A tribute to those of us who have used alcohol or other substances to get through. To cope. In my case, to ease my social anxiety.
In Pink Floyd’s case, this was a story about heroin. Nevertheless, it was part of my early education about how easy it can be to fall into the lure of drugs and a short term ‘fix’. So rather than judge those who do, I honour those who have resisted or who have overcome. Well done!
Meanwhile, I love the song, the guitars, and the band of course.
The child is grown
The dream is gone
I have become comfortably numb
