Out of the fog

My first year in?university saw me go from a sober person with straight As to a drunk and high person with Ds and Fs. ?I quit, got a job and kept drinking. ?I did well at work, got promoted a few times and figured everything was on the up and up. ?"I could live like this for the rest of my life" I thought. ?Money booze and women were my priorities. ?Bang. I woke up in a hospital room handcuffed to a bed. ?I had been DUI and done what every drunk has nightmares about: killed someone. ?Three people actually, one of them my best friend. ?That was my last drunk, and every sober day since then, including my time in prison, has been a blessing. ?Now I'm married to a beautiful woman, have less money, can't move back to my home city, and I'm still happy. ?I have real priorities, and now everything's REALLY on the up and up.
