I doubt any drug addict want to be addicted to a drug and watch their world crash around them while they slowly care less and less. This is only an example of the destructive power of a substance on the mind and it's ability to alter determination. Most try an addictive substance out of curiosity or pressure saying, "Im just going to try this one time". However and this is from experience of having almost been a victim to it, the drug tricks you by offering you this great euphoria and some of the best times you never thought you could have only to strip them from you and hinder the positive determination that once surged within. It takes a strong person and a lot of positive thought to get out of the hole of addiction but it takes a stronger person to avoid it all together knowing full well it is not healthy for you. Logic and reason should prevent all from falling victim to this but not all of us use either. I am grateful that I learned from my experiences and tell others now what can come from them.

Ouch, it's bad news, meth and herion are bad as hell. Lost some friends to it. As a parent it's tough, but not really much you can do about it. The only way anyone really ever gets clean is when they decide it for themself. Seen many let people talk them into rehab, as soon as they are out the door, back to the drugs

I've been struggling with a plan for when he decides to waltz back in.
1. Pay rent
2. Own food And cooking
Or give me the keys back. But these things seem trivial compared to the monkey on his back and I'm not sure what it will accomplish.
