I’m A Weekend Warrior

TTV Weekend Warrior - 2

Good morning and happy Thursday y’all! Like always, I hope that you are having an excellent Thursday morning, noon, evening or night depending on where you find yourself at this moment in time in this crazy planet of ours. Also, don’t forget to enjoy your day to the fullest and please, do not let nobody fuck it up for you no matter what happens.

On a binge drinking note! About seven or eight years ago, I decided to take advantage of the alcohol and substance abuse program that my employer offers and so I went to a rehab facility in upstate New York for thirty days. The thing is, that compared to the people I met in rehab and in the few AA meetings that I attended, I started to doubt that I was really an alcoholic. Even some of the guys in rehab, told me that I was just what they call “a weekend warrior” when it comes to drinking. Don’t get me wrong, I know that I binge drink on the weekends and that’s not good, but that’s all that I do. I just like to stay home and drink with friends and family or just watch some TV, listen to some music and or have conversations with my online friends. Nothing more, nothing less. The way that I look at it is, that I might not be able to stop drinking when I get started on the few weekends that I do drink, but to be honest with you, I don’t see myself as an alcoholic. One thing that I can tell you for sure is that even if someone offers me a free case of beer during my work days, you can be 100% sure, that I will turn it down. Now if it is on a Friday or Saturday, then that’s a totally different story. The one thing that I know that I have to do is, to cut down on the amount of weekends that I drink.

With that said! I am Audi 5000 y’all!

My Weekend Drinking

TTV Alcoholism - 1.jpg

Good morning and happy hump day y’all! Like always, I hope that you are having a great Wednesday morning, noon, evening or night depending on where you find yourself at this moment in time in this crazy planet of ours. Also, don’t forget to enjoy your day to the fullest and please, do not let nobody fuck it up for you no matter what happens. As for work today, I will be processing government payments, attending a two-hour stupid quarterly meeting and I will also be the phone backup, when my co-workers go on lunch break. UGH! To be honest with you, I don’t mind the payments, I just hate meetings and the phone. But I gotta do what pays the bills.

On a weekend drinking note! Last weekend I had a couple of beers with friends and family, to be honest, we really had a good time talking about the good old days. But one thing that I can say is, that I didn’t binge drink like I usually do. Another thing is, that I have been leaving a space of a couple of weekends, between the times that I drink. Which is good for me, since a while back, I used to drink every weekend. To some people, it might not sound good, but to be honest with you, I think that I have been making really good progress when it comes to my drinking. My wife still doesn’t like me drinking, even if I don’t do it every weekend, it’s just that she’s afraid that I will binge. I don’t blame her, because I know that I don’t have a good track record when it comes to my weekend drinking. This time, I didn’t drink for three weekends, who knows, maybe next time I will go for four weekends. One thing for sure is, that I don’t consider myself and alcoholic, because I only drink on some weekends. I know that I put myself in rehab about seven years ago, but that’s a story for tomorrow’s post.

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