  1. Hi All, I'll try to keep this brief but I'm basically posting this for those in need of help in relation to alcohol/drugs/addiction with the aim of helping those in need. My story in a nutshell: I grew up in your typical punjabi cultured family. My mum has always been spiritual and dad has always been a drinker. My mum had me going to the Gurdwara from a young age and the knowledge has always been instilled within me. Unfortunately, as I grew older my crowd changed. I did well in terms of achieving a degree and a good job but I had also drank heavily during my uni years and star

  6. It literally looks like those apocalyptic movies, but its real! Its sad, I feel for these people ... Is this what the future will look like ? the more we go into Kalyug.
  7. I am a 28 year old Sikh girl. I used to drink alcohol but I quit, I used to eat meat but I quit. I feel bad eating animals now and I know in our religion it’s preferred I don’t eat meat. I have never ever treated someone unequally or have had ego problems. I do my work honestly and help the community. I have a soft heart. I just really regret some decisions I made before which makes me feel like I’ll be put in an endless cycle again. I lost my virginity before marriage and I’ve been regretting it everyday. I don’t know how I can make up for this or what I can do to better practice my religion.
  8. Theres a older Sikh lady who lives down the road from us. She's around 76 years old and came to this country as a very young lady when they used to come in ships. Her life is quite sad. At her age she is still working, main reason being because her son who is around 50 years old is on drugs and drinks a lot too. This lady works at the same place as my mother. When my mother asked her at work why she is still working and that she should be retired and relaxing, the lady started crying and told my mum how her son is heavily dependant on drugs and alcohol, and that if she does not give him
  9. It's the issue that nobody wants to speak about. It's the issue that dares not speak it's name. Some will say don't speak about it because it's castist while others will dismiss it because it interferes with their pre-held misconceptions about how 'poor and vulnerable' the Afghan Sikhs are. Meanwhile, the Sikhs that live in the Afghan Sikh heartlands of Hounslow and Southall in West London have seen the real side. The dark side. The people of Southall have had to watch their town become the Heroin capital of London, where there is just so much heroin that it's even cheaper in many cases than b

  11. interesting lecture, history of tobacco in India
  12. Which one of these ? Pakistan wants to destroy sikhi and is throwing drugs on the indian side of border . This was shown in movie "Udta Punjab". Indian govt is aware of pakistan doing it but couldn't care any lesser because it helps keep sikhs broken and pacified so they don't do another insurgency like the 80s. Indian govt is purposely doing it so as to destroy sikhi youth and thus destroy any rebellious tendencies so as to safeguard its own territorial integrity. Badal ke are involved. Its more of a social issue than a political one . And sellouts among sikhs
  13. Thought id share this video as I just come across it after being at a wedding this weekend. Im guessing many peeps on this site dont drink or do drugs but if you do, this is a good watch

  17. To the 100% of the posters on the 'Shaheedi Degh' thread on the main page I have one very quick and simple question: Can you guys please explain to the rest of us in what way would a substance that is universally acknowleded to negatively distort a man's perception of time, space, poor co-ordination of movement ,substantially reduced reaction time and sensory distortion would be of any benefit to a Sikh warrior wielding several swords at the same time against multiple enemies ? Man, when he enjoys a drug, will go to any lengths in order to justify it. The worst of them will even use religi

  20. I just remembered caffeine is a drug. So is it forbidden or nah? And how do we decide what drugs are okay and which aren't?
  21. As per the India religious census data of 2011, released by the Registrar General and Census Commissioner on Tuesday, the total population of India back in 2011 was 1.21 billion people.

  22. Many of you would have seen these videos before but I saw them for the first time a few days ago and I don't mind telling you that they have played on mind ever since, leaving me feeling unbelievably sad. On many previous occassions when people here have started threads about the drugs situation I have been very critical of the fact that Punjab counts things such as a 'beer' and 'cough syrup' as drugs. I stand by that criticism because what we can clearly see from the videos below is that the masses there do not see any difference between a beer and heroin, a glass of wine and Ice, a cough sy
  23. As an observer of humanity and society I see how western culture is all about hedonist lifestyles where getting drunk or taking drugs is the main highlight of a often depressing week. I see how the drugs epidemic has taken its hold of youth in punjab because they either think its cool getting zoned out or their lives are that depressing and no hope they just want to not face up to reality of their life. Now as a follower of the Sikh religion, I dont have any need for intoxicants. I get high and spiritual uplifting from reading about Sikh history, Sikh scriptures and mediating on Waheguru. W
