I’m sure you don’t know this, but you’re an idiot

from Mia:

Thank you for helping me sort out my shit. I know, that could go in a card. Ha. You should do that for your store… Cards that we want to send but hallmark doesn’t make. 🙂  Seriously though…thank you.”

So this got me thinking, what other cards should Hallmark make that would help us explain what’s going on with sobriety, recovery, our hopefulness, our ideas on what the future brings.

I’d sometimes like a card that says: “I’m sure you don’t know this, but you’re an idiot, and someone has to tell you.”

But I could also have one that says: “Thanks for being my sober penpal. You’re part of why I’m sober today. Your crappy day 1 reminds me that I never want ‘one’ drink (I want a bottle). So thanks for that.”

OK, now it’s your turn. “I’d like a card that says …”

I want to put this online, to hold myself accountable. I want to document the noise in my head. I’m tired of thinking about drinking. date of last drink: june 30, 2012

  1. It’s National “Fuck Wolfie” Day! Spend your day doing something you love instead of something that will make you feel like a hot pile of crap. Best of all, this applies to everyday of the year. 🙂

  2. “You trying to make me feel like an oddball for not drinking says more about your drinking problem than it does about mine.

    if you ever want to talk about that – I’ll be here. love you, friend.”

    golly, I wish I dared say that in real life….

    1. hahaha. “Dear boozer. that you care that i’m not drinking is just your gigantic wolfie showing. and you don’t even know it. love, me”

  3. I’m nearly 6 months w/o a drink– Yay, me; thanks, Belle — but the last few weeks, I’ve been having “drinking” dreams. I’ve had three in which I drink some red wine, which was my drink of choice during my besotten days. In the dream, the wine is the finest I’ve tasted, but after I drink it, my first thought is, “oh, no….I just gave up my sobriety.” Then, when I wake up, I’m relieved that I didn’t actually drink.

  4. I should have sent Mia’s card to myself before I dove off the wagon last time “I’m sure you don’t know this, but you’re an idiot…”

    I should have sent primrose’s to the “friend” who poured and handed me a drink “You trying to make me feel like an oddball for not drinking says more about your drinking problem than it does about mine” or if I was brave enough Belle’s “Dear boozer, That you care that I’m not drinking is just your gigantic Wolfie showing, and you don’t even know it…”

    Poetsanswine’s “More Yoga Less Jaeger…” I am not sure what or who a Jaeger is… it reminded me of Mick Jagger and I could stand to see less of him.

    How about “Thank you for uninviting me to your BBQ that I did not even know you were having because I don’t drink—-Have a nice day…”
