You came on here and basically said, right, listen up folks, this is how addiction works, if youre an addict then xyz, thats because of xyz - basically talking like you know everything on the subject when pretty much everything you said is just flat out wrong. Your views are made up speculations about a subject which by your own admission you know next to nothing about. As i said, im an alcoholic. When I quit, i was probably a year from losing my job and home. I maybe had 2-3 years left. Ive lost a number of friends from heroin overdoses and many others struggle with on/off heroin use. So yeah, its a very, very emotional subject for me. Sorry if i sound a bit too harsh but i get really, really annoyed when people talk nonsense about addiction. Yes of course you are entitled to air your opinion. As long as everyone is clear that you are wrong on virtually every point you made.
