Those words of wisdom are from a recovering addict who was chatting with another guy in recovery on the bus the other day. Now, I've often heard kids talk about buying drugs, and I often hear people talking about doing drugs, and I once heard some high school kids express concern after talking about where they were meeting their pot connection that they'd been speaking in front of a narc, but this went further than all that.
They didn't appear to be friends, so who knows how the conversation started, but one guy had just gotten out of rehab and was talking to the other guy about how all his time had gone to scoring heroin, doing heroin, or talking about it. He was concerned about how to fill his time.
The other guy concurred - hence the full-time job comment. But he maintained that his new-found friend could stay off junk and rebuild his life. It was really a powerful conversation. I'm sorry I won't know how it turns out.
