I talk about sobriety because it’s important to know it’s cool to be clean and even cooler to kick ass while yer on this damn planet and not to slither and slump through a dull experience. Make it count. I lost a lot of time. For sure been making up for it for the last 20 years. Living in gratitude sets you free of ego(fear) and demons too. It works if you work it. Have a great day.”
