This video reminds me of me when I was drinking, especially the warning at the end about keeping "the girl" away from hard objects. LOL
I'm busy chasing my ass these days trying to wind up the toy drive and get ready for Santa's visit to Chelem so I'm going to cheat on my blog and post some responses that I have posted on the message boards in the last couple of days. They pretty much sum up my life these days. This first one is to a woman who posted on the mmabsers board about her discomfort in social situations while not drinking. In her posts she said, "I'm not like Kary May who can go out with her drinking friends and still have fun."
Maggie, I'd like to clarify or re-evaluate my position on going out and having "fun" with the drinking buds.
I think in my first year of sobriety I was so focused on getting through everything without drinking and trying to prove to myself and everybody else that I could do it and that I hadn't changed, I was still the same "fun and frolic" Kary May that I'd always been. When I made it through those situations, I thought, "Wow, I made it through, my life hasn't really changed, I just don't drink anymore."
I was still trying to be "on" all the time.
**** Sorry for the shitty cut and paste job on the earlier blog, hopefully it makes a little more sense now. I think I've caught my tail and managed to shove my head up my ass. LOL!
