Addiction Is Nothing More Than A Choice For People Who Are Weak
I wanna give my view on these clever sounding theories the so called ‘experts’ have about addiction like the idea that it’s a disease and people are powerless to control it blah, blah, blah. It’s total bullshit! My brother is a drug addict and that is a life he has chosen for himself - nothing more, nothing less - despite everything we’ve tried to do to help him.
We’ve bent over backwards to make sure he gets the best treatment (he’s been through rehab 3 times), bailed him out of jail a bunch of times, stood by him and supported him despite all the shit he’s caused (stealing, lying) ... and that’s not even the half of it.
My brother is a selfish, self-centred, ungrateful, dishonest and lying bastard. He thinks of no one else but himself. He doesn’t care who he hurts or how much damage he’s done, he just carries on regardless. He’s practically destroyed our mom, but that doesn’t seem to bother him.
The experts at these clinics tell us that he has a disease and he’s powerless to control it ... with all the rest of their clever sounding theories. It’s all crap! This is the life he has chosen for himself because he can’t be bothered making the effort to make something of himself. He’s always been lazy and this is just the easy way out for him.
I honestly don’t see how these expensive rehabs and so called experts make much of a difference. Look at how low their success rates are. Those people that beat addiction do so because they realise what they’re doing to themselves is ridiculous and so they sort themselves out. I’m sure they could do that without all these clever people passing on their clever sounding theories.
Bottom line is people get addicted because they’re weak and they don’t have the backbone to fight through tough times. My brother is just another one. I’ve stopped caring now one way or another. It’s time to cut him loose. It’s a life he’s chosen and that’s just the way it is.
