I’m very fortunate to have avoided most of the destructive behavior even with the trauma I suffered at the hands of my family growing up. I am still healing at 48.

Not everyone with a difficult childhood become an addict, not everyone with a “healthy, normal” childhood avoids addiction.

There does come a point in time where blaming the past is no longer viable. We are all responsible for the choices we make. To let another’s actions dictate your future is your choice. Take personal responsibility, clean yourself up and then give communication, empathy, kindness and the tools of rehabilitation to others in need. Namaste’ 🙏

Not every one coming from a childhood filled with trauma results in drug abuse, violence etc…
Some people actually do learn from the mistake from their parents.

Also serious childhood injuries can lead to problems later in life, even with good parents.

No thanks, I’ll attribute it to personal weakness from lack of natural selection in the age of modern medicine 🤷‍♂️ it’s not other people’s responsibility to solve your problems 🐸☕

I believe the whole point is to have compassion for others. At some point your own world may be changed.

It’s a true statement.
Minus the first paragraph. Because weed and booze and cigs are gateways.

After being in recovery im no longer allowing my self to be negatively effected by my “trauma” but if I use that to allow my self to say ” i can just drink a couple” ill be right back to putting a needle in my arm. .

You can be the best parent in the world, do everything right, and still have a child that makes a bad choice. We all have free will. Stop blaming bad choices on someone else. We all took DARE in school. We all knew drugs were bad. You use them, you pay the price.

A similar sentiment in the book Hilbilly Elegy. Excellent reading 📖

Look, I come from the worst childhood of anyone I know, I’ve experienced & witnessed things that people think only happens in the movies & I am none of those things listed above. You know why? Because I looked at the hand I’d been dealt & said “nope, that’s not the life I want” then I consciously made the decision to do better… We are ALL the product of our own decisions. Some have the luxury of starting from a better place, but that gives no one a free pass to blame their past or others for their life choices.… Read more »

After reading the comments, I think a lot of you need to watch a few episodes of Intervention. Lots of families seem happy, loving and trauma free because they cover everything up to keep up appearances. The addict themselves may have suffered a trauma that they kept secret. Unless you have walked in the addict’s shoes, you don’t know what’s going on in their mind.

I know plenty of people who grew up in loving, caring, and nurturing homes who became addicts. So no, not all addicts are the product of abuses.

These are some strong words that assume a lot.
Addiction can happen to anyone for a variety of reasons not related to a horrific incident in life, and had wonderful lives growing up. Not everyone laughs at those who are living a life of struggles, misfortune or blames them for where life has taken them.

Every human being has a bandaid for their emotional distress. The unhappy wife spends a lot of money and buys things to fill a void. A lonely person has many animals, or eats a lot. Drugs are a bandaid as well. Just because someone turned towards drugs as their bandaid doesn’t make them any less. Just sadly they at first don’t realize they are making their road a lot harder. An it doesn’t necessarily have to stem from child hood. A person who has a hard time making friends, the person who loved and lost, the one who never had… Read more »

In my experience drug addiction is caused by (all of the above ) as well as just having an addictiver personality, bordom, escapism , and just having fun , a few to many times.. addiction does.not care who you are, on any level.

I would say drug abuse and alcohol is a symptom. But beyond that I would say the stigma and the treatment of addicts isn’t helping anyone. Making them feel less than human.

Follow the research. Look at places/countries that don’t have as much drug problems and what they do. It’s enlightening

This seems to overlook the need for more mental health services. Yes some had great childhoods, some had horrible ones; yet peers like them did not go down the same path. Mental health is always a factor

Generalizations of any kind are faulty regardless of which side of the argument you are on.
