Drugs – Unlike Bill Clinton, I am not going to say that I smoked but did not inhale. I was a student, I was in Res. Life was good.
BUT then I grew up.
My younger brother is in Pollsmoor prison because of his dependency on drugs. So I know first-hand what drugs can do to a person. I think the drugs killed him years ago. His body is somehow holding on and I don’t know the person who is inhabiting his body at the moment but it is definitely not my brother.
Alcohol – I was a student. I was in Res. Life was good. BUT I grew up and had a child . . . Therefore I still drink – for my nerve.
I have several alcoholics in my extended family. Some of them are recovering while others refuse to admit they have a problem.
So I guess what I am trying to say is, I stay away from drugs . . . it’s just not worth it. And when it comes to alcohol, I try to remember the “in moderation” bit.
