This is one of those personal posts that gets me kind of heated; okay, fired up, A LOT!
Drug addiction is NOT a disease. Just like drinking is not a disease; it’s a choice! You choose to take that drink and you choose to do that drug. No one is putting a gun to your head, telling you you must do these things.
Calling it a “disease” just placates the drug user/alcoholic and makes them feel better about the problem. Calling it a disease is counter productive and enables them to keep on their destructive path because in calling it a “disease” they don’t have to take PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY. Basically, giving the person a free pass.
I have zero sympathies or compassion for addicts. Especially those that relapse for no good reason other than they have no will-power to control their emotions.
