Does this mean that you must remain totally tea total? like you cannot have a beer?
First, I got into trouble. Then more trouble. Second, I admitted to myself I had a problem. Then I went and sought help. Then more help. Finally, I resolved the problem by examining myself and discovering the root cause, which was an adolescent predilection to drink and use drugs to excess to bury an even deeper sense of insecurity based in immaturity. Once I had done that I was free of the problem. The solution was to quit it all, which I did abruptly. I grew up.
I never do, or ever will do drugs again. I enjoy an occasional beer or two. Usually while mowing the lawn on hot summer days. Never in the company of other drinkers or in environments where drinking is the rule.
My life took a dramatic turn. I will never go back to living the way I did.
Others must never, ever, take even another sip. Not once. It could kill them, and they know it. I commend that kind of resolve. Never give in to the temptation.
