I've been clean and sober for the longest part of my life now since I was 13 years old. It feels good to be able to breathe and not hear my lungs wheezing or to cough and not have any phlegm choking my throat. I still miss the high though but definitely not the lifestyle. Although I’m clean, I still act like I’m not sometimes. I guess there are parts of that life that is still a part of me now but not controlling me anymore. Addiction is a hard life to get out of and stay out of. But trust me, when you break that chain, watch your world change.
I'm writing a story about CCTV security cameras on homes, what's the best system, how to install them, and whether or not they're a useful deterrent.
I wondered what you thought about private security cameras. Are they good for the neighbourhood? Or a sign troubled communities?
If you've got a strong opinion about them, drop me a line and let me know what you think.
