My Reprimands – Part 4

I wrote some amends letters after my reprimands of SD2 and the last one was to myself (second person to first person,) and I ended it with this: “Is that all? You done now?  Because I can think of some messed up stuff you did to other guys too, or have you forgotten?  I hopeContinue reading “My Reprimands – Part 4”

My Reprimands – Part 1

Reprimand(s) #1 – February, 2005: The Drunk Tank and Community Service Highlights from my arrest, “the tank” and community service: Cuffed and chatting* with the young officer en route to jail, I BRIEFLY considered offering him sexual favors if he’d just let me go.** I said brief, people. It was like “I wonder if…” and then aContinue reading “My Reprimands – Part 1”

The Reprimand Series

All of that drunk driving I did eventually caught up to me…twice…and I’m lucky it wasn’t more. I’m even luckier that I never seriously harmed or killed anybody or myself.  I swallowed the bitter pills of humiliation and shame as I went about righting my wrongs. I paid my debts to society by spending aContinue reading “The Reprimand Series”

Reprimands Avoided – Bullets (with Balls)

Reprimands (past): Many bullets dodged and not enough lessons learned. If there was a game called “let’s see who can dodge the most bullets in life,” it’s safe to say I would have dominated the competition. Remember that cheating scandal I told you about and how I was mad that I wasn’t in on theContinue reading “Reprimands Avoided – Bullets (with Balls)”

Skeletons 2.10 – My Recovery Revealed

Revealed: It is easy to let up on the spiritual program of action and rest on our laurels. We are headed for trouble if we do, for alcohol is a subtle foe. (BB, pg. 85) I remember the first time I learned that smoking pot was a no no in the rooms of AA. IContinue reading “Skeletons 2.10 – My Recovery Revealed”

Skeletons 2.6 – My Recovery Reflection

Reflection (past) – Hindsight is 20/20…sometimes. Sooooooo, we decided it was a good idea to go to Las Vegas for Easter weekend 2018. Easter weekend in Sin City? Really? Yes! With the kids? You know it!  We needed to get out of dodge. H suggested it and I said “hey, why not?” The plan wasContinue reading “Skeletons 2.6 – My Recovery Reflection”

Skeletons 2.4 – My Recovery Responsibility

Responsibility (past & present): “Every time you point a finger at someone, there are 3 pointing back at you.” – Unknown My favorite game to play in life has been the “blame game.”  Call me out and my go to reaction is more often than not, defensive. I will go to great lengths to justifyContinue reading “Skeletons 2.4 – My Recovery Responsibility”

Skeletons 2.3 – My Reckonings

Reckonings: “Most of us have been unwilling to admit we were real alcoholics. No person likes to think he is bodily and mentally different from his fellows.” (BB, Chapter 3) I’ll never forget a moment that occurred while talking to my sister on the phone.  It was day time. I was drunk and I rememberContinue reading “Skeletons 2.3 – My Reckonings”
