First thing, there is no such thing as a better drug addict.
One of the problems with being a drug addict is that even when they realize they are hurting other people and acting out in ways they don’t want to, they can’t stop. Even those addicts who afterward feel very badly about how they behaved cannot stop the next time. * That is what drugs do: they control.
* Drugs invade a person’s mind and many times, their conscience. As much as an individual may want to change their behavior, they are not going to be able to do it while under the influence of the drugs. Drugs completely change people and usually not for the better. *An individual can become a better person, but not a better drug addict.
* The only way to improve is to quit the drug completely. Quitting the drug and getting it out of the system is the only way to improve oneself. All of the good intentions in the world fly out the window when the drug is consumed. The drug addict will continue to hurt their own lives and hurt the people they love. A drug addict who is feeling remorse is probably ready for rehabilitation. That remorse is a good sign. It means the individual has not lost sight of their former self and that they still have good conscience.
* The way to be a better drug addict is to become a former drug addict.
Remorse and guilt are such good signs. They are signs that the addict is ready to work through their problems and give a try at giving up drug addiction. They realize they are hurting themselves and others. This is a perfect time to get into rehab. No one can be a better drug addict because the drugs control the individual and not the other way around.
People who wonder how to become a better drug addict realize that the way they are behaving is wrong and hurtful. Once a person realizes that, it makes giving the drug up easier. The person is able to admit that their actions hurt other people. Many addicts have to work for a long time to come to that realization.
* * * Do what your mind and conscience are telling you to do, and get help for the drug addiction.* * *
