Re: Deaths from tramadol and legal highs reach new highs in England and Wales

Pain is the penalty for living: a toothache is the penalty for eating; a backache is the penalty for moving; and a heartache is the penalty for loving. Since life is so painful, we need the feeling and pealing of healing.

Competing interests: I have a self-published e-book called "Peace Poetry & The LOVE Diet", which simplifies health and demystifies addiction.
