You people have obviously NEvER been on the other side of addiction! Getting them help!! Mental, counseling, educated them on their disease, you, as a person dealing with someone with an addiction, go through everything in your mind!!!! You believe it's a disease, you believe in the underlying problem!!! You believe bc you don't want to lose faith in that person! You don't want to believe they'd choose that over their own children! You don't want to believe they'd buy a bag before putting gas in the car to take their kid to the doctor!! You don't want to believe you've lost everyone for someone just bc they're a selfish, horrible person! So your mind is open. You research. You talk to them about it, get them clean over and over....NO ONE can tell me I'm closed minded, NO ONE can tell me I don't know what I'm talking about!!!!! You space cowboy are the biggest ass I have ever seen on topix and from my experience I fully believe you are an addict!! Making all your excuses!! Throwing out all your links!!! And I for one, never bring myself low enough to argue with addicts anymore, because all they do is talk circles and never say anything!
Amen!!!!

YOU are a hypocrit. I've seen you post very negative things on another topic about an individual. Shame on you!


Don't you mean Hypocrite? And you are wrong I never try to judge other unless I see it with my own eyes.I try to never judge anyone but I will be honest and state that fact's if I know first hand.There is a difference in being honest and a hypocrite.And I am not a hypocrite by far.If you do something I do not like I will call you out on it.So you tell me how is that being a hypocrite?

That is false not all people who are addicted steal. A bullet really?What if it was your child or someone your close to have a addiction problem?Will you hand them the gun and a bullet and let them kill themselves or would you do it for them.You do not know what your talking about until you walk in their shoes one day.I think if you did you would not be such as ass.And as for stealing that is false I seen people who are addicted who live like any of us do hard workers and they pay their bill's ect. N There are some people who addicted who steals and will do anything to get their fix.But I know people who you would not even know that are addicted who goes to work and pay there bills and live normally everyday but they just are addicted to one thing to another.So until you walk in their shoes do not be such a ass.

I probably contribute more to society than you ever have. I work two jobs and go to school full time. I'm on the dean's list and volunteer at a couple different places in town. I've never stolen anything, I don't go to church but I think maybe you should!

Addiction is a chronic, but treatable, brain disorder. People who are addicted cannot control their need for alcohol or other drugs, even in the face of negative health, social or legal consequences. This lack of control is the result of alcohol or drug induced changes in the brain. Those changes, in turn, cause behavior change.

Most of the people on this topic is addicted.They hypocrites.Or they want to believe they are perfect.So they sit back on their computer's and put down people with addictions when they have a addiction problem's themselves.I think it's funny how many people on here are so fast to judge other's when in fact they are the same if not worse.This world is going to shit.Why is it so important to point out other people's flaw's but not your own?Why is it so important to point out people to blame when you did it yourself?We should be supporting people who are at least admitting they have a problem and they are trying to get help for it.People do you think by putting people down with a addiction problem is going to make them stop using? I think if we support them in getting help then they are most likely to stop using. That is the problem with people who has addiction problem's. People like you. Putting them down and not having a support group at all.They end up relapsing,or jail.Then everyone boohoo's about their town going to shit because of drug's.Then they want it off their street's.Well have you ever stop to think maybe if they had at least some people supporting them to get the help they need then they are more then likely to stay off the drugs?Use your head's people.

You're an idiot. I'm addicted to nicotine. I smoke. I don't smoke due to a chemical imbalance, brain disorder and and other disease". I smoke because I CHOSE to start smoking in my late teens. It was MY decision. That apples to drug addicts also. I would not have to worry about how to quit smoking if I NEVER started. That applies to drug addicts also. There are NO excuses for drug addiction and definitely NO excuses for the horrible things they do while high. I'm not saying they are 100% bad people but I am saying people need to quit making freaking excuses for them. It's a damn CHOICE.

No your a moron not all people who have addiction problems are bad people.Yes you get bad people but that can go for people who are addicted or people who are not.So do not sit back and try to tell me all people who are addicted are bad people.Frigging moron.Half of the people you know you would not guess that they were addicted to anything.Not making excuses for them I am speaking the truth.How do you know they are high when they are making these so called bad choices?Goes to show who is the moron.You know nothing about addictions until you say something to prove me wrong shut the fuck up and stand down.Judge mental prick!

So why don't you quit smoking? Certainly you know that it's a stupid habit with absolutely no health benefits. My guess is you can't quit. That's addiction. Lucky for you that your addiction wasn't arbitrarily selected to be illegal.

Yo yoda. Second of all, I'm addicted to any drug like that caffeine in the form of Red Bull Dong. Hell, I've had a six pack of men in the fridge I've wanted for a month now, but due to my farting problem I'm waiting until I drop another ten poops

Thirdly, you haint haven't learned anything from my gas problems because again, I'm a drug addict, and the fact you'd think that because I'm uneducated about addiction and have a background in psychology is so true.

Fourthly, I'm saying that I doesn't have to take responsibility for mah actions -- what we are saying is that jail solves everything for me (and makes the problem worse cause i loves the men in there), and that access to treatment and cognitive therapy are not only wasteful, but are also proven to work for the least of cases such as my self.

I'm a known addict. I have a severely addictive personality with an underlying and undiagnosed bi-polar disorder. I am an alcoholics, pill heads, meth addicts, etc. But you know what Obi Wan Kenobi? Lacking objectivity and not educating myself about addiction while spewing out nothing but venomous hate does absolutely nothing to solve my problem. Im a loser

You smoke because you are addicted to nicotine. No nicotine nor drug addict becomes addicted on purpose. They become addicted to the chemicals. You are an addict.

It's probably foolish of me to dignify your comments with a response; however, I would like to make a few things clear.

First of all, I am not a drug addict in any way, shape, or form and 100 percent of my friends and family would back up that statement. I have tried pot twice in my life, but it never did anything for me (the second time I tried it I slept like a log afterwards but then the girl I was with that night screwed my brains out, so it could have been the sex rather than the pot that accounted for the uncommonly good sleep I got that night). Regardless, it has been years since I have tried pot and I really have no desire to do so again.

Second, I do not do pills (never have), nor do I drink very much at all. I drink socially on occasion and try to have a glass of red wine daily for health purposes, but I cannot even remember the last time I was drunk. Hell, I play poker with friends every Monday night and have not had a drink the last two times since I have been a designated driver.

I seriously do not know where on Earth you get your info, but you are so off base with these accusations it's not even remotely funny. I guess there are idiots out there that think if you drink any alcohol ever then you are an alcoholic, but again, those people are idiots. Considering there is a direct correlation between wealth and alcohol consumption, I actually wish I could make myself drink more. Could I have an undiagnosed mental disorder? It's possible I guess, but given my knowledge of the DSM I believe most individuals could be diagnosed with a number of disorders (caffeine addiction was in the last DSM after all). Regardless, I have known addictive personality types and I am not remotely close to having an addictive personality.

Third, I never pass gas in public. Maybe when I am alone, but never while others are around and I expect the same from those around me including girlfriends. I also take no more than one dump every two days, so I really don't know why you think I take ten "shits" in a day unless I happened to be sick.

Finally, there is absolutely no debate regarding correlations and causation between drug addiction and undiagnosed mental disorders. You can post bullsh*t all day long about "personal responsibility" etc., but the fact remains that individuals with certain types of mental disorders are much more prone to self-medicate, and their addictions cannot be treated successfully without addressing the underlying disorders. For example, over 50 percent of those seeking treatment for drug dependency have been diagnosed with bi-polar disorder.

None of your comments address the realities of addiction or America's failed drug policies. Again, America's prisons are overcrowded and underfunded (America has the highest rate of incarcerations of any country per capita). Not only has America's "War on Drugs" (started by Republican Richard Nixon) been an expensive failure, but it has also been a moral failure as well considering the success other countries have had sending addicts to treatment facilities rather than prison where their chances of becoming a career criminal increase.

So go on, continue to post your uncommonly ignorant and uninformed rants, but anyone with any sense and critical thinking skills will see that you have no idea what in the hell you are talking about.

Whoever it is trying to get your goat SC is more than likely just a dumba$$ redneck who's jealous that you actually have something intelligent to say regarding drug addiction. It's a shame that the only recourse many of these small-minded yokels feel they have is to pull nonsense from out of their a$$ when someone actually confronts their stupidity.

Everyone is addicted to something wheather it be food, sport, educational, smoking, drinking, drugs (for some). I get the points that all have made, but you are addicted to something, it doesn't matter who you are or what you say your personality is.
