*I do not and have never had problems with substance abuse. I do not drink, have never smoked, and have not experimented with any controlled substances. The only drugs I've ever taken have been over-the-counter painkillers (history of headaches and migraines) and things which have been prescribed to me (antibiotics, antidepressants, et cetera).
