Re: "Junkies should live with their choices,"
It is ridiculous in saying that there should be no help or hope for people who are addicted to drugs because they should live with it. If a drug-addicted person (not junkie) is looking to get clean and wants help, it should be there for them.
From prescription drug addictions to a heroin addiction the key word is "addiction." It’s a disease and is something that many people are predisposed to genetically.
Yes, for many the first time using a drug is a choice, although even a casual social experimentation by the most high profile successful people can turn into an addiction.
