  1. It’s the same story that is destroying families, friends, and your cities. Once in jail, they either cry or become hardened. Once they are released, they go right back to the drugs for a never ending round of destruction. In no time, their bodies begin to break down faster than their chronological age. A 25 y/o women suddenly looks like a 50 y/o. Same with the men. Years spent in and out of jail, and eventually prison. Their parents and siblings gives up on them, as they have ran out of money given to lawyers and support for their habits. While incarcerated, they get sick. Because of decreased fundings for medical expenses, it takes a long while before they are diagnosed with various cancers, that are more common for those in their 70’s and older. With the expected Judge’s sympathy, the terminally ill incarcerated inmate will either die on the cold and dirty corner of their cell, or they get an early release to die at home, and only if they still have a family to look after them. Most die in the streets. The life of any addict,, be it sex, tobacco, meth, heroin, coke, alcohol, Xanax, oxycodone, you name it, is an exchange for an early, painful, and lonely death. I’ve seen it all, in the context of my occupation. I understand human weakness, but I also understand people voluntarily make bad choices, even when they know the adverse risk to themselves and to those who love them. What is most disturbing to me, is so many of these end of life addicts never ask God for forgiveness for their sins. Nor do they cry out for Him. The biggest sin is not honoring “The Lord Our God.” These addicts fail to please God by failing to respect their own body and lives .Hence, they could not significantly help their fellow being. Life is a gift. Wasting ones life may not allow one to live in eternal peace. This is why we should never give up on praying for people, such as these, even if we don’t know who they are, They are still our brothers and sisters, in christ.
