repost: 13 lessons learned

By-the-numbers post from The Empty 12 Pack — another must-read blogger who takes his recovery seriously. To wit:

6. I realize that nearly every “close friend” I’ve had over the last 25 years likely has some sort of substance abuse issue. I cringed watching my best college buddy get drunker and drunker as the night went on Saturday. I asked my wife if I was like that. She told me that no, I was worse. Ouch.

Read the whole thing. I’m in there more times than I realized. I’m thinking you may be, as well, eh? Just a suggestion.

About greg w

I believe chocolate in virtually any configuration is the finest dessert in the history of mankind. I believe my wife is the sexiest woman in the world. I believe modern capitalism will never be replaced by a different -- or better -- form of economics. I believe in clutch hitting in baseball. I believe the Kimber 1911 .45 ACP is the finest handgun ever made in America. I believe the Mossberg Flex 500 pump-action 12 gauge shotgun is the best home defense ever made in America. I believe Tom Waits is the best song writer of my generation. I believe unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. I believe in equality for everyone, except reporters and photographers. As CS Lewis once beautifully wrote, I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else. I believe that, on balance, Christianity has done more good for humans than bad. I believe it is better to tell the truth than a lie. I believe it is better to be free than to be a slave. I believe it is better to know than to be ignorant. And I believe if I yell at the TV during a Colts game, they will play better.
