Is there a happy middle ground?

Perhaps.

Does it take a ton of time, maturation, understanding and control of one's mind and body?

Yes.

Today, I still practice performance under the influence. Medicating yourself is not just to kill pain, but also to unleash underlying aspects of your subconscious. The difficult part is finding a balance.

Have this and other poor decisions ruined potentially life-changing opportunities? Yes. Do I regret it? Not at all. Decisions are decisions and regretting them is foolish. What matters is moving forward, not using regrets as an excuse to continue self-medicating.

But there's a healthy balance. So if you are at one of my shows, stop me and let's have a drink.

I was in a moderately successful cover band. We were pretty good about limiting our drinking until the last hour of our show, but sometimes we did get trashed on  stage simply because patrons kept buying shots for the band. How do you say no? It would seem rude.
