I have not drank in thirteen years. But, I know that I can never drink as "social" drinkers do.By that I mean I can't go to a party and have one or two drinks. I tried that for many years. And, as the other guests at the party would laugh and enjoy all the fun chatter I would become more and more ( depending on what I cannot explain) angry or in some instances happy.

Friday, September 14, 2007 As a recovering (note I say recovering not recovered)Alcholic I feel I have

"earned" the right to talk on this subject.I have not drank in thirteen years.But, I know that I can never drink as "social" drinkers do.By that I mean I can't go to a party and have one or two drinks. I tried that for many years.And, as the other guests at the party would laugh and enjoy all the fun chatter I would become more and more ( depending on what I cannot explain) angry or in some instances happy.As soon as I drank the first drink my mind and actions changed.I lost complete prespective on people, places and things.

I spent many years embrassing my "ex"-husband.I laughed louder, talked more and talked over other people trying to converse with one another.And, most or many instances didn't know what I was saying or talking about.But, I was sure my thoughts were the only correct ones.And, only the next morning when told what I had done or said would the shame and embrassment come.

And, that move gave me the right to drink. How dare my husband take a job in another state.I had two beautiful sons in full bloom of adiciton. But, somehow was blessed with two normal sons.One is now teaching at a college in Germany.He's givien a concert for the Queen of England and Prince Charles.And, done many oth...
