I've recently become aquainted with quite a few (more than I'd like) recovering addicts. Im always so surprised at how people treat people like this. Everyone is always so proud of them for quitting and happy that they're finally on the right path. And while I am completely happy for them and greatful that they're no longer on the wrong path and a danger to themselves their loved ones and society as a whole. I feel like the people who NEVER went down the 'wrong' dont get enough praise. So here's to you.....
-to everyone who never started smoking cigarettes because you knew they were addictive, disgusting, and bad for you.
-to everyone who has chosen not to drink alcohol, and for those that have chosen thankyou for being responsible in your extra-curricular activities...YOU dont drive drunk, YOU dont get drunk when your home alone with your kids...
-to everyone who never tried marijuana because you knew it was a gateway drug and would probably lead to even worse things, or turn you into a lazy butt that mooched off everyone you knew.
-To everone who realizes that their life is made possible by the people who love them and think about decisions that would affect them before they choose to do something foolish
I am proud of every person who has been faced with adversity, had things not go their way, or had terrible things happen to them or done to them (which is everyone) and not chosen an easy or lazy way out.
