We are all surrounded by them. It's more common than people realize.

I think in our society we dehumanize drug addicts. We all look down on them.

We view them as losers but the thing is, we are all flawed - we all make poor mistakes, it's just part of the human condition. Addicts are people who made a poor choice to start but that does not mean they are a bad person.

I think instead of punishing addicts, we need to help them.

Addiction is a disease. That impulsive decision to try a substance shouls not ruin their entire life but it will. We need to help them.
