If it changes fundamentally how your thinking and emotional processes function, at some point “old you” is gone. “new you” is wrapped up in something that has a common pattern for a reason: it’s following the pattern the drug (and/or possibly the lifestyles that go with it) bring you to. So, who’s dying? Old you died once you got on that pattern. New you can take you down a road old you never would have. So, I dunno.

It’s not that old you can’t be resurrected. Lots of time and patience by others can help. Often “new new you” (post addiction) finds religion or ideology (OMG DID YOU GUYS EVER HEAR OF JORDAN PETERSON? YOU SHOULD REALLY CHECK HIM OUT) is off the the old addiction but onto a new one that won’t lead to physical suicide (although DO YOU ACCEPT JESUS AS YOUR PERSONAL LORD AND SAVIOR? can lead to many lost friends).
