Just seen the most bullchit commercial ever. The guy said he "was" an addict for ten years and now he is cured. Don't you think there would be a 50 year waiting list? Make Lindsay Lohan the spokesperson and maybe I'll become a believer.

Not so. I know a guy who was an alcoholic and became a crackhead in utica. He has a wonderful daughter who was young at the time and things started getting a little thin in their life.
He found a rehab, quit everything and now is one of the top DOT engineers in the state, and the daughter is in school and flourishing. He's clean since 2000 and that's a fact I can attest to.

Your friend is not cured of his addiction. He abstains from using and if he's smart he is treating it as well with a 12 step program.

Yeah I bet if you drop a 8 ball of crack on his kitchen floor his daughter will be snaking her azz at Teasers 3 months later just to pay her $6 rent at Gilmore Village.

I would think that if someone can refrain from drinking or taking drugs, that person is not an addict.

Wishful thinking. You are so sad and pathetic. Anytime someone has any success you fkn fake cops who live in that shyt life for a paycheck just can't STAAAAND it. Too fkn bad for you loser your world is so closed of and a dead end. He makes FAR more than you pigs ever could. Another success story for education winning out over menial labor and hero wanabees. O and his daughter was the reason for his epiphany, too bad your fat kid will only follow in your flat footsteps. Jealous pathetic oootican fks! LOL!

There is no addict once you stop using. A person who was an alcohlic is no longer alcoholic if they stop drinking successfully. Twelve step programs are not necessary for all substance abusers.

There's an old joke that goes like this:
Why do they call alcoholism a disease?
So they can bill insurance!
And that's the truth. BTW, the disease concept gives lazy weak bastards an excuse to relapse! Back to rehab, jail, welfare, disability, or any combo of the aforementioned crutches. I'm sick to death of paying for you all!
