Advantages and Disadvantages
Well guys..Today has been a real hard one. Worst one yet. I want to get high so bad it's not even funny. I made it well known to my whole family how I am feeling. Why? Sabotage. I am under a spot light today now. I would never do that before. Hell..I am scared to even go to the store even. They see my truck missing for a second and they will know it. My aunt lives right behind me and my cousin on the next street. LOL. Gotta love em.
Anyway. I have this list on my wall right in front of my desk with all the advantages
and disadvantages of using and not using. I have been staring at it all day.
So I want to share with you all my list. It has been there for months.

Try and memorise your disadvantages Chiy.I know when we slip up all reason goes out the window,but if all the negatives are instilled in your mind ,then that will make it that much easier in the struggle.
Into each life some rain must fall,some days be dark and dreary.
The Difficult is that which can be done immediately;the Impossible that which takes a little longer.
