Good morning and happy Sunday boys, girls and others. Why is it a happy Sunday for me? Because tomorrow is a holiday and I’m off from the salt mines, WOO-HOO!
As for me? Last night while helping my wife with the cleaning, she gave me permission to buy two 6 packs of beer, and the truth is that after everything was said and done, I only drank 8, had something to eat and went to bed. As a matter of fact, there are still 4 beers in the fridge right now and I’m not planning on touching them for shit. The best thing of all is that I don’t have any regrets or hangover.
I think that at 51 years old, my body and brain are beginning to see alcohol in a totally different way, which is good, because I’m not drinking to get drunk, plus the next day, I’m not looking forward to start drinking early in the morning like I usually do. It really is good, plus my wife is super happy with the change.
Good morning and happy Saturday kids. After a couple of weekends without drinking, yesterday evening I decided to have a couple of beers, and to be honest with you, that’s exactly what I did. After having four 7 oz beers, I just didn’t feel like drinking anymore, so I got myself a sandwich, then coffee with milk and watched TV until I fell asleep. As a matter of fact, today I feel fucking great, as if I didn’t drink at all.
The truth is, that after everything was said and done, I was way too fucking tired to drink anyway, because even though I’m currently working from home, Monday through Friday I still wake up at around 4:30 am, start working at 8:00 am and by the time I finish my work day at 4:30 pm, most of the time, I just want to walk my baby and then take a nap. I guess yesterday was no exception or is this a new weekend thing for me? Are my mind and body trying to say something to me? As always, I’m an open minded person, so I’ll keep an eye on that.
Good afternoon and happy Friday kids. I could be lot of things, but one thing I’m not is hypocrite and a liar. As I have mentioned before, I don’t drink during regular weekdays or workdays, I only drink some weekends, and even though I’ve been working from home since mid-March, I only do it on Fridays after work, never during.
To get to the point, today I decided to have a couple of beers while I chill out at home after work, while listening to some old-school Latin freestyle and House music. The thing about me is, that when I decide to drink, I like doing it at home or at family gatherings, for some reason, I never liked bars or such places. At home, I can have a couple of family members and or friends over, talk, laugh and listen to whatever music we want in a safe environment, without having to worry that a drunk asshole, might want to start something with us. With that said… Cheers kids!
Yesterday, I was finally able to figure out why I have never been able to click with AA or call myself an alcoholic. Let me put it this way, I do drink, and when I do, it’s no surprise that I always binge for a couple of days. The thing about my drinking is, that when I do it, I only do it on some, not every, someweekends and never on workdays. As a matter of fact, I can go months without any alcohol and don’t even miss it. I believe that the problem lies, when society and the medical community classifies someone like me as an alcoholic.
To be honest, one thing that I did learn from my research was, that even though I occasionally binge drink, I worry way too fucking much what society and the medical community labels me as, and I have to stop that shit and worry about really important things. Sometimes I do feel that my worrying stems from my OCD, but I really can’t say for sure. So now you know the reason, why you won’t see me posting a lot about drinking and shit.
Good morning and happy hump day kids, I hope that you enjoy your day to the fullest without letting an asshole fuck it up for you no matter what goes down.
As for me? Based on the app for drunks like me, today is my 9th alcohol-free day and I feel fucking great… WOO-HOO! As the days pass, I feel better and better, because my body is getting rid of all the fucked-up alcohol that I put in it during my last weekend binge. I’ve also been getting into the habit of taking my crazy meds every day, especially Lithium at night. Other than that, I’m chilling like a villain. So what’s up in your neck of the woods?
Good morning and happy Tuesday kids, I am happy to say that today is my 8th alcohol-free day and I feel fucking great! My only advise to those who want to stop drinking is, to do whatever the fuck works for them.
In my case, since I’m an on and off weekend binge drinker, I don’t have a problem staying away from alcohol on regular weekdays. Since I’m a beer drinker, even if someone was to offer me a case of beer on a Wednesday, I will gladly turn it down without thinking about it twice. Now, if the same scenario is played out on a Friday evening after work, then the story will have a different ending. Always keep in mind, that we drunks were not created equal.
Good morning and happy Monday kids, it’s official, my first alcohol-free weekend of 2021 came and went like diarrhea, but smoother. Right now, I am super duper happy, because I don’t have to worry about a fucked up hangover or any fucked up regrets, and to be honest, I feel like to Tony the tiger… Grrreat! As a matter of fact, today is my 7th alcohol-free day… WOO-HOO!
The one person who I really have to thank is my better half… my wife of 30+ years, for keeping my crazy ass busy most of the time over the weekend. Because the thing about my weekend binge drinking is, that I do it out of boredom, not because my body needs or wants alcohol, I only do it because most of the time I don’t have shit to do on the weekends, specially the evenings. I’m just glad and happy, that I am were I am right now. Keep hope alive!
