  1. As mentioned in the Big Chill, most people can't get through a day without a two or three big juicy rationalizations :-(

    1. And when our culture supports such rationalizations it can be a disaster.

  2. So good! Glad you insist on calling substance abuse what it is. I come from a long line of family members who abused alcohol- it isn't a "party" at all- it is just a big mess! Giving drug and/ or alcohol addiction & abuse a fun-sounding name doesn't do anyone any favors. Keep doing the good work, Averyl!!

    1. Thank you for your support, Andrea. Clearly you are a survivor. I'm sorry to hear you had to deal with that!
