    @stroker42... Thank you for your post. Wow. So powerful. My deepest condolences on the loss of your sister. Even though it was more than 20 years ago, I'm sure it's still an incredibly difficult thing to deal with. Addiction takes way too many people away from us much too soon. It's so sad.

    I'm sorry you fell into the trap of addiction, too, but I'm happy to hear that methadone gave you your family and life back. Maybe someday you can consider getting off methadone.

    Thanks again for sharing with us. Your post was so heartfelt and honest. Maybe it will help educate some people who don't quite "get" what addiction is all about.

    Sending you tons of positive juju.

    I believe you said what needs to be said in the correct form. Some responses that I've read seem to be a little cold and a little too harsh.
    Maybe we all need to have a little drink of empathy
