Through Louisiana and Up Past Canada

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”

Okay Then. Who Has A Shitty Attitude?!

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?!”

Wait, What? It’s Called LIFE?

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?”

Everything’s Weird Now, So I Guess I’ll Just Drink.

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.

I Can’t Get My Money!

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!”

It’s a Curious Thing …

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 …”

The Most Important Relationship

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”

The Lesser of Two Evils

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”

What’s Hardest For the Non-Alcoholic?

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?”
