There is no greater satisfaction than helping someone who needs help.
Giving to charity, giving in a blood drive, these are things that are important and can lead to helping someone in a life-changing way. So can helping someone who is addicted to crack.
A crack addict is in danger of literally killing himself.
A crack addict is in danger of literally killing himself. He cannot logically think, instead he is completely under the spell of his addiction and constantly needs a fix. He does not care who it hurts, not intentionally, but because it has taken over every part of his senses. * Crack is a horrible addiction, it literally destroys people.
* A crack addict would steal and not think twice about it. So do you walk away, do you give up? Or do you take the matter in hand and realize that underneath that addiction is a person who once dreamed of being an artist or having a family, a person who once desired to own a lake cabin, a person who would have (and did) give the shirt off his back many times for a homeless person before succumbing to crack addiction.
” People die every day from drug overdoses and from physical problems that are a result of addiction. If you know someone who is a crack addict, the most important thing you can do is help him or her to seek help. The satisfaction you could get from that, could mean wonders. ”
* It is that way also for those who decide to go into drug counseling.
Sometimes it is a personal experience involving a family member, sometimes even their own experience as an addict. The satisfaction a person gets from helping a crack addict is unlike any. It is the epitome of customer service. You enjoy holding the door open for a person who has their hands full leaving a store, right? Imagine helping someone to change his life, to save his life as he stops using the drug that is sure to one day kill him.
” There is no greater satisfaction in life than helping to save someone else’s and helping someone who is a crack addict is definitely in that category. ”
* If you think you might feel like that is your calling, do some research.
Talk to a school counselor, talk to counselors at a treatment center. Your heart is in the right place and you would not only get satisfaction out of helping crack addicts, you would be getting and giving a gift unlike any you have ever experienced.
