I have a strange reaction to this. One the one hand, it is sad. Sad that this 60 year old man turns to heroin for relief/escape. Sad that it’s his reality. He’s a junkie.
On the other hand, I don’t have much sympathy. If you’re using heroin, you know you have a problem. Once you go down that road, it’s only a matter of time until it catches up with you. I really have little to no sympathy for him. Billy’s father or not.
