Thank you for your condolences and sharing your story. It's a gamble trying drugs, because you won't know if you can become an addict and when. I'm so happy to hear you recognize the danger now and are owning your own life.

Thank you. His birthday is tomorrow. He would've been 30. I'm very sorry to hear you know this kind of pain too. Your sister will be in my thoughts as well. We need to find better ways to treat this disease.

Does your DNA determine if you'll be a drug addict? #heroin #addiction #withdraw #painpills #opiates #narcotics #drugaddiction #overdose

+masterbate23 masterbate23, you could not be further from the truth. There has been no proof or research on a DNA gene for addiction. THERE IS NONE.

My brother Cpl. Jared Paynter speaks about his PTSD. Scroll to 1:04:00.  It is short, but powerful. Please share.

Cpl. Jared Paynter was my brother. He speaks at 1:04:00. No script. He was just so eloquent, concise, and honest about his PTSD. He died March 6, 2014, because he still couldn't get the help he needed.
