Alright Rigga - ta for that.........
Just wanted to clarify that I'm not facing alcoholism, just the realisation that drinking for drinking's sake, as Chopper said, is an "empty experience" - and down that road problems lie. It's not a journey I want to start on.
It's more a case of the temptation and the battle to resist it. Bad Things can happen after a morose session. Sleep is the more sensible option.
I wasn't directing it all at you, Jim, I didn't think I'd seen you in here in that mind-set.
Sorry for the confusion
And, like you said, morose sessions can make bad things happen. And, by that logic, if Einstein's right, a good session would result in good things happening. It's just that, until you know yourself, how can you be in a position to judge what's good or bad for you? If you're so far past society's definition, and you need a drink to get to the point of liking yourself, just do the right thing when you get to that point, instead of getting to the point of clarity and deciding "I'm a c*nt", "I'm a drunk", "I should be doing...", "If only I'd...", etc etc.
I got there by breathing, smoking weed, listening to music, and observing everything around me. For each a road...
I went and stayed round the mate's house the other night. Sat up all night, went through 2 cases of beer and smoked an absolute shit load! Left at 9 in the morning, with no sleep, absolutely sober as a judge. I only had a few hours last night, and I still feel great.
It's all in the mind.
