Saturday night a friend was in town visiting and invited me and my normal posse of 3 to a BBQ with him, his sister and her husband.
Now just if you are not aware I had not drunken any alcohol for about 5 to 6 months. However they were serving absinth which I had never tried and I made a clear decision that "yes, It is ok to have 1 drink of Absinth" at this point in the story I am fine with myself.
I then had a few drinks of water and Pepsi and engaged in conversation.
Now here is the part I have a problem with when offered a second glass of Absinth without hesitation or thought I said "yes I will have another" after having sobered up almost completely from the first glass.
Now I am not upset with the hosts they were being kind and offering me what was available and I did not feel any pressure coming from them or anyone else at the bar-b-cue and I am not the sort of person who would succumb to pure pressure even if I had. I am however very upset with myself for not even doubting to have another drink.
A few people have told me "I don't understand alcoholism, just don't drink" and to be honest I don't fully understand it myself but this is the best description I can give someone who is not an alcoholic. It's acting upon a pure instinct without any thought or hesitation to do something that any other time you know is wrong for you.
keep in mind I did not get "Drunk" "Wasted" or "Tore Up" and I did not even think about it in this light until after the fact. But it troubles me because now I feel like due to my reaction after the first drink which I had by choice I have to start all over.
5 months of sobriety all ruined by not thinking.

A reality tv show audience held captivated by entertainment… and enough C4 to blow up every and anything within 100 yards of this show if the jokers plan happens to backfire. ho ho ho hahahaHAHAHA
What am I referring to you ask? why the answer is simple Superboobs: A Super Hero Burlesque the new Gorilla Tango Burlesque - Provocative Parody For The Discerning Nerd show featuring a sleuth of your favorite Heros against The Joker and Harley Quinn as their latest scheme unfurls right before your very eyes.
The show is highly comedic as I have come to expect from the nerd based burlesque shows at the Gorilla Tango which plays especially well with the Joker and Harleys… unique relationship with each other and the heros.
The burlesque numbers showcase the Jokers plans to defeat each hero in a unique way based on whichever hero she is up against.
At the end of the show much like any reality television the Joker lets you vote for who you would like to win Good or Evil.
Superboobs is playing at the Gorilla Tango Theatre Saturdays at 10:30pm
