I’m Happy Like A Motherfucker!

Good morning and happy Saturday boys, girls and others. I hope that you enjoy your day to the fullest, and remember, don’t let no asshole fuck it up for you no matter what goes down.

As for me? I am happy to say that today is my 10th sober day and I feel fucking great! WOO-HOO! Aside from the usual Saturday routines like running errands and paying bills online, I don’t have any big plan for the day, except going to the local casino with my wife and some close friends later at night. Even though I’m not into gambling, I always go out of my way to please my wife. We’ve been together for 30+ years and we’re still in love like if it was the first day.

With that said, I am Audi 5000 y’all!

24/7 Remote AA Meetings

One thing about me is that when I’m wrong I admit it and move on, and in this case, when it comes to AA meetings, I was dead wrong. Well, you see, the thing is, that yesterday, I decided to give a try to the remote AA meetings, and to be honest, I fucking love it. As a matter of fact, after doing some research, I came across a 24 hours a day – 7 days a week world-wide online open meeting called AA Home Group. All jokes aside, they have remote meetings going on 24/7.

It Feels Great Feeling Great!

Today is my 8th alcohol free day, and even though I’m what they call a weekend warrior, I feel great. There’s no regrets, no diarrhea, no stomachache, no vomiting, no loss of appetite, no headache, no anxiety, no depression, no shaking, no sweating, BUT SPECIALLY, no problems with my wife. I’ll tell you; it feels great feeling great.

To Each His Own

To be honest, there are so many reasons why I haven’t been able to click with AA, that I don’t know where to begin. Just like there are religious fanatics and sports fanatics, there are AA fanatics who think they know everything, and that really creeps the living shit out of me.

I remember the first time that I gave AA a try, and an old-time member told me that I shouldn’t be taking psychiatric medications, because it alters my thinking just like alcohol did. In my mind, I was like, motherfucker, you don’t know half of the shit that goes on in my mind when it comes to my OCD. Also, talking to other members, they were against consuming everyday drinks, which they say contain alcohol, like malta, something that I have been drinking my entire life. But hey, who am I to judge… to each his own.

Why The Fucking Labels?

Yesterday, I spent hours doing online research in order to find out if I’m an alcoholic or a trouble drinker, only to stop and ask myself, why the fuck do I want to be labeled anyway? Who the fuck cares if I’m an alcoholic or a trouble drinker? Even my wife told me yesterday, that she knows that I have a drinking problem, because when I DO drink, I go on a bender for a few days, but that I wasn’t an alcoholic, because I could go for months without drinking without a problem. So, what is it with us, wanting to be labeled?

In The Beginning… Blah, Blah… Blah, Blah!

Honestly, even though sometimes I do go on long weekend benders because my problem with alcohol is that once I have the first beer, all bets are off for a couple of days, I have never considered myself an alcoholic. The reason for that is, that the weekends that I do drink are because I am bored to death and don’t have shit to do and nowhere to go, but not because my body craves or needs alcohol. As a matter of fact, if I keep myself busy, I can go months without drinking on the weekends, and never miss it.

But, since working from home for over a year because of the pandemic has been driving me crazy, I decided to attend a couple of AA meetings and go to church, in order to get out of the everyday routine, keep my sanity and meet new people. I can’t lie, it took me a while to figure it out, but I’m sure that I will be OK.
