Abuse of painkillers reaches 'epidemic' levels in US

The report, published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), said fatalities caused by narcotic pain relievers have more than tripled in the last 10 years - equivalent to 40 deaths a day.

Last year, a national survey on drug use and health showed that one in 20 Americans over the age of 12 said they had used painkillers for non-medical reasons.

An addendum to the attacker of telephone poles, only the police and the person who did it knows what was driven, but one witness thought it was a small pickup with a camper and another an SUV. I know it wasn't a Dodge Neon which I own, the pole would have had barely a scratch on it and the car would be wrapped like a wad of aluminum foil.

Mike N.Y., it appears it was your typical car, my brother talked to fellows who replaced the telephone pole at length since it was near his house, and the repair fellows said the police followed the trail of antifreeze to the basher of poles to his house. Apparently that wasn't even necessary, his wallet was found at the scene of the desecration of the t. pole. Apparently no telephone pole is safe in Lincoln.

I doubt if even that could take out a phone pole. A break-away light post maybe, but not a phone pole.
Ah John, I was thinking of the Chieftain Tank.

Someone took a telephone pole out this morning near my house, but was finally able to drive away under his own power. I might wonder if he wasn't on booze or some other intoxicant. Just because some intoxicator isn't in the Bible doesn't mean that it's use isn't sinful.

people are in pain because their bodies are sick, and doctors only can give them synthetics, knowing nothing else.

if doctors think their drugs are unhealthy and the public needs to be protected against them, perhaps they should learn more natural, viable, techniques for treating pain.

Allopathy is but one way of "treating" the sick.

Or maybe the driver was distracted by a phone, GPS, or a luxury-car gadget. As pilots say, "Fly the plane ✈, not the radio." Because so many seem obsessed with such things, I consider them no less addictive & hazardous, yet most absentionist Christians have no qualms about using them - I've seen Anabaptists in PA using cell phones ✆ (but at least they drive only horses). But many Amish still repudiate Plain Old Telephones, preferring to make social calls in person.

These days, I worry more about cellphone drivers than drunk drivers.

I see there is a sermon about addiction that SermonAudio has listed, and I would add a free, downloadable booklet, Freedom From Addiction, Breaking the Cycle of Sin.
