. It shows how poorly educated people in general are, in regards to drug knowledge, which is morose.

Stigma around drug addicts is rampant around people in general because the news media has consistently featured horror stories about drug abusers and their crimes. I’ve always thought there was just one difference between regular crime and drug-related crime; the fact a drug is involved. There might be a higher incidence rate regarding theft in the drug addict group, but I’ve noticed that people act as if the crime would have never happened if there weren’t any drugs involved. I completely disagree with that statement because yes, of course, there are people out there who aren’t drug addicts and still commit theft. This also applies to any other crime that exists, because crime will still occur even if every single drug in the world was eradicated.

Now, what should people do when they encounter an addict is to realize that they are addicted to certain substances, but please don’t patronize them or act as if you know better. Do not be condescending; it never helps when your words slice through the addict like a knife. Try to empathize if you can, and try not to judge a book by the cover. Most importantly, just treat the users as if they’re human beings because they literally are. C’mon, people.

The Nicotine Paradox

I just joined the e-juice vaping club again today. I impulsively decided to blow approximately $200 on a personal vaporizer and tank, along with all the other necessary things such as a coil. I decided to opt for the non-nicotine e-juice since I wanted to blow clouds without having any drugs involved. I might go for a low-nicotine route in the future, though. I do realize that vaping nicotine is addictive, and there’s no way around that. That’s why I do want to discuss how vaping nicotine can be utilized in life, for better or for worse.

I see nicotine as a chemical that is indeed addictive but also a tool. It may be a maladapted coping technique in life that has affected many individuals with or without mental illness. It also may have saved several lives from horrible things like suicide; it’s possible that people found life to be much more bearable with nicotine. I know many people has spoken up about how nicotine can take over your life, and I don’t disagree with that. However, I will disagree with anyone that says nicotine is more dangerous than hard drugs such as heroin or methamphetamine. While nicotine probably equates with those drugs regarding how addictive the substance is, but in my opinion, only nicotine, in this case, can be utilized as a tool to improve life conditions. There are several scenarios, but I’ll just point out three that has stood out for me.

In the first situation, there could be people that are heavily addicted to a hard drug and has a particular fixation of exhaling smoke. They could benefit from nicotine, for lack of a better word, by simply seeing that they still can exhale smoke without having to resort back to the hard drug. I’ve known certain people that have told me this does help. In my opinion, using nicotine to avoid using other drugs completely makes sense. At least the person wouldn’t wind up in jail simply for possession, or even worse, get in trouble with local gangs due to the mounting prices of drug addiction.

Now, the second situation that I thought up about using nicotine for the better is the fact some people cannot cope with life without any escape. In other words, those people can’t face reality. In my opinion, if they were going to use hard drugs or anything like that as an escape, then I would prefer them to cope in life with nicotine instead of abusing dangerous street substances. Of course, there are healthier alternatives such as having a video gaming addiction or buying a virtual reality machine, but not everyone is that rich.

For the third situation, I wondered what it would be like if a person were so desperate for any relief, to the point they would try ending their life. In my theory, the introduction of nicotine as an aid could help at least just to cope in life. Anything about vaping can provide relief, and it could be from the nicotine buzz, but it also could be from simply doing the act of vaping. I do realize it sounds wrong to say that, but anything that saves a life is well worth it.

Those are just three situations I think could benefit from nicotine. I want to take a moment here and make sure people understand that vaping nicotine even in the cases I mentioned above can lead to severe addiction, there’s no beating around the bush about that. Deciding to vape nicotine as a coping technique can blow up in your face because after a period of vaping nicotine, people could get tired of the buzz and move on to other drugs which were the exact thing we wanted to avoid. Even with that possibility, I theorize that people can benefit from nicotine because nothing is worse than losing a person to street drugs or suicide.

Amotivation, Defeated!

So, guys. I just wanted to share something that has really helped me in the past few months in boosting my motivation and a general wellness in my life, both physical and mental. As many people do know, I have a mental illness that’s not just exclusively bipolar disorder. In this article, I’m going to explain how Habitica can appreciate your mental illness and maybe even improve some aspects of your life. Keep in mind I’m not promising that Habitica will definitely help you, only that I’m showing you how it has helped me ever since I discovered Habitica.

First up, I’m sure you’re wondering what Habitica is. It’s basically a gamified life to-do website program that’s also available on Android and iOS. Habitica enables the ability to level up and earn rewards for doing real life tasks that can be pressed or checked off once you do it. There are three main categories for tasks on Habitica which are Habits, Dailies, and To-Dos. Habits are basically things in life you try to build or break that’s good or bad simply by pressing the negative or positive button. Dailies are tasks that you need to do at least once a day, and it can be weekly or at specific intervals of time. Lastly but not least, To-Dos are basically one-time tasks that can have a date set to show you which one is due first. You can make checklists with To-Dos as well! What I just said is the basics of Habitica. It can take a bit to get acclimated to the ways of Habitica, but if it helps you, then it’s all worth it.

In the beginning, I had severe amotivation and anhedonia that was dragging on for well more than a year, and it meant that I lacked the ability to do basic things even though I did want to. I found Habitica when I was trying to find a good way to kickstart a routine, and what drew me to Habitica was the fact it employed RPG factors such as a level and XP and even mana, all related to what you do in real life. In the beginning, I only outlined what was necessary, such as brushing your teeth at least once a day, brushing your hair, showering, etc. Remember to make it very basic, at least in the beginning. Just look at what you need to do, and think that you can do one at a time. I looked at one and thought it would be better than nothing, so I got up and did it. I then checked the task off, which gave me a reward in the form of XP. I felt like I did something good, and thought it would be good for myself if I tried another task. This kept until I finished everything, and I told myself to pat my back and that it would be okay if I couldn’t do it all next time. However, Habitica helped me so much I kept doing it every day. This is how I got my motivation back. I would be lying if I said that I don’t struggle with amotivation anymore, but Habitica has certainly helped me encourage myself to do more than I expected every day.

I’m grateful for Habitica for allowing me to see my life in a different light and giving me the chance to experience real stability without suffering from negative symptoms.

The Big One

A cacophony of barking dogs,
Several fearful mewling cats,
A ‘what-was-that’ moment of silence,
Just as primal fear rises in acceleration.

A whole ocean,
Elevated,
Overtaking land.

The sudden destruction of forests and bogs,
Of several if not all habitats,
Feeling the destabilization of our balance,
Hoping that the unfolding cataclysm is a hallucination.

Everything in motion,
Agitated,
Generating a wasteland.

To The Protesters

A topic close to my heart is anything about cannabis and other items related to cannabis. There are several people out there in Canada that has been protesting about the legalization of cannabis. The protests have been going on for a long time, possibly ever since the Canadian prohibition of cannabis in 1923. However, if Justin Trudeau’s words are spoken true, then legalization is very close in the future. However, there has been several cannabis protests cropping up in cities across Canada. Some people has been wondering why, and I’ll explain one of the views of this. Some people feel that the government in Canada should make legalization of cannabis a high priority because of the medical effects cannabis brings to people with cancer, multiple sclerosis, nausea, poor appetite, and seizure disorders. Many people are suffering without the relief cannabis brings to them simply because it’s currently recreationally illegal and there are so few doctors that can legally prescribe it. That is one of the reasons for the protests.

I believe that it should be a priority for the government, but I also feel that people should avoid protesting about it since Justin Trudeau has already promised them all what they wanted, only that it needs to wait until Spring 2017. I think that is a relatively fast time frame especially for huge political decisions like the legalization of cannabis. Justin Trudeau and his party need to design a list of regulations that is reasonable and approved by certain people, and he also needs to have proper medical research that confirms the relief and improvement described by most cannabis patients. Justin Trudeau and his party also need to establish that it can be safely regulated among average people, such as a couple of grams per week, or something like that. The reason they’re doing this is not that they want the medical patients to suffer, but because they want to be responsible and not cause accidents like mass car crashes only because they overlooked one detail such as driving impairment. It’s serious business to run a country and not let it go into chaos.

I do admit that I have participated in cannabis protests in the past, so I’m not saying you shouldn’t join protests at all, but I do mean that it should be less loud and violent. The government is listening to you guys, after all. Have a protest on the sidewalk instead of blocking traffic. However, that’s just my opinion, and I would never judge you if you think it’s necessary to pull off a significant and loud protest to ensure the legalization of cannabis. In fact, I might join you!

When Suicidal Thoughts Spread

I’ve always felt strong about suicidal feelings and how the person reacts to the emotion. When you encounter a suicidal person, what do you do? Most people try to help or give them hope. Some others freak out and overprotect. Some people react with disdain or derision. A small portion of individuals even laugh and encourage it. Obviously, the following reactions can be very inappropriate, even illegal, and can sometimes cause tragedy.

Feeling suicidal is possibly the worst emotion you can feel in life. It’s despair, grief, despondency, pessimism, and apathy all packed in one emotion. I have felt this before, during some bouts of depression and bipolar dysphoric episodes, so believe me when I say that I know how it feels. I’ve also been the person supporting the suicidal person, so I also understand how it feels when you start getting triggered by the statements the person is making.

In my opinion, when you start getting triggered and sense your mood start falling because of the declarations the person is saying, you should excuse yourself from the suicidal person. It is never good when suicidal thoughts spread. Now, this doesn’t mean you should run away immediately. You should try to explain to the person about your current feelings and tell them that their feelings are still valid. Plus, say that even though you’re leaving, you’re still here for them by keeping them in your thoughts. Comfort the person and hug them. If the situation calls for it, refer them to someone more emotionally prepared for this kind of situation, such as a nurse, doctor, psychiatrist, therapist, or even a parent. In desperate scenarios, call the emergency services. I know this is something people don’t like doing, but if it saves a life, then it is all worth it.

Guilt Over Packs

One of the things that bother me about cigarettes is its packaging details. Honestly, do you think all the current smokers out there enjoy the guilt-trip every time they take a look at the pack? All the health-danger-warning “informal” pictures just instills annoyance and guilt in the smoker. It won’t stop them from smoking unless they genuinely want to quit.

A couple of lessons we learn growing up is the effects of cigarettes and how thousands of chemicals in the cigarette can affect you in life. Usually, after learning all about this, people often make a conscientious choice that either leads to complete avoidance of cigarettes or to try a cigarette. In this situation, the packaging images are effective, where it stops the soon-to-be smoker in their tracks doubting whether they should smoke or not.

In most other cases, though, it doesn’t help the smoker at all. Looking at the packaging images makes them fear, feel guilty, feel resentment, and emotions like that. This feeling snowballs into stress and anxiety, therefore triggering the need to smoke more cigarettes for some. I don’t think people participating in something legal such as cigarettes should suffer just because they do it.

If you’re having trouble relating to this post, simply imagine an area where cannabis was completely legal. Would you appreciate a packaging that was so full of images that cautioned the smoker that they would lose their memory and that cannabis would impair their education, etcetera, and it was enough to make you stress about it?

So, in conclusion, I am of the opinion that all images on a cigarette pack should be removed. I also think the tobacco companies should have their right to decorate the pack to their name-brand. I am also of the opinion that, when cannabis is legalized, it should not be sold in similar packs with images.
