leveraging plurality, drugs mention 

R: btw it is generally counter-productive to discourage me from doing things by highlighting the danger, just so you know. I think it usually works best to get me to think of other ppl, e.g. if I think I don't want girlfriends or my children to deal with an alcoholic, it holds be back.

"the people in your mind are watching" would work as much as "God is watching" for a Christian, I imagine. they stop me from self-destructive behaviour often.

leveraging religion 

R: and I mean I'm literally religious. while my spirits are not the vertical, judgy authority kind of deal, I certainly don't want to disappoint sweet Seu João d‘Angola and all the other folk on my side, so it's a bit like being with friends all the time.
