I look back on all the time spent in bars and money spent at liquor stores and can see the utter waste of it all. I see what such a habit does to people, relationships, and the like. It’s all such a waste and all so meaningless. What did I ever hope to gain from such stupidity. I look around and see the people sucked into the same trap. I don’t envy them. Have any of us stopped to think about what we are throwing our lives away on? What are we attempting to bury? What degree of regret are we trying to snuff out? I had a realization of this earlier today. I won’t go into detail, but it made me realize that I have no future in supporting such a stupid habit. Things are going very well for me and I have no intention of throwtit all away. All I can say is I don’t want whatever addiction claims to offer.
