My feelings are really, really clear on this. My parents detox people who are addicted to drugs and alcohol for a living. I grew up around addicts; I worked for my parents company for a bit; I've had friends do drugs.

I don't tolerate it in my life. Period. I will walk away from someone if they use anything outside of pot (and it took me a long time to accept even pot in my life). I've seen too many people destroyed because of alcohol and drugs; seen too many families torn apart.

Two of my aunts have drug abuse problems, and I've seen how it affects my family and their family. I know, logically, that addiction is a disease. And I have SO MUCH respect for people who are clean, who are fighting to stay clean, and taking it one day at a time. But my aunts aren't there, and haven't ever really been there.

This is my one hard line. It makes me sound like a bitch, and I'm fine with that characterization. I can't have drugs/alcohol in my life. I barely drink, I've only smoked up twice, and I haven't ever touched anything harder. And I won't.

If you disagree with this, fine. Please defriend me or let me know so I can defriend you. I'm that fucking serious about this. I won't even read fic that casually mentions drugs/alcohol. Because it squicks me/touches me/moves me that deeply.

That is all.
