Addiction begins as a behavior choice usually stemming from curiosity, peer pressure or an unhealthy environment. Crack babies grow up and are not addicted, except if they make the choice to "use". Children of substance abusers are prone to follow examples set before them. It's too easy to blame family, friends, stress, etc. Being the daughter of alcoholics, I have chosen to live a different lifestyle and do not have an addiction to drugs or alcohol. I became a drug counselor because of numerous family members that are alcoholics. I wanted answers. There are many other ways to cope with life's problems besides choosing substance abuse.

Just saying wrote:
It's a person's choice. If they say it's inherited, I'd say BS. My grandfather was an alcoholic, not my father, his sister, my 3 siblings & 4 cousins have a desire to drink alcohol. He was a smoker & only 1 cousin smokes & no drugs (pills, crack, etc) has any roles in our lives.
It's a choice to be weak!!!
If I were u I would probably educate myself before I got on topix spitting out a bunch of misconstrued lies making myself look & sound like an idiot!!! The bullshit u just wrote is your own personal opinion & nothing more. You are entitled to your opinion & I respect that even though u are completely wrong. Please educate yourself because there's no excuse for this type of ignorance, especially in this day & age. There are far too many tools & resources out there available to u for u to be so misinformed. Perhaps u should take some of the time u spend here on topix & google "addiction" & read up on some of the FACTS, proven by many psychiatrists, medical doctors, & psychologists. Unless of course u yourself are smarter & more educated than all these people & u have spent many many years researching & performing studies. Judging by the bullshit u posted U OBVIOUSLY ARE NOT!!!
