When a person gets addicted, he/she not only destroys him/herself but all the other aspects of his/her life. Addiction affects family members and loved ones a great deal and the pain they feel looking at their loved one destroy his/her life is incomparable. I have seen many families being shattered because of drugs and substances. The pain increases with time and as it goes unresolved, the distance and misunderstanding also becomes bigger. Do not let addiction ruin the most important thing that you could ever have, people who genuinely care for and love you.
