1. Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.

Fired for drugs. It's not what you think...

    Today, seems to be a day for me to ruminate on my own impulses. I'd love to smoke a cigarette right now, and I am struggling to resist the urge. I find myself reviewing in my mind those urges/impulsive that I handle easily or well versus those that seem overwhelming at times-- and that I give into.

    I'm looking for patterns, common themes and motifs, unifying circumstances, and deeper levels of meaning.

    I seriously doubt that I will have any earth-shattering revelations or insights-- most revelations and insights, in my experience, require patience and persistence; rarely, have I ever had a "sudden" revelation that was truly important or deeply meaningful. But, I suspect that my ruminations today might give me some slight insights that we strengthen me and help me to do the things that I know that I should do.

    It sounds like you have already found the insight you seek.

    Most of our censure of others is only oblique praise of self, uttered to show the wisdom and superiority of the speaker. It has all the invidiousness of self-praise, and all the ill-desert of falsehood. ~Tryon Edwards
