I had the pleasure of a brief glimpse of a drunk woman on Saturday, courtesy of a movie we were watching on Netflix. She came home tipsily to live-in boyfriend from a party, after which relationship drama ensued.
It did not look fun. I remember that dizziness and unreasonableness and pissiness that comes out of an involuntary pool of scrambled brain after several drinks. That reality just doesn’t show itself in my environment very often. My friends either drink very little or drink moderately and it all seems rather sane. (Though I know that a couple of them know they self-medicate, and I strongly suspect that a few more do as well.) Day to day I lack these very helpful reminders of what it is I left behind when I quit alcohol.
Netflix is good for lots of things in earlyish sobriety 🙂
I am thankful for this rhythm of clear-headed days and for you all in cyberland — your wisdom, honesty, sense of humor, insights, loyalty…
Have a good one!
