This is the famous poop truck video for One Minute Message subscribers.

some of the comments received:

DB: “I just watched the poop video message. Wow that was hard hitting. It’s one of my greatest fears about carrying on down that escalator; my family having to compensate for my shortcomings and clean up the fallout of my life.The words unpredictable and unreliable are tough for me. The total opposite of what I want to be. I want to offer my family consistency, homeliness, safety, security. It makes me want to be on this sober journey forever. It was really very good and it will stay with me. I think I need a bit of harsh tell it like it is stuff. Because this whole drinking too much is really, really serious.”

ScrubJay: “I watched the Poop Truck video today. It was pretty powerful, especially towards the end when we see the ambulances and the poop truck. A good analogy for our lives when drinking.”

Tia Maria: “I had to watch this twice for message to sink-in.  If a picture is worth a thousand words, then this video must be worth a million. I saw myself up on that horse and then had to reflect on who was driving the poop truck while I was drinking.  My husband is still riding that horse so I am now driving the horse ambulances behind him and trying to dodge some of the poop.  But I know that I can drive those ambulances day or night without being impaired (such a blessing!).  I also realize that through the years, I have had various friends (as well as DH) who have acted as enablers and went along with driving the poop truck behind me even if I felt like a street cleaner the next day with a hangover and picking up garbage from the night before. Thanks for all of these profound one minute messages!”

New Chris: “I love this!  Never would I have come up with the idea/analogy of all the people needed to clean up our shit when we’re drinking..but it’s SO true!  And scary when you think about the ambulances and real serious problems it can cause. I’m forwarding to a friend that keeps screwing up and hoping this different angle helps her.”



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
