This morning an old classmate of mine sent me one of those slogan mini-posters in an email. It came with the subject "Wisdom." It said:
When you are dead, you don't know that you are dead. It is difficult only for the others.
It is the same when you are stupid.
It should have continued, however, with the following:
It is the same when you are an addict.
And when an addict knows he or she is an addict and doesn't get help, then the addict is also stupid.
And then the addict dies.
Have a smart New Year.
