I feel strongly about the abuse of drugs and alcohol. I don’t really have any qualms about alcohol per se (hey, I like to drink too), or people choosing to use drugs to try to run away from their problems (I believe that it’s not at all the best way to deal with problems, but hey it’s their life, right?). However, I cannot help but raise an eyebrow to those who take them abusively.
I have a close relative who used to experience domestic violence, caused by drug abuse. To make things worse, the violence used to happen in the presence of a barely one year old baby. As young as that baby was, she already showed signs of fear of her abusive father, as she would always cry whenever he tried to carry her.
Abuse (of any sort) hurt (both physically and emotionally) others, and even those who commit them themselves. They break up families and endanger many. Those who suffer these should really think about going for drug treatment. These drug rehab institutes, will not only help them overcome their bouts of cravings, but will even try to help them deal with their emotions.
