Why is it that many drug addicts are smart?

Like high intelligence, have a BA or MA esp from a good college if not alone just did well in school, had a good work history at some point, and just end up snorting coke and meth and dropping a lot of acid or smoking too much pot/too much binge drinking

    Intelligence and addiction aren't related.

    Boredom is one possibility, lack of life focus is another. High achievers sometimes become lost after finishing formal education.
