    Junkie misconceptions

    I could not speak with authority on this subject without being through two similar experiences. Detox

    I'm an admitted alcoholic. Nothing new. Gave myself up to detox, not once but twice. There is shame involved in the process, double or more for having to go back.

    But that is not the issue. In detox you meet every person you would not otherwise. Every kind of addict. Street born heroin, meth, crack addicts. Some fit the stereotypical minority, in this case indigenous, others high functioning members of the majority.
    That was the most shocking thing to me, people who had reached levels of success we would all hope for were there with me.

    The one constant among all I met, was a level of intelligence. There were no dullards. Once they detoxed from their problem they were a delight.

    Unfortunately detox is just a life saving environment. It doesn't change the world you go back to.

    p.s. on second thought there were a few wack jobs

    I've actually known a lot of addicts and alcoholics over time who manage to function normally for awhile, holding respected positions or careers.

    Eventually it all comes crashing down, but it amazes me how some of them get by undetected for so long. I've especially known a number of doctors and lawyers like this. Imagine getting one of these doctors performing surgery on you. That's just one of several reasons surgery scares me.

    I'm glad that it was never part of my makeup to want to drink or use drugs. I believe that much of it is hereditary whether it appeals to you or not, and of course it's a wide range. I'm all the way at the "no appeal" end.

    Drunks can be the worst but most aren't and most aren't drunk all the time.

    When your natural character sucks then it's really the worst. Good luck with that

    You are without a doubt the worst poster in that last 10 years. Please do society a favor and jam two individual tacks (or small inch nails) into each of your eyeballs so you cannot see a computer any longer.
