Oh Dear, Oh Dear, Once a Junkie Always a Junkie, Mr. Dagstine?

I like to read the articles at I came across this bit about Obama. It seems that he made some of the mistakes that I did and mentions them now so that young people will know that such mistakes as drug use can be recovered from.

I have said the same thing myself. So has Stephen King in his book “On Writing.”

I’m in seriously great company as a recovered drug user.

Dear Mr. Dagstine, You are a NitWit.

    Funny, isn’t it: Bush admits having drinking/drug problems, so he’s a loser. Obama admits it, but that’s OK.

    Either it’s OK to admit to a problem & overcome it, or it’s not. It isn’t OK for one guy but not another, no matter what you think of them personally. There’s no third way. If it is OK for one, it’s OK for all, and vice versa.

    Dingleberry, OTOH, is always wrong. On his blog, where he wants to ‘help’ writers, he comes off as such an arrogant douchebag you want to break his fingers. And that’s the parts where his advice is good.

    I agree completely, Khazar.

    There are so many people who have had problems with drugs / alcohol and then overcame them.

    If Dagstine is so obsessed with punishing recovered users by not reading their material etc. then he might have to remove most of the books from his shelves and the music from his cd collection.

    When Dan was 15 he was more or less kicked out of his house. He still sort of went there to sleep, but for the most part he was raised by a wonderful Jewish family. Their kids were his best friends until we got engaged.

    And that’s when his friend found drugs. For the next 15 years he went through all sorts of srugs, put everyone through hell, lost the woman who adored him, couldn’t hold a job–you name it.

    Finally he went to live with his other good friend, a guy who in HS was the Local Loser. He’s still kind of a loser, but he’s married & his wife keeps him going.

    Anyway, David showed up with a prostitute from Corona. They were there a couple of months before the hooker was kicked out. David finally went to the synagogue & got into a rehab program. He’s remarried now & has a fun job woth some SCA guys.

    Watching David destroy himself almost killed Dan. He loved this guy more than his own brothers (admittedly that isn’t hard to do). Knowing he’s finally clean is good. He’s been that way for almost 10 years.

    We’ve known several others who fought their way back. They don’t all make it. It really breaks your heart.

    Sounds like David is one of the lucky ones.

    Punishing those who have fought their way back out of that nightmare serves only to discourage others from trying.

    But the reality for Daggy is that he is simply and deliberately being cruel when he makes these statements.

    Cruelty is Dagstine’s only talent.

    But the reality for Daggy is that he is simply and deliberately being cruel when he makes these statements.

    Exactly, and that’s what makes him an even bigger douchebag than his arrogance and smarminess.

    Outside of Nikki’s anus, what are Dingleberry’s favorite perversions?

    It’s one thing to be honest about your drug use, but in reality, Bush never admitted to drug use.

    Dagstine I’m sure has never ever taken any drugs of any kind, I’m sure. Oh wait, he did say he smoked. Nicotine is more addictive than any street drug I know of. He says here that he quit in July of ’07. Of course this is after other talked about how they quit smoking.

    Dagstine is simply incapable of one original thought.

    I still smoke. Addiction is addiction regardless of whether it is cigs, liquor, or drugs. Just because some addictions are legal and others are not changes nothing.

    So, people who are recovering alcoholics or recovering drug addicts are scumbags now?

    Who the hell is this Dagstine dipshit?

    I’m going to answer that question in a post, 50ft

    I was on the brink of falling into on-line addiction, but I recognized what was going on and got help for it. Then I made the decision to become a writer. Best choice I’ve made. Ever.

    Dagstine has continued to harp on my long ago drug addiction problem, alledging that I admitted to using crack cocaine. but I never used it and was very specific about my drug use in past times.

    I’ve lost count of the times that he has referred to me as a crack whore.
