Quick note: Very few people who shoot drugs die from an overdose. Like, very few. Most either do it for a while and stop when it burns them out, or they live a wraith-like existence and die from something else. TV has lied to you.
Probably the smartest thing Patrick has done in quite a while. At least he's recognizing the problem, but whether he does anything about it remains to be seen. He's only passing up this first time, but when withdrawal really sets in, it won't be so easy.
Opioid Epedemic NOT FAKE NEWS
Gibson-Not sure when this comment was composed or originally posted given the patreon lag, but I am disappointed by the sentiment behind it and the misinformation it espouses. Not sure what is going on in Canada, but the numbers in America indicate an alarming increase in opioid deaths. Some of those are prescriptions but those have plateaued as they’ve become harder to get while heroin and fentanyl rates continue to climb. I get that Patrick is shooting coke here, but for you to minimize the dangers of shooting drugs doesn’t seem to adhere to reality. Sure, people are capable of using drugs whose potency they understand in a manageable way, but not every person shooting up is in that position. If your point is just that most people who do drugs don’t die from it, then that is true but not particularly interesting.
