A person can’t have a meaningful life while dependent on substance abuse.  Substance abuse habits are a life-sucking journey into a black hole.  Addiction destroys everything.  The temporary high is all you feel…and then the desperation of withdrawal.  There’s no real life here and the high isn’t worth it.

The best kind of high is not one that comes from alcohol or drug addiction.  The best kind of high comes from creating a life of meaning and value.  Fall in love, start a family, watch your children grow, play with your pets, have a career you love, watch the sun rise or set, have a home where your life flourishes, lie on the beach in peace and harmony, be proud of yourself for your achievements, help others, love what you see in the mirror, be with family and good friends…these are the things that life is made of.

Think about it…
