free choice

Recently, I've noticed several people with prescriptions easily as compelling as some of mine, drinking wine or cocktails.  Anyone who knows me can tell you that I don't drink.  I never really did...but why would I mix alcohol and pills?  I don't need the warning label on the bottle to remind me that it's just not a good choice.

Baffled as I was by this, when I thought about the people I saw making this choice, the issue became more perplexing.  These were smart, savvy, usually responsible people.  I'm trying not to be judgmental but I just cannot understand this kind of free choice

The more I ponder this conundrum, the more bewildered I am...
I believe in free choice
I support it
I trust it
I have faith in free choice
I depend on it
I would blow up balloons and wave banners
and throw a parade for free choice...

But how is it possible to choose sitting on your hands and doing nothing
when someone you care about chooses to do something that truly scares you...
