RockStar:60 #9 “That Smell”
You can smell it… literally and figuratively.
It stinks because of the undeniable stench that often accompanies a user.
It stinks because of its cumulative negative effects on human life… users as well as non-users.
The tragic plane crash that befell Lynyrd Skynyrd in 1977 was only made worse by the eventual addiction-related death of founding guitarist Allen Collins in 1990.
“Whiskey bottles, and brand new cars | Oak tree you’re in my way | There’s too much coke and too much smoke | Look what’s going on inside you” ~ Lynyrd Skynyrd
And what stinks worse than addiction is the denial of addiction, and the accompanying rejection of personal accountability.
Until a person is willing to accept responsibility for their choices and actions, there is little hope for recovery… from anything that ails them. All that’s left is a high price paid and a huge void.
“All excesses lead to their opposite.” ~ Unknown
So this is about rocking recovery… and is for the skeptical, the curious, and the convinced alike.
