The Addict as a Predator
Active addicts are predators, and right at the moment I am angry about how that hurts their families.
An active addict has no real thought or concern for others, he is completely self-obsessed on satisfying his need and compulsively focused on satisfying it. So what does that mean for those of us living with active addicts? A world of hurt.
A devoted wife gets blindsighted? The predator strikes - taking the money and possesions to use and discarding wife for addict girlfriend to use alongside him.
Incredulous parents find their addict child has stolen from them to get high? The parasite predator strikes again.
Right now I am seeing the pain of those affected by drug abuse. And I just that much more committed to spreading the message of recovery after this perspective. Our lives are on the line.
