[quote] I used to know a woman who was in AA and went to weekly meetings, and she was so proud of herself for not drinking anymore, yet she was addicted to weed and she must have been addicted really bad because she spent most of her paycheck on it. She basically just replaced one addiction with another.
OP, do you know my sister? lol She went from meth to religion. Helped her, but she still takes her nightly pain killer at 8pm and knocks herself out.
Seriously, I don't get it.
OP, don't do things that scare you. Don't make a bucket list. Don't do "Oprah." Just do you.
Think about what REALLY makes you happy, and then do it.
I love to watch tv, I love to drink beer, I love to look at the stars, I love to travel. And I do these things. And I'm very content.
In our American society, we are TOLD what to do, and we are TOLD what makes us happy. We need a HUGE house, in a boring suburb, we need to be straight, we need 2.5 kids, we need the latest electronic gadgets, we need cable tv, we need, we need, we need. That's corporate America and advertising. We don't tell THEM what we need. They tell us.
FUCK CORPORATE AMERICA.
I do what I want, when I want.
Think long and hard about what makes YOU happy. Then do it.
But always keep your balance. Don't run yourself into debt, don't do anything that will kill you, and don't do anything that will hurt you.
Let the stupid asshole who thinks that jumping out of a plane will make him "whole," just jump out of a plane. You can go eat an ice cream sundae, and be just as happy. ;o)
