Good Tuesday, readers.
I don’t normally post only content from another source, but I’m making an exception here because I believe it is so succinctly presented, and um…David Bowie reasons, of course.
I love when the reporter asks him “So you don’t drink, not even a glass of wine?”
(Oh my lord, how many times I’ve gotten that question. If you ever want to blow someone’s mind, confirm to them that no, not even a ‘glass of wine’ – not even on a special occasion….)
And Bowie patiently responds with: “No, it would kill me. I’m an alcoholic, so it would be the kiss of death for me to start drinking again. MY RELATIONSHIPS WITH MY FRIENDS AND MY FAMILY are so good and happy for so many years now, I wouldn’t do ANYTHING to destroy that again.”
BOOM! Boom chocka locka BOOM.
Enjoy this little video. And God bless us, every one.

I heard about this David Bowie interview in recovery meetings and it so heartened me. I adored David Bowie. If he can be an alcoholic and never want to drink again so can I. I’m actually just celebrating 11 years clean and sober this month but doubts have started creeping in about 12 step which I’ve done my whole recovery in. But the fact is I’ve never relapsed since I got clean 11 years ago so it must be working! http://bit.ly/1ER5cLY
Sounds to me like you are doing FANTASTIC. Congratulations are in order to you! Just keep doing it one single day at a time. That’s all you have to bite off, one day. God bless you!
