”When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child.
”When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put all childish ways behind me.” ( 1Co.13:11 ) As a child,I can remember times when laughing uncontrollably with my family or friends, was as natural as breathing. But when I began to be a man, I put childish ways behind me and started using alcohol & drugs - to make me laugh uncontrollably.
It came to a point, in my life, that whenever I wanted to laugh and have fun and enjoy myself, I had to get high or drunk first! Going to a movie or party or concert or family gathering or date required the prerequisite of getting high.
