Cleanup time

I was in the wrong crowd and nearly lost myself. I got mixed up with a lot of stupid people who were all about alcohol, drugs and partying. My life headed into a downward spiral. I’m way too old for the party lifestyle so I simply gave it up. Partying is something you do when you’re in high school and there comes a time when you need to grow up and get your head straight. My head has become a lot more clear since I’ve been clean and sober. I can’t stress enough just how awesome it feels to finally get rid of all the useless garbage that could have ruined my life. I lost a lot of weight, got back into my fitness and have been eating healthier foods. Alcohol and drugs have nothing to offer. Life is too short to be surrounded by leeching scumbags or fill your body with poison. Don’t follow the herd of sheep to the edge of a cliff. You are who you hangout with.

Any advice on how to get clean and sober? Rehab hasn't helped so far.

I'm super proud of you. Thats awesome that you broke away from that. I know so many people in thier 50's still doing this and it's sad to be honest. Who wants to hang out with people that are high all the time.

I have to say that your statement "You are who you hangout with." is what I've been saying for years, it's so true!

Partying should happen when you're an adult not in high school.
And just because you couldn't consume alcohol and other drugs in a responsible way doesn't mean others can't as well.

Great post

Alcohol and drugs...

... have a lot to offer, the problem is that not everyone can use them responsibly, just like how not everyone can drive a car or fly an aeroplane. IF you are better off without them, good! But lots of people, I mean, whiskey is basically necessary, how can you live without whiskey??
