Mr. Canis Lupus

random bits from my inbox:

JI (day 80): “Sober. Getting close enough to the initial 100 day target that Mr. Canis Lupus has started the ‘ooh, if you wanted to you could have a drink or three once this 100 day thing is done — you worked hard and deserve it and it won’t cause you to go on nightly benders, promise (and oh by the way, your tolerance will be really low so you’ll feel great after just a couple of drinks again!)’ but we know better, don’t we? Silly thing. I think a post-day-100 springtime trip with the family is probably a much nicer target to aim for.”

Thyme:ย  “To quote John Wayne โ€“ ‘Life’s hard. It’s harder when you’re stupid.’ I’ve been stupid for way too long when it comes to alcohol. I was almost stupid today. Almost caved. But I didn’t. I wanted to keep writing that I was alcohol free another day. And I was. I’ve already got a run on tomorrow. Yes, thinking only about two days at a time really does work.”

Wanda T: “Someoneโ€™s voice is telling me I need to start a rigid diet and exercise program, train for a marathon, lose 20 pounds, go on vacation, write an entire book this month, paint my whole house inside and out, organize a complete budget overhaul, landscape the backyard, etc. etc.”

Shannonluvsdean (day 34): “Thanks for always replying ๐Ÿ™‚ Hubby can’t get his head around a real person would spend their own time replying to random people around the world. I guess there are some lovely people out there after all (or maybe I was just to drunk to find them before ) xx”

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

  • Love the John Wayne quote. I’m writing it down and posting on my fridge. Thanks. This blog has saved me in so many ways.
