    Meth Is Boring.

    I kid...I actually have no idea. I mean obviously it isn't because of the fact that so many people are addicted to it. SOMETHING about it must be fun! But when I watch this show, on a die hard regular basis might I add, I find myself more moved and excited about the people who...

    This was an excellent intervention on a young girl who already had a foot in the grave.  Unfortunately she did relapse but amazingly enough became sober when she got pregnant. One of the things that I have noticed in all of these shows is the amount of smoking that all of...

    This Is a Good Show

    I think it's a good show for young people to watch, they can learn exactly what happens with drugs, alcohol, etc...   However, once has to wonder how much longer this show will be on the air. A lot of people watch it or have heard of it. A lot more people will probably...

    Is That Me?

    Everytime I watch "Intervention", I wonder if I'm an addict.  I drink more days than I don't drink.  I enjoy it.  Damn, I'm sounding like I'm rationalizing it right now.

    I really liked the episode about Sara the meth addict.  She had lost everything including custody of her child Madison and could or would not break the habit.  She went to treatment begrudgingly but came out a real success.  I was very happy for her.  She is...
