Answer for question 4528.

Have you ever been addicted to anything? If so, what was it? If that addiction was a negative addiction for you, how did you break it (or how are you working on doing so)?
Yes I have .. Alcohol.. I stopped drinking it 38 years ago and haven't a drink since. We are all addicted to something and at times need a rude awakening to realize it. I stopped smoking 10 years ago. That is another addiction.. For years society has encouraged the young to drink and smoke because they say its fun but what they are trying to do is hook you so you will come back for more.. The legal drug dealers don't care because they say its your choice...All they want is your money... Millions of young people have died because of these people. However, Human lungs were meant to breath air not marijuana or cigarette smoke. Your Kidneys and Liver were not meant to process alcohol only water.. Now its Medical Marijuana, another addiction. Contrary to popular belief, to an addictive personally Marijuana is a stepping stone drug and will lead to the use of heavier drugs like prescription drugs, crack cocaine and heroin. Just because it has the word "Medical" does not mean your Grandson or Granddaughter won't use it. Sooner or later someone will give it to them. At that point its only be a matter of time. There is no “Cure” for the disease of Addiction. When you stop smoking, using drugs or drinking alcohol you cannot start again. If you do it will be like you never stopped and it will get worst. The fatal progression of the addiction disease never stops. Total abstinence for the rest of your life is the only way to survive. You live in a very dangerous world and no one cares about you...

Good for you! that's a hard thing to do. My brother struggled with it his whole life and it nearly killed him. Even after that and with the knowledge that any alcohol would kill him, the addiction was too strong for him. We buried him four years ago.

Stay strong!

I'm not so sure that is where he ended up. His life was hell and while much of it was his own doing, I still loved him. Thanks and keep up the good fight.

You could say I was addicted to tea (or the caffeine in it). I gave it up more than once but only gave it up for good when it started irritating my stomach lining. I am surprised, looking back, that my mother gave us tea from an early age. But it was 'the norm' back then.

Good on you for getting off both those things. Society does influence or even pressure a young man to do that - or did, at least. I think the culture is changing now.

That's awesome! My SO used to smoke cigerettes, but he stopped years ago. He's more addicted to snuff. Oddly enough, wet tobacco (snuff) is banned in the EU than cigerettes are but when Sweden entered the EU, they made a plea to be omitted from the ban or they wouldn't join (because Denmark, Finland, and Sweden have heavy snuff users).

Unfortunately, my SO's dad was an alcoholic and he had a stroke as a result from it that killed him back in 2013. It seems his brother is on the same road :( Luckily, darling isn't as he doesn't want to become like his father.
