Some people don't ... but they don't live too very long either ...

If we don't like our lives the way things are, we must change, else all remains the same ... No matter if you hate AA meetings and/or despise them, something has to change ... go to some meetings and look for the person you most identify with and trust, and get this person to sponsor you ... work the program and change your life ... 'you'll be amazed before you're halfway through' ...


Love ya man and God Bless,
Pappy

Tipsy how about a different honesty angle....use won't instead of can't.  I tried the can't angle until I was led with the won't angle and I stopped....coming up on my anniversary of 2/879.  last  monster response I was given to being offered a drink was, "No thanks I've had enough".  In support.   (((hugs))) smile

I can now drink 26 ounces of vodka with hardly a stumble.

My increasing tolerance is starting to frighten me.

I feel pain in my liver. It used to be only after drinking, but these days it's always kind of there. It still flares up worse after a binge, but it never completely goes away now.

TM long time no see. Is that an honest inquiry or a provocative post?

"Those who do not recover are people who cannot or will not completely give themselves to this simple program". - Usually beause they don't know what the problem is, or they don't know what the solution is.

Hey Pappy,

I've been reading, and saw that you went through another round, glad that you made it.
I'm ok, blessed and lucky perhaps. Headed for the mountain tomorrow to open the place up.
You're welcome to join us anytime.

Love you brother, and thanks for the invite ... struggling to regain my strength, Doc sez it takes a year or more after last Chemo treatment to get back to normal, if at all ...

Been reading new book called 'The Plant Paradox' ... man, what an eye opener ... no wonder I got cancer ... you(and everyone else concerned about cancer) should read it ... it has most all the answers ... unlike alcoholism, cancer is curable without all that radiation and poison chemicals 'n stuff ... Wish I'd have found out sooner ...

I'll keep the mountain trip in mind and on the back burner for now ... (I only drive about once a week now, to the store or to one of the many Dr's) ...

Love ya man and God Bless,
Pappy

Sincere inquiry. I've quit smoking. I've quit boinking anything in a skirt. Quit driving drunk, picking fights, embarrassing myself publically, etc. I've managed to change my behaviour for the better in many ways...but I just can't give up the bottle. I can't seem to tolerate AA for longer than a few weeks and quitting on my own, well, we've seen how that shitshow plays out. 

 

So what's the deal?

I think that's plenty of reason to stop.

Only you can decide if you want to stop.
