I am still trying to find my anti-drug but so far proving people wrong, writing, exercise, and caffeine caffeine caffeine have all proven to be decent motivators/alternatives.

Various things like karate.


Check out my blog: White-Out Blots

How did Mandela get the will to surpass the everyday,
When injustice had him caged and trapped in every way,
How did Ghandi ever withstand the hunger strikes and all,
Didn't do it to gain power or money if I recall,
It's to give; I guess I'll pass it on

Well I do drugs from time to time so I don't really have an anti-drug. When I was an addict though my solace was my boyfriend and music or going for long cruises and just having a nice long talk.

Music! Percussive noise, band pass filter sweeping through sequences, good old analog sawtooth, wavetable mayhem, high driven band pass filters, overdriven comb filters, delay, delay, delay aaaahhhhhhh! *melts*



I have been known to spend an entire day locked in my studio with nothing to keep me company but 2 keyboards and a synthesizer!

There's just something special that happens when you mess around with an interesting sound, sequence it and with that sound looping in the background just loose yourself to it and let everything, everything in your mind just take over the instrument. The result is incredible if unpredictable.

Beforehand I would have said flying, but it's too expensive to do regularly. Still it opened my eyes to the world and kept me going for a good year or two.

Don't lose who you are, in the blur of the stars
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing,
It's okay not to be okay
Sometimes it's hard, to follow your heart
Tears don't mean you're losing, everybody's bruising,
Just be true to who you are

My ex drug addict mother and my drinking father, along with a wrecked childhood. When I got taken away by CPS, then a receiving home, then foster care.

That's my Anti-drug.

My Anti-drug: music, friends, writing, and knowing that I'll feel even worse after taking drugs.


Yesterday I saw you kissing tiny flowers
But everything that lives is born to die
And so I say to you that nothing really matters
And all you do is stand and cry.


Music is life. Start living.

Since I have got out of drug addiction, being very negative has been a good anti-drug. It sounds terrible, but if I embrace the fact of not being happy, then I can avoid drugs.

I just want to remind everyone that it is always possible to find an 'anti-drug'. Anything (as long as it is a healthy alternative) can be a good anti-drug. You just have to find something meaningful enough to you. Recovery is possible for everyone. Even if you aren't ready or willing to fully recover you can still put forth an effort by trying to use less of the substances you are abusing. Every little effort counts. A big anti-drug for me has been positive support from the people around me. Without support and encouragement I wouldn't even dream of wanting to stop drugs. If anyone would ever need a little extra support or encouragement you can always PM me and I will be more than happy to try and help.

I give out my best wishes to anyone struggling though any sort of addiction. It is one of the most difficult battles you can go through in part because it is so much a battle with yourself.

I am here for you if you need me.


Lots of love <3 Mimi
