Alcohol


It seems alcohol is the one thing I can count on to help me feel good about myself.

It turns out that if I cut myself off on work nights, drink water, eat throughout the night, etc - I do just fine in my menial construction job.

I can do whatever the hell I want on non-work nights. It ain't like I'll ever have a significant other, family, or really any real life friends at all. So I've found quasi-happiness in being a drunk - mind you, just a partial drunk.

nah this won't wash with this audience man.

I used to think drinking made me happy too - but it didn't- it just removed my angst for a while...and made the intolerable tolerable - until it didn't anymore.

If drinking really made both of us happy or feeling good about ourselves we'd have never looked for and found this website TWTOM.

if this one of your off work nights?
