Some of our amazing peer educators who ran the bake sale at their school today in order to fundraise for us!! #streetaware #youthambassadors #fundraising #bakesale #drugs #alcohol #harmprevention

Interesting how, even though beer goggles can be fun to mess around with when around mates, they actually demonstrate well just how disoriented alcohol can make a person... imagine if this were real and they were walking along a busy road... #alcohol #harmprevention #beergoggles

Great night tonight with the Bulldogs ESU teaching them about drugs, alcohol, chemsex & harm prevention!! #drugs #alcohol #chemsex #harmprevention #streetaware #drugawareness #scouts

Thrilled to announce the @governmentofbc through the Ministry of Mental Health & Addictions and Minister @judydarcynw has come forward with a $200,000 grant for our organization. The funds will help us hire 4 new therapists and double the amount of young people we can help. Thank you Minister Darcy for your outstanding support. Also thanks to our board and Youth spokesperson Kaylie for sharing her story. Photo credit: Government of BC. #mentalhealth #addiction #youth #harmprevention #britishcolumbia #insight #empowerment

Trying to take an acceptable photo for my new work photo ID 😆🙈📷 ➖➖ although I’ve been volunteering with St Mungo’s for the past 18 months and have @theredboxproject_hackneynorth keeping me busy too, it’s been over six years since I’ve done any paid work ➖➖ the prospect of getting back out there is both exciting and a little scary, today’s my first day as a locum worker at a St Mungo’s hostel, wish me luck! 🤞🏼 .

Heya, so sorry for not posting but I’m really struggling and I don’t want to trigger any of you lovely souls, so mostly just positives until I’m back on my feet ✨ 🌸I actually got some sleep 🙏🏻
🌸I managed to actually read a decent amount of the Order Of The Phoenix ⚡️
🌸I drew/painted some pretty flowers 🌼
🌸I rang the BEAT helpline, not very helpful but I’m proud of myself anyway ☺️
🌸I got nice messages from some of you 💕
🌸I drew on myself instead of harming ☯️
🌸went on a dog walk 🌳

I’m not giving up all together, I just don’t know how to pull myself out of this rut... 😔 but here’s the thing- restriction doesn’t bring the peace it promises, it drags you deeper until you have to climb twice as far to reach the light- don’t give up, don’t let the thoughts con you, because the only way to real happiness is recovery 💗

After six months of waiting #fightingforspace finally arrived in Brussels. Can't wait to start reading it and sharing thoughts with @tlupick
. After all, it's not often that one has the luxury of knowing the author, right?! Very proud.

🍺🍹🍸🍷 It's frustrating how our society has normalized alcohol consumption. It's hard to find a show to watch these days, that DOESN'T glorify drinking. And, many of the people against cannabis, are throwing back a six pack or a pint a night, but yet making judgements on folks like me.
.
.
🌿🔥💨 And if folks like me, light up a joint in public, I'm doing something AWFUL and illegal. It just floors me, how much alcohol has became a normal, an acceptable way of life for many. Yes I enjoy drinks every so often too, but it really surprises me how many people drink on a daily basis.
.
.
This shift in society happened while I was away in my pharma fog for 10 years, so I'm just now really seeing it unfold before me. Plus, things are just much more clearer, now that I consume cannabis and see the real truths and how cannabis was demonized. We've come a long way, but there's still work to do. Education & harm prevention, with kids and young adults, is super important for all of our futures.
.
.
"An estimated 88,0008 people (approximately 62,000 men and 26,000 women8) die from alcohol-related causes annually, making alcohol the third leading preventable cause of death in the United States. The first is tobacco, and the second is poor diet and physical inactivity.9 In 2014, alcohol-impaired driving fatalities accounted for 9,967 deaths (31 percent of overall driving fatalities).10" .
.
"In 2010, alcohol misuse cost the United States $249.0 billion.11
Three-quarters of the total cost of alcohol misuse is related to binge drinking.11"
.
.
But yet cannabis alone, has never killed anyone, and is saving lives. Do you need any other reasons, as to why this plant has been, and still remains federally illegal??? .

Get rid of painkillers that you are no longer using safely. NEVER dispose by flushing down the toilet because it can harm the water supply on which we rely. ⠀
There are locations statewide where you can dispose of unused and expired medications throughout the year. Find a location at the link in our bio.⠀
