HI All, The community that I work in has problems with alcohol, marihuana, and solvent inhalation. We are technically a 'dry' community. Alcohol causes the most injury due to physical violence and the most worry for us when we have to attend to the cuts and bruises as people seem to be more violent when drunk. Those how take the wicked weed seem to have more phsychosis, florid and otherwise. Usually this wears off and apart from worrying that they are going to run into the bush and do themselves some harm tend not to cause us too much grief. Solvent inhalation causes short term and long term illnesses related to lead ingestion and physchosis (The desired effect). The pyshchosis appears mild and apart from destroying their bodies cause us few problems. Me, as the health worker needing to release a little stress? Nearest cold beer is two and a half hours away and I don't smoke, so I take my swag and go bush for a night or two. There is nothing like being in the middle of nowhere by yourself looking up in to the vastness of the univerese and realising that there are many people who are a lot worse off than me. To those that use any chemical to relax, be careful that it doesn't get the better of you, I have had too many close friends and workmates who have. Take care Matt Mason Remote Nurse Central Australia
