This right here, breaks my heart. I have never had an issue with drug or alcohol addiction. That’s not to say I have not partied in my life. I have. But there were things I would never go near. That I never had a desire to even try.
I have experienced my body becoming adapted to a drug. Morphine. I would not say I was addicted. I never took it for a high. It was prescribed to me after my accident. I fought like hell to get off of it. I did not want to be on it. But my body was dependent on it and it took time to wing myself down and then finally off of it. But I did!
I am curious though. Why do some people become addicted while others do not? What is the factor in this equation? I do believe a lot of people start down this destructive path of addiction in order to escape. Never realizing what hell will follow.
Everyone has pain and everyone needs to escape reality from time to time. Some people become adrenaline junkies. Some listen to music. Some get lost in watching movies. Some experiment with drugs and alcohol.
It’s sad that so many lives are turned upside down and inside out from addiction. It all started just trying to escape, just trying to escape reality.
