Chris Rock on Addiction
"I don't get high, but sometimes I wish I did. That way, when I messed up in life I would have an excuse. But right now there's no rehab for stupidity."
"Actually, I think all addiction starts with soda. Every junkie did soda first. But no one counts that. Maybe they should. The soda connection is clear. Why isn't a presidential commission looking into this? Or at least some guys from the National Carbonation Council." - Chris Rock quotes

"My Dad used to always say sometimes we like to hit ourselves on the head with a hammer just because it feels so good when you stop. God, he was a wise man!"
- James, 'Letter to My Addiction'
The Sales Pitch
"Imagine how it might be if we had arrived at the doors of Narcotics Anonymous, desperate, wanting to stop using drugs, only to be met by a sales pitch: 'If you just work the steps and don't use drugs, you'll get married, live in the suburbs, have 2.6 children, and start wearing polyester...' Most of us, greeted with such a heavy-handed spiel, would have shrieked and bolted for the door."
- NA's Basic Text, p 102
