| Woman claiming smoking addiction being harassed by man friend
The only reason that it is awful is that Judge Ross is obviously not educated about addictions. He needs to talk with Dr. Drew Pinsky and get the information before speaking his ignorance in the courtroom. Giving up smoking has been aligned to giving up heroine. In addition, the addictive personality isn't a choice, it is brain chemistry. After detoxing, which can take up to 2 years+ to detox the brain, thenhealth ier choices can be made one day at a time. Judge Ross literally castigated a woman who was an addict as if she had a choice to "walk on the wild side" or not. She is so toxic that making a healthy choice isn't something she is capable of doing.
I like Judge Ross and I was sad to see him talking about a subject about which he is obviously ignorant. Since I am 34 years sober from cigarettes, booze, and drugs, I know about which I speak. Judge Ross, talk with Dr. Pinsky before ruling on any other cases of addition. Thank you.
