Why Does My Loved One Seem to Love Drugs More than Me?
A famous Oscar-winning actor at the top of his career is found wandering the streets of Los Angeles in a drug haze. A beautiful celebrity known for her fashion sense is sent to jail for driving under the influence of drugs. The daughter of a nationally known politician is convicted of selling cocaine. It’s hard to understand why people throw away their lives just for drugs.
It’s even harder to understand how someone you care about allows himself to be fired from one job after another, even though he has the talent to succeed, because of a cocaine problem. Or how she allows her need for painkillers to come before taking care of her own children. Or why he lets methamphetamine addiction destroy his health to the point that he becomes a skeleton with a sunken face and blackened teeth. When you love someone with drug addiction, it is impossible to understand why they care more about their drugs than they care about you. Why do people do this? Why do they allow their drug habits to take over their lives?
The answer is that you are asking the wrong questions.
