1) not until my 40's. Before then, i just thought i was like everyone else.

2) yes

3) most

4) yes

5) no

6) round robin

7) very

8) depends..I think I matured out of drug abuse in my teens....I never matured out of alcohol abuse because I am an alcoholic

9) maybe. would I rather not have made an ass of myself, sinking to total demoraliztion. yes. If i could be where I am today without it..yes. But I believe to reach my spiritual awakening I had to be an alcoholic. So I am grateful for it.

10) really? why? and yes
