Hi everyone. It’s been ten months since my son passed away from an accidental overdose of heroin. We are trying to cope and find peace somehow. But I just wondered if anyone could explain to me what addiction is like? I still can’t believe that after 3 years my son chose to use again. It’s just so hard to understand when he was so healthy, strong, a Marine, so many friends so much love from everyone I just don’t understand what pull addiction has on people. I can’t wrap my head around it. It’s so hard to understand when he was free from it and living his life to the fullest. I just feel like it was such a waste to lose him when he had so much going for him. My heart is just so broken as well as his fathers. Thank you for anyone that can enlighten me.
