Sorry I haven’t posted about this. I know this sounds crazy, but I’ve just been so busy lately (first with a lung infection, then catching up on work), that I just plum forgot I’m a recovering alcoholic.
And that about sums up this recovery update. I forgot I’m a recovering alcoholic. I forgot I’m addicted to alcohol.
Still haven’t touched the stuff, though. A friend called today to ask if I had any Scotch for a party, so I said I did. He came by and I gave him my last bottle of Lagavulin 16.
And when I was handing it to him, I didn’t have any regrets, or feel anything other than wanting him to leave as quickly as possible so that I could get back to work.
Meanwhile, since recovering from my second lung infection in 2 months, my creativity has skyrocketed. New songs on the go, new books being drafted, all sorts of things in the works.
Yes, I’m considering a podcast. In the online poll, there were 43 votes – 86% said they wanted a podcast. With that in mind, I’ll be speaking to a producer later this week to find out how much this will cost me.
