‘A horrible, lonely life’: Woman’s final message about drug addiction
SEATTLE -- It's one woman's final message about the drug and alcohol addiction that eventually took her life. After spending 25 years in a fierce battle against substance abuse, Elizabeth Sleasman, of Bellingham, left this world with a warning to others: "If you haven’t started -- don’t. If you have, quit NOW. Your drinking/drug using friends are not really friends, they will steal from you, use you, and will do anything to get another “fix” -- just like me."
