Description of this Heartbreak

Addiction is the fact or condition of being addicted to a particular thing. Addiction is unpredictable and can happen at any moment. Many addicts suffer from disorders which means they have an addiction with at least one other mental condition. People who are in recovery tend to have a relapse.


Why does this break your heart?


Addiction breaks our hearts because it can turn a person’s life around in a matter of days. Addiction can lead positive people down the wrong path and damage their life. Addiction also causes bright people with a bright future to become depressed and furious because all they want is what they are addicted to. Addiction can break a family down even if only one family member is addicted. Once you are addicted you might do anything and could harm your family in many different ways including; physically and mentally.

-Hunter

Addiction is very heartbreaking, and it takes over you! it breaks my heart because you had goals and family who loved you and you thought you were going to success, but not anymore...the drug that you are into and taking...it controls you now and makes you feel weird and totally different. We all have an addiction, but the addiction that people are in are not very good and very bad for your body and it affects your loved ones and everybody around you.

-Audra

It breaks my heart due to the fact it hurts millions of people in the US alone which affects them each day. Their mind is dependent on this stuff which is most of the time illegal and/or dangerous to their health. The fact that almost 20 million people are addicted to marijuana alone is enough to know that the problem has to be fixed. And if we fix this by doing something to make these drugs less addicting or safer, then we can fix a major problem in the world.

-Austin

Addiction breaks my heart because it's sad how somebody's life can change over one addiction. Addiction can change somebody's life in a matter of days. Once you become addicted it's hard to stop, but you can if you try too you just have to believe that you can. When you become addicted it doesn't only affect your life, it affects everyone around you.

- Jacob


Addiction breaks my heart because so many people don't notice they are addicted to anything until they try to stop, then they give up thinking they will never change. We want people to know that there's always a solution to these problems and that you can change and help others break the chains to addiction, don't let it hold you back.


-Ara


Addiction breaks my heart because it forces you to sit and watch the people you love destroy their lives and bring it to an end. People also try to avoid that they really have an addiction and try to put it off after you try so hard to help them. Addiction not only affects the person that's addicted but everyone around them, especially if it is something about smoking or gambling.

-Tyler


Addiction break my heart because so many people's lives are ruined because of this. It hurts you and the people that love you. You have to make the right decisions in life, and to do that you must think about your decisions.

-David‍

Addiction is heartbreaking to me because it destroys people's lives who have a bright future. Addiction can cause a family's relationship to dissolve and fall apart. It can lead young adults down a dark path of misery and depression until they overcome their addiction. It really breaks my heart to see great people being torn apart over an addiction and to see their lives turn up side down.

- Morgan

Addiction is a bad thing if you start smoking, taking drugs that are illegal, over the counter, and prescription. So if you start, the first thing you need to do to stop is admitting that you want to quit. If you have started, you have just opened up a window to a cancer world if you do these things.

- JDawg

Addiction is a terrible habit that people can't stop doing. Addiction hurts people and it also breaks a lot of hearts. In fact, it could cause family disruption. We want to help people make the right decision with their life. Addiction is a terrible thing so we have to put a stop to this.

-Hector
