Binge Drinking Story # 1

Back in the summer of 2011, due to my weekend binge drinking getting out of control, I decided that it was time for me to voluntarily go to an inpatient alcohol rehab facility for 30 days. Then when I was released for good behavior, I went to an outpatient program 3 times a week after work, for a couple of months. I do have to mention, that I did stay sober for 5 years. 

Fast-forward to 2016, me being the weekend alcoholic that I have always been, I convinced myself, that after being sober for 5 years, I was going to be able to control my weekend drinking. Boy was I fucking wrong! So, I went back to my old weekend drinking habits.

As a matter of fact, my weekend binge drinking got so out of control in the last three years, that my last binge in 2019, lasted 9 days straight. Yes, you read that right… 9 DAYS OF NONSTOP DRINKING! I even got to the point, that I was literally drinking mouthwash, to cover up the alcohol smell in my breath, from my wife. To be honest, all that I did during those 9 days was drink, sleep, wake up, try to eat, drink some more and repeat.

Trust me, I’m not proud of what I did back then, but hey, shit happens, and there is nothing that I can do to take all that shit back. But here I am, 1 month and 1 day sober.

Today I have Been Sober For 1 Month And 1 Day!
