It Ain't my Fault
There is something that pisses me off something fierce.
It is people that do not own up to their mistakes. It is people that constantly make excuses for their own bad decisions.
Someone else is always to blame for their fuck-ups.
In my opinion being addicted to crack, heroin, meth, pain killers, porn, chocolate, fat women or whatever a person finds themselves addicted to is not a disease.
It is a choice.
People choose to get high.
People choose to eat until they have to have our brave firefighters use a forklift to get their 900 pound asses out of their house.
All of this is a choice. A bad choice, but a choice none the less.
So why are scientists, government paid scientists, (i.e. tax payers are paying for their research)wasting our money to conduct studies that try to prove that getting high and letting your weight balloon to crazy proportions is a disease?
I understand that depression will drive a person to do certain things that they would not normally do. But it is still a choice to put a needle in your arm, or a glass pipe to your lips.
I have been around crack dealers and crack heads. I have seen what people will do to get their fix. It is no disease. It is a weakness. It takes a very weak person to choose to die slow instead of just ending their pain quick.
A person would have to be from Pluto to not know what drugs, to much food, or unprotected sex will do to you.
So the bottom line is this...
In this society there is no repercussions for your actions.
A person can do whatever the hell they choose to do with no consequences.
All they have to do is say, is 'It is not my fault that I just stole from my mother and disowned my family, my wife and kids to get money for crack. I have a disease, so why worry about it.'
Addiction is not a disease.
A person had to make the decision to start doing whatever it is they are addicted to.
They had to make a choice.
No one is born high, fat or with a pair of dice or a racing form in their hands.
So in my opinion, and this is only my opinion, If a person chooses to start life threatening behavior, then he/she is a threat to society as a whole and should be dealt with like a threat.
I have no remorse for crack heads or anyone else that uses their choice to get addicted to whatever they choose to get addicted to as an excuse to keep doing whatever it is they are doing.
In my opinion Fuck em.
