More has been revealed ...

I came across some small diary-type journals that I kept back in my high school days.

Since getting sober back in 2003, I've said that I was practicing alcoholic since I was 17 years old. WRONG!!! I have have 100% proof that I began drinking at 16. I was passing out and having black-outs even then. I seem to have vomited a lot too. I even recorded how many joints I/we smoked each day. I'll now have to modify my Y.O.D. (years of drinking) to 33+ years.

So far, everything I was told those first few months have come true. Amongst others ...

.... things will get different
.... it will take you 1-2 years to detox
.... more shall be revealed

Part of the purpose of my sites is to help me piece together my life. Little things like what you found are scattered all around and I try to get their information into my little cyber world. Oh, and I backup backup backup! (I am a geek...)

Happy Saturday!

I have reconnected with my childhood friends in recent years, and it is amazing what I have learned about my own life from them! Talk about "more will be revealed"

Funny...I don't remember my first drink. Sad, I do remember my first joint (6th grade) - how old is someone in 6th grade? Anyway, I'm going back to bed.
I see you and the back of my eyelids too,

Connecting with the past helps to heal today. As the Big Book says, "we will not regret the past, nor wish to shut the door o it."
