The drugs. And the alcohol. Most readers here are of course quite familiar with these. Of course it is no real big a deal because of course, everyone has to take drugs at some stage of their lives. And it is usual to expect that they should want to relax with a drink or two come Friday evening once the final work shift of the week has been completed.
But not to push your buttons, not to rush off to the store to stock up on your weekend supplies. And not to rush off to your nearby pharmacy store for that over the counter remedy for that lower back pain you have been experiencing.
Because this, really, is where all the problems start. If you are not too careful, at some stage in your life, you could end up lining up for one of those detox programs in washington, dc. But not to worry if you feel as though you are coming close to that blue cold turkey day.
Because so many good people will have walked through those doors, through the exit doors, fully recovered from their drug and alcohol dependency. It is like they have been given a second chance to live. It is true that everyone makes mistakes at some stage of their lives.
No one is perfect, and we are all human. But the big thing is that once those mistakes have been made that people learn from them, never to repeat them again. Of course, while all this is true, it is easier said than done. Recovering from a drug and alcohol dependency is not an overnight flight and there is no miracle cure or wonder drug attached to it.
