Straight Edge - Four Years

Thursday, January 3, 2013

It's been about four years since I made the commitment to straight edge. It's something that has definitely given me a positive outlook on life and lead me to greater things. But don't get me wrong. I don't downplay people that drink and smoke. I'm not one to judge. When it becomes a habit, however, then there's a problem. My commitments to this way of living was inspired by a girl who I used to date (she was an oxycotin user) and a former roommate (he lost everything and became an alcoholic). The two of them were an important asset in my life to remind me that this is what I used to be and this is what I would've become. I'm now clean, ridding myself from those distractions and reminding myself of the more important things... like living life.

Thank you straight edge, again, for helping me become a better person. This isn't just a lifestyle.... it's a way of life.
