Here we go...

While this is not my first attempt at a blog - I hope it's my most serious.  My husband keeps telling me I should be a writer.  What I can't seem to convince him of, is that I can't write!  I mean...I can write - anyone can write...I just don't have the talent that I see on blogs, in books in the many magazine articles that I peruse.  And mainly, and this is the real reason, I don't want to embarrass myself by committing something to cyberspace that may come back to bite me in the butt later.  There...I said it.  It's all about me.

However, after reading many blogs and books on alcoholism and recovery, it seems that "journaling" (which I've never had any luck doing) is a good way to make your way through and continue to be successful at recovery.  And since - and this is important so pay attention - after two years of going without a drink I have just decided to call myself an alcoholic OUT LOUD - it's probably a good idea to start doing what I've been reading about for two years...gee...ya think?

This will likely just be a stream of consciousness designed to help me get what rolls around in my head on a regular basis into something resembling sense.  I will try to do a few things -

  1. I promise not to whine.  I HATE whining.  In fact, even before I quit drinking my house was a "no whine" zone.  Get it - har har.  I may, at times, complain, bitch, moan and throw a tantrum or too but I will not whine.  If I do, you have my full permission to tell me to knock it off immediately.
  2. I will try not to rip off any of my fellow bloggers.  I reserve the right to mention them, credit them and be inspired by them however - they help me get through my day.
  3. I will try not to write anyone's story but my own. 
  4. I will try not to get my feelings hurt if you write mean things to me in your comments...however, on that I'm not making any promises.
  5. I do promise to share whatever I can that will help me and anyone who may be out there reading this get through the next 24 hours without a drink.  That's all we can hope for...
Now let's rock and roll...
