My uncle died.
The service is tomorrow and I am not going.
Drugs cause many problems. I know they do. But they do not cause all problems.
When I smoked, my mom would blame everything on the cigarettes. If I stubbed my toe, it was because I smoked.
My uncle was an IV drug user. But that is not what killed him. He had a brain tumor. The cancer was most likely not caused by the drugs he injected. As far as I am aware, Ted Kennedy wasn't a junkie. But none of this matters. Even if, and I am not suggesting that this is the case, he had only shot up once, it would be one too many times for my mom. For the remainder of his short life he was just a junkie.
