Drunk Anything or Anger Whip Lashing, Very Rarely A Good Result

Drunk driving, drunk sex, drunk emails, drunk texting or drunk dialing very rarely if ever result in something good. People usually get hurt in the process. Bodily or mentally drunk anything is not wise. Relationships end, unwanted pregnancies occur and jobs get lost. Jail time for offenders due to fights or wrecks. Black outs and waking up in the dirt. Life being drunk only takes one very bad choice to change the course of all involved.

The same can be said for acting out of anger. Ever hit "SEND" and wish you hadn't? Or called and cussed someone out, only to realize there is no "takesies backsies"? Written a poorly worded email and trashed a relationship? Sadly, I have and it sucked.

I learned the hard way that doing things while drunk or angry is costly. Doing them while under both conditions is 10 times worse.

Now, you heard about that 10 second rule to help you calm down, but when you are drunk we forget about that and there is no way to stop an angry drunk from doing something more stupid than just being drunk or just being angry. They are DRANGRY and that is a bad combo.

I write many times to get things off my chest. I have learned fortunately, that not everything I write needs to be "SENT" or in this case posted.

Here is a tip for any of you that drink or get angry about something, stay away from electronics or cars for that matter. Need to blow off some steam get a pad and paper, write it all out. Then when you get 5 minute breather, go back and read what you wrote. Many times you will see the venom and trash it. But the good news is you got it out. Holding things in is not healthy.

I think I have screwed up enough relationships over the years by not taking the time to revisit what I wrote or popping my mouth off out of anger not to be able to take it back and that sucks. But hey, on the plus side, some of those people needed to be told off and they were not worth the maintenance.

The one thing I have had to deal with is other peoples choices when they do those stupid things while being drunk or angry, particularly my step daughter. 3 times she has gone out, gotten drunk, had sex with guys she barely knew, got pregnant and had 3 children as a result. Not very smart and not fair to the children, but we have dealt with it. We are always left to pick up the mess. Fortunately, the kids are sweet and they mind me and my Wife when we are with them, but you would think her daughter would get a clue by now.

None of the children have a normal mommy/daddy relationship and to a degree that is probably best for them, but ideally, it would better if they did. My Wife and I give them structure and discipline to make up for it, but I feel so bad for them, especially when it comes to them having friends that are able to have that "normal" childhood. Interestingly, enough they seem well adjusted in spite of it.

As I said, very rarely something good comes from drunk anything, we are still blessed to have our grandchildren. My Wife adores them even if she thinks her daughter is a moron for her actions. Thats what we do though, we loves those that disappoint us. I have written her daughter many times without hitting that send button out of respect for my Wife though.

Well it has been nice chatting with you all. Have a great day the rest of the way!

Drunk posting, guilty as charged.

You're correct of course. Lately I have decided not to post quite a number of responses after re-reading them. I simply click on previous page and it's gone in an instant.

Sometimes though one or two slip through the net.

Actually, it is not gone quite yet, until you close the browser, pretty sure it is still there, but the good news is you are all paid up!

I disagree- Drunk History is the greatest! But, it also serves to remind me how physically unpleasant being drunk can be, and I have avoided it for years!

It was probably whenever I was around the age of nineteen or so. My great aunt on my mom's side had been causing all kinds of problems in the family trying to manipulate people and trying to split up my aunt and uncle. She also verbally stated how little she thought of my grandmother etc. Around this time, my cousin decided to move in with my great aunt and cut off all ties with the rest of my family.

I was of course enraged at her betrayal and sent her a rather nasty message about her abandoning her loved ones to go live with a traitor and a raving lunatic (I'm sure my language was a lot more colorful in the original message). This resulted in us not communicating for the next few years and me not being invited to meet her newborn etc.

... Though as a disclaimer I was right... Her grandmother kicked her out a few months later and took her to court and tried to sue her for $1000 of things that she didn't do...
