Day 27 - I'd rather...

Dance at night on the dewy lawn,
Listen to a No Doubt song.

Tip toe through a field of butterflies,
Stand underneath the star lit skies.

Float on a tube down the river,
Get used to the water as I shiver.

Ride a bike on the boardwalk,
Meet new friends, hang out and talk.

Watch a punk band put on a fun show,
Sneak up to the very front row.

Hold my brand new baby for the first time,

Day 24 - Thank You, God

Posted 04-09-2017 at 12:55 AM by LoveHateMerlot (Diary of Wino)

Yes, there are rotten things I survived so far as a human being, but I always feel blessed. I could have been born under the horrific circumstances like the Syrian civilians. I could be a parent that pulled my dead baby out from the gravel today after my government tried to blow us up. I immediately have a different perspective, I could have been dealt different cards.

Day 22 - Nerd

Posted 04-06-2017 at 11:26 PM by LoveHateMerlot (Diary of Wino)

I'm pretty sure where my alcohol abuse stemmed from:

SEXUAL ABUSE:
I was sexually molested by my birth father until almost the age of 10. I have no communication with my birth father, other than the times he calls me from a private number. He is a psychopath, narcissistic, and sociopath. He was never clinically diagnosed, he thought he was God, but many stories in therapy gave my therapist a strong hunch. My mother remarried eventually to the most wonderful man;...

Day 14 - Roofied

I have been prescribed 20 mg of prozac daily, for the past 8 years. I'm pretty sure I missed 75% of those doses when I was drunk. I know all that alcohol stopped the positive affects that prozac was capable of providing me. The thing is, I'm not really noticing an improvement in my mood yet after taking 20 mg, every single day for the past 14 days in a row. Understandably, I didn't expect that sobriety was going to be a ray of sunshine or a walk in the park. I did think the prozac, once taking...

Open Letter from the Alcoholic/Addict

Posted 06-03-2013 at 09:07 AM by pravchaw

[QUOTE][I]The chairperson at a meeting I attended recently, who is also a member of AA, shared on this "Open Letter to the Alcoholic," which I've always thought was very powerful. I hadn't read it for a while, so it was a good reminder to me. The letter appears in the Al-Anon pamphlet "Three Views of Alcoholism." If you're not familiar with it, I've included it here:[/I][/QUOTE]

I am an alcoholic. I need your help.
