    No certainly would not blame their up bringing.Drug and alcohol abuse is a way people cope with their day to day life. The person feels happy and looks at their loved ones as unhappy.We always ask why do this to themselves do they not think of the people they are hurting?Of course they won’t think they are hurting.You then ask how can u help , what is out there for me to save my loved one.really nothing is out there health advisors and doctors will say they have to ask for help themselves. Where does that leave you .yes alone trying to save a life.no one can help because they are over 18 so in your world your helpless .We then think why do they do this to themselves .professional don’t know the answer you don’t know the answer.There is a reason why they do it .it’s like we have a reason to go shopping to buy food .A reason why we walk.Life us full if reasons think yourself reading this what reason are you in the profession you are to day or the relationship.Some one addicted did not wake up and go right I need drugs or alcohol to survive to live .There is an underlying reason.Did the father if michael jackson force him to dame to force him into drug abuse.No it’s Michael reason .Get to the reason and help them be reborn.Everyone who suffers a loved one is alone time the law allowed family to save them before its to late .
