I guess the weirdest thing I’ve done, is on Sundays, I go to the open houses, and go to the bathroom in these open houses, and see what pills they have in there and steal them.” .

And I said, ‘how? I thought I hid it very well. ‘ And she said, ‘we can smell it.’ But I have no right to stop, you know? And that’s what addiction is. But she is the one to reach for the most. You know, I’m really grateful to her for that.”
