Getting Back To Normal

Well good morning y’all! Wow! I have to say, that after a weekend of drinking, today is the first day that I feel kind of like back to normal. For the past few days, I felt like shit. And that only means one thing… that I won’t be drinking anytime soon for sure. I really must be crazy, to drink and then feel like shit for like two to three days. I mean, don’t get me wrong, at the time that I’m drinking, I don’t think about the hangover, I just think about the fun that I am having, but then, it hits me… THE HANGOVER!

I think that I am going to be sticking to reading books and watching old reruns of “Law and Order” and sitcoms that I enjoy watching so much. As for the drinking… I’ll live that to the professionals, because I really suck at getting back to normal, I really do. I mean, who in their right mind, will drink like a crazy person, then feel sick as hell for a couple of days? Well… a crazy man with a blog, that’s who!

Life Is Not A Cliché… Enjoy

Like I have mentioned before, I didn’t know how long I was going to stay sober. So I had a couple of beers last night, so what! You have to understand, that I like to be me, not what others want me to be. I stayed sober… or better yet, I didn’t drink for three weekends in a row. Just keep in mind, that I don’t see myself as being an alcoholic, I just drink way too much, when I get started, that’s all. What did I do when I drank last night? The usual… I listened to some old school House, Freestyle and Hip Hop music. You see, I’m not the type of drinker, who likes going to bars or parties and get into trouble. I just love staying home, playing or mixing some good old school music and enjoy myself.

My whole point is, that you have to be yourself… as long as you are not an asshole or a dick, then you are good to go. Go out, enjoy yourself, do the things that makes you happy. My only advice is… don’t fuck up on purpose! Don’t be an asshole! Don’t be a dick! Just enjoy yourself and have fun with the people who are around you. Hey look, we get to live just once and we have to enjoy it. If you’ve been reading my crazy and insane posts, you’ll know by now, that I feel like shit from time to time. But to be honest with you, I eventually look at the light at the end of the tunnel. I know that, that might be a cliché, but I have to say, that is the honest truth. Sometimes life sucks, but we can’t just give up when the shit hits the fan. If Phil Knight, Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos and others, would have given up when they were against the wall, where would they be right now? Just think about that one for a second.

Stinking Thinking

Sunday February 11th was the last day that I had a couple of beers, but I have to say, that I didn’t get drunk like I usually do on the weekends. I guess that what I am trying to say is, that I have been sober for sixteen days in a row. Whoo-Hoo! And to be honest with you… like always… I feel like Tony the fucking tiger… Grrreat! I have to be honest with my loyal 1.5 readers, but the truth of the matter is, that I did have a couple of thoughts about drinking throughout those days, but I just dismissed them as stinking thinking. I’m not going to say that I dueled on them for hours on end, they just lasted a minute or two, but that was it.

The truth is, that there are a couple of things that I don’t miss from not drinking and they are the hangover, the anxiety and specially the depression that consuming alcohol creates for me. Plus like I mentioned on a previews post, my wife is happy that I am not drinking, which is a good thing. You have to understand, that making my wife happy, is one of my main goals in life. I really have to say, that mentally wise, I feel fucking great, because I can think clearly and I am able to focus better at work. I just have to see, how long I can keep this up. Right now, I am looking to staying sober for at least a month or so. Who knows, once I get to my goal, I might go for a longer sober time. Fingers crossed though.

Staying Sober

I have to say, that this past weekend was my second sober weekend and I feel like Tony the tiger… GRRREAT! No hangover or anything that can make me feel like shit. Another thing is, that my wife has been happy too. She even went as far as saying that I was really doing good, by deciding not to drink for the second weekend in a row. Even though a couple of my friends showed up to play poker and they drank beer, I just didn’t feel like drinking at all. Also, even though I was bored to death, because there was nothing interesting on TV, I just didn’t feel like drinking. I also have to remind you, that I have been able to stay sober for four weekends in a row, without a problem. As to how long am I going to stay sober this time… I really can’t answer that. But I know, that it is going to be for a while, because I really enjoy waking up in the morning and not feeling like shit.

No Hangover The Next Day

I remember that after being sober for five years, I thought about trying nonalcoholic beer for a while. The way that I looked at it back then was, that since it tasted like beer, but it didn’t have any alcohol, it would be OK for me to drink it. A few people did tell me, that it was going to screw up my sobriety, because after having a few of them, I would want to drink the real thing. To be honest with you, I just looked at them, as if they were fucking crazy and didn’t know what the hell they were talking about. Well… a few years after drinking regular beer and finding out that my alcohol tolerance is higher, I look back and realize, that those people were absolutely right.

The way that I look at it now is, that even if I’m not getting drunk because my alcohol tolerance is higher, if I try nonalcoholic beer, I would want to drink the real thing, because I just love getting drunk. I guess, that what I am trying to say is, that no matter what, I’m really going to stay away from alcohol or anything that tastes like it for a while. To be honest with you, last weekend was my first in a while, that I didn’t drink, plus I just didn’t feel like drinking at all. I have to say, that my wife was surprised and happy. I mean, she doesn’t mind my drinking, she just hates that I binge drink. She tells me, that she is alright with me having just a few beers on the weekends, it’s just that she hates that I always binge drink, to the point that I go to bed crazy drunk. What’s the best thing about not drinking? No hangover the next day.

My High Alcohol Tolerance

I know! I know!I know!I know!I know! That I have said many times, that I will stop drinking, but you have to understand, that sometimes, I have friends come over to my home on the weekends, even though they play poker and I don’t, we have a couple of beers while having nice and interesting conversations. But first things first! I’m not an everyday drinker, I only drink on the weekends, plus I have gone four to five weeks without a beer. During those weeks, I’ve never had the urge to drink. With that said! For a couple of weeks now, I have noticed, that even though I drink my usual two six packs of beer, I’m not getting drunk… the hell! I don’t even get a buzz anymore!

So, just like any concerned known alcoholic… Yes! Yes! Yes! I call myself a known alcoholic and not an anonymous alcoholic. Why? Because everyone knows that I love drinking. Anyways! I did some research and I found out that there are people, that after drinking for a while, their alcohol tolerance changes. For example drinking a lot may cause liver enzymes that break down alcohol to become more active”. The way that I look at that is, that even if I only drink on the weekends, my body’s alcohol tolerance is higher now. The way that I interpret that is, that I have to quit drinking for good. I mean, don’t get me wrong here, plus I’m not going to lie, I’m going to be honest with you, I’m staying away from alcohol, because the drunk effect that I was always looking for, is gone now. So, what is the point in me drinking? To run to the bathroom every five minutes just for the hell of it? Nah! I don’t think so!

I’m Done With Drinking Alcohol

Just to make it clear, I only drink on the weekends and not on my work days. So, for the past few weekends, like most of the time, I’ve been drinking. But the one thing that I’ve noticed is, that I am getting sick and tired of it. For some weird reason, I just feel like not drinking anymore. I mean, what is the whole point of drinking? Getting drunk and then feeling like shit the next day? That doesn’t even make sense to me anymore. The one thing that I have been noticing about getting older is, that the hangover are lasting more… like a couple of days.

I’ve been thinking about quitting drinking for a while, but it’s just like smoking. If you hangout with people who smoke, it is harder to quit. So I guess, I’ll just have to stay away from my drinking buddies for a while. Plus, I know for a fact, that there’s no health benefits from drinking. I just don’t get it. Why do I drink anyway? I guess I just do it to “have a good time with friends”. But to be honest with you, I could have a good time while I’m drinking with them, but then the next few days, I feel like shit. I know that when I stop drinking, I will feel good healthy wise. Why? Because I have been able to stay sober for a month with no problem. I’ll see how it goes, but I’m more sure that I will stay away from alcohol for a while. I really do feel good when I don’t drink.

2018?… Big Deal!

I know that to my loyal 1.5 readers, this post might come as a surprise, since I deleted all of my previous posts and haven’t posted in weeks. To be honest with you, I’ve been busy with the only bad hobby that I haven’t been able to get rid off….. yes, get rid off….. and that is binge drinking on the weekends. I mean, previously I have been able to stop drinking for an entire month, but once I hit that mark, all bets are off for just one weekend at a time. In other words, I can’t seem to go over the one month sober mark, without getting fucked up on the fifth weekend.

The one thing about 2018 is, that I am planning on drinking less. Don’t get me wrong, it is not a new year resolution, because I really fucking hate new year resolutions, I find them to be fucking stupid and pointless. People keep making them and breaking them like if there’s no tomorrow. The way that I am looking at my drinking this year is, to limit it to special occasions, not just drinking every weekend just for the hell of it. To be honest with you, I feel that my age is catching up with my drinking and so the hangovers are lasting longer, if that makes any sense to you. Well, I’ll just take a chill pill, relax and enjoy my weekends without any alcohol or binge drinking. I have a whole year in front of me, I’ll just see how it goes.
