Grateful Sunday #83: A Drinking Life & Early Career Drinking

Much of my memory of those years is now blurred, because drinking was slicing holes in my consciousness.  I never thought of myself as a drunk; I was, I thought, like many others — a drinker.  I certainly didn’t think I was an alcoholic.  But I was already having trouble on the morning after remembering the details of the night before.  It didn’t seem to matter; everybody else was doing the same thing.  We made little jokes about having a great time last night — I think.  And we’d begun to reach for the hair of the dog.


Undergrad is a bit blurry…but the rest of my life doesn’t have to, and won’t, be.
