    Horrible Experience

    I was in my early 20's and went to a party the night before, thinking I would just have a couple of drinks then go home. I knew I had to work early the next morning, but after the second drink, I was having so much fun that I had another. And another. And then another. Basically...

    How Do People Work Sober?

    My life was turned upside down when they introduced drug and alcohol testing at my work last year. It means I have to count my drinks and go to work sober which is ridiculous. The other day I thought I was fine, tested myself in the work toilets only to find I would was over...

    It was night shift from a big weekend and I was still slightly tipsy. Since my boss was nowhere to be seen that night (thank God) I was able to escape being fired. The person I was relieving thought I was just in a really good mood!

    So, I was four bottles of Woodchuck Amber into a six-pack (usually takes five for me to start to really feel it), on my first night off from work in two weeks, when work calls and asks if I can go in.  I think it had something to do with the snow that was plaguing my area...

    Job Interview

    for a nursing home whilst completely hammered on Glenmorangie (because I may have been a drunk but I still had good taste). It's too many years ago to remember how this came about - perhaps I had forgotten the date? Anyway, I got the job there and then (with many compliments on...

    Got Away Scott Free!

    I have to be on call for my job meaning that anytime the phone rings I gotta be ready to rock. Yes this is annoying as it sounds but I still go out and drink anyway. One night I was just about finished with a 5th of vodka and of course its work calling. I had to be in in only a...

    For you

    The call, the hunger. Beaconing, teasing, wrapping around my senses Insidiously filling my consciousness. An arm's length away. She is beaconing. The smell, filling my mind with vapours of anticipation. Sweet smokiness of golden generations. Like the...

    Not On Purpose

    My boss made the bold move to schedule 18-year-old me for a shift on New Years Day at 8 AM. Well, there was no way in hell that i was going to stay sober for the first New Years I could legally drink. So I did the only logical thing and partied all night long. I probably drank...

    A Trooper

    If there was ever a lesson to be learnt this was it. This was happened my first summer back from university. I moved back in with the parents over the break to work and save money. I returned to work at the coffee shop that I use to work at before I left for school, only this...

    That moment when you step in

    and realize your still drunk from last night. I made an inappropriate joke at the cleaning lady as soon as I walked in and was like, oh no, may still be drunk....
