It takes a real man to admit it, do it, then keep on doing it.

I'm not letting life things or chemicals control me. We don't need a pill, a smoke, a drink, or lots of food.

We need lots of sex and a bike. And one outta 2 ain't bad!

I started drinking at 11am today....guess I have to take up the slack!

Seriously though, my brother just started rehab for alcohol abuse. Some people aren't wired to handle it. He sure isn't....took him probably 20 years too long to realize it. Of course, getting breathalyzed at work (a high school) and failing it gets your attention too.
