I lost my first school friend to a heroin overdose the year I turned 16. By age 18, I'd buried five. I must have had an angel on my shoulder, because despite the company I kept, and the opportunities I was given, I never even felt the slightest bit tempted to try it myself.
Alcohol and drugs are dangerous substances that have the potential to destroy lives. But I'm glad I live in The Netherlands where a junkie is viewed first and foremost as a victim, a person who is ill and needs help, and not as a criminal even though they may turn to crime to feed their habit.
I have a very low tolerance for drunks, though. I can't abide them and won't have them anywhere near me. Needless to say, I never get drunk myself, though I do enjoy the odd glass now and again.
