Here we go again
Topic: BE GOOD TO YOURSELF

The holidays are here again. Those of you who have been following this blog for several years have heard what I am going to say before. But it needs to be said every year.

The holidays sometimes encourage alcoholics to drink more and pot users to indulge more. Parties encourage people to drink up, smoke along with everyone else and use heroine etc. You know the scene. If things get out of hand in your house know where you can go to stay. Is there a relative, a friend, a neighbor or an agency who will take you in? Always leave a note where it can be seen letting your family know where you are. If they show anger that you have gone to a safe place answer them, "I did not feel safe here. But I am your son/daughter and I love you."

Plan things you can do. Is there a Y which has programs? A movie? If you are old enough you might take a part time job during your vacation in a retail store, restaurant etc. It will keep you out of the house, your mind on other subjects and you will meet new people.

Remember you can be in charge of your life.
