What you said is horrible. I have a son with addiction problems. You never know your statement may come back to bit you. Please try not to be so judgemental. I'm sure if your life was examined we could find some to judge.

You'd be surprised who is a needle junkie these days thanks to pain pills. Never assume that the people you think because they work and act normal that they are exempt from this disease.the old stigma just didn't apply anymore.
