If a wonderful woman enters a crackhead's life is it possible that the crackhead will find so much warmth, joy and happiness in his friendship with the wonderful woman that he'll easily give up crack without going to rehab cause of the warmth, joy, happiness he was getting from this wonderful woman and it made him find something to live for?

Fact #3043 of Life:


You can't change a person.

They will only change when THEY decide they want to or if they're forced to.





And don't forget that the person on drugs already currently has something to live for... drugs.

I think rehab PLUS the love from a good woman could make him sucessfully conquer his demons. There are physical parts to it that need addressing as well. I wish anyone in the situation the utmost luck.

I was thinking that some woman who the crackhead has known from the past would take pity on him and she'll do whatever she could to help the crackhead get his life together.

So do you think that crackheads became crackheads because they either had nothing to live for, no warm loving relationships or both? I think every person who gets involved with an addict thinks their love will turn that person around and magically get rid of their addiction. That's what I thought when I got involved with my ex-husband. If you get involved with an addict, someone's life will definitely change ... but it won't be the addict's.
