I met a girl in rehab. She'd been doing crack for a very long time, had AIDS, Hep C and two heart attacks. She wouldn't say her age. It was up to me to guess. I thought I was being generous in saying 38 because she looked into her forties. She was 27.
I know a 40-year-old alcoholic who looks mid-fifties.
