You can also get yelled at for getting an STD even though you put on two condoms because you thought "hey, double the insurance." But they both broke and now your balls itch.
@Martian Manhunter , putting on two condoms is what causes both to break. Using only one is actually safer.
@Martian Manhunter , dude, that's why you gotta put 3 on. That way if 2 break, you still have that third one. (Yeah, actually don't do this. I'm sure y'all know that but here's a disclaimer anyway.)
"D@mnit Otto, you're an alcoholic"....."D@mnit Otto, you have lupus".
I had a conversation with my friend who is an addict about something similar. I told him it's like you're a cancer patient and I can't be mad at you for having cancer but I can be mad you're not getting treatment.
Unlike (nearly all) other medical conditions, the alcoholic deserves the grief because it is ultimately the result of voluntary actions. The addict chooses to consume the intoxicant, and can choose not to.
I completely understand and agree that it is far more complicated involving complex psychological aspects and (under a progressed addiction) physical issues.
In the end, all of the treatment and counseling comes down to one specific thing: choose to use it, or choose not to.
@JDPhi, it also has the most peer pressure (bullying) dragging those who are genetically susceptible past the point of depressive dependence. Even with drunk driving laws as they are, people who drink denigrate those who don't. Society deserves the grief as much as the individual too often in my opinion.
You can also get yelled at for having, like, any mental illness because don't understand them and what they do.
