I'm married to an addict and the past five years that we have been married, have broght about some frightening experiences relating to drug. My brother in law and sister in law are both addicts as well, thus, it's even more difficult for one to attempt to quit, when the other two have no desire. It's been awful, and both men have escaped from court ordered rehabilitation without consequences.

Living with an addict is nightmarish for the rest of the people in the household.
