I applaud anyone who takes steps to regain control of their lives. I am an alcoholic, I quit completely. My neighbor went from pain pills to heroin. Her use became very destructive. Thank she went from heroin to methadone to marijuana.
It is not a perfect solution but it is a better life than the one where heroin had total control. She is not a risk with the law. She doesn't need to sleep with strange men to pay for her pot habit but she did when heroin was her preferred drug.
I do not understand why abstinence proponents find harm reduction such a terrible thing. They live one day at a time, why is it wrong for people to regain control of their lives one step at a time until they get to where they (not other people) want to be.
