ADDICTION \\ topic 2
WHO'S IN CONTROL?
In the absence of personal power, we tend to be overcome with all sorts of addictions and I’ve been no exception. Smoking, I was addicted from when I was 18 - 30. Alcohol, yes also. I was engulfed by alcohol from the age of 18 - 50. Drugs, yes cocaine blew my mind and I was into it when we had the band. Caffeine, a simple drug that had overtaken me and caused health issues. Sugar in the form of Sour Patch Kids, Swedish Fish and Gummy Bears. I use to devour a large bag at night while watching TV.
At this writing, I’m clean, sober, totally straight and in control of my body. This fact gives me a great sense of personal power and confidence. I’m 67 years old, weigh 150 lbs and can run a mile in nearly 6 minutes. No addictions in my life. I’m in control now, but it wasn’t always that way.
