Working you're back up the ladder...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Alcohol and drugs got the best of me years ago. Just getting back on my feet and its tough to have superiors that were just like you when you were their age.

I'm constantly amazed by how prevalent alcohol and drug abuse is among chefs, I can understand how they could be easily abused to handle the stress and long hours. Every chef I have worked under or with has had substance issues, I thank God my easygoing personality hasn't led me down that path. It destroys lives

I drank pretty hard for a couple decades.  Smartest move I ever made was quitting altogether.

"Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit." - Aristotle

Me too.

It's just not worth the damage it does.
