Before drug addiction was classified as a disease, there were not nearly as many addicts. The disease factor is used as an excuse. Drugs are destroying this country.

Predisposition to not being able to handle stress or not being taught effective coping skills is probably more likely to cause someone to have a greater likelihood of becoming addicted.....as a coping mechanism.

Yes they did it to themselves.....

But a person's choices also have a lot to do with whether or not they acquire aids or other sexually transmitted diseases. Certain voluntary factors contribute to heart disease diabetes and etc.....they are considered diseases.

Children learn best about proper diet and exercise from their parents and by example. So parents somewhat contribute to their children's future ailments in a way.....same is true of addiction. Some babies are born with dependency issues. Not at all their fault but it very well could contribute to a person's likelihood of becoming addicted later in life.
