In the Family

Coming from a home where alcohol for every drink was acceptable, when I was presented the opportunity to do the same, one would think that it would be no big deal. However, every single time drugs knock on my door, turning them down becomes easier. My life without harmful substances pays off every day. My mom is now sober and I get to see her bright shinning eyes without a glaze of beer in them. Our bodies are temples, and doing harm to them will only lessen our already short time on this planet. Each of us are destined for greatness, and I believe it is our right to our family, friends, and people we don’t even know yet to stay above the influence. Live in the now and prepare for the future by staying clean for a better you tomorrow.
