The disease of addiction
Question: 
What does "the disease of addiction" mean to me?
Answer: 

  The disease of addiction means to me to never have another easy day. To never have another day free from thinking about getting and using drugs. The disease of addiction is like a death sentence to me. As i was growing up playing house with my cousins I always wanted to play the things I saw my parents do. Those things just happend to have been popping pills and downing booze. So I'd pretend my apple juice was beer and my m and m's were pills. I would act drunk. I remember it vividly. I believe that I was born an addict because I didn't have a prayer to not be an addict. Addiction is something you carry with you for a lifetime. It is a plaugue we're sentenced with for life.
