do you believe that drug addiction is filling a void?

i believe that drug addiction is either a filler or a crutch. meaning, every drug addict is either using his drug of choice to fill a void in their life, OR to run away from something.

i know because i used to be a drug addict myself, and i’ve relapsed 2 days ago.

prior to relapsing i was clean for over a year. then suddenly a few weeks ago all my friends left me and my girlfriend left me (for unrelated reasons). both have no desire to talk to me.

i am turning 20 on saturday. i am alone and lost and depressed.

when i’m high on opiates i am totally okay with what’s going on in my life. when i’m not on opiates i sit on the computer miserable.

Addiction is complex matter and it is often the case that people use drugs or alcohol for different reasons. I will say that once an addict always an addict, whenever an addict stops using does not mean that her or she is no longer an addict. It is usually the case that recovering addicts find something to put in place of their drugs or alcohol to deal with life’s challenges. Many turn to faith, while others turn to some sort of 12-Step program which incorporates a higher power of ones choosing. I will say that few ever recover if they do not find an outlet like the aforementioned, those who do recover are those who are willing to be honest with themselves about the severity of their problem and are willing to take certain steps to change their life for the better.

I am sorry to hear about your relapse, please do not be discouraged, sometimes relapse has to be a part of one’s story in order for them to reach a point where they are truly ready to take a different path. i would also like to point out that it is next to impossible to recover with out the help of others.

Opiates once made me feel good, nothing could bother me in life. However, as time passed and I went deeper into my addiction my problems increased exponentially to a point where I was looking up at the bottom. Addiction is a progressive illness and if it goes untreated there is usually only three places we end up: jails, institutions, or worse – dead.

I wish you the best….

Do you think drug addiction is a disease or choice?

As a former drug addict who’s been through numerous addiction therapies and clinics, I’ve been presented with all the so called evidence of drug addiction being a disease numerous times. Its true that certain people have addictive personalities, I certainly do, but in the end quitting your addiction is your choice. I think the disease theory does more harm then good. What does everybody else think and why?

It is a choice. You choose to do drugs, knowing full well what the consequences would be. It’s a stupid choice that I hope I am never ignorant enough to make. It is not only your choice to take a drug the first time, it is also your choice to fall to the addiction. It is also a choice to quit, as hard as it may be. It is not a disease, because you can control it.

Is a theme of drug addiction too mature for a dramatic story for 5th/6th graders?

I am currently writing a dramatic children’s story about a dog that is raised as a fighting dog and then is released from that environment. If I continue down this path, one of the dogs’ owners will be a drug addict. Although the dug addiction would definitely be small undertone, there would be many obvious references to drugs throughout the story. I could feasibly avoid this path, but it would make things a bit difficult, as the character’s drug addiction serves as a catylist for numerous events and it provides a source of conflict and tension in an otherwise peaceful part of the story. What do you all think?

I think that while the kids would probably be able to handle it the parents would never let them read it because parents are stupid.

0 Krissies Story of Recovery from Addiction to Opiates & Benzoshttp://www.MalibuBeachRecovery.com – Krissie Bergo developed carpel tunnel syndrome while working as a legal secretary, and four botched operations caused her to also develop RSD.

A workers comp doctor prescribed opiates and benzodiazapines, and that’s where the trouble started. In September 2008, a judge ordered Krissie into treatment.

She spent more than 70 days at Malibu Beach Recovery Center, 62 of them just to detox.

Two years later she came back to Malibu and successfully detoxed from suboxone.
