aren’t you crazy tired of all this drinking nonsense?

It’s never one glass, is it.


Here’s what Pearl says (day 10): “I just went back and forth for about half an hour about whether to have a drink or not. Wolfie said, ‘just a glass of wine isn’t going to hurt, you can jump right back on the wagon tomorrow. If you don’t get drunk it doesn’t count’.  Then MY voice said, that one drink will not be just one and if it is, it won’t last long because it’ll wake YOU up, Wolfie, and it’ll make YOU become more of a tyrant come Sunday. So MY voice won. The craving is done. And here’s a little something that I thought of while I was arguing with Wolfie — I started this because I can’t moderate … I started this sober thing because I can’t take it or leave it. It consumes me and my thoughts and my life. It’s toxic for my soul and well being. So tonight, I’m not going to drink. Not now. Not tonight.  ~ Pearl XoXo”

​Step 1. Exit the booze elevator.

​Step 2. Stay (stay here, stay focussed, stay true to you).
​Step 3. Potential. Look around you. See the possibilities.

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
