And I'm sick of hearing dumbasses say "Ugh that's what happens when you make bad decisions. It's a matter of having no self-control, it's not an illness." and other stupid crap.

I swear we need to educate people about addictions. I bet none of these people would say anything like that if they had a loved one who was going through that. No matter what you think, it's awful to have someone you care about go through that.

Why? Why do people say stuff like this?
