I stopped doing drugs.
The hard stuff. Not asprin or whatever.
Kinda reluctant to even share this but 20 years is crazy and I'm amazed I'm still here. In fact at my 10 year high school reunion the first thing some friends would say is "man..you are still alive?" Well that says it all.

I will have the occansional hand full of beers from time to time and I enjoy wine at the casa. But that's about it. I try the Ben Franklin approach.
I'm very lucky and blessed all at the same time. :D

Sorry to break this to you, man, but I spiked that Fat Tire with pure mescaline a couple weeks ago.

But two weeks drug free isn't bad.

Now I know why I ended up on Wilkinson after I left Braz's.

It's interesting that you remember the exact date. Was there a specific event that led you to quitting?

If it was made by a pharmacist it doesn't count.

I still have flashbacks/tracers/randomness/missing time that goes on.
My oldest almost daily asks me such bizzare questions that it's almost like being high.
Example. Yesterday, while in my office, we are going over some homework stuff and she just comes out and asks: "dad, have you ever had a pet giraffe?" HUH??

And my wife can't remember anything past an hour and I can't forget anything. I'm like I'm the one who did all the drugs.

Not really a specific event per se.
Just reached a point where I had done just about everything and it wasn't floating my boat.
I was seeing a chick that more or less paid me to party with her and she had some high level connections. I could see the writing on the wall this was going to be similar to Less Than Zero and guess who Julian was going to be?
Of course all this is going on while I'm searching for deeper stuff so maybe that helped.

Yes. Now to my benefit, I wasn't rolling in the dough so that cut down on some of the access. That might have helped.
Had I been the broker guy then during that time. I shudder to think where I would be.

You think that's impressive? I plan on doing illicit drugs for the next 40 years.

Beat that.

That reminds me of a great analogy...

Keith Richards did it. Why not you?
He is basically human styrofoam
