Yes, several days worth of drinking and smoking dope. All it cost him was the rest of his life.

My son is an alcoholic and got his 4th DWI because of it. When it got to the point the alcohol wasn't enough he used meth or whatever he could find.

I am so sorry to hear that Katybee. I hope and pray this time he will want to change for his own sake. A life in and out of prison is horrid, and heaven forbid if he hit someone while driving under the influence!!!! I wish you all the best!!!!!!!!!

I've posted this over & over but wanted to tell it again. Yes....my husband was drunker than a skunk. Clean record up to this point in his life & he was 46. But he had always been LUCKY! This time it got him 4 years. With God willing however, I beleive deep down in my heart, that this man will never ever take another drink in his life. We are divorced right now, but plan on marrying him again when he is a free man and starting all over fresh. Throwing all old bad memories away to never remember again.

Sure was....but in the end he was considered dealer and not a user.

Crap if you ask me....the using is was stemmed to his selling, to support his habbit and his life style.

the only reason he is in this time is because he did not see his parole officer and moved so broke parole and now he will serve out.

My friend was on drugs when his crimes were committed. He was selling them to pay for his own addiction and got caught. I think that his time in jail is a shame but at the same time it got him away from them and I pray that it will keep him off of them when he returns home in a couple of years.
I do know that rehab offers a great amount of help. My husband (who has never been incarcerated..thank goodness) was on any kind of drug he could find for many years. Finally it brought him to the point of disaster....that is losing me and his kids. He took it to heart when I said get help or I will leave. I know that many people do not like the methadone clinics that have been placed throughout many states. However with our experience it has worked out for the best. I have to admit that the drug is as addictive as the others yet he doesn't want the other drugs therefore it makes his attitude better and he has also gotten a job and accepted his responsibilities as a husband and a father. We are 2 years into the treatment program and for a lifetime user that is doing pretty good. Hopefully within another year the treatment will be over and he will be completely drug free. I hope that all people that are addicted to things realize that it is no different than smiking cigarettes or drinking. Although the bad behavior might not be evident we are still addicted to those things therefore we can relate to the affects of addiction.

Chuy is an alcoholic although he doesnt think so but
I've lived with one in the past and I know that's what he is!
He thinks because he can give up drinking sometimes that
doesnt make him an alcoholic, but everytime he gets drunk he
cant control his emotions and his emotions tend to be one's
that make his do stupid things and he was drinking the night
that this happened and he was drinking the night that he got
shot, you think that he would have learned when he got shot
to stop drinking but he didnt now he's doing 9-30 years in
prison because of his drinking and to be honest I think what's
next Death from Drinking because if he cant get some kind
of control on it than I couldnt see it leading to anything else!

We ended it over his addictions, well actually he did me a favor when he realized he was slipping back into old patterns more and more he broke up with me and pretty much fell off the planet.Im greatful actually now, but back then I was hurt and confused... Started partying HARD seeing some other chic and well they were already having issues cause he called me all upset a couple weeks before just to talk. Enough time had passed where I wasnt too pissed off anymore and I could talk to him. I told him he needed to get help, talk to somebody less emotionally involved because I couldnt be objective, or get into rehab do something..... Well he didnt and I didnt hear from him for a couple weeks in July so I did a search on the net and sure enough found him saw that he was in custody but no info he was already out on parole. When he got sentenced and he was finally somewhere I could write I did. Turns out the party girl and him got into fight he took her truck,ran from the cops, smushed her truck.... And of course he was drunk at the time. I hope this time he gets the help he needs, and recognizes patterns of behavior. Im being the supportive friend I dont want to be his g/f cause I dont believe thats the right decision for either of us but I dont think he should go thru all this alone.

Yes, my friend was back on heroin again after being clean for 8 years. Well he said he was clean, but who really knows. The lies and the stealing from me and my kids started once he started using again. At first I really couldn't tell, until he overdosed and I found him on the bathroom floor. And then things got real bad. I finally had to let him go, I couldn't take it anymore. The road he was going down was not a road I wanted to travel. Now he is doing another 7 years for bankrobbery. He swears he is clean again, and he won't ever touch the stuff again, but he said all that before.... I just keep praying for him and hope once he is out he will be able to make it on the outside without drugs.

I am not going to say that drugs made him do it...he has stupid friends too but, yes he was high. You tell a man to quit smoking or quit anything for their own good and they say ok...then the next week you get a call saying "you have a collect call from _________ a inmate at such a place".

No drugs did not make him commit his crime, maybe it would have been more understandable if he was high???

Josh was three times over the legal limit when he did his crime. I know that he was headed to alcoholism. I don't know if he was there yet but he was on his way. Now he may spend the rest of his life in prison for his alcohol. He'll never even smell the stuff again the way he hates what he's done. I guess if it were me then I would feel the same way. It's his first DUI and now he may never see his boys again.
