CONTROL

Updated: Jul 19

I know we all want what we want and the question is; what are we willing to do to get what we want. The addict becomes willing to lower their standards one at a time until they’re numb from the drugs. Once that happens they will do anything to get what we want. The rate of increase of sacrificing their core value system is different for everyone.

For those that have grown up honestly and became addicted later in life, it takes more time depending on the drugs desired and the resources they have left. I had destroyed all of my resources and crime was my last resort. I was a petty criminal until that wasn’t enough anymore. To continue getting high and it was taking more money than I was making at work and at being a petty thief. In my mind the next step was robbing convenience stores or killing myself. Addiction is all about control. The question is; do you know how to tell when an addict/alcoholic is lying? The universal answers is, when their lips are moving.
