Thread Name: Morris Dancers-why do you dance?
Subject: RE: Morris Dancers-why do you dance?
Hi name is Dave Wynn and I am a morris dancer. I have been clean now for almost 5 years if you don't count a one day a year dance out for a local side. It ruined my life and destroyed my family. Friends rejected me and I was in endless bother with the police for having to feed my habit.

I hit the gutter around 5 years back with almost 6 continuous weeks of dancing at festivals and ceilidh's. When you are down there man you get time to reflect on what could have been had I not been stupid enough to have my first dance fix. Then another and another and by then it's too late. Hooked!!

I am trying to rebuild my life and marriage and with a little help and encouragement I may just make it.

To anyone out there considering fooling with the hard stuff like Northwest or Border just say no. Even a toke on Cotswold will eventually lead to the slippery slope. Don't do it friends. I have been there and it was hell.
