    I wouldn't compare addictions with other mental illnesses like schizophrenia or bi-polar disorder because those people never had an influence on their disease.
    Lenny - most people start off drinking alcohol which is legal. The addiction kicks in and they need more and different experiences and move on to drugs. People with mental illness are the same. I treat them everyday. They have a choice to make which is to admit they have an issue and get help. The biggest problem with bi-polar and schizo is patients who stop taking their meds. That is a choice they make, just like using a drug, if you want to look at it realistically.

    I don't believe any human is awaste, of space or otherwise. Until the day they die, there is always hope for people.

    My cousin was just visiting. She has been sober for about 25 years, after joining AA. She has been surrounded by addicts, to both alcohol and drugs, for those years.

    Her opinion was that heroin addicts were the most difficult to treat, and she said a lot of facilities won't even take them because they are considered such poor prospects for recovery.

    One of her friends had a 17-year-old heroin-addict son who was accepted into a "jail"-style facility, where the person can't leave until they complete the program, and until someone says that they will accept them into their home to keep an eye on them.

    At the end of the program, my cousin's friend said that she would take her son back into their home (although they had grave reservations because they had two younger non-addicted children living with them). Before they could get to the facility, he had gone out, picked up some stuff, gone back to his room in the facility and overdosed. When the parents got there, their son was lying in his bed, brain dead.

    My cousin doesn't believe that people make the choice to use or, especially, to be addicts. She believes that it is something almost genetic, ingrained into your personality. Since she and her husband are both recovering addicts (with 25 years of sobriety), she lives in fear that her three sons might have the gene/propensity. She talks with them a lot, though, so that they understand the risks, and know what she went through.

    For the record - I do not believe addicts are capable of making choices. In my post I was trying to point out to Lenny that those with mental illness could been viewed with the same standards. Addiction is a mental illness and these people have lost the ability to make sound choices. Otherwise they would choose to not drink, do drugs or would choose to take their meds daily in cases of bi-pol and schizo.

    I had one wife is session say it is a disease but if her husband had cancer he would choose to get help so she couldn't understand why he would get help for his addiction. It took a long time for her to realize that cancer is not a mental illness and the two cannot be compared.

    as far as food is concerned, people can look at bad foods as an alcoholic would, i mean an alcoholic still has to drink water right? it just shouldn't be laced with vodka. you can eat healthy food, just think of fast food as beer and cakes are like cocktails. you stay away from that shit, on the wagon so to speak. that's the analogy i try to use.
    Huh? I wasn't responding to a single thing you said-just to what heaven said-it is hard with food addictions, and I think part of that is you can't 'quit' food.

    the rest was board 'injoking'.

    I did not even read your post at first..sorry. And yeah, I do think it (addiction) is a disease btw.

    I agree it's a mental illness either brought on by dna or just some cross-wiring in the brain that makes one prone to addiction.

    And isn't it also true that once someone starts abusing, their brain re-wires to want/need the drug even more? It's like a maze they get stuck in and it's terribly difficult to get out.

    I normally do read all the posts, but skipped that one and a few others..I do not make it a habit of skipping your posts! lol. I just noticed that one line in heaven's response and responded to it.

    * I am not in the cool crowd either-I do not have a vagina or a massive internet wang, and nobody has given me the cuntsuit to wear either.
