I know a woman who had a nice home, great kids, and a nice husband who worked hard and brought his paycheck home and took care of his family. For whatever reason this woman (who didn't have to work)got hooked on pills. Got so bad she was stealing things from her family and her own home in order to keep up her habit. Her husband loved her and tried to get her the help she needed to get off drugs but his effort didn't work. Instead of getting clean, she wanted a divorce, gave up her home and children and everything else ....... preferring to keep her drug habit.

i never did agree that addiction is a disease,i was married to an alcholic and tried to help every way possible,with complete failure.he was abusive and thats how he chose to be. a disease is something you have that you cant help.... a abusive drunk or druggie can help themselves if they choose to...they just dont want to,they like it just the way it is and use who ever they can to get what they want.....end of story.
You just contradicted yourself,if you don't lie where you are then leave, that's your responsibility. Plus there is nothing you can do to help. you are the one that choose to stay even if your not happy in a bad situation. So, stop trying to blame your problems on someone else, and leave, do something with your life. At the end of the day, it's your decision, and if it's not good leave. Stop playing the helpless female, and get out. But as most girls in this area you'll stay anyway, and if you did leave good for you, but know get on with your life. It's obvious that you don't understand addiction at all, probably because their is not way to understand something that you haven't been through. After addiction takes control, they are consumed by it, and don't have the ability to make sound judgement. A DR, once explained to be how that when you start using your brain on a maturity level stops growing. That's why most of these people's mental capacity is that of teenagers, because their brain stopped developing at that time. That's why it is so hard for us to understand. Just like all the little girls running around town that are using, they act like teenagers, even though most are around 30 or older..Just educate yourself, then it will be easy for you to keep from being hurt again.

Unfortunately the drug problem is out of control and too many families have lost people they care about to this terrible disease of addiction. Some people use and never hurt others by stealing, lying, etc. but most addicts hurt not only themselves but everyone who cares about them. They don't do it on purpose, they need help. However, giving money or freedom to people who are doing the same thing because they are too weak to accept their punishment, so that arrests can me made is not going to solve the problem. As soon as one drug dealer's shingle comes down, another one goes up. It's too profitable. Until they start putting money into Rehab's and facilities where people can go to get better when they have reached the end of their rope with the disease, then the problem will be here. WE NEED PLACES TO SEND THESE SICK PEOPLE. WE DON'T NEED MORE ADDICTS WITH WEAK MORAL CHARACTERS COLLECTING MONEY, DRUGS, AND/OR FREEDOM TO COMMIT OTHER CRIMES (i.e. RATS). SUPPLY AND DEMAND. SIMPLE ECONOMICS. NO MORE DEMAND, then NO NEW SHINGLES.

Everyone is too worried about someone elses business to mind there own. People need to grow up and take care of themselves and let the rest of the world take care of theres. The one off the street is the one your tax dollars is now housing, feeding and paying the cable bill for, thanks by the way and the one they are watching is just getting a few so they still have someone to go to at the end of the day. But remember for every one they get there is ten to take there place. So if the law was smart they would go to the source not the small times. But guess stopping one makes them sleep easier at night instead of being concerned with our children being raped and molested and bullied lets worry about making a big name for ourselves... oh we got ten out of a hundred dealers in Irvine today we are just something big... its just comical if people cared as much about there community as they did this website maybe Irvine wouldnt be such a trashy place to live and maybe so many young adults wouldnt be on drugs. Has anyone ever thought instead of kicking addicts we should try to help they find the help they need? Wouldnt that make more sense everyone is searching for something when they turn to drugs a way to get away, away to feel numb, not just to get high, there is something there they dont want to feel. Help people dont turn your back on them or kick them then wonder why they do what they do. I was an addict and I know what it feels like to be looked down on and it sure the hell dont make you wanna quit makes you want that much more to feel numb, but when my family stood behind me and showed me they loved me and did no matter what and they werent ashamed then I got help and got clean. So the "scum" and "stupid" people you are talking about is someones family that is lost and needs help, help these people dont turn your back or head. Every family has an addict whether they like to admit it or not somewhere someone maybe not drugs, maybe alcohol, sex, gambling or cigarettes. Once your an addict it never goes away, you just find things to compensate for the feeling and with support people can do that its not something you wake up one morning and say your done with, it takes time. So before you continue to post negative remarks put yourself in there shoes and think how you would feel they are not proud of what they done, no addict is and dont judge theres only one man that has that privilege.
This the most amazing thing I've read on this site. It is such a relief that someone out there understands. The judgement that many of these people get from the general community deters them from ever seeking help.The public view about addicts is so completely wrong, they think we want to be this way, and we can quite whenever we want. The don't see how lonely and sad and disappointment in ourselves, or we need somebody to stand our side us to keep us strong.That we need you, especially to be understanding that I know i made a major mistake, and need your help to get past it. Only if they could see through the eyes of an addict for just one day,,then maybe they would understand.

What about "JUST SAY NO". If an addict would have just said "No" the first time they wouldn't be an addict. If after they used the first time, they had a choice to just say "No" the second time. However they prefer the drug. So ......... why doesn't an addict just make that choice to say 'No'?

It's not always that easy..Half of the families in Irvine, promote selling drugs to help support their families. These families also push their kids to use because they use themselves.I've even seen a mother give her daughter a pill for her 21st birthday..that's how sad this town is. In this town the problem isn't just for teens anymore it's for the entire population. When this sell/use thing is taught to families through out generations, these people don't or have a very hard time believing that what they are doing is wrong, or that they are breaking any moral code, because that's how most of the addicts in Irvine are raised. I know I'll be attacked for saying what I have, but it is the truth. You would be surprised by the amount of families that promote this. I know their are good families out there to, but they are the minority. To the mothers and fathers that use: there is no greater pain you experience than the pain of watching your parents do drugs or choose drugs over you. I've been on both side of this fence, and my trying my best to not repeat my history. So, families try to be more understanding of what your loved ones may be going though, and addicts get help, and let your family in, it may not be easy I know, but it will help in the long run...good luck to all.

<quoted text> It is a self inflicted addiction that if one chooses they can stop. You can call it a disease all you want to. It is a shame to compare addiction to any disease that many people have by no choice of their own. I have no sympathy for a drug addict or a drunk and frown upon it being called a disease. Call it what you want but a druggie or a drunk will still be a druggie or a drunk.
Whether you disagree or not, it is a disease, and many of the people do not choose this. Some go in for surgery, they are sent home over prescribed for pain, and before you know it, you need"" them. I disagree that you see that they can stop when they choose, that's not the case either, withdraw can have deadly results. What about people with lung cancer? They choose to smoke..Should they all just rot in hell with the druggies. You lack simple compassion, especially when you can't even see the picture in front of you.

I gotta call BS on this one, I myself had Osteomyelitis and was in so much pain it hurt to touch my hair.
When released from the hospital you simply must wean yourself off the dayum drugs or remain a slave to them.
Most of the persons I have known to have a drug abuse problem, would not tolerate from others what they try to put their loved ones through.
Rationalization of the torture substance abusers put their families through is simply a feeble attempt to make the family ENABLERS INSTEAD OF SUPPORTERS.
TUFF LOVE or no contact is the only answer.

There are ways to support your loved ones without enabling them, and if you really cared that's what you would do. The need emotional support, to know that you still love them even though they messed up, and believe me we know how much we've messed up.I think the biggest mistake most people make is being able to tell the difference in a drug user and an addict. When you are in the full blown addiction, you can't just stop, without help.Having a support group is a big factor in a successful recovery. Addiction takes over your mind, body and soul, you do things that the sober you" would never even imagine doing. But, I promise that no one is harder on an addict than themselves. I'm just saying that people could be a little more understanding of what their loved ones are going through, because that's not who they want to be. Addiction can happen to anyone, everyone's bodies react different to meds...or try to be there for them, you don't really have any idea why they turned to drugs, maybe it's because they can't talk to you....

Call it what you want to. It is self inflicted addiction plain and simple. I had major surgery and was given pain medicine, no refills, I just had to deal with it and take Tylenol. Actually people with lung cancer may end up terminal and are given what they need to survive while they are alive. I do have compassion .
If it is from smoking you can bet the smoker is not out there stealing from people to buy a pack of cigs. Very different. No comparison to a drug addict.
I have no tolerance for drug abusers who you claim have a disease. hah. What a crock. How dare you compare addiction to any disease.
It is about choices people make.
Years ago major pain medicine was given to people who had a terminal illness not to everyone who enters a pain clinic.
Self inflicted, self medicated, addicts are addicts. It is not a disease it is a addiction. Gee.

I hope they bust them all.
They need to stake out the pain clinics and pharmacies and see all the drug deals that go on in parking lots right in front of people.

"Shingles" is an old-time way people would describe opening a new business. They would hang out a sign signifying the opening of the business. I know it has nothing to do with addiction. Also, to all those doctors on here that say addiction is not a disease, there are several highly educated, experienced people who will disagree with you. They have medical evidence to back their theories, so I tend to agree with them rather than someone who just wants to get on here and bash people instead of wishing them better health. I do not agree with the methods or things addicts do to obtain their fix. I can just see that what is happening now is not helping the problem. So maybe, if there were Rehab's where these people could go when they get "sick and tired" of being sick and tired, then the problem would be less prevalent. But I definitely don't see the logic of paying some addicts to set up other addicts. I don't see how it is fair to overlook criminal acts of someone who is informing to make arrests. If they are working for the police they should be subjected to strictly monitored drug tests, etc. and only then should they get something for their assistance. But sending them in wired to make a buy, then allowing them to go to another dealers house (they didn't tell the cops about maybe the price is cheaper or they can get now and pay later) and make a buy and get high. Just doesn't seem right in the overall scheme of things
