Now that I'm old enough to know better, having seeing these in my youth, I have to ask some basic questions:
If winners don't use drugs, can you please explain...
1) Critics and comedians like George Carlin, Bill Hicks, Lenny Bruce, Sam Kinison and Richard Pryor?
2) Musicians and bands like The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Nirvana, "Dimebag" Darrell, Alice in Chains?
3) The current culture surrounding today's professional sports and athletes?
4) People like Terence McKenna?
Even when I was young, I knew - people use drugs, winners make the most of their experiences, draw strength from them and push ever forward. It wasn't until I found the above examples, and more like them, that I could express these thoughts into words.
