Just Clarification

I just realized that I wrote something in my sidebar that makes it seem like addicts cannot be productive members of society while actively using. I just want to make it clear that I don't think that is true. There are many, many people who maintain habits and a life at the same time. Many of these people enrich our society and and my favorite argument of all is that some of us just need opiates; why are they here if not for a reason, if not for us to use to our benefit. Maybe poppies were created to comfort those of use who are less than expert at comforting ourselves.

if addicts couldn't be productive members of society then no-one who smokes cigarettes could qualify for any position of responsibility..!

My Daughter's Addiction said...

Hi Nellie- The more blogs I read the more I think that is true. With my daughters heroin addiction though, all I experienced is what most think about heroin addiction ...the pain, anxiety, agitated, nervous, dangerous, and lying side. What makes one person a functioning, using addict and another who doesn't make rational decisions [like getting in a car and driving just after using heroin]? A difference in age maybe?
