Jailed addict needs release from his low self-esteem
DEAR ABBY: I’m 23 years old and currently in the county jail. I’m gay and also an addict, having battled a heroin addiction for the past five years.
I managed to stay clean for almost two years. During that time I enrolled in college, got engaged, regained the respect of my family and started to have a normal life. Things were going very well for me, and then I relapsed. I threw everything away.
