Drug use (drug addiction) remains a major worldwide scourge. Premature deaths, risk of disease and problems with the law become part of the daily life of addicts.
The progressive shift away from responsibilities, whether from family, work, or even simple things in life that make us happy such as going to a football game, fishing, hiking, etc., quickly goes into the background. The obsession with drug use (drug addiction) and finding ways to get more, transforms people by breaking all moral and ethical values.
All mind changers are drugs, whether legal or not. If you suffer from drug abuse, or if you have someone who is close to you, detached and in pain, you need help getting back to being that person who has the will to live and life goals that one day got lost along the way. We all make wrong choices, but making the same mistake is a sign of insanity.
