In reading other blogs, normal people (non alcoholic, non addict) seem to think (of course I don't know what other people think) that when we get clean and sober, we should like the same things that they do. That being safe and warm and well fed after a day of honest labor is a state of being that everyone should be trying to attain. It seems to tear them apart when we get clean and we don't jump on that same philosophy. I've always wondered, if you took a bunch of these normies and transplanted them down to a remote village in a jungle somewhere with a tribe of happy people living in huts with no running water or jobs to go to, if they might realize that "normal" is sometimes just what you're used to. Once you've slept on a pillowtop mattress, a dirt floor with straw just doesn't compare. For some of us, once you've altered your mind to a brain numbing fog of ecstasy.......reality just doesn't compare.
