That’s what a friend of mine just said about my verbal deliveries. He said that I gather momentum and power and – POW!! SUCKER PUNCH THAT INFORMATION! As he said this he demonstrated with his arm … dropped it to the ground and did a mock roundhouse sucker punch to my right temple. “Am IContinue reading “Through Louisiana and Up Past Canada”
The sun came up I had to pee My foot got twisted in the sheets My dog looked at me funny I was in withdrawal I was low on wine I had to go to the store for more wine My dad called I had to call my dad I had to go to workContinue reading “Reasons Why I Drank:”
The wind rocks me gently While the Sun feeds my spirit And the rains quench my thirst. I will grow And become Abundant. Cut me if you must. But know that my seeds Have fallen They are my offspring And through them I will exist forever.
I had to kill a snake the other day. I had to do it or it would have died slowly and painfully. It was on the bike path and I think someone had ridden over its head with their bicycle. When I walked up to it I noticed blood on the pavement that was comingContinue reading “The Snake”
Perhaps it’s that I find people in general to be most unnecessarily complicated and vexatious. For example – why might someone who indeed does manage to reach sobriety, only then switch their focus onto another drug? I ask thee (anyone) – WHY? So, to answer my own question since I’m alone with my kittens andContinue reading “Okay Then. Who Has A Shitty Attitude?!”
I find it amusing when I read other addicts moan on and on about how stressors continue to besiege them on a somewhat regular basis. I think to myself, “Get OFF your pity Potty already. It’s called LIFE. Wake up!” Perhaps this aggressive or overly assertive stance is too much for the more fragile personality.Continue reading “Wait, What? It’s Called LIFE?”
Is this guy sleepwalking? Look at his socks! Where does one even find a pair of pants like that? They look like candy canes and remind me of Christmas. Is that the pocket hanging out or just part of the pants…? Maybe it’s a matching cap. I can’t tell. I spotted this gem while waitingContinue reading “Walmart Shopper”
A lot of folks who used to be normal drinkers have lost their jobs due to the Corona Virus. With no job to occupy their days and with many services closed, a lot of drinkers have turned up the volume on their alcohol consumption. Drinking has become a new pastime. While alcohol blankets the stressContinue reading “Everything’s Weird Now, So I Guess I’ll Just Drink.”
Here is a brilliant reason why not to become an alcoholic. Drinking kills your memory and right now, I need to be remembering some valuable information! I’m trying not to freak out, but I can’t get my money. I self-published my memoir back in 2011. Since then, I have moved, changed my phone number, changedContinue reading “I Can’t Get My Money!”
I watched Lucy on the movie channel last night. The main character is made into a drug mule, against her will. A bag of something is placed into her intestines, it breaks, and the drug floods her system, gradually opening up 100% of her brain. By the end of the film, she can do justContinue reading “It’s a Curious Thing …”
Is the one I have with myself. Do I respect myself? Am I proud of what I do? Am I confident about what I say? Do my goals challenge me? Do I care for my health (in every sense)? Do I eat well? Do I let my-self enjoy the small things like the occasional pieceContinue reading “The Most Important Relationship”
This is a perfect number of sober days to celebrate with a – what else?
Here’s an example of the Super Thick Cut circular bologna that goes on inside the mind of the alcoholic. “Wine or withdrawal? Hm. Not much of a choice here…Hm.” (Drinks and thinks, which isn’t possible). “Hmmm. The result of drinking is withdrawal. I know this and that is the darndest thing. One leads to theContinue reading “The Lesser of Two Evils”
Sometimes, hiding under the covers is the best and only way to get through withdrawal. Instead of binging on alcohol or your drug of choice, try binging on a new or your favorite TV show to help you through to the sober side. Regardless – the only way out of withdrawal is through it. PostponingContinue reading “Get UP!”
I can only imagine how difficult and confusing it must be for a non-addict to watch a loved one get smashed on their drug of choice. The incongruity and stupidity of an addict’s choices, behavior and statements have to be nothing short of mind boggling. That said, I think the hardest thing for a non-addictContinue reading “What’s Hardest For the Non-Alcoholic?”
