Wasted: There is no better word to describe chemical intoxication. It’s a waste of time and energy, a wasted chance to be — to create — to make a difference — you name it.

“I was wasted!” What could have been in that moment! But the moment was wasted.

The brighter side? The word is past tense.

There will be a “next time,” and when that comes — the possibilities! Oh, the possibilities!
