I drank alcoholically for 3+ decades. I didn't do drugs, though.
Well, I've smoked cigarettes for 35 years.
And marijuana for 33 years.
I guess I did poppers occcasionally. For about 25 years.
I suppose I also did cocaine and acid a few times.
And mushrooms and speed.
Oh yeah, I huffed for a while.
But really, I just drank.

that I was able to say NO! to my nephew's request for another monetary hand-out and not feel guilty for very long (thanks Scott)
that my former bf Hayden now has concrete travel dates set. He'll be staying with me for almost a month, arriving 12 days from now. There is still a lot of love and deep feelings, but I know and accept that we'll never be together again. This is HUGE for me and I have a lot of contemplation and praying to do and I told him this. (step 7 step 7 step 7 step 7)

Nothing lowers the level on conversation more than raising the voice.
