Drinking alcohol -- at least the way I have been doing it -- is a selfish act.
When I go our drinking with my wife, too often I drink too much. I am
not a violent person when intoxicated -- I simply smile, curl up in a
fetal position, and begin to snore. Doesn't matter where, really --
could be in my chair, or by the fire, or on the couch, or in the back
seat of the car. But you can bet your bottom dollar that once the Jager
bombs begin flowing, passed out and unconscious is where I will be.
Meanwhile leaving my lovely wife to spend the rest of the evening alone
with her friends, wondering where her husband was passed out THIS time.
Selfish. Inconsiderate. Rude.
I've done it too many times, during too many events, and I've been rude
to too many people. For this, I want to apologize. I'm sorry, to all of
you. But especially to my wife.
Drinking alcohol is not a good thing for me. I realize that I can live a
perfectly good life without alcohol. I am aware that I may need help in
order to stop drinking. From this day forward, I will do my very best.
Pray for me.
