About a month ago I made a post asking mods about changing my username, and the reasons why for such a request. It wasn't possible, without making a
new account. Since then, I haven't really been on ATS. Busy working and such. I won't really make this long. Many people here already know me, or at
least recognize me. I've made a few friends here but generally just stay on the outskirts. Not only that, but I honestly stopped trying to contribute
much other than stupid sarcasms and the like. Can't compete there, with some others here. But not the point..
I came to a crossroads about a month ago. Choose booze and drinking, and essentially continuing on being a mid thirties man child, or get my #
together. In the past six years, I've jumped from crap job to crap job. Nothing against these crap jobs, if you have one. It is what it is, and
sometimes you have to do what you have to, before you can do what you want to. So... lots of convenient stores and whatever. Lost every one because of
drinking. I'd either be caught drinking on the job, or known to have done it, but without proof. Shameful, lack of willpower, and all that goes with
Well, nothing against drinking. None at all. But for me, it got out of hand, and the reasons changed from having fun, to having a habit. Becoming an
alcoholic. Look, I know I will probably get lots of support from the great community here, but just to be sure, that isn't my reasons for posting
this re-introduction. It's more helpful for me to get it all out there with people. Even if I don't know them personally. Support and kind words are
of course always welcomed. I don't mean to sound like I'm frowning on them. Opening up with people will help me remain accountable to myself and
loved ones around me.
So anyway.. No more WakeUpBeers for me.
Also.. I know I've been a jerk to some people on here in the past.
DB I'm looking at you. There have been times where for whatever reason I let something you said get under my skin, and lashed out at you. I sincerely
