Back through Time

Posting here daily is helping
Another clear day and a new thought
While driving to the store and back I realized a mind-set Iíve had for at least a couple of years
Iíd go get booze and drink with the feeling of returning emotionally to my past
Iíd check out folks on Facebook, look up individuals I havenít seen in years and paint the past in a lovely picture in my mind
I thought it was melancholic comfort
But my anxiety stems from those times so Iím not sure of the attraction
Alcohol-fueled time travel
Wasnít a good thing at all, but thatís exactly what I was doing

Yes, alcohol prevents you from being present in the moment. I know I missed a lot when I was drinking.

I have done the same thing. I ended up deleting facebook because of it. I am more present sober and a lot happier.

If I make a new fb itís going to be decidedly different
But that will be much later
Right now, aside from help and family, Iíve cut myself off from folks pretty much
Thing is- it was easy and Iím much better off
Feels like a healthy thing for me
