Re: Question About Addiction
How Do People Function, Have Lives, Work, And Do Everything Else While On Drugs. And Get The Money For It Too. Because I Know Its Expensive.[/QUOTE]
They don't. It's that simple. I'm a recovering crack addict (4yrs clean as of Sept 5th, 2004) and I know this for a fact. When addicts are using, that is ALL they are thinking about. Not family, not work, not friends, just the next one. You not being an addict will have a real hard time understanding this. It's not your fault if you don't understand. All you can do is pray for her and hope for the best. Some addicts make it into recovery and stay strait, most do not. Addiction is a disease. An addict will always be an addict. We can't use just one of anything. Please just pray for her and maybe suggest that she find her way to a rehab and some NA meetings. They helped me, they just might help her.
If at first you don't succeed, read the damned instructions!
