    At what point do we classify someone an addict and officially in a state of substance abuse? If say a man goes to work everyday, provides for his family, handles his finances, and his other responsibilities BUT goes out every night and gets absolutely FACED? I know some of us would call that a “functioning alcoholic” but if the individual is essentially performing his role in society without incident, why do we label it anything? Some people need to medicate. Just like where is the line between junkie and medical patient? Just a doctor’s permission? Shit… My thoughts are racing. Usually a bad sign for me…
