My UK edition of Caraval showed up finally! I’ve already it but I couldn’t help but get a physical edition! It’s so beautiful!! Anyone read this or currently reading it??

War On Drugs?

See, if the War On Drugs was actually about reducing drug crime, the capitalist state could win it in a matter of months. Decriminalise most drugs, legalise and tax the least dangerous drugs, plough the massive policing budgetary savings and tax revenues into treating drug addiction as a disease, and you’d completely undercut the demand which fuels black-market capitalist drug enterprises virtually overnight - and you’d still have a huge slice left over for all the fancy medals to award to ‘reforming’ police chiefs you could wish for.

The capitalist establishment know this; it’s bleedingly obvious. The War On Drugs is not even remotely about drugs - it’s about the social control necessary to enforce the managed decline of working-class communities via institutionally racist harassment.

Maybe sobriety isn't for me.

Maybe the mixture of pills is the only thing getting me through the day.
Maybe feeling like i have been hit in the head the next day is part of my life now.
Maybe i am totally alone and these pills are the only thing that will ever love me back.
Maybe popping a pill or ten every few hours and smoking a spliff in between is what my life has become.
And maybe i don’t mind

I was so excited when I took off the dust jacket & saw that I got the circus tent edition! If you don’t know there are 4 different versions & 1 special Tesco edition for the UK copies. I swear I’m going to stop posting photos of this book… Maybe 😂

LUSH - How to request samples online!

When making an order, on the check out page before going on to making the payment there is an option to add a delivery request, this is where you can ask for samples!
In the picture I have asked for specific products, but instead you could ask for something to help dry skin, or something relaxing for example and Lush will pick out products they think will be most suitable.
I usually ask for 3 if I want to try specific things. You can have samples of anything apart from bath bombs, oils, melts and bubble bars, and of course no kitchen items. And remember to be polite!!

It shapes the childhood of every child whose parent has an addiction. You grow up too quickly because you’re parenting your parents. My mother’s an amazingly strong person with a huge heart, and I adore her. But it’s not something you get better from, I don’t think. I know there are people who have stopped and are fine now, but not in my circumstance. She’s still struggling.
