I guess I only decided to give up drugs and alcohol when it was too late and really terrible, awful things had happened and I put myself in the most compromised and unsavory situations. Some people think that’s fun, and maybe it is for a year, or two, or five.
But when you start fucking ruining your relationships with everyone you love, it’s no longer fun.
I endorse a healthy drink or a healthy drug, and I’m completely against prohibition laws. I think everything should be legal. Human beings should have the right to do whatever they want and not be controlled by their government.
But if you can’t handle having a drink or two, then don’t. I cannot. I tried the test every night for 15 years. I know how it ends with me.
The little speech Bert gave before The Used played On My Own, during which he went down to his knees, grabbed my hand and held onto it. Such an incredible, special moment.
