Opiate, is not a drug in itself but a term use to describe a drug. The term opiate means: relating to, resembling, or containing opium, in medicine this word describes any of the narcotic drugs found as natural products in the opium poppy plant. It’s any medication as prescribed by a physician, containing opium or its derivative. It’s used in medicine as an aid to induce sleep or to relieve pain. There are thousands of drugs or medications that are classified as opiates.
The moment a person is not willing to experience a situation, no matter how bad it may seem, and deal with it in a proper manner but instead searches out some chemical solution, he or she is heading toward a lifetime of constant pain and sorrow. A lost love does not get handled with a pill or glass of wine, a destroyed home will not be rebuilt with a line of cocaine and a child’s abuse does not disappear by taking methamphetamine just as a broken tibia will not suddenly become new again because a person is taking hydro-morphine. The opioid drugs have a specific use, and yes a person will be quite please to take it when his arm was broke or was amputated, but more importantly is dealing with the new condition not using chemicals to compensate for one’s lack of confront and courage to face life head on.
Opiates? They have their use. But happiness and the joy of living with all emotions is way better than a lifetime of suffering and slow death.
