30 Days of Truth - Day 20

Day 20 → Your views on drugs and alcohol.

As the child of an alcoholic, drug abusing father - I should probably be completely against them. However, I am a believer in choice and the innate right to choose your own destiny, education and lifestyle.

If you are educated in the innate problems caused by alcohol and drugs and the associated excesses and addictive nature and choose to consume either then that is your choice. I think that experimentation is part and parcel of growth as a person.

However the problem lies not in the actual alcohol and drugs rather their misuse/abuse. A person's inability to move on from binge drinking, excessive use of drugs. It is the cultural/societal acceptance of the misuse that causes the most damage.
