Jim's definatly was drugs. He had been using them since he was 16. He was abused as a child mentally and physically. His sisters think thats why he ended up choosing the path he did. He was locked up in jail twice and got out. The last time he got caught he ended up in prison for almost four yrs. I've know him and his family for 24 yrs now. I never did use drugs period. I never thought I would end up with someone that had or was using them. I told him I wouldn't stay with him unless he quit totally. I'm sticking to my word to. They think they are invincable when they are druged up, but look where it lands them in the end.

This sound's very like my ex-boyfriend and me. He went from foster home to foster home after his dad died (he was an alcoholic who was robbed and murdered on the street).

Now the police are looking for him again.

My husband was drunk when he got arrested but he was an drug user before that and he stopped that and started drinking. He know realizes that he can not handle that either. He had to learn a hard lesson and a lesson he has learned. He will be spending a trip total of 19 months for one day of fun.

yes.

my cousins baby daddy JON who is currently doing a 3 yr sentence was on all sorts of pills. & he only committed these crimes while under the influence. he has a beautiful 4 yr old daughter that he hasnt seen in almost 2 yrs. ITS A SHAME. he said when he gets out he's turning his life around. I HOPE SO. he has been in and out of juvenile hall growing up & its sad that our system doesnt handle these cases better; then maybe our guys/girls wouldnt be in this situation. locking them up doesnt stop their drug use it just prevents them from getting to it NOW, but whats gonna change when theyget out? we're trying to work out a deal to maybe letting him do his last 6 months ina rehab? IDK any help would be appreciated

He (we) commited the crimes to get more money for drugs (crack). That crap gets a death grip on your soul and won't let go.... He wouldn't stay off of it for more than 2 days at a time, tops. And on those days, he would sleep all day.

My dad was on drugs (so he says) when he commits his crimes. He claims to have been on speed and coke but i don't know how to accept this well because he used to watch my daughter while i worked and went to the gym (sometimes soon after he wandered in the house-i knew he stole...didn't know he was on drugs) and i am wondering if something (probably not-but it is the betrayl of trust that makes me question it) ever happened to my daughter.

My sperm donor was liquored up when he committed the crime he was detained for 2 years for (he ended up getting aquitted at trial-but they took it to the 11th hour) and from what i understand and know has at least been drunk when he committed his crimes.

My current dude is in jail illegally, but he was on prescription meds after being shot when he was arrested. He wasn't committing any crimes though. In the past i am not sure about. I'll ask later and get back to you. Wow! Never even thought to ask.

I will say in general they are part of the reason but not the sole reason. In the case of my ex i know that liquor and weed and stuff always made him feel bolder. Maybe that is the case for other as well.

My son is in prison now for the 3rd time on drug related charges and parole violation. Yes, he did a lot of stupid things while on drugs, but could never see it for himself.

Mine had had a few beers, but not enough to mess up his judgement as much as he did that night. I wish I could blame it on something, other than him....

mine has a heroin problem too. He stayed clean almost 2 years this last time. Is your man doing methadone treatment, or just cold turkey? I've seen mine relapse multiple times doing cold turkey and I really want him to do the methadone treatment if he comes home and relapses this time. from what I've read, methadone hits alot of the same brain receptors as heroin, but a person can still function, work, have relationships, etc.

My fiancee was very strung out on drugs when he got incarcerated. As much as I hate him being locked up away from me, I honestly believe that him being arrested saved his life. He was on the way down a long, hard path of drugs and violence.

I didn't vote he doesn't blame the alcohol or pot he had used so I can't say that was the reason, but I can say he was under the influence at the time. He done it he is guilty he ain't gonna blame it on anything but himself, I don't believe he was so messed up he didn't know what he was doing. It may of given him some I don't care feelings, so he didn't chicken out, but he still made the choice. (a really dumb, bad bad bad choice)

Getting into trouble as the result of an addiction or drug use can be the wakeup call some people need to do something about it. It's the harshest of harsh lessons, but some of us have thick skulls and need to run into a brick wall (sometimes more than once) before we figure out that we can indeed do something better with our lives.

I answered earlier in the thread for my ex - yes, DUI would certainly be due to alcohol.

Now for my pen-pal, yes, he was on meth and paranoid....carried a gun as a result.....felon in possesion of a firearm has him in this time.
