You also didn't answer the questions - how fat, how thin, how much alcohol, how much MJ, how much cocaine, how much heroin before you get deported to this island?
As a medical professional, you likely have seen your fair share of people who have damaged themselves and are wanting to find a way back. There are folks here who don't believe that people can ever deal with addiction issues. They don't have your insight or experience.
If people go to the bottom of the web page posted, they will see the intent of putting the pictures up. I've encountered my fair share of addicts in my work and many of them have made it back and lead productive lives. There are those who don't make it back, but we shouldn't abandon the rest.
As for your question, you aren't the one running and hiding.
