Oh, my neighbor is at it again. The murdering, drug dealer seems to be back at it, I'm just not sure exactly what. There doesn't seem to be much traffic so I don't think he's dealing, that's good it only took getting raided 2x for them to figure that out - smart. But they are doing something, they are still up all night. It's crazy.

Drugs are so prevalent here in Hawaii it boggles the mind. I'm not sure I understand the attraction I don't like to not feel like myself. Of course, that wasn't always the case. I did my share of drugs when I was much younger and much stupider. Fortunately, I was wise enough, even in my drug addled state, not to mess with anything addicting. And, if I found myself getting too fond of any drug I'd stop taking it. By my mid 20's I was completely over that. Now I don't even like to get drunk because I'm not myself. I like to be myself and be clearheaded and in control. I like to have fun but not to take drugs.

We have a friend who has a really bad back. He's had 3 surgeries on it. He's permanently disabled although he is mobile he really can't work. He has a Prescription Drug Addiction. He takes heavy doses of some very heavy drugs and they are not enough When it gets real bad he has to go to the emergency room and get morphine. I would not want to live like that. I know there are other ways to manage pain and I would try anything to avoid that.

Hope the situation with the neighbour works itself out.

I often worry if Singapore is too Stifling for the kids - it is a very restrictive and controlled environment to grow up in. But, on the other hand, we hardly have issues with drugs here... I guess we have to take the bad with the good.

I thought you guys were moving...or the druggy neighbor was in jail for awhile???
I would just keep calling the police until something was done....we have neighbor problems too, but not the this extent.
How can one live in one of the most beautiful places on earth and be drugged up all the time? I don't get it!

Same in NYC. I have literally seen my coworkers snort coke lines in bathrooms at business dinners. Pretty sad.
