Kansas City Woman Fights Addiction, Helps Others And Becomes Subject Of New Film

By the time Bobbi Jo Reed dropped out of high school at 16, she'd already been an alcoholic for four years, broken her back in a driving accident involving alcohol, and gotten an abortion following a rape. Her parents, a police officer and homemaker in Kansas City, Kansas, had lost control of their daughter, and she decided to strike out on her own.

I don’t see what the big deal is. I have used heroin daily and drank at least a full 750ml bottle of whiskey daily for over 20 years. Sometimes more than once a day more heroin and sometimes more than one bottle of whiskey. I also smoke weed 3 or 4 times daily. I have never struggled with addiction issues.

Sounds like Bobbi Jo was a slut.

What makes her different from other sluts that she deserves a documentary ?

I bet Bobbi Jo blames Trump for making her into a whore back in the 1980's.

I have never had 1 drink or used any drugs in my 50 years of life. And I grew up in a house where I was abused, sometimes abandouned at times, and when out driving around town with my parents was shown tall buildings which they said they were going to throw me off. And my Mother told me just once she loved me, as she was on her death bed, as if that might help her somehow in the place she was going in the afterlife.

I guess some people just aren't very strong when it comes to being tempted by addictions.
