Default Were they messed up on drugs / alcohol when his / her crime was committed?

Was your man addicted to something, and it got him in the place he is today?


James was a major drug user and needed to "come up" and well long story stort his addiction landed him 5 years again. Lucky we only have 2 1/2 left!

look at that statistic. unbelievable.. just really crazy... i never could imagine what it is like on drugs. i never been. but my husband after he met me met a girl who was heavily into dope she got him hooked on it. i didnt see him during those last two years only two times but he looked normal it was during the day and i saw him in staten island in 1990 on bay street fixing the harley i bought him in 1989. he was nice but our conversation lasted 5 minutes.
then it started with the robberies and him being on a 100-200 a day herion kick. she died in 1993 and he overdosed in 99 realizing what the hell was he doing he has been drug free ever since.

Yup, my husband was drunk, high on speed, and had been up for days (he was hiding his drug use from me). The great news is that he has been sober ever since the day he was arrested, and he is out now for 3 months clean and sober, and he loves it. He has a total of 19 months 10 days sobriety.

Yes, he was under the influence of at least a lot of alcohol..maybe some pot too, when crime happened...
The victim came in high as a kite, and was raging as well.

I would guess a good 60 to 70 % of the time, if not more, a harmful substance is the cause of why people are in jail/prison. No one makes any good choices when they drink/are involved w/drugs.

Yes, he was under the influence all three times he broke the law. I read some where that 75% of all crimes are committed while the person was under the influence. That is an eye-opening percentage.

My husband felt like he needed to get off coke - so he & his friend started manufacturing meth...I'm sure you an guess how it went from there.

He's been revoked twice now & will be released in 15 months. We'll see what happens next.

You know I had to respond to this thread. I told my husband for 19 years that he was going to land in jail or worse Prison. Well he is now serving 4 years in Prison. Down 4 months. His was booze. I do beleive that this man will never touch another drop in his life, but look what he had to go through to figure that out. I told him over & over & tried everything under the sun.....nothing worked. They have to figure it out for themselves. Same thing for me & cigs. I plan on beating the habit before he his released.

Good luck to you Larry's Wife!!! I hope you do put those cigarettes down for good, and when you do, please advise how I can do that too. It is a hard addiction to overcome

Welcome swtnsxy513. I hope that after his 6 year sentence he will be able to stop the addictive behavior for his own sake. An addict once told me that they knew their continued pattern would lead two places- institutionalized ( either in rehab, prison, or even possibly a mental institution) or death. Of course, rehab is the best option to stop the rest from occurring!!!!
Hang in there, for the child's sake, and let him know while you love him, you will not put up with his addictions any longer. It is called 'not enabling' him anymore. Hugs! I know this has been hell to you...

Yes, they are the reason. Both times he's been locked up was because he was hustling and stealing to come up with drug money. Now we're still waiting for sentencing.
