    When is the right time to stop using a drug? When you see that your health has started failing? When everyone deserts you and you are all alone?

    IMHO, the best time to stop using drugs is when you have this urge to change. It could be when you get that hangover. Make a snap decision to turn your back on drugs. Never for a moment deceive yourself that it will get easier if you wean yourself off the drugs first. Neither wait for next tomorrow, next week or the New Year. There's no guarantee that you'll be any more willing to fight an addiction at an indefinite in the future.

    The time for action is NOW.
