Just had a conversation about it with a group of people and they're all saying it's a disease. What do you think? Do you think that it should be referred to as a deadly illness? I personally don't think it is a disease. I believe it's a choice someone is making day-after-day. Not a disease. I think people just call it a disease so they don't have to take any responsibility for it.
My husband was an addict and he never once referred to it as a disease.

Not sure what to call it..My brother was a coke addict for over 20 years..
I can tell you this though...they do have to take responsibility for it...
They have to take responsibility for all the horrible choices they made while being and addict and they have to take responsibility for all the people they hurt along the way...

Responsibility. How does one become addicted to drugs? By making a choice to start using. There are people who are weak minded who have an addictive personality but I don't think it is a disease just poor character and are weak minded. They can change if they can muster the strength to do so.
