there are people who don’t obsess about drinking?

from my inbox

email from Purple Robin:

“Just listened to lesson 1 a few times. Two main things:

  1. Was first listening to it while walking home from work, and one of my first thoughts was picturing myself having a beer at home listening. I mean really!!! Seriously??? Yup it is time [to quit]…

  2. I found the corn on the cob thing frankly totally unbelievable. You mean that some people actually think of alcohol as I think about corn on the cob. Really?? I had to listen to that a few times. Then I had to phone a friend who doesn’t drink much to ask if that was true. She confirmed, but still somehow I find that fairly unbelievable. And I love (really love) corn on the cob! But I don’t remember the last time I had it. Food for thought.

Thanks. Step one on the journey and looking forward to the next installment.”


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
