Great, epochal positive changes are underway at every level of our reality, including plummeting drug and alcohol consumption across the globe.

‘What object is served by this circle of misery and violence and fear? It must tend to some end, or else our universe is ruled by chance, which is unthinkable.”

You can see from the two sets of quotes up above that the folks in charge are not your friends and are lying to you about basically everything, including increasing suicide rates.

You can also see that great, epochal positive changes are underway at every level of our reality, including plummeting drug and alcohol consumption across the globe.

We’re lifting up, pulling away, leaving them behind, forever.

The words “mystery”, “baffled” and “puzzled” are memes, used, among numerous similar variants, whenever anyone in the wholly-controlled-and-coopted Political, Academic, Scientific and Media establishments wants to lie about, well, basically anything.

That’s why one of the stories I’ve featured below is headlined “Teen suicides increase; searching for answers to halt this disturbing trend”.

And another “More teens are attempting suicide. It’s not clear why”.

The reason that rugby scrums of hand-wringing suburbanites fresh back from a “Mothers Against Drunk Driving” rally are not re-forming in every city and town to protest this global trend is that they are, themselves addicted to the same “Smart” phones that are driving the dramatic increase, and in fact bought their own teenagers one of those very phones “to be good parents” – so they could talk or text with their child at any moment “if there was an emergency.”

And, even though driving safety’s their hot-button, don’t try telling them that the accident rate of people using a cell phone while driving is above that of those who are legally drunk. And I’m afraid I’m going to have to block the subconscious’ next move by adding “even if that phone is hand’s-free.”

But I digress – as “it makes you want to kill yourself” is the main point I’m trying to underscore here about the Greatest Invention in the History of the World.

But the name of this thread is “Postive Changes That Are Occurring”, and the collection of articles below includes some jaw-dropping statistics that show you the world that we are entering, have already entered:

“Overall, teens’ use of illegal drugs (other than marijuana and inhalants) continues to decrease. It’s now the lowest in the history of the survey in all three grades.”

“U.S. Alcohol Consumption Drops for a Second Year”

It goes on like that.

And the positive changes are increasing in speed and magnitude:

(From “U.S Alcohol Consumption Drops for a Second Year”) “it represents a quickening decline and the equivalent of 17.6m gallons, or 7.4m nine-liter cases – more than double the volume lost in 2016.”

If you haven’t already done so, please consider distributing simple, inexpensive Orgonite devices where you live and work  today, or sponsor a gifter, perhaps even through a vehicle such as this forum.

Teen suicide attempts increased 23 percent. Even more troubling, the number of 13-to-18-year-olds who committed suicide jumped 31 percent

 

January 8, 2018 – Teens’ Drug Use Is Lower Than Ever (Mostly)

Teens’ use of most illegal drugs is down—way down—except for marijuana, which is staying about the same. However, teens are vaping more often than before, and their use of inhalants has increased slightly.

Those are some of the findings from the latest Monitoring the Future survey. More than 43,700 students in 8th, 10th, and 12th grades (from 360 schools across the United States) took the survey in 2017. Here are some of the things we learned from them.

The good news

Overall, teens’ use of illegal drugs (other than marijuana and inhalants) continues to decrease. It’s now the lowest in the history of the survey in all three grades. That’s excellent!

Opioids

Teens are misusing opioid pain medications less than they did 10 years ago.

Misuse of all pain medications (including over-the-counter medicines) has also dropped since 2004. For instance, 12th graders’ misuse of pain medications fell by more than half, from nearly 10 percent in 2004 to just over 4 percent.

 

January 11, 2018 – Sharp drop in Australian teenagers’ use of drugs, alcohol and tobacco

Study’s authors … Tobacco use among Australia’s teenagers dropped from 45% to 10% between 1999 and 2015.

(That’s the soft, back-door way of saying “dropped 35% between 1999 and 2015.” – ed)

 

January 11, 2018 –  U.S. Alcohol Consumption Drops for a Second Year

Alcohol consumption in the US dropped for a second consecutive year in 2017, according to figures released by the IWSR, with overall volumes dragged down by declining beer sales, despite wine and spirits achieving gains.

Preliminary data provided by the IWSR as part of its US Beverage Alcohol Review databased shows that in 2017 the volume of total alcohol consumption declined for the second consecutive year by -0.2%. While this is slight, it represents a quickening decline and the equivalent of 17.6m gallons, or 7.4m nine-liter cases – more than double the volume lost in 2016.

April 23, 2018 – Time, please: is drinking becoming as socially unacceptable as smoking?

Drinking is ingrained in our social life – much as cigarettes were until public health campaigns led to a huge cultural shift. With many young people eschewing alcohol, the beginning of the end of booze Britain is in sight.

Another young person I speak to says his family are heavy drinkers and he wanted to avoid falling into that pattern. In a broader sense, says Dr James Nicholls, director of research and policy development at Alcohol Research UK, this is quite common among young people; they are rebelling against older generations’ chosen methods of rebellion. According to a 2017 ONS study, more than a quarter of 16- to 24-year-olds are teetotal, a four-fold increase on the rest of the population, with just one in 10 seeing drinking as “cool”. Nicholls says that drinking among young people has been declining for a decade.

Statistics Lithuania informs that in 2017, based on provisional data, absolute (100 per cent) alcohol consumption per resident aged 15 and older amounted to 12.3 litres (by 0.9 litres less than in 2016).

In 2017, country’s retail trade and catering enterprises sold 3.1 million dekalitres of spirits (vodka, whisky, brandy and the like), which is by 358 thousand dekalitres (10.5 per cent) less than in 2016, and 4.2 million dekalitres of wine and fermented beverages, which is by 947 thousand dekalitres (18.4 per cent) less than in 2016.

June 7, 2018 – Teenage suicides in London rise by 107% – more than four times national rate, new figures reveal

Huge increase described as ‘a needless waste of young lives’

New figures show self-inflicted deaths among Londoners aged between 10 and 19 have more than doubled since 2013, rising by 107 per cent in the three years to 2016 – from 14 to 29 – while across England and Wales the equivalent number increased by 24 per cent.

Experts attribute the sharp rise to the “over-pressured” environment facing teenagers in the city and a feeling among those in the capital’s deprived neighbourhoods that there is “no hope” for their education and job prospects.
