I don’t really do the drugs beyond the occasional booze indulgence, but I found this pretty spot on, and great advice.

“When it comes to drugs, I’m a big proponent of the boat-sails-wind analogy: your life is a boat, the sails are your emotions, and drugs are the wind. When you’re a kid, your boat is small and your sail is huge, and drugs are like a hurricane. So you need to get to a point in life where you have a big enough boat to navigate the weather.”
