Even though I haven’t binge or gone on a weekend bender in a while, yesterday I decided to stop drinking for 30 days, which is not going to be hard, since I only drink on the weekends. So today is actually my 3rd day without alcohol. Believe it or not, the longest that I have gone without drinking is 5 years, and that was from July 2010 to July 2015.
Good morning and happy Sunday kids. I’m happy to say that yesterday my wife and daughter had a big time birthday celebration and they loved it.
As for me? I don’t know how many beers I had last night, but after everything was said and done, I went to bed and I didn’t continue drinking this morning the way that I usually do, which is fucking great. I don’t know, but I really think that something changed in my brain, because I’m not drinking like a crazy person, the way that I used to do on the weekends, which is good. As a matter of fact, today I feel great because I don’t have a hangover.
Good afternoon and TGIF kids! I hope you enjoy your day to the fullest and remember, don’t let no asshole fuck it up for you no matter what goes down.
Today I took a vacation day from the salt mines, in order to help my wife and daughter get things ready for their birthday celebration tomorrow. In case you might ask, yes they both share the same birthday, which is crazy, because they each have a surprise planned for the other, but they don’t know about it.
Yesterday I had my monthly virtual session with my shrink Dr. C and to be honest, he wasn’t disappointed with my on and off weekend drinking, because I’m not letting it get out of control like I usually do with my weekend binge drinking.
Other than that, we talked about the challenges that I’ve been facing while working from home since mid March, my OCD intrusive thoughts, my Bipolar II racing thoughts, depression and mania. I told him that I’ve been feeling pretty good, but that I take the mania over the depression any time, because I’m full of energy and I get a lot of things done. He laughed and told me that most people say the same thing. There was no change to my crazy meds, which are Prozac 80mg, Lithium 300mg and Ambien 10mg. The next time I’ll see him, will be in February. WOO-HOO!
After a three day weekend, today I’m back to the salt mines and yes I’m still working from home until July 1, 2021. After I finish at the salt mines, I have my monthly session with my shrink Dr. C which I really enjoy, because I get a lot of crazy shit out of my head and feel better afterwards. Other than that, I don’t have any other plan.
Good morning and happy Monday kids! I hope you enjoy your day to the fullest and remember not to let an asshole fuck it up for you no matter what goes down.
As for me? The 4 beers left from Saturday night are still in the fridge, but It’s funny, because yesterday, the few times that I though about the beers, for some reason, I felt disgusted, so I left it at that, which reinforces the reason why I don’t see myself as an alcoholic. You see, when it comes to alcohol, I can take it or leave it, it’s just that when I do take it, I usually go on a weekend bender, which I’m happy to say didn’t happen this weekend, but I still have to be careful with that shit, because history has shown me, that I have a very crazy and unstable relationship with alcohol.
