We Are Not Victims

The following is part of a post from THE PRIVILEGED ADDICT

 Being an addict is not an excuse to continue being an addict. Despite the insufferable “fight the stigma” PC nonsense you hear 24/7, we are not victims. It shouldn’t come as a surprise to anybody that addicts turn themselves into addicts and NOTHING is to blame for that but ourselves. More than anything, our parents and those who love us, of course, as well as our genes, have zero culpability in us drinking or using drugs to the point of addiction, and then maintaining our addiction year after year. I have a question for the victim peddlers…

What exactly are we victims of? Addiction? What, did addiction just fly through the air and infect us? Is addiction some intangible evil force that chose to possess us? Uh, no. Did we not ourselves drink and use drugs over and over and over and over again until we literally broke our bodies and minds and souls? Yup.
