I would just like to add, for those who may find my short blog sweeping or judgemental – I do not see drug users as a homogenous group, neither do I see the drug before the person. I will hold my hand up and admit that yes, I am jaded, and yes, I am sick of hearing the same reasons and excuses for not changing behaviours – but please understand, the people who choose not to define themselves by their drug use, those who make effort and take opportunity when it comes, they are the people that disappear into the ether of ‘normal society’, never again to require service provision or blame other people for their misfortune. They are the people who give me job satisfaction, they are not the people that make up my bread and butter. So if I offend, I am sorry, but I only speak from my own perspective and experience.
