It Is Wrong to Go to the Funeral of a Girl That I Helped Get Addicted to Drugs? Here’s How People Responded.

I’m gonna say this right off the bat, and this is only my opinion: I’ve dealt with addicts before, and sometimes I think they can be a little bit clueless about how their past actions have affected the people around them, even after they’ve gotten clean and sober.

And that seems to be the case with this person who took to Reddit’s “Am I the *sshole?” page to ask a very interesting question…

Read on to see what happened.

AITA for wanting to go to the funeral of a girl that I helped get addicted to drugs?

“I’m 26 and clean from heroin for 3 years.

I was also a piece of sh*t and used to deal for a while.

I managed to get with a beautiful girl named Marcy when I first started getting into the thick of things. She knew who I was but she said she loved me.

I will regret this for the rest of my life, but I was the person who shot up Marcy for the first time. After that, there was no stopping her. She stuck around with me, probably because I was her dealer more than anything, but then I got clean and never saw her again for a long time.

A year ago she reached out to me on Facebook and told me that she had been clean for a few months and she said that she didn’t hate me for what happened and she hoped I was still clean.

Last week I got a call from my sister who told me that she saw on Facebook that Marcy had OD’d and there was a funeral service this upcoming Thursday.

I immediately just burst into tears because I hoped that this would never happen and I feel so much guilt over it.

I want to go to the funeral service for her but I’m afraid that my presence would be unwanted. At the most I would just slip in the back, pay my respects and leave. I need to do this for myself.

AITA for wanting to go?”
