    One of the best books I have every read on Alcoholism is Under the Influence. It breaks it down from every possible angle. Talking points, not shaming points. At some point you have to decide to forgive yourself and learn to like yourself.

  2. Big up for writing about it, cathartic, this writing shit, isn’t it? Also, this January, if you’re gonna be on your own again get down to Brighton and I’ll treat you to a birthday Shakeaway. Who needs lager when you can have every sweet, chocolate and slutty treat combined into one? πŸ™‚

    Hey, another alcoholic runner checking in here. Running has been a great tool in my recovery. Keep on keeping on!

    I’m one of those ‘high functioning’ alcoholics. Not that there are different types of alcoholic, different flavours perhaps, but it’s still the same shitty addiction.
    I used to run. I’ve run four marathons. But I’ve drank more than I’ve ran.
    There’s not been a day I haven’t wondered why I feel the need to drink, I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m just too scared to kill myself. I think about that a lot.
    I’m working on things now. Not quite running again. Long distance walking helps. I’m going to start a blog.
