By comparing the experience off interaction in a life world with a drug habit and a life world without a drug habit you might find how they differ. We asked four former drug abusers in four semi structured interviews to describe their experiences off interaction under these two circumstances. The difference between the two life worlds when it comes to interaction is that in the drug abusing life world our informants describe that communicative action has to stand back for a more goal oriented action. In the drug free life world, communicative action on the other hand is experienced as the most important action. The difference is about wether interaction is goal oriented or oriented at understanding. The extra weight the system gets by adding the burden off financing the drug consumption makes the invasion of the life world by the system so intense that almost all communicative action stops. By doing so personal growing, renewing of cultural knowing and establishing of personal development is getting difficult.
