Re: ““Addicts need help with rehabilitation”, reader’s letter, Feb. 28:


I am an addict but I’m also addicted to hard work. I became addicted to morphine after injuring my back moving furniture. I also hurt my neck in two motor vehicle accidents.


I’m new to Vancouver and the doctors here think that I’m a junkie or something when I ask them to prescribe morphine. I’m stuck with no money and no work and in great pain. If I was prescribed the morphine I need I’d get back to work.
