    Dont blame you. Speed is the same, very fucking yes please. Exactly like alcohol you dont realise how far its gone till your at the bottom looking up. I was lucky I realised, many dont. Its always there going remember the laughs, remember, remember… Your job is to always remember the bad. I find it weird how your brain is all negative normally, telling you how shit this and that is but with drugs, alcohol or whatever its like yay remember the good times… Fucking knob brain.

    Great post. From one sober ultrarunner to another, just keep doing what you’re doing. Sobriety is like ultrarunning – the key is relentless forward progress.

    You’ve come a long way since you stopped drinking that special brew mate 😉

    Fantastic post! You’ve recognized a lot about yourself, made promises, and kept them. Seems simple on paper, but I know all-too-well how much it isn’t.

    This reminds me of a quote from the Irish writer Marian Keyes (who has a reputation as a ‘chick-lit’ 90s author, but who has written witty and profound novels about addiction). In her real life, she carefully explained to some relatives at Christmas or some such event why she wouldn’t be drinking, because she was an alcoholic. They appeared to listen carefully, then said ‘but you’ll have just one glass, won’t you?” They hadn’t listened at all.
    Responsible drinking for many people is no drinking at all.

    Another great post. Wise and honest and, as usual, brilliantly written. Nice one, Angry.
