So, it is an unfortunate reality, but there are millions of people that suffer from drug addiction. It can be from alcohol, it can be from prescription drugs, or it can be something more hardcore like cocaine and heroin.

Unfortunately, I have known many people with drug addiction. It's possibly as a result to this that I'm averse to taking medication: I haven't taken medication to help deal with my anxiety problems because I'm afraid of becoming addicted, and I don't drink out of fear of either not being able to control my emotions, or of becoming addicted.

Now, my family's endeavours have not ended in a happy outcome. But what about you guys? Have any of you gone through addiction in the past? Did you manage to overcome it? Or are you still having troubles dealing with it?
