“My Name Is Meth Poem”

  1. The reality is that addiction is a disease like any other. No-one ‘chooses’ it. It’s an illness of the brain, often inherited from addicted parents (maybe alcoholics?). It’s never as simple as it seems and many systems, like in the US, do not help drug addicts, but treat them like criminals. If they were treated more like people with a true illness (like cardiac disease), one that doesn’t go away in weeks, but rather is a life long disease, maybe people could find help. And if stigma was not attached to this illness, that drug addicts aren’t mentally ill, or crazy or dirty…maybe it would help too. It’s a very, very sad thing. We need more money (in the US) put towards this issue. Cardiac disease in the #1 killer in the US and millions and millions of dollars are spent every year on it, yet no one gets angry or nasty with people who are obese or unhealthy due to this issue? I just don’t get it?? Thanks for bringing this issue to light.

  2. Meth definitely doesn’t discriminate. It hurts the addict as well as those who love the addict.
