I was talking to a friend yesterday about the underline uncomfortableness (not sure if that's even a word, but you get my drift) that sober people live with. I didn't even know I had it until I got really sick last winter and took cough syrup...holy crap, within seconds I felt the escape from that uncomfortable feeling. To say the least I threw the cough syrup out, before I drank the whole bottle...some can take it-I can not. If you've read this whole blog you know I almost lost my sobriety over a painkiller (there's another one, some can-I can not) Not only do mind altering substances disconnect me from the God that keeps me sober, but they sort of put me on this pity party frame of mind "why should I have to live with every fucking feeling, why can't I have an out, POOR ME!"
So... I don't drink cough syrup, take painkillers, or drink non-alcoholic beer. I don't eat things cooked in alcohol, use mouth was with booze in it, or drink fake champagne...like I said "Some can-I can not"
