    I Don't Remember, I Was Drunk

    I Don't Remember, I Was Drunk

    Weak ass excuses like this shouldn't work on anyone, but for some reason they do — not on me, but most people. That's not your get-out-of-jail free card for being stupid just because you were drinking. You were still an idiot sober. All alcohol does is intensify the person you really are. If you're angry, when you're drunk you are horrible to be around. You become even angrier at dumb stuff. If you're a pervert, you get drunk and become even more disgusting and weird. And if you are sad because you just got your heart broken... stay home and get drunk. Don't come around me with that. A drunk crier is the worst to deal with.

    Alcoholism and the Blame Cycle

    Alcoholism and the Blame Cycle

    Have you noticed that the alcoholic appears to blame you for everything? You may have prepared the best meal, or overly cleaned the home, or made sure the children were all in bed before he arrived home. Still, there would be something he will pick at and blame you for.

    Stepping Away From Madness

    Stepping Away From Madness

    Many say when a person is intoxicated they tell the truth. I call bullshit! Everything a person says when they are intoxicated is utter toilet dribble.

    Wet Brain

    Wet Brain

    Wet brain is more than just an alcohol-soaked brain. Did you know that it is a very real and very serious brain disorder called Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome?

    Young Alcoholism

    Young Alcoholism

    I never thought I would call myself an alcoholic—especially not at 23. I figured I was just doing what everyone else was doing...having fun! But a few instances of my head in a toilet bowl and not remembering how much money I spent the night before got me thinking...maybe I wasn't doing this the way I was supposed to.

    Life by the Bottle

    Life by the Bottle

    As long as I could remember, my mom and dad hated each other, and I put emphasis on "hate." The type of life my brothers and sister and I encountered and lived through was terrible, to say the least.

    Passing a Bar (Rescue) Exam!

    Passing a Bar (Rescue) Exam!

    Let me start off this article by making it VERY clear that I am a teetotaler. That is, I NEVER drink alcohol. I don't stop anyone else from doing it, but it is not my thing. According to Wikipedia, "Teetotalism is the practice or promotion of complete personal abstinence from alcoholic beverages. A person who practices (and possibly advocates) teetotalism is called a teetotaler (plural teetotalers) or is simply said to be teetotal." For me, alcohol has more drawbacks than benefits. People get into auto accidents. Other can't control their emotions or bladders. And others get sick or generally act stupid. I can do all of that WITHOUT imbibing in alcohol. Thank you.
