No ex­cuses for drugs

“RE: Ice abuse hits fam­i­lies, ( Mt Druitt-St Marys Stan­dard, June 17).

Drug ad­dic­tion is not a dis­ease. You choose to take drugs, you don’t choose to get dis­eases.

I’m sick to death of peo­ple say­ing some peo­ple are just not strong enough not to take them (drugs).

Well, some peo­ple have been through hell and back – abused, mis­treated, hated and raped.

But they don’t take drugs to for­get. That’s a load of crap.

Peo­ple are go­ing through hell ev­ery­day and deal­ing with it with­out drugs. DIANE BRAD­BURY-DUN­MORE,

via Face­book port start­ing with “chil­dren of ice users go to school hun­gry.”

The poor sad chil­dren. Hun­gry, lost, con­fused as they see Mum or Dad, or both, killing them­selves on ice.

Yes we all need to work to­gether to find so­lu­tions. The best so­lu­tion by far is to en­cour­age and as­sist ice ad­dicts to stop tak­ing ice.

As a com­mu­nity, we need to re­port any per­son or per­sons mak­ing and selling this in­sid­i­ous drug.

All re­ports to the po­lice can be anony­mous. DAVE VIN­CENT,
