"Addiction is a decision. An individual wants something, whatever that something is, and makes a decision to get it. Once they have it, they make a decision to take it. If they take it too often, that process of decision making gets out of control, and if it gets far out of control, it becomes an addiction. At that point the decision is a difficult one to make, but it is still a decision. Do I or don't I. Am I going to take or am I not going to waste my life or am I going to say no and try and stay sober and be a decent person. It is a decision. Each and every time. A decision. String enough of those decisions together and you set a course and you set a standard of living. Addict or human. Genetics do not make that call. They are just an excuse. They allow people to say it wasn't my fault I am genetically predisposed. It wasn't my fault I was programmed from day one. It wasn't my fault I didn't have any say in the matter. Bull. There is always a decision. Take responsibility for it. Addict or human. It's a decision. Each and every time. 

- James Frey, A Million Tiny Little Pieces

Dont throw yourself out on another’s whim. People change, as do intentions and as a Result, consequences. Live for yourself - Love those around you, but realize that they’ve got their own agendas. Alex Gaskart

- Alex Gaskart

The first step towards getting somewhere is to decide that you are not going to stay where you are.

- John Pierpont

This is failure. It’s that moment when you realize that a choice you made, or something you did, has fully changed the course of your life. But what matters even more than this truth is what you do choose to do once you know it. The tendency may be to curl up in the fetal position and wait for things to improve. But if you can somehow manage to take a breath and look around you, you might just spot another path you hadn’t seen before. It may not be easy to walk, especially the beginning. But all that really matters is that it’s there.

- Sarah Dessen

Music is enough for a lifetime, but a lifetime is not enough for music.
