So darling Shashi Naidoo decided to comment back on her recent hit You Tube video and this is what she had to say…
Well, here is my response to you, dear Shashi…
“What a performance… You right, you should leave the jokes to the professional comedians. I mean a weight joke? Is that all you have? If weight and people’s appearances are such an issue, then I feel sorry for you. No wonder you couldn’t handle married life… We all saw your ex and he was no Brad Pitt. But I don’t want to judge…
Anyway’s, seeing as you are dishing out “thoughts”, I thought I would do the same. Here is a list of Drug & Alcohol Rehabilitation Centres in Johannesburg. I really hope you do make use of one of the numbers on this list. It saddens me when your so called ‘industry friends’ are gossiping behind your back, making fun of your problem. Sort yourself out, before trying to sort me out… ”

When referring to drug abuse it is important to have a clear idea of precisely what may be covered by those two simple words. Since the verb to abuse, in its simplest form, means little more than to make inappropriate use of something, it becomes clear that it is not only illegal substances that may be subject to abuse but prescription drugs also.
The lifestyles of the rich and famous such as actors and rock stars are often very demanding requiring long and stressful hours and it is common practice for such people to seek the support of assorted prescription drugs.
So-called ‘uppers’ help them to cope during periods of high pressure while, in the rare moments of relaxation it takes ‘downers’ to restore their metabolism to normal. All too often the effects prove seductive and drug use becomes drug abuse that has often led to overdose and death.
In its more common interpretation, the term drug abuse is normally used to refer to any use of a banned or restricted substance and, depending upon the country concerned, this could cover anything from smoking cannabis to mainlining on heroin. Under the laws of some countries, mere possession of a banned substance could result in arrest and prosecution while others may require offenders to be caught in the act.
Despite the rigid definition that is commonly applied to drug abuse, there are still plenty of users whose behaviour does not strictly comply with the popular image of substance abusers.
While their actions may remain blatantly in conflict with the law, these individuals make only occasional use of banned substances and for purely recreational purposes. They invariably display no evidence of addiction or visible signs of ill health.
It is important to stress that such people are the exception and can pose a danger to those who may seek to emulate them. Sadly most who take this route will see it end in drug abuse
