Trading addictions


I know someone who is over-the-top religious. Well, I know a lot of people who are, but this one stuck out.

Turns out she used to be a meth addict, and possibly addicted to other drugs, as well. Heavily.

She doesn’t do drugs anymore. But, no, she isn’t “clean”. She just traded the meth for God, but she’s still just an addict, burning out her brain cells for a high.

Once I learned this, her religiosity made perfect sense. I won’t try to get her off this drug, just like I wouldn’t have tried to get her off the other drug. Some people seem to need something to be addicted to, and can’t function otherwise. God is more socially acceptable than meth. For now. It’s still tragic.
