A Question of Understanding
Tough love? Is this the only kind of love an addict understands?

Is addiction a disease? Or do we (addicts) CHOOSE drugs instead of, or over treatment?

Is childhood trauma/abuse a good enough reason/excuse to continue to use drugs? And for how long?

Is it Ok to lie, steal, abuse or abandon those who love us so that we can get high?

Can we (as a society) be too hard on someone who suffers from addiction? And alternatively, can we be too soft? Or is there a balance between the two?

Should we decriminalise all drugs of dependence? And will this reduce harm? And if we were to do this, would it change society's attitudes towards those who become addicted?

Will this course of action solve any of the problems caused by addiction? Or will it create a whole new set of issues? Or both?

Should drug use become a health issue instead of a law and order issue?

Will there ever be a time where drug use will become a thing of the past? Not cool or hip, but what, in reality, it is...playing Russian roulette with our lives...mental, physical, financial and legal?

Are there any easy answers when it comes to drug use in society?

These are only some of the questions that will need to be answered before we can begin to heal from the epidemic of drug abuse that is gripping the world.
