My topic is about how drug using affects the entire family, and friends, not just the one person. I am interested in this topic due to my first hand experience. I am a recovered drug addict for 2 years and I have seen first hand how it changed my friends and family forever. The pain it puts the family through might be worse than the pain the drug user goes through. This topic hits home for a lot of people. More than anyone who does not know would expect.
