I remember a time when I was not able to learn from my mistakes. I think I passed it off as this is the way it is. My addiction had such a hold on me and my precept ion of the world around me. That was over 33 years ago. I don't remember having friends around me saying "Spyder, you got to change!". I wonder if it would have made a difference? My addiction could care less if I'm doing well or not. This is what I thought about when I heard what happened to Billy. I hope this is his spiritual awakening, that is what it took for me.
4 years 6 months clean. When I was in active addiction I really didn't have a choice. It is a sad situation and I feel badly for Billy Lane. Let hope he can make this a positive experience in his life.
