I never want to write this post but Im honestly getting tired of it. Im tired of seeing perfectly good lives thrown away by drugs. Yes its an addiction and its a disease all that crap. I have my opinions and they come from a different place.
I have grown up nearly my entire life with a sister who is a heroin addict. So when I get online yesterday and I read that one of my favorite actors has died of a heroin overdose I just lose my shit.
Why? Why throw away that kind of life and career for heroin? What did heroin do for you?
Then we all get online(and I am guilty) and we glorify his death. We say how amazing he was which is true, we say how sad it was which is also true but we dont say how terrible it is that he threw his career, life and family away for heroin.
Its a disgusting drug(as they all are) and it tears your life apart. I know this first hand as I saw what it has done to my sister and my family.
I did not watch Glee so when the actor from that show died I thought the same things.
Same with Health Ledger, Michael Jackson etc. Its sad. Its a lot of talent just gone.
We all sit here and we glorify it.
Take this for what it is. It’s just my opinion. Im not here to start arguments and get in fights. But like I said I have spent most of my life around this addiction and its frustrating to see it first hand then see people glorify it.
