Would it change your perception about a person, if you come to know that he/she was a former drug addict?

It won't. It won't even affect my attitude towards the person. I like to base my perceptions about a person on my personal and actual interaction with that particular person.

Yes it would, but not in a negative way. I have dealt with many addictions and been around people who have as well. I see the person who ovecomes their addictions as a strong willed person who sees that they cn change and improve. I have a great deal of respect for those who have overcome these battles in their lives, and they are the people I like to surround myself with.

It would make a difference depending on the behavior that they were showing previously.
