I want to quit addiction!

This is about my very close friend who is a addict. I don’t know what is this addiction known as globally but here in Kolkata people call in “Dendrite Addiction”. Dendrite is a adhesive glue used to paste some broken things and the smell is breath taking. Dendrite is put into some plastic bag and then the smell or odour is inhaled through nose or mouth. This is a chronic disease which can lead to kidney failure, liver disease, damage to bone marrow, nervous system breakdown, memory loss to name a few. If a person is seriously addicted to dendrite then he can live a life of maximum ten years.

Question arises why people do inhale dendrite? In most of the cases here, the main reason which I found is that when you inhale dendrite you don’t feel hungry. But when you are starving and there is no food to have, may be it seems easier to inhale this to supress appetite or hunger. This is very pathetic situation to feel. And mostly the addicts are street side children and school students. I personally feel very sorry for their life’s condition.

Rohit(name changed) is a very good person by heart. He is good at studies, optimistic, helpful, enthusiastic etc. Overall a nice person to be with, which I believe. But unfortunately he is a “dendrite addict”, he wants to quit it but he can’t help stop inhaling. Few days back, he was taking dendrite along a quiet road and suddenly two policemen came. First they slapped him hard, then in the next move they took him with them and thrown him behind the bars. He begged them to let him go but police always have deaf ears, all those persons are hungry for money. After, 5 hours someone informed his parents. They came to the police station terrified, requested the officials to release him but it was of no help. The officials kept him in the prison till next morning.

I have been to his house, I had a brief talk with him about the matter. He was very sorry for what he did. He was apologetically saying that for him his parents went to jail, which I feel is very unfortunate act which one could do being a child. When asked,"why don’t you quit dendrite?” he told that, “I want to quit it. Even I have minimised the number of times of inhaling dendrite. I can’t completely stop it. I want to but I can’t because when ever the urge for inhaling dendrite comes then nothing except a tube of dendrite & a poly bag can make him calm and once they are in my hands i can’t resist to inhale them.” His parents are aware of the fact that society will make fun of their family, may be people even dislike him for his this habit. But they seriously needs a doctor for him. I know they want their child to experience hell at this age of early 20s.

He needs help. He asked me for some homeopathy medicines for quitting dendrite. I am into my research for him. Found some rehabilitation centres in Kolkata. If someone can give any more information on this regard then it may save someone’s future. Please! it is not possible for me to eradicate these nuisances & nasty practices alone. I need your help, support & love. Leave comments on how can you help people around you to quit chronic addiction. Help them, save life.

even i am a dendrite addict ...many a times i have been to religious places for the sake of parents, but i knew that it wouldn't help me out ..i am still suffering but recently i have a urge to be stable in life and the curiosity toward earning money has helped me out . still date i am not serene but i am able to minimize the use ..i dont know whether i can leave it or not but i have a felling that i can leave dendrite ..work is the most important part of my life and only this is the cure for me ...

I can understand Saptarishi. The friend of mine now have minimised the use of dendrite. Keep your self realisation that dendrite is going to harm u.. It will affect your happiness of your own life. God Bless.

I've been doing a bit of reasearch on this my self....This world in which we live in...isn't real.....Its just a long dream shared by a common group of people...Don't know common or not....My world begins and ends with ME.....Dendrite is a "time machine drug".... Hallucinations are the catch dat brings dem back...We all here are a bunch of confused people who keep wondering that for what purpose have we been born? Universal question.... Dendrite gives us a sneak peak at what we have done so far...and its WYSIWYG drug... Fa more important...I keep getting messages from another world....Its the day when I Find out this Loop dat people are being set into...is da day I hope we all rejoice...That is after death only one can actually find out what DEN is.... Basically I luv my lyf....but still DEN attracts me coz....in no other drugs do I find this feeling...It says "YOU are constantly being watched!And dat U've taken birth for a purpose...Find out what dat is...."

After a few shots our mind enters into a subconscious phase whose dealings can be momentarily felt...but its hard to recollect....It took me a lot of my memory to sit for this blog's review...+ U keep hearing some songs that were designed for u only....and u snap back to reality with partial memories saying dat dont consume....But y not? Coz the day I figure this out I will repent/rejoice" Kudos.... Smiling faces at the end....All in 4 Hallu.. Time seems to get paused and environment settles down.....A friend at this time or video recording gives us a view of this world...But What u see is unexplanable...Coz u tend to forget this!!!!That Suckz!

While one spends da last days of his life....The scene dat flashes infront of his eyes are the sneek peak shown by den...EUREKA!

there is no pyysical addiction to dendrite,its only in ones head...one needs to go to a doctor or have the will power to simply stop doing it...i aagree that its one of the deadliest forms of drugs available

Engage him to his most versatile and unique strengths and creativity and sort him out a new way to life which would not concern at all or have any relation to addictions.There was a time I felt cigarettes were not leaving me or I am not leaving them and as u know nicotine addiction is one of the worst of the lot.. Any type of addiction is disgusting.. But if you can find a firm reason in mind to quit that for your own good and future probably that would be the best remedy.. everything is a habit.. Yes I have smoked few of my last cigarettes which was the first one i had bought 2yrs ago and kept it at home.It was all the time at home and i never knew/forgot all about them by firm determination or mind diverting..!! today I understand that its not hard to give up addiction.. Its hard to stay not addicted anymore completely after giving up.. mind it i said IT IS HARD,NOT IMPOSSIBLE.. you may also draw his interest in ancient texts or the study of good characters and habits about life and their sweet fruits.. some how make him hold back from even thinking about those things.Calmly suggest him if he can hold back for 1 month and more there would be a surprise awaiting.. and believe me.. He will return to you smiling one day.. :) Good luck and best wishes for your friend.."THE BEST WAY TO QUIT ADDICTIONS IS TO MAKE THE QUITTING YOUR ADDICTION AND STRENGTH OF MIND." Om Shanti -arpan sinha

Eat or juice beets everyday. Beets wipe the dendrites, and remove craving. Eat whole fruit and vegetable diet. And above all, call upon Jesus Christ for salvation from sin. No human can make it to heaven by good works or following a religion. All hae sinned and fallen short of perfection. So God became a man, Jesus Christ. He lived a perfect sin free life. He died on the cross, as the sacrifice for our sins, the death we all deserve to die for our crimes against God. He was buried, and on the third day He rose!

Whoever believes in Jesus Christ and confesses that He is Lord, will be saved, set free from sin, from the devil, and from the world, and filled with the Almighty Holy Spirit.

I was addicted to cocaine, alcohol, marijuana, pills, etc. AND JESUS SET ME FREE. He can set you free and give you eternal life.

Whoever believes in Jesus and is baptized wll be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.

All are slaves of sin. Some are slaves to drugs. Some to sex. Some to pride and self worship. Some to knowledge. Some to riches. Sin is the product of living lives apart from God.

God loves you all! I love you all!

Accept Jesus, become part of our family! Come to heaven! Please! Jesus is coming soon! He loves you!

You don't have to save yourself with religion or good works. Just believe in Jesus!

Getting set free from addiction is just the first of many gifts Jesus wants to offer.

I was a slave of drugs, alcohol, sex, pornography, video games, etc. and now I am completely free. Jesus is salvation. His Name in Hebrew is Yeshua. Yeshua means salvation. I tried to kill myself countless times.

I drew a rifle on three police officers, trying to commit suicide, and Jesus spared my life and protected me from going to hell. Now I live my life preaching the Gospel. I have seen lives resurrected by Jesus!

Call on His Name! He will will help you! I promise.

Bless you!

I inhaled it for three years continuously, two to three red tubes everyday. If you want to quit, you can, without anyone's help. Period.
Its a drug thats makes you, you. But unfortunately not fully and going out of the natural rule via a shortcut must have to has a cost. I smoked marijuana and inhaled den very frequently and in large quantity. The problembisbthat the side effects that came with it did not go.... I quit inhaling this and marijuana 2years back... I only cosume den like 2-3 times a year and marijuana 2-3 times a week.......i don't believe marijuana is such a big problem.... rather than problems with attentiveness. But den is something worse tan it...... it frees you so much that you dont even take the responsibility to remember the little incidents and thoughts that you pass by....but after consumption whrn the effect goes away your brain clogs and gets bundled..... the duality comes again and thats what everyone wants to get rid of.... I believe thats when the craving begins.....to get to the peaceful and nondual self (i not saying that its your wholetrue self ...........but it is non dual indeed) what yogis achive through a natural and hard working process you get a bit of that with consumption of this drug..... when I wanted to quit dandy I just pulled myself tighty.... I mean my head was clogged......mmy breathing was not normal...... I fantasised about inhaling it (you get what I mean) but being a lond time user I now feel that my thought pattern has been altered and I cant think like before.... long story short. ........ yes you can quit it just by making a pledge to youryourself. .. you will suffer from withdrawal syndrome but its managable...... dont do it it harms you..... trust me after leaving it yoursentimental and emotional side totally collapses and that is what iss dangerous to suffee.... if you can fight this situation then you can not only quit but understand why it is so addictive. if you are greedy to sneak peak the perspective that this body in its 'normal' sitate is incapable and incompetent to experience you will suffer. Drugs connect you to somewhere that you want to be but takes you far waway from it I a matter of second and makes you to be dependant on it. please dont do drugs. Pledge that you will never do drugs. :)

I desperately need to find a way to make a friend of mine understand what he's doing to his body by doing it for more than 5 years now, I think. He's one of the most insightful, free and rational people I've ever seen, and in general he's a good human being. But I am scared for him. I have been so for years now. I need serious answers for this. I know he's addicted. What can I do for him?
