I use to get high to cope with life, but that's never the answer. It only prolongs the inevitable. The real answers can be found within yourself. I've never felt better than sober, it's the best high of all! But I still wouldn't change those experiences if I had the chance, they grew me as a person looking back on them now. I've gotten back to writing these days, and it also helps very much. Never be afraid to reach out and talk to people, it's a useful medicine.
