    Lightbulb Pills, pills, pills every day of the week

    'Society' seems to be taking a lot of pills.

    In another thread, mention was made abut painkillers etc I thought it deserved a thread of it's own.

    There is the myriad of disclaimers in a font too small to read on a 50" screen.

    Pills to wake up, pills to go to sleep, pills to stop diarrhea, pills to cure constipation, pills to cure impotence, pills, pills every day. . .

    Pills to wake, pills to sleep
    Pills, pills, pills every day of the week
    Pills to walk, pills to think
    Pills, pills, pills for the family
    I spent a year suspended in air
    My mind on the gap, my head on the stairsFrom healers to dealers and then back againFrom guru to voodoo and voodoo to zenPills to wake, pills to sleepPills, pills, pills every day of the week
    Pills to walk, pills to thinkPills, pills, pills for the familyPills to grow, pills to shrink
    Pills, pills, pills and a good stiff drink
    Pills to fuck, pills to eat
    Pills, pills, pills down the kitchen sink
    I'm behind the wheelIā€™m leavinā€™ your state
    I canā€™t even swim in these waves I made
    From the bath to the drain, and the plane to the stage
    To the bed, to give head, to the money I made
    Pills to wake, pills to sleep
    Pills, pills, pills every day of the week

    Pills to walk, pills to think
    Pills, pills, pills for the family
    Pills to grow, pills to shrink
    Pills, pills, pills and a good stiff drink
    Pills to f*ck, pills to eat
    Pills, pills, pills down the kitchen sink
    I heard the tales, fortune and blame
    Tigers and wolves defanged by fame
    From the chains to the reins to the vein
    To the brain, anyway thereā€™s a day
    And Iā€™ll pay it in pain
    Pills to wake, pills to sleep
    Pills, pills, pills every day of the week

    Pills to walk, pills to think
    Pills, pills, pills for the family
    Pills to grow, pills to shrink
    Pills, pills, pills and a good stiff drink
    Pills to fuck, pills to eat
    Pills, pills, pills down the kitchen sink
    Pills to wake, pills to sleep
    Pills, pills, pills every day of the week

    Pills to walk, pills to think
    Pills, pills, pills for the family
    Pills to grow, pills to shrink
    Pills, pills, pills and a good stiff drink
    Pills to fuck, pills to eat
    Pills, pills, pills down the kitchen sink
    Pills to wake, pills to sleep
    Pills, pills, pills every day of the week

    Pills to walk, pills to thinkPills, pills, pills for the family
    Pills to grow, pills to shrinkPills, pills, pills and a good stiff drink
    Pills to f*ck, pills to eat
    Pills, pills, pills down the kitchen sink
    Come all you villains, come one and all
    Come all you killers, come join the war
    Come all you wasted, wretched, and scorned
    Come on and face it, come join the war
    Come climb the rafters, come out to space
    Come for the answers, throw them away
    Come kiss me stupid, come kiss me sore
    Come find me standinā€™ under the wall
    Come all you killers, come out to play
    Everyone you know will all go away
    Come all you wasting, wretched, and scorned
    Come watch me standin' under the wall
    Come all you children, come out to play
    Everyone you love will all go away

    Yes, but again, I meant dope. Pain pills. Which is what you were on about.

    I'm not, and nor was I, trying to fault ANYONE for taking medication, and I don't appreciate being quoted in this slander post. Gross, gross, and gross.

    Peace,
    Robert

    Pills to keep you alive.
    Without pills I'd be dead.

    Never ever said or implied that you were "trying to fault ANYONE for taking medication".

    Slander ? I think you might have meant to write 'libel'.
    Nevertheless there is no intention of libeling anyone.
    If you, or anyone, shows me how there is any libel, I shall immediately and without hesitation issue an apology. In fact, I hereby apologise in advance if there is any.

    The post is to discuss the extent that people in general take pills/medication and also the extent that it is promoted in advertising.

    You're not publishing. We're "talking" and you implied something untoward about people taking pills for everything. I know, it's subtle.

    You also quoted me for no reason, incompletely, and out of context.

    Peace,

    Everything you think, do, and say is in the pill you took today.

    I wonder if this post could be considered stalking or harassment?

    What's your deal?

    I won the genetic lottery, take no pills at all. 50 years ago acupuncture cured my migraines, and a sharp bang on the nose a little later my sinus problems.
    Got an A1 report last week but something will still get me one day……….

    During the final two weeks of my radiation treatments I was taking pain pills when I wasn't taking sleeping pills. With the sleeping pills I was taking naproxen sodium, the strongest over-the-counter pain med available. I needed sleep to maintain my strength. I needed the pain pills to be able to function physically. FUNCTION, as in urinating. And to be able to sleep. Try trying to sleep while in pain. Difficult. Sometimes the pills are necessary. I seem to have a natural inclination to stop taking pain meds as soon as I'm able to. The doctor still has me on ibuprofen on a regular basis, but I'm testing the need for these more frequently these days. I have successfully weaned myself off of the sleeping pills.

    Bottom line -- modern medicine is wonderful. The meds are there for a purpose, and that purpose is not to be popping pills like they were candy. The chocolate stuff is candy.

    I think that (whatever government agency was in charge) made a serious error in judgement when they allowed Big Pharma to hawk their wares on tv. Nowadays the standard 60-sec. commercial runs to 10 seconds of hawking the pill and 50 seconds of sotto-voce speed reading of side effects and contraindications. Playing right into people's hypochondriacal tendencies.

    NZ allows some TV advertising of medications. It is apparently part of a trade-off for our public health system buying drugs at discounted prices, but who really knows?
    There is nothing quite as permanent as a good temporary repair.
