I didn't see all of the woman's story last night, but what I did see was interesting and it proved something to me about drugs. You just never know what can happen to a person. She was doing fine until her boyfriend broke up with her. She probably was depressed and was looking for a way out of those feelings, so she sought drugs and that was that. If she hadn't been addicted, she never would have gone to Argentina.
Absolutely!! I have started watching this show more, b/c during my "hay day," I traveled to Europe a few times with drugs. Just recreational amounts, but I came so close to getting caught, and I look back and think how stupid/lucky I was that nothing bad happened. Anyway, that British girl was a great cautionary tale about how close many of us are to getting hooked -- one really bad event and bam -- you're down the wrong path very quickly.
And BTW, the "actor" was truly horrifying. How did he turn into the Incredible Hulk, tossing people over bannisters and crap. That episode of Locked Up Abroad is the only one my hubby watched with me, and he has proclaimed that it is the last. I kept trying to tell him they're all not this unbelievable and bad, but it's a lost cause now.
