68. Yoda was Wrong
The next day two men were sitting in our waiting room, waiting for Josh The Evaluator.
The younger man said, “What are we doing here? I’ve tried everything. This isn’t going to work.”
The older man hit the roof. “You tried? You tried two NA meetings. A girl you met there refused to go out with you, and you never went back. You kept smoking weed and drinking while you tried anti-depressants. You tried SMART Recovery? You read some of their materials online, ignored their advice, and switched to wine. How smart was that? You did truly try heroin. Then you tried methadone, got a prescription for Valium, and smoked weed the whole time. You tried Suboxone? Let’s not even go there. You know what you should try? Try really trying!”
Today whatever I try, I will truly try.
