What are you talking about? Left field? How is sharing my experience on this topic left field? What crap did I give him?LazyLightnin wrote:
strummin' you just come out of left field, its good to know that your life got better with sobriety. in AA they teach you to be humble and accepting. its not a free ticket for a holier than thow attitiude. im not saying thats you, but thats just what happens. i know you and jim are cool dudes no doubt. but dedhed didnt need to hear that crap, he'll learn on his own. if he goes to jail im sure he wont do it again. i do however agree with what you posted about companies and the workplace - thats totally neccesary. but not for all jobs. working while your all stoned sucks anyway. i quit smokin and got a raise and a promotion, and beleive me it was all that was in my way.
i dunno keep up the good work. how about a shakedown vid? please
In fact the post you referred to was me talking to Jack Straw about my thoughts and experiences? Maybe you need to check it out again.
There is a lot to be said for living a sober life. I'm not there nor am I perfect nor am I holier than though. My words above were about priorities and the benefits of being sober and recognizing the pros and cons but mostly it was out of my experience.
This thread was predictable to some degree. Every GD forum I have even been on board has experienced this.
