Just because you haven't ended up in jails, institutions, or death yet, remember you're eligible too if you pick up the first drink or drug. Next time you are saying that you were not as bad as somebody else, remember to add the word "yet." You also don't want to risk getting into the trouble again that led you to need to get clean and sober. The "agains" might be as bad as the "yets."
The first drink or drug is the one that kills us. We are one drink or drug away from the "yets" and the "agains." So pick up a recovery tool before you pick up a drink or drug. It's that simple.
