When someone is in the throes of addiction, they'll do whatever they have to in order to get their next high. The old saying that an addict will steal your wallet and help you look for it is so true. My son was addicted to heroin and stole from me and my wife...even his little brother. They don't do it because they want to. They do it because they need to. Addiction makes people do horrible things that they wouldn't normally do.
