The Weekend Warrior

It’s funny how I just went back to the AA rooms because my weekend binge drinking has been out of control for the last three years, yet I have been watching the TV sitcom Mom for many years now. You see, Mom is a sitcom about a mom and a daughter who live together and are recovering alcoholics and drug addicts. They attend meetings, but they go through a lot in their personal lives. I guess I like the sitcom, because I was able to relate or like they say in the rooms, I can identify with them and their everyday struggles.

For many years, I have been classifying myself as having some… I repeat, having some problems with alcohol, but not really being an alcoholic. The whole problem has been, that I didn’t want to admit, that even though I only drank on the weekends, I’m still an alcoholic, because all that I have to do is have the first drink and then all bets are off for a couple of days in a row. I guess, that what I am trying to say is, that I only saw the everyday drinkers as alcoholics, because I didn’t drink everyday. Even though I have been back to the rooms for a couple of meetings, to be honest with you, I have really been able to identified with others like me. I just didn’t want to admit that I’m really an alcoholic, because it is less harsher and it also sounded much better for me to say that I am a troubled drinker.

With that said! I am Audi 5000 y’all!
