  • My voice is getting too harsh.

    29 Sep 2014 | 8:07 pm
    I’ve been missing in action so much and I’m sorry. My body is falling apart and it’s becoming increasingly distressing for me to even consider thinking about but this is the harsh reality of it. All these years of Lab ratting myself what did I expect? Did I expect to wake up and be glowing and shiny, stretching as the sun shone threw a crack in the dark curtains, the outside world basically pleading I show myself and my achievements. Did I expect people to walk by and turn to gold? Did I expect my body and mine to flourish as I skip down the road? The worst part is, I…

    Day two here we go, now there is really no worry about binge drinking today because it’s the middle of the week and the nature of the beast is that you get hammered more so on the weekends. I hope to be less fearful of that now though and plan to use the neurolinguistic programming technique I have been introduced to by the therapist in the youtube clip here. I know what you are thinking, “i hope she has her own therapist! not just one from youtube” and i am actually on a waiting list which seems to have been going on for ages! I will have to call and nudge them today. I woke up…

  • My biggest motivation for Step 1

    20 Oct 2014 | 8:41 am
    Today, my husband, John, turns 35.  When I met John, I was in love with him instantly. And I mean instantly. We had one of those whirlwind relationships. We met in the summer of 2010, we were unofficially living together by Christmas of that year (meaning, I think we spent as little as two nights apart per week), officially living together in fall 2011, engaged in winter 2012, and married in spring 2013. What a wonderful four years this has been. Sometimes I look at John and can’t believe how lucky I got to find him in my chaotic world. As I’ve said, I grew up in a…
  • Letter: More alcohol education needed for youth

    Chris Hanna, Montreal Gazette
    20 Oct 2014 | 8:32 am
    Re: “Ottawa should step up battle on alcohol abuse: centre” (Gazette, Oct. 20) While not all students take part in alcohol-laden activities, these kinds of festivities are a staple of many university experiences and student-association parties. Drinking at the age of 18 in Quebec is legal, but it can also be lethal. Many at that age are not yet fully developed and are not equipped to assess risk and risky behaviours. Until someone in your family is directly affected by alcohol in some way, innocently or not, it is just labelled a socially accepted mind-altering substance. I am…
  • “Look at your feet” – Words from Raymond Scott

    20 Oct 2014 | 7:02 am
    All my sponsor, Lonnie S. needs to say is “Raymond, look at your feet.” And I know right away what he’s telling me. These words were given to Lonnie by his friend in recovery, Dr. John Mooney, 35+ years ago. To understand the meaning of these words, it’s important to understand the context in which they were given. Dr. John would visit Lonnie in jail, back in the day before Lonnie got sober. He’d listen to Lonnie talk on and on – about his feelings, thoughts, and plans and intentions for the future. Dr. John would listen and then patiently, lovingly reply with this phrase: “Look…

    As long as I look at the Steps as chores, my results will vary, and the promises will mutate.  I find I can become just as amazed in the opposite direction, even though I’m not at the halfway-through point yet.  I’m sure that doesn’t make much sense, but that’s as close as I’m going to get making heads or tails out of why some days are nothing but a series of struggles with myself and my serenity. Step 1:we admitted we were powerless over alcohol – that our lives had become unmanageable. Doing the next right thing can’t be the only thing I do.And the thought of daily…
  • The Tosspot of That Tiny Town: from Tippler to Teetotaler

    20 Oct 2014 | 6:29 am
    Alcoholism is a major problem in every household that it exists in. Here is the story of a friend; recorded and edited by yours truly.            The first time I drank alcohol was when I was 14. Big deal, because I’m a girl and I live in India. I was friends with a lot of people. Most of them were boys elder to me (I was what you would call, promiscuous). And one evening, they introduced me to Liquor. “Liquor is amazing,” they said. “Be friends with this guy, and your life is set. Seriously. He has the solution to every problem. Go to him in the middle of the…

  • Bromaggedon at Keene Pumpkin Festival

    20 Oct 2014 | 4:28 pm
    We have all seen riots related to sporting events, and they are usually fueled by a big win, or loss; and of course alcohol.  Take away the emotions of the win or loss and you would think it would nullify the added ingredient of alcohol; but you would be wrong.  All it really takes is alcohol.   Copious amounts alcohol can and did turn what would ordinarily be an innocent family oriented pumpkin festival into a town wide emergency; complete with overturned cars, burning dumpsters, police in large numbers wearing SWAT gear, tear gas, and bros fighting bros.  This all went down over the…
  • Drunken Zombie Santa

    It’s not even close to Christmas, but that doesn’t keep drunk zombie Santa from making the rounds.  As expected this one involves college students and bars, many many bars. An intoxicated stranger dressed as a zombie Santa Claus terrified two teenagers when he entered their St. Paul home over the weekend. A 14-year-old boy fled from the Macalester-Groveland house to get help and his 16-year-old sister locked herself in a bathroom, said a neighbor, Margaret Marrinan, who is also a Ramsey County judge. “This guy ought to be examining his conscience … for what he did to…

    When it comes to heavy metal songs about drug addiction.  This is the gold standard in my opinion.  No veiled references here; it never mentions the substance and that doesn’t matter, when your addicted they are all the same.  The song, as lead singer James Hetfield explained, “deals pretty much with drugs. How things get switched around, instead of you controlling what you’re taking and doing, it’s drugs controlling you.  During an interview on NPR‘s Fresh Air, Hetfield stated that his wife had helped him to mature and learn to deal with his anger issues…

    I thought this chart would look even more drastic if the top 10% drinkers intake was kept to one column, so I re-imagined it. The graph and comments come from  data journalist  Christopher Ingraham via  The Washington Post  The figures come from Philip J. Cook’s “Paying the Tab,” an economically-minded examination of the costs and benefits of alcohol control in the U.S.

    Foundation of Life.  Triangle, Geometry, Quantum Physics. I am aware of the terms of psychology, this awareness has been ages of indoctrination.  Tell me what the definition of Locus of Control”  is, all the while, distancing me from its form.  I know what locus of control means.  I know how to play it out.  I also know how to counsel others on how to achieve control, within their own lives. Causing “locus” to rear its beautiful head, in my life,  has become a decade long challenge.  “The dark seeks out, my name.”  The dark has always sought me/called…

Yes to infinity. Drugs and drinking gave me a way out of the misery that everything is momentary, fleeting, diminishing as soon as it starts.
