Addiction Can Happen to Anyone

Addiction Can Happen to Anyone

“You know addiction really sneaks up on you. You don’t wake up one morning and say you might be an addict, but it really does happen. It’s not a joke.

It doesn’t mean you have to be someone under a bridge, it’s not someone that you see on TV, like this is a real thing.

Anyone can suffer from it. Anyone can, you know, give things up that are so important to them.”
