Welcome to the Jungle

What has alcohol done for me? It’s ruined relationships, my health, and my integrity. It’s made me spend all of my money at a bar announcing “shots on me!” I’ve lost phones, cars, and people. I was listening to some old Guns and Roses yesterday and when Welcome to the Jungle came on I remembered. In college my friend Adam and I were listening to that song, drinking Mad Dog and bourbon and cokes, and dabbling in some dry goods. We decided to take his tv and throw it out of his second story window. Which was closed. Glass shattered and I guess we thought we were Axl and Slash because that made us head bang even more. I’ll never forget seeing my friend Chris that Sunday after the TV moment. He said, in his sexy southern drawl, “I don’t f with you guys when you’re partying like that” and I told him that it was too bad he couldn’t hang. What I was thinking was that it was too bad that when I drank, I couldn’t hang either – not in the same way. I couldn’t ever have just a few. I couldn’t stop once I started. I couldn’t ever say no. I had to give it up all the way. No moderating, no maybe just on weekends, no switching to only beer or wine made me be able to handle my booze. I had to put it down and never pick it back up. Seems to be working ok so far. Happy Sunday, sober family! Keep it simple today.
