Don't blame my parents for my £120 a day cocaine addiction.

Don't blame my parents for my £120 a day cocaine addiction.
JVS meets Emma from Stevenage and her sister Rebecca.  They grew up in a good home with good parents who had highly paid jobs and were extremely disciplined. How then did Emma end up with a £120 a day cocaine habit, stealing from friends, family and her employer? 
How did she end up so aggressive her sister would hide in a cupboard and how did she damage her nose so badly she needed an operation?
