That sucks. I never even tried any sort of drugs beyond alcohol. To a degree, I understand how kids that are young and naïve get hooked. An adult really should know better.My wife's cousins grew up together in a semi-suburban community and they were very close. There were 2 brothers and one of them grew up rough. In jail a lot or on probation. The other was a good family man, raised 2 kids right and had a great life as a car salesman. He got commendations all the time from this particular company and did a lot of community stuff for free on his spare time.
In the last year he has lost a great paying job, kicked his wife of more than 30 years out on the street. What a turn around from what he once was. This guy has got to be in his mid 50's and I can't for the life of me figure out what the hell went wrong in his mind.
I hate this crap the dope dealers are putting out on the street that can get people so hooked up that they just go freaking upside down in their life.
The best speaker I ever heard about this was Chris Herren. I was assigned to a police detail at one of his speeches at our local high school. He's a great speaker and discussed in detail his dabbling in drugs that led to a heroin addiction that ended his NBA career, and almost caused his death due to an OD. He also described how he recovered.
