The haters will hate.
The loser's will lose.
And none of it does anything good for Brett, his family or victims affected by Brett's actions.
There are no winners here.
Buzzkill!!!

No, there are not.
People making fun of people's misfortunes and addictions is not winning.
People "clickbaiting" on ones drama is not winning.
It really is quite sad how people feed of others unfortunate situations, especially considering most commenting have never been through them.
There are peoples lives at stake here. Is that winning if lives are messed up and lost?

What did he get for the phone... maybe $300?? I'm not sure how the drug business works these days, but I can't imagine that would get you very far.
That's the point. He was at a point in his life where he was broke, lost everything, tried to get people to give him money and now apparently had to scrounge up something of value to hawk on THT.

It is very sad.

1/2 the internet is what you describe. THT is a relative safespace as far as the internet is concerned.
Most people here wish Brett well that I have seen, along with some reasonable skeptics. To think that IB would nuke every thread that could potentially upset someone somewhere is silly.
Ignoring the fact that traffic clicks are the whole reason IB exists is naive.

Blazer, I think you're right that there are no 'winners' but the thread is informative....

If I remember correctly, it was not his idea to set up the go fund me account. I think it was one of the members here that did that. Anyway, I agree that his addict behavior is very dirt bag, but I hope he recovers to the point where he can make restitution to all involved and amend his ways. I know it can be done. I've seen it many times. Everyone has their own opinion, but I hope he makes it.

Once you’ve had a family member, or multiple family members with “the disease” you learn the addict speak, and see through the addict act. Brett sang it like a songbird.

Sorry if Brett took some of you folks for a ride. A free range chicken ranging.....it’s what they do

I think I am going to take this advice and close the thread. IB does not need "clicks" at the expense of someone's well being. At one time Brett was a very valued member here. On more than one occasion he offered free legal services to members that had been caught in some bad deals. I have no idea other than what was posted on this thread as to what transpired, and I genuinely do believe that he started this thread with the intention of "coming clean" about what had transpired in his life and trying to start the road back. whether he has stayed on that road or relapsed, I have no idea. I just hope he is still surrendered himself and trying to make in one day at a time, but people speculating about it here cannot help the situation.

thread closed.
