My pre-diabetes is down a notch; just had a blood test last week. I think my last beer was with Captain Caveman. I gave up beer.

I only drink wine now.

I don't know whether to be proud you quit drinking beer or ashamed because I should feel responsible for turning you into a wino.

I love red wine.  Especially a glass while I am cooking. 

Take a tiny bite of raw garlic and a sip of cab = magical.

Holding back the years..
Chance for me to escape from all I know.
Holding back the tears.
There's nothing here has grown.
I've wasted all my tears,
Wasted all those years.
Nothing had the chance to be good,

Nothing ever could.
I'll keep holding on



I always thought a black woman sang that.   Nope! 


This fucking guy sings that song!!!!!

Aren't you an alcoholic?

I could very well be classified as an alcoholic, but I don't really like to think of myself that way.

Alcoholic isn't even a real word. It was started by AA as a name to call their members. I don't go to AA anymore. It's too weird.

I can't imagine trying to quit drinking by talking about drinking all the time.  That would be like trying to quit whores and hanging out at the titty bar or something. 

I had an acquaintance die of liver failure here last fall, he went fast.  The whites of his eyes would get yellow sometimes and people would tell him to go to the doctor for years.  After he retired, he drank himself to death by vodka.  He was feeling shitty, his ex-wife forced him to the doctor.  Doc checked him in, he went into a coma and was dead in 48 hours.   He used to brag that he had never exercised nor ate a salad in his entire life.  Don't be like that space. He had kids and grandkids.

The founder of AA, Bill Wilson, advocated for the use of LSD in addiction treatment.


AA is basically a cult. It's an incomplete and shit approach to addiction treatment.

most of the tenets are b.s. religious brainwashing..but it has helped many.

Noteworthy is that its the support groups and cathartic talking that is actually doing the helping..its akin to seeing a shrink

#2 if you motivated yourself to go to AA, it means you already have the motivation & drive to make changes. that there is more useful than the entire organization

AA is a cult.

My exboyfriend's Josh's liver is done.  He is going to die at 48.   His sister took him in.   I want to say goodbye to him but I don't want to bother them.

I've met some really cool people in AA and heard stories that would blow your mind.

Like, lot's of lawyers and doctors are in AA. One doc said he opened up a patient who'd O.D. on Oxycotin. In her stomach was an undissovled pill. He washed it off and took it himself.

AA is a place for lonely people with drinking problems to go and socialize. It's pretty cool actually, but not for me.
