    I've never used. But I have had friends

    and relatives, some of whom got clean long term, some of whom went into the grey abyss way too soon. Last week we buried a friend who had been using on and off for several years. Mitigating circumstances, but a user nonetheless. But I also have a friend who just celebrated 8...
