RE: AA - Atheists and Alcoholism
Have had a couple of slips since my dad died, I'm finding it difficult now that I'm out of the religious security blanket dealing with the non existence of my dad.

Nothing too original to say. Avoid that first drink.

Sometimes I feel like a good drunk might do actually do me some good. It's funny how the brain starts to downplay the brutality of bad benders. You yearn for that drunken numbness. Or at least I do.

It goes away Fred. Selective memory tries to put forth that it is a good feeling, only you really can't remember anything about the bender itself. The downside, the nasty things that I did, I don't forget them. They don't dim with time like the feeling of getting drunk does. The thought of drinking for effect would not occur to me now.

RE: AA - Atheists and Alcoholism
Sometimes I wish I could drink my day away. I still have the problems that made me an alcoholic in the first place. Taking the booze consumption out of the equation is a big improvement but there's still a lot of pain.

RE: AA - Atheists and Alcoholism
Well

I wake up and think living through this day is such a damn burden I wish I were back in the days when I would simply blotch out a day like this with a bottle of bourbon. I guess that's about it. Ultimately, it's worse but those 3 or 4 hours of borderline nothingness. Yummy.
