If the prospect of jail doesn't sound appealing to you, for whatever reason, getting sober is really the best option. Stage fright, anyone?

3.When you have 5 days and realize how insane you actually are, and all you can do is cry.

The Hokey Pokey struggle is real... very real. Watch yourself!

5.When you find yourself completely overwhelmed by the song 99 problems and you have no other option but to get to work...

Things we start realizing about ourselves:

  • I look really good, that meth skinny wasn't too hot. 
  • I actually have nice things to say to people... and I mean them.
  • I'm actually funny?!
  • I guess I must have learned something in school... I just rocked the math for the donation basket! 
  • Etc.

9.When you start to have fun doing the things you never thought you could do, sober...

Who would have known that fun exists outside of my apartment, alone, with the TV off, crying... Weird!
