Devil's Candy

I have just been thinking about drugs- street drugs, and their deception on the minds of those who use them.

I used to take drugs, to experiment and have a 'good time'. I'm relieved to say that i don't anymore- i even stopped smoking last year, so i'm no longer dependant upon anything earthly! It affected my mind though, and my thinking pattern is certainly not as it was before. I am having group therapy at the moment to re-set my habit of thinking that i gradually got into over years of drink and drugs, and i thought i would never get out of the rut.

'Drugs','gear','blow','billy','charlie','trips','magic mushrooms'etc- they all sound so colourful and cartoon-like, as if they have a cute and fashonable(man) character of their own.

They certainly change the character of the unfortunate who takes it.

As there is always a 'come down'- a price to pay, there is a far darker and permanent side compared to the temporary party of it all. It is worse than physical illness in a big way, for it gives birth in the mind- the very place that holds your fears, memories, assumptions,and decisions, including the things we often tell ourselves.

It cannot easily be seen, which means that the problems are already set in by the time it is noticed- sometimes it is quite late for immediate recovery.

This can be very gradual and subtle, and combined with all the extra enhancement, these experiences and responses to them are fed into the subconscious- dangerously confusing,i know.


Another, not so popular name for drugs, is 'The devil's candy'.

However, one who enjoys 'chilling out' would hardly announce they have just 'scored'some 'devils candy', or,'satans sweets'.

Addiction also loves to deny it's existance- how ironic.

But the greatest deception, i think,is the feelings and thoughts that convince the individual that they have seen the light. They 'know' eveything there is to know about life- the secret knowledge- the wiring underneath the board.


For a 16 year old to think thay have seen all there is in life is not only tragic, but some youths actually take their own lives, in thinking thay now have an understanding with the universe.

Being vunerable enough to want to get 'out of it' means they are open to suggestive thoughts of all kinds- even worse, but it's all part of the package.

A few years ago, i had an idea about how to explain getting 'high' on Jesus, and reasons why it is the best feeling ever.Please feel free to add your ideas too- i know there are loads.


1/ You don't need an artificial substance,and so the feeling is not self enduced. It costs nothing, yet becomes everything-all you need, and you can be anywhere to be with Him.

2/ The thing that puts a real ZAP into it, is the fact that it is the TRUTH and very real.

3/ There are no heart pulpitations,stomache rushes- no hallucination or deception, and guess what! There is NO 'come down', just true knowledge as you journey (not 'trip') through life.

IT TRUELY IS A BEAUTIFUL REALISATION. FORGET THE JIMMY HENDRIX EXPERIENCE-HE DIED BECAUSE OF DRUGS.TRY THE JESUS EXPERIENCE-HE LIVES FOREVER!

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Good for you! I have friends who just can't seem to find their way out of the party way of life. They know they are slaves to their addiction but they can't crawl out of it. It's amazing that you are a survivor and are now clean. That takes a lot and is proof that their is a God! Thanks for writing about your experience. It gives me hope for others.

A very timely message and so important to hear from a 'survivor'. God bless you, because I read this, I have a renewed sense of hope for my loved ones, who are in the midst of 'devil's candy'. Thank you so much! Who better to teach those of us who haven't really been there of the 'trip' than one who has and knows of which they speak. Thank you for speaking.
