    But never do... :-( However I don't always drink to remove painful memories and such, at times it’s also for fun! When I’m hanging out the good friends, celebrating an accomplishment, after a good hard day’s work, you know stuff like that. It isn’t always...

    I'm Not An Alcoholic

    I've got a hole in the center of my chest that looks like a glass without a base. I've got demons buried under a pile of stakes and I stand guard with a bottle full of holy water that tastes a lot like vodka. Some people would say I have a problem, but, I'm not an...

    I Don't See Myself As An Alcoholic.

    I'm usually a very up-beat and happy person, but when I'm not, I'm terribly depressed. I'm so bipolar, hah. Anyways, I refuse to take psychological medications for a number of different reasons, and nothing seems to make me feel as good as alcohol does. I don't drink it, and then...

    I Quit

    I stopped drinking last year. I was depressed and it was the only thing that I enjoyed. Is that even the right word? Even though it made things worse in actuality and I had several hangovers from hell, I just had to have my drink. Feeling numb was good and the days passed by like...

    The Clock Runs Slow

    Its a teribble habit. But since friends, counsellors and family have turned away, I've gone back to the one comfort that is there, and is consistant: alcohol. I drink crazy amounts of alcohol in short periods of time. What else do you do when your options run out? You're drunk...

    Ok...

    So I don't drink because I never developed a taste for anything alcoholic. I don't smoke anything...not even the competition, and I don't do any drugs that haven't been prescribed by a physician. I used to eat a lot...then there was a period of time when I could put my face in...
