Day 20: My views on drugs and alcohol
In moderation, alcohol is a way to relax after a long day
In excess, alcohol can make a good situation bad and a bad situation even worse.
I partake in alcohol- mostly in moderation- but I have been know to take it to an extreme.
I don't ever NEED it...but it does help to take the edge off a really bad day.
I will admit that I have smoked pot- it doesn't really do anything for me. If I were to ever get addicted to something it would be prescription pain pills- but I know when enough is enough. I have never tried anything else. Never had a reason to. Don't think I want to ever try anything- i really don't like being out of control- so that kinda defeats the purpose of drugs.
I have known people who have gotten really messed up on all of the above- this is an addiction. I am addicted to nicotine- I have cut back- I am down to a couple of cigarettes most days- it should be so easy to just quit but it's not. Anything taken to extremes will have detrimental effects.
