I never liked to hear or read that drunken words are sober thoughts. If that were the case, I’d be a mean, judgmental, narcissistic as$hole. My drunk words told me and everyone else that I needed help. Alcohol could flip a switch that made me this way. It didn’t make me smarter or sexier or graceful. It highlighted my insecurities and “helped” me show everyone who cared about me that I wasn’t me anymore. Not after drink #6 at least. The person I am when the switch flips to a black out isn’t the person I was raised to be. I became more like Satan’s spawn. I don’t let anyone change who I am or what I do and say- so why would I let alcohol have that power? Happy Monday, sober family! Keep it simple today.
