The end of the end

Wow.. Im actaully writing a blog?

First off, I would like to thank you for taking a look at this. Let me tell you first off, that I am in no way an author, a writer, or a spell checker. So, with that out of the way, let's continue.

In this blog, I will show you how a 26 year old male will attempt to get sober, through the means of alcoholics anonymous. Now, I could write for days upon days about how and why I have come to this decision, but due to certain things that have occured in my life, there is no better time than now. I'm going in this completly blind, so of course I'm a tad-bit scared.

I live in a house with 3 roomates. All of which are guys who love to drink. Just about every Friday, Saturday, Sunday, 1 or all of us is drunk. My place of work has beer easily accessible, and just about every social event I attend includes alcohol. So, needless to say, I need to make some BIG changes in my life.

So heres the deal....
I'm already liking this blog thing, and can tell that it is going to become a bit habitual, even if no one reads it.

The end of the end:

I will be attending my first meeting tomorrow night at 8:00 pm.

Go, Kyle!!

Dude--get ready for the ride of your life. SObriety isn't the end of anything, baby--it's the beginning!

I hooked onto you at Mary Christine's blog. I'll be back. Have a great meeting tonight, and don't worry--all you have to do is show up, and AA will take it from there.

Please let us know how it goes!

Kyle, I'm an old guy, so I'll tell you what I say to EVERY beginner, that is...ummmmmmmm, ummmmmmm, what the heck, I FORGOT! -grin-

Also I'm the guy who grins a lot (it covers up ao much crap, you wouldn't believe.

Enough about YOU, now let's talk about ME. -more grin-

Sure, I'll be Bach!

Tonight, all you need to say is, "I'm Kyle, I'm an alcoholic, this is my first AA meeting, and I pass".

You don't have to tell your whole story all at once, bacause then you'd have nothing left for Thursday's meeting!

Come on and visit me sometime. There IS one important rule here: Rule 1. You do NOT have to follow my unasked-for advice. OK? -grin-
