A little while ago I posted about self medicating with alcohol or other drugs, and most of the replies confirmed what we can all guess: it’s not a good idea. Since then I haven’t touched a drop. I guess maybe 2 weeks. Surprise, life is still a steaming sh** and I still want to kill myself on a daily if not hourly basis. The only difference is without the alcohol, I lack the courage. Yay, a win for suicide prevention huh?
What kind of f***G life is this. Alive only out of sheer cowardice. No, I’m not “strong” and I’m not “hanging in there” and I’m not “holding onto hope”. It’s pure sniveling cowardice and there’s nothing honorable about that. So my friends I raise a toast. Here’s to liquid courage.
