67. Stronger Than You Know
“How did you escape the cult you were in?” I asked Quinn. He told me about crossing northern Idaho on a bicycle. His escape took three nights. He panhandled enough money for a bus ticket and didn’t feel safe until he landed in Virginia.
“Did you ever think you could quit drinking?” he asked. I told him until I really tried, I didn’t think I’d be able to. He said, “People are stronger than they think. They don’t try, or they quit too soon, because they don’t know how strong they really are. I saw people die because they didn’t know they had they strength to leave the cult.”
“I’ve seen people die because they didn’t know they had the strength to quit.”
Today I won’t underestimate my strength.
