Alice in Wonderland

*Drugs and Alcohol*

They are escape, numbing, excitment, oblivion, self-destruction,
rebellion, all of the above. I loved drinking and smoking, but my body
can't really take it anymore. Probably for the best. I love having fun
and being wild, and numbing in a way that made me feel alive at the
same time. I did do stupid stuff though, and put myself in danger. I
am extremely lucky that I was able to quit when I wanted to, and that
I never shot up heroin even though I was in the Seattle punk scene. I
saw what addiction does to people- it can take your free will away
from you, your identity, your life. It's too high of a price to
pay for escape from yourself.
