Egotistical Thinking

".....I laugh at myself sometimes when I look back at my egotistical thinking during my heroin use. I thought I was different. I thought I was above everyone in rehab because they were all losers and junkies. I didn't live on the street and I had a good job. I was different, I had brains.

.....I laugh at myself sometimes when I look back at my egotistical thinking during my heroin use. I had strong beliefs in a healthy lifestyle. I was a vegetarian, worked out, ran 5k's regularly and would never take any medications.

...... Funny with all my egotistical thinking that somehow the 30 day rehab program didn't care I ran 5k's. Funny how when I was arrested for paraphernalia the police didn't care that I had brains. Funny how when I was doing time in jail the inmates didn't care I had a job or a healthy lifestyle. Funny how my family didn't ignore my heroin habit because I worked out. I mean, damn, I wouldn't put meat in my body, but I would inject heroin!" -Jim - sober 420 days
