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

it depends, some ppl say a family history of addiction to heroin can cause the next generation to be more likely to get addicted but honestly im an addict and i have no family historyt of drug use. i became a drug addict bcuz i was just a young kid doin drugs recreationaly and came across heroin and got hooked. i had no idea it was gonna be this hard bcuz every other drug was easy to quit, and thats the problem, ppl are misinfromed. no addict ever wanted to be one

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

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.

My brother couldn't share his pain, so I'll share with you mine. Our veterans fought for us overseas. Let's fight for them at home. June is PTSD Awareness Month. #ptsd   #ptsdawareness   #jaredpaynter #usmc #veterans

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.
