The one thing that I have never successfully been able to organize, however, is my pills. That is, until I got a new pill dispenser. Most pill boxes that I have seen aren’t really adequate for my needs. Your average pillbox is meant for people who take a couple pills …

Sure, now we have the Internet and cell phones, bla bla bla. However, the alcohol, drugs, sex and peer pressure have been around forever. We grappled with these issues just like teens do today.
