(audio) the word ‘alcoholic’

i recorded a new podcast this morning. it’s about collecting seashells … but really, it’s about the use of the word ‘alcoholic’ … whether that word is necessary in order to quit drinking. And it’s about people who have low bottoms, or high bottoms (see my nice bottom?).

Or we can make it really simple. No quizzes online “are you an alcoholic? do you have more than x units a day/week/month/year?”

How about instead I answer one question. Do I drink more than I want to?

The full audio for the podcast is about 11 minutes long.  Here’s a 2 minute extract from the middle. Just before this clip starts, I was saying that as boozers, we have a lot more in common than we have differences.

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

  • I have not listened to the audio. so this might be off the mark.

    The word alcoholic is too loaded for my taste, and gives too much credit to the booze.
