Last Friday was the last time I drank alcohol. A pint of 80 proof Kamchatka vodka. I cut it way down with water to the point I could pound it in four or five ten ounce glasses. Yeah, vodka and water, the true drunk’s choice for low calorie kicks. All it did was make me stupid and lazy. I listened to some damned weird music and passed out for the afternoon with my pit bull. I don’t need another drug to make me sleepy. The doctors give me powerful tranquilizers. 50 mg Benadryl does the same thing to me as a pint of booze, but it keeps me from sneezing when I have to mow the lawn.
I have decided that at 60 years of age it is time to start taking care of myself. Alcohol is toxic. Smoke is toxic. Both have to be banned from my life. I got a good shower first thing this morning with some Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soap with tea tree oil to kill any fleas that may have got on me from the dog. I got to get some more varieties of that liquid soap and some face scrub. My friend Janell doesn’t think I am civilized. I’m not. It takes my best to be civil. At least I got some hippy soap to keep me clean.
So this blog I got is gonna go away, at least on its domain name. It will revert back to a free account. My first free WordPress account had just tens and hundreds of page views a day. I wrote about popular shit. Here, I write about myself. I am not popular. I get no page views. I think I will start writing about health, fitness, herbalism, magick, and various other topics that interest me.
A couple hours have passed. I have a cup of tea to drink and the radio is playing some terrible heavy metal song. I will have to take Junior for a walk in a few, and I still don’t know what we are having for dinner. I have been keeping to plant-based foods today to try and detox from my previous life. Also, it is the only way I have found to drop some of this fat the doctors have saddled me with.
I got so tired of the commercials on the radio I put on a YouTube mix. At least I can still block ads on that site. I am thinking I want quiet though so I can think better.
There, distractions eliminated. Now, I want to say something to anyone reading this: If you value your life, don’t drink alcohol. Alcohol makes people stupid. Ethanol poisons nerve cells, killing your brain directly. It’s bad for your heart and every organ in your body. If you drink, anything you eat will be stored as fat until the alcohol is gone from your body. If you drink, you are more prone to accidents. Nobody likes a drunk.
It’s been four days now and I still feel like I am in a fog from the booze. I’ve also been in a cannabis haze for the last week and a half, almost two weeks. Even though it was a gift it came with some strings of attachment. Heck, my friend suffers for her money and I don’t want her suffering for my bad habits. She suffers enough for her own problems.
I’m opening up on this journal. It is going to crash and burn in a few days, but it will still be here. Only the name will change. I got to find a good name for this and a domain that means something and is easy to remember. I have to coast along for free until the whole shithouse goes up in flames.
