I never said that she should have known she would have become addicted. I stated that some people dont know how to exercise restraint. It's a pretty safe bet to say that when it comes to narcotics, most of them are known to do terrible things to the human body. For her to have developed a dependency on the drug, she needed to have taken it more than once. When you take abuse drugs or alcohol, you know full well the consequences you are exposing yourself to. Building up to an eventual dependency on these drugs is something that can be prevented.
I dont want to get all "just say no" b/c i believe people have the right to do to their bodies what they wish, but if you cant handle the worst possible outcome of you taking something that can literally FUCK YOUR LIFE UP, then dont take the drug.
