Your exactly right.
For example , myself. I got a back injury a few years ago. I was prescribed Oxycontin. Just like millions of others did when oxy was the "miracle" cure. I got addicted, took advantage of my prescription for years. Started buying off the street.
I was lucky though. Not many people can realise how bad it is when your in a place as dark as I was.
So I got the help I needed and have been clean for 3 years, this past June 2nd.
I was a functional junky some how. I never messed up at work and always had a great paying job.
I have seen the other side of the spectrum many times. And its not pretty.
