Its obvious that only when the addict is ready, will they stop. We rack our brains trying to solve this. We believe they have mental problems when "some" really dont. I think some of us can handle it better if we think its mental. Their brains are just messed up from drugs. No drugs, no "mental problems". Thats why mental hospitals wont take someone using, they cant tell what behavior is drugs or not. Have to accept "some" just enjoy the high. And will probably OD sooner or later. Detachment is the only way to some kind of peace, i believe. Its very sad.
