Robin Williams, my favorite childhood actor, who passed away August 11th, 2014, had his most successful years while he was clean and sober. Unfortunately he slipped back into the bad habit of drug use, which made him more likely to give into the impulses of depression. “Oh but these drugs (pot, crack, cocaine, meth, etc.) make me creative, it’s for the art“, some say. We were created in the image of God and have unlimited potential. Drugs inhibit the ability for you to have control of your actions, making you dependent on others with life’s most mundane tasks. Your art is less likely to reach completion when your mind is scattered or in a stupor. Take charge of your life and create a professional reputation.
