Anthony Patrick CanforaNo Need to Drink Jealousy

This past Thanksgivukkah, the rarity of the holiday mashup was strong enough to knockout my drunkenness of being under the influence of jealousy. So far, it has been about 5 months since got sober and hope to keep myself sober for a long period of time. 1 week ago

Being BrynInternet dramz: or, not everybody understands how hard it is to not drink.

I was part of a close-knit secret group, and apparently one or two other members who were recovering alcoholics asked the moderators if people could put pictures of bottles of wine and cocktails, and discussions of excessive drinking, under a trigger warning or a “cut.”

I appreciated the suggestion, because while I like these people, they LOVE TO DRINK, and sometimes being confronted with a whole page of DRINKING DRINKING DRINKING rouses serious temptations in me. It all looks so delicious and fun…

Most people in the group scoffed at the suggestion and thought it was ridiculous. I wouldn’t have minded if they had said no, but some of the things they said were so spiteful and dismissive that they hurt my feelings quite a bit. They know my story: alcohol exacerbated my depression and led to strong suicidal urges. It was a terrible part of my life.

So this is another group I’ve left. It’s just as well, because I am working every day at my goal of limited Internet time, and that group can be a time suck.

It just makes me appreciate all the more what an understanding, sensitive, and wise community 43T is…my corner of it, anyway. It’s really something special and I really appreciate everybody here
