I originally saw a youtube video of this girl, Allison with the "I'm walking on sunshine" song playing in the background. I automatically thought it was fake and funny, until I watched more and I finally saw the full episode on tv. I was shocked that someone could get hooked on something like this and survive. She looked TERRIBLE. This is the closest video I could find on youtube to sum up this episode. I even tryied going to their site to try to find the whole episode, but they didn't have it. The second clip is from their website. It shows her sober and she looks great! I really wanted to share this video clip because I think it went well with additions.
Although my uncle is not addicted to the same thing as Allison was, it reminds me of him. When he was younger he went into the army and got into drugs. For many many years he would do anything to get money to buy drugs. My family and I took him in a twice to help him get away from it all, his own little rehab center. The first time living with us, my dad bought him a little pick-up truck to get from job to job. When we came home one day we found the truck gone and all of my dads tools gone. He stole them to sell them for drug money. That wasn't the first time he stole from his family. A year or two later we took him back and he's been with us ever since. He has been clean, from what I know of. He is doing much better. What would he have done if my family and I didn't take him in?
