I was gonna write a blog post about this but I'm really just feeling crappy so I made a mini-episode instead. I quit drinking today and it sucks. I feel like I'm dying. I'm going to my first alcoholism support group meeting tonight and boy howdy I'm scared. If you listen to the show you know I have two other support groups, so this is just one more friggin thing I have to deal with. But I want to. Because blacking out is scary. And I want to feel my feelings finally and face my freakin fears already.
I don't know what else to say. My heart hurts. If you like this thing feel free to email me at email@example.com - I will write you back, I promise.
Also, in advance, thanks for all the kind words. I'm gonna need em.
