    Addiction is a progressive disease; over? time addicts lose the power of choice.

  • JOOP60606 says:

    * Yeah other people suffer to and they dont all go off take heroin *

    Yep & sum ppl DO. Just cos u and other ppl didnt make the mistake I made, dont make u any better than me or other? addicts.

    Have seen stuck up ppl like u hating “junkie’s” until their son got caught up in it, and all of a sudden they get understanding.

    Typical attitude – I didnt, so other ppl didnt have to either, well other people deal with things diffrently and other people make diffrent mistakes in life than you made.

  • JOOP60606 says:

    Yeah they do youre right, and is that your argument, that so they deserve it, or its their own fault. If you could feel the torture I felt all my life, and then imagine taking something that didnt just take the pain away but made you feel good,? I think youd do it too.

    Just because you wouldnt do something, doesn’t make someone else wrong if they did. Many addicts have some pretty horrific stories to tell. I doubt you’d understand or want to understand the pain I suffrered, but I did.

  • JOOP60606 says:

    Thanks for the caps, I was going to ignore your? comment, but I saw the caps, and I? thought, this is going to be important, better read it.

  • Frank Blackcrow says:

    1 thing that people need to understand is that your addiction is making someone rich and they dont care about you 1 bit, and if you dont care about yourself no 1 else will, not your families, not authority’s, everytime a heroin addict OD’s its 1 less to make that person that sells it rich.
    If you smoke cigerettes? do the math see how much you spend a week, then do that with a herion addict and see how much they spend a week, stop making other ppl rich with your addiction.

  • violinmusicfan says:

    I accept that it is a logical fallacy to? argue that since many believe, it must be true. However, I do believe that if many believe, that view should be respected.

  • xfireball929x says:

    Ya its your own free will but you dont really understand why your taking? it until youve been there, its about more then just being high.

  • Necrojax says:

  • humbertojimmy says:

    “weel chair”!? Sorry for the typo.

  • humbertojimmy says:

    Looking down on addicts???? LOL. It just shows how stupid some people are. Try living without food! You can’t, can you? No, because you depend on it. There you go. We are ALL addicts at some? level. We all depend on something. If you end up on a wellchair, you will depend on veryone else around you for the rest of your life!! You can’t plan addiction. So, at least show some respect.
