President Richard Nixon declared the war on drugs and who was the enemy? The enemy: you were the enemy, society, your kids were the enemy, mothers, fathers, teachers, preachers, police, college professors, truck drivers, nurses, doctors, lawyers, neighbors, politicians, and anyone who used illegal or misused prescription drugs was the enemy.
I got clean and sober from drugs and alcohol on December 8, 1981; I was 2 months from my 43rd birthday. I decided that based on my behavior and history with drugs and alcohol that at the rate I was going; I was on my way to California Department of Corrections at San Quentin Prison, if I tested dirty one more time while on probation. I already had a 3 year suspended sentence and was going to jail for three years and did not like the consequences. Therefore, in December 8, 1981 I went to Alcoholic Anonymous, which is when my life turned around.
