I’ve recently had my first trip to jail. Some may consider it impressive that I’ve managed to stay out of trouble for so long, considering that I’m a middle-aged man and have been a degenerate alcoholic most of my life.
All I can say is that Clark County jail really isn’t that bad, but waiting to hear what you’re charged with because you’re too drunk and crazy to remember what happened is terrifying. Then learning that you do indeed belong in jail is the lowest feeling imaginable.
So, I urge all those reading this, who may suffer from mental health issues and alcohol addiction to get help now, before it’s too late. Please learn from my lesson. I’ve included information for important resources: National Domestic Violence Hotline, 800-799-7233; Suicide and Crisis Lifeline, 988; Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s National Helpline, 1-800-662-HELP (4357).
