I had my gall bladder removed. I didn't then have it put back inside so i could get it removed repeatedly.
Yes some people are predisposed to the effects of alcohol becoming habitual. still gotta actually drink it though.
Insensitivity aside, the gene pool is a little clearer. If anyone thinks that makes me a bad person, then understand this, I have experience with this first hand.

Everyone is dealt a different hand. There are moves you can make with yours that might not be possible for another player. As none of us knew her personally, other than as a celebrity or a concept, if anyone is angry or frustrated with Amy Winehouse they are most likely projecting their own personal feelings towards their own situation onto a safe, external situation. Instead of doing that, just focus on your own situation and making it better and more positive.
You could just as easily state that a kid who falls from a tree and breaks his leg CHOSE to climb a tree, but it does little to solve anything.
Either way I feel terribly bad for this young woman and her family. Whether she was using or not, addiction is a scary and lonely place for anyone to be.
I only can hope it was quick.
I feel bad for them too. I have lost an uncle to drugs. I have several others in my life who have been serious drug addicts. I know how it is. But to compare drug/alcohol abuse to a broken leg.... well I can't ever get behind that idea.
Chemical dependency ultimately is caused by choice. Sure, there can be underlying mental issues that lead someone to make that choice, but the two are not even remotely the same thing.

Meanwhile I was not told anything about drugs or alcohol until much later after kindergarten. I did them too. Guess I've always been a rebel lol.
I don't think addiction is as black and white as anyone in this thread is making it out to be. There have been countless studies done on the subject and there's evidence that supports a variety of beliefs and viewpoints on the subject of addiction. I don't believe there is one right answer. Everyone is different in regards to what their addiction is, the underlying choices and causes for said addiction, and the most effective way to treat it.

My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!
