That never fails."
I found this quote in a book today and I found it to be inspiring. I'm on day 14 and I'm .... Me. Not some groveling idiot with all these personality defects or someone living in disillusionment. I feel that I know myself better and I've learned to put my addiction in perspective.
I'm sure there are plenty of people on this blog that would denigrate something as stupid as driving drunk. You could kill some innocent soul or hurt yourself ... So why on earth would one ever drive drunk? I think it's an ego thing. "Oh I can do it. I'm fine" As if we were born with superpowers! Some people CAN drive drunk?
Likewise I think that for the past two years I've been in denial. I can masturate be in isolation and still be happy! As if secretly I was stronger than my fellow man and I could easily handle this handicapp. Not so. So in that spirit, I accept this undeniable truth that excessive pleasure comes with a price. That's just the way it is! Think about high calorie foods and the price we pay with them. Temporary pleasure the expense of our health. Is there anything more preacious?
Goodness truly is the only investment that never fails. Seek good and let no one else convince you otherwise.
