My brother has been using crack for about 5 or 6 years. He is barely recognizable as the same personality that he used to be. It seems like the crack has destroyed his brain. If he stops using will he go back to being the person he used to be or is the crack damage forever?

1. No one is the same person they were 5 or 6 years ago.

2. There's a chance that if he stops using he will be a wiser and stronger and more grateful person than he ever was. His stopping may be the greatest challenge he has ever faced in his life. If he succeeds and remains sober he will be someone to admire and his strength will an inspiration to many people...including you.
