130 Americans die every day from opioid overdoses. Thomas has some Artie Lange level luck to still be going.

The good thing is, if a junkie doesn't use for a while, a dose they could handle in their past could kill them if they go back. Best case scenario is he gets arrested for petty shoplifting, can't make bail, so has to go through an excruciating detox in his cell.

Months later, he is free on probation, shoots up again and dies next to a toilet.
