Memories of alcohol

Posted on our local AA site. So very very true

I drank for happiness and became unhappy. I drank for joy and became miserable. I drank for sociability and became argumentative. I drank for sophistication and became obnoxious. I drank for friendship and made enemies. I drank for sleep and woke up tired. I drank for strength and felt weak. I drank for relaxation and got the shakes. I drank for courage and became afraid. I drank for confidence and became doubtful. I drank to make conversation easier and slurred my speech. I drank to feel heavenly and ended up feeling like hell."

True, so true.

But so wish there was a quick fix to do all those things..

Funny enough though I couldn't stop despite. That is some massive brainwashing.
