This is an opinionated question because, well, some people are hell bent in believing so, but the open-minded (and logical) know that people can stop being addicted. Sure, it takes a while, and it's living hell, especially with heroin and prescription pills, but you eventually get off of it and forget about it, becoming a better person.
But there is a definite difference between an addict who is currently "using" his / her drug of choice and a "recovering" addict.
(And a "dry" drunk is not in a good place.)
Wrong wrong wrong ihave seen many people recover from alcohol and drugs including myself. Over 17 yrs sober. You have to change friends places you go and everything. Their is alot of people that are sober try a aa meeting or na some dont even go to meetings they have a hobby.
Sorry, but I had to laugh.
