This is a pretty old short story. It definitely reflects a certain period of my life, I'll say that much.
This originally appeared in an issue of the literary magazine "Children, Churches, and Daddies." It was also published in two collections, "Literary Town Hall," and "Falling Into Place," both of which are available on Amazon via the links conveniently located to your right.
I should probably point out that "Gateway Drug" is rated R, mostly for swearing and one description involving a stripper. I would also avoid it if you're an incredibly conservative Christian, but I can't imagine you are, given my audience.

I hope you enjoy it! Hey, can't be the price, at least.
And if you haven't, check out my first Free Fridays offering, "Unrequited," and the one from last week, "Young Zombies in Love."
I promise more literary fun in just seven days!
