Yes, you are right, alcoholics and addicts do cause problems for the people around them. I can't argue with that. But *all* people who have a lot of health problems cause problems for the people around them. And that is what I think people tend to forget - alcoholism and addiction are illnesses, just as much as pneumonia or cancer - it's just that it's primarily a mental thing rather than a physical thing. Because after all people don't drink themselves into a stupor or start taking pills for no reason - they are usually suffering inside in some way to make them do it. Oh, I'm not very good at explaining myself, it's just that I feel no matter what your problem is, everyone has a right for help and sympathy. And alcoholics and addicts hurt too.
