SOBRIETY: A Message on Alcohol and the New Year

Here is a message written by one of the greatest men to have ever lived.  It is a message of truth and honor.

It was written on the cusp of New Year’s Eve in light of the loud drunkenness.  It was written as a reminder of his own growth out of the sewage and the sad reality of how events such as New Year’s Eve and Day facilitate enabling of people staying in the sewage.

Not everyone drinks to celebrate.

In fact, most people use celebration as a reason to drink…again.  They use shots of celebration as a portal into getting drunk.  They use the “toast” to a New Year as the impetus for the drama, the hangover and the fighting the next day.

I have been there!  I have been the one who has walked out on the one who used a celebration as a means to drink; to get drunk.

Here is to SOBRIETY!  Its not a disease.  Its not anonymous.

Sobriety is truth and integrity.

Not everyone drinking tonight will be drinking to celebrate. Some will be drinking to get drunk. A kind of drunk most social drinkers don’t understand. Be aware that if you’re drinking with them, you’re telling them that “it’s okay.”

It’s not.

Some people you’ll be drinking with tonight have a real problem with alcohol. It’s not your problem, it’s their problem and they are looking for acceptance and opportunity to drink openly.

If you know someone like this do your best to let them know they have a problem.
It may not make them happy but they’ll know you know.

A path of self destruction is a path of self destruction. The results are only slowed with bullshit, but can be halted with truth.  Being called out is a wake up call.

I know (I’ve been there).

You cannot hurt an addiction with truth.

Happy New Year 2020
