You are a functioning heroin addict. It takes guts to admit that. However, you do not belong anywhere near a law school until you are clean...for a long time...and can identify WHY you were an addict in the first place. Right now, law school should not even be a consideration for you. Period.
I know why, it's because I'm bipolar and have rapid cycling. Like I said, school's about the only thing that kept things together. If you haven't been a heavy drug user, it's not really right to tell people who are more experienced what they are and aren't capable of while on drugs. I don't go around giving marriage advise to people who are married. People are getting off topic. The questions I have are in regards to discloser, and how to disclose this. If I can't do law school, I can leave. I've worked hard to get in, and I think it's bizarre for a person who has no experience, first hand, with heroin addiction, to tell someone who has extensive drug experience what you just stated. I'm not pissed or anything, and I don't take it personal at all, I can understand why someone would think that. But you may want to read up on heroin addiction, read some ethnography's, to better understand what functioning addiction is.
You're right. I have no first hand experience with heroin addiction. However, in regard to disclosure and addendums...there's a big difference in disclosing you HAD a problem and kicked it. Rationalizing that you are a functioning heroin addict is something else. I am not passing judgement. I have sincere concern for your health. You seem like a sharp kid. Get yourself some help before this thing consumes you. Law school, IMHO, is not the answer just yet.
