I am your master now!


(super nerdy comment alert) But in the words of darth vader to his son luke : You do not understand the power of the darkside, I have to obey my master.

Now how i relate this to alcohol and drug addiction. It all starts off so innocent but before you know it you are slaved into a relationship and the substance now becomes your master. You will do whatever you can to get "said" substance and to please your master.

Until the cycle is broken you will continue pleasing your master whilst hurting yourself in the process.

Its been around 160 days sober for me and alcohol is no longer my master, my best wishes go out to all those struggling with addiction. Once again become your own master.

In my twisted logic i would put it as.

Darth Vader = Helpless Addict
Dark Side = whatever substance

It is possible to redeem yourself, just as Darth Vader did lol.

Master Of Puppets

End of passion play, crumbling away
I'm your source of self-destruction
Veins that pump with fear, sucking dark is clear
Leading on your deaths construction

Taste me you will see
More is all you need
Dedicated to
How I'm killing you

Come crawling faster
Obey your Master
Your life burns faster
Obey your Master
Master

Master of Puppets I'm pulling your strings
Twisting your mind and smashing your dreams
Blinded by me, you can't see a thing
Just call my name, 'cause I'll hear you scream
Master
Master
Just call my name, 'cause I'll hear you scream
Master
Master

Needlework the way, never you betray
Life of death becoming clearer
Pain monopoly, ritual misery
Chop your breakfast on a mirror

Taste me you will see
More is all you need
Dedicated to
How I'm killing you

Come crawling faster
Obey your Master
Your life burns faster
Obey your Master
Master

Master of Puppets I'm pulling your strings
Twisting your mind and smashing your dreams
Blinded by me, you can't see a thing
Just call my name, 'cause I'll hear you scream
Master
Master
Just call my name, 'cause I'll hear you scream
Master
Master

Master, Master, where's the dreams that I've been after?
Master, Master, you promised only lies
Laughter, Laughter, all I hear or see is laughter
Laughter, Laughter, laughing at my cries
Hell is worth all that, natural habitat
Just a rhyme without a reason
Neverending maze, drift on numbered days
now your life is out of season
I will occupy
I will help you die
I will run through you
Now I rule you too

Come crawling faster
Obey your Master
Your life burns faster
Obey your Master
Master

Master of Puppets I'm pulling your strings
Twisting your mind and smashing your dreams
Blinded by me, you can't see a thing
Just call my name, 'cause I'll hear you scream
Master
Master
Just call my name, 'cause I'll hear you scream
Master
Master

Love the analogy and the message.

I believe God is my "master", but we both can agree that alcohol/drugs no longer are and that's the main point.

I think the substance is the dude at the bar that taps luke and goes "He doesn't like you"

Thanks for the reminder my HP is my master to but every one has their own concept of a HP, some may be Darth Vader, although I know that was not what he was refering to. Peace ya all

lol...Star Wars... that is a cool analogy. Never thought of that one. Some others I thought of are Snape from Harry Potter. And also vampires. They only come out at night and have an insatiable thirst. How is that not an addict right?? The ones in Twilight only eat animal blood and are "abstinent". Lol so corny I know....
