    crap, just crap.....sometimes i just hate these puters, flippen interwebs.

    I'm calling bullshit there search. I was quoting that post that intimated that alkeyhall sucked for sex. Alkeyhall don't suck for nothing, it is alkeyhall.

    If anything alkeyhall facilitates life, yes life is sexually transmitted. Take two people on male one female and transpose on them the thought that they both think they are ugly. put them in the same room and they will look at each other, they will pine away and what is accomplished? Not a fucking damm thing as it is all a would of, could of, should of diesaster. Add alkeyhaul and them two might just go OFF on a full court press of one on one...or two on one or....k, point made. Look I acknowledge I'm not here because two beautiful people got together and this love baby popped out fuck that shit, oh hell no. I'm here because two people tried to wear themselves out....and I suspect C2H5 is the medium of conveyance that accompanied the deed.

    well dag-nab-it i had a better post but went in search of a smiley and shit canned the thing....so this is what i have and no alkeyhall involved.....now where did i place that keg?

    Should You Count the Days since You Stopped Drinking Alcohol?
    http://alcoholmastery.com/should-you-...
    Should you Count the days since you stopped drinking alcohol? In my opinion, it's a good motivational tool for us in the first few days and weeks. In fact, it's almost impossible not to count the days. But what about once you are a couple of months or more into your journey?

    You Can’t Build Something New While Holding Onto Your Suffering Past
    http://alcoholmastery.com/you-cant-bu...

    I've noticed a few things on my trip back to Ireland. One of them was that the past is always waiting for you, the good past or the bad. It feels really strange to be back in Ireland. On the one hand I feel exhilarated because I am meeting my granddaughter, spending a lot of time with my son, and on the other hand I feel sad because I feel like I have stepped back in time. I associate living in Ireland with drinking alcohol, and I associate drinking alcohol a lot of frustration and bad choices. Take a look at this first video that I recorded in Ireland.

    Find Something Positive Every Day, Even When on Some Days It’s Hard
    http://alcoholmastery.com/find-someth...
    Today I wanted to talk about trying to find a positive in the days or months after you quit drinking. Looking for positives instead of looking for negatives. It's all very easy to look for and pick out the negatives, especially in those first few days when you are going through the hangover. You know there's an easy solution to this, you just go back to what you used to doing, to go back and pick up where you left off, to get a six pack, a couple of cans, whatever it is that you want, and all your troubles will go away.

    Here are a few of the most scary alcohol affects. I think they are scary because you don't know they are happening until they are already taking their toll.

    As you've heard me say many times, quitting drinking, at least the stopping drinking part is easy...It's the long term changing of your thoughts, rituals, behaviours, and ultimately your habits which determines how successful you will be in this venture.

    How do you fill the void?

    Are you filling the void with alcohol?

    Let's take a look...make a couple of important comparisons...

    It was very strange going back to Ireland recently.
    I went back to some of the places I used to drink, some of the places I used to work, and most of it felt like I had never left.
    I learned a few things about myself, and about habits in general, on this trip… But that's for another video. This video is just about my general feeling about revisiting a part of my past… Some of it welcome, some of it not so welcome.

    Here is some harsh advice I thought about posting and decided against it a few times. But what the hell, it might help someone.
    That fella's post above kind of prodded me to do it so here goes.

    To your friends, family, spouse, boss, co workers, neighbors etc. you will always be a drunk. Nobody will ever forget.
    Alcoholics, even if you were never arrested or caused any other trouble are looked way down on by society. Even worse than other drug addicts.
    All of the "that's so brave" and "we are so proud of you" is flowery bullshit. The only people who don't immediately see the scarlet letter on your forehead are people who do not know you.
    If that bothers you, if you crave being around people and enjoy people's company and respect you need to move. Relocate far away to another city or state.

    Start over and don't ever mention to anybody you had a drinking problem. If people ask why you don't drink say you wish you could but you think you are allergic because it always gives you a horrible headache or whatever.

    Only You Have the Power to Change Your Alcohol Drinking Story
    http://alcoholmastery.com/only-you-ha...

    Whatever you may think about your alcohol drinking, it’s a story that you have created. Each and every mouthful of alcohol has been consumed with your permission, with your knowledge, and with your acceptance. The opposite is also true. If you want to stop drinking alcohol, only you have the power to change that alcohol story. Only you can decide never to put another drop of alcohol in your mouth. Will you make that decision once? Or will you make the same decision over and over again, never following through, never fulfilling the opportunities that are staring you in the face.

    I wanted to do something new today, a quick review of a book that I've been talking about for a long time. It is one of the best books that I've ever read on the subject of quitting drinking. I stopped smoking about seven years ago by using this guy's book - 'Easy Way to Control Your Smoking'. I'm talking about Allen Carr's 'Easy way to Control your Alcohol'.

    This is not meant to sound pessimistic, but when you quit drinking, it's not enough to change your whole life… There's still work to be done, in most cases.
    I'm not saying that alcohol won't make a difference… It makes every difference… But, it's the behaviour that is to change, and that takes a lot of work.

    What is your original motivation for drinking alcohol? Why did you drink? Over time, drinking becomes ritualised…It becomes drinking for the sake of drinking…We forget why we started… We get problems with drinking, we drink to forget those problems… We forget how to relax without alcohol, to sleep without alcohol, alcohol becomes normal… We brainwash ourselves into addiction…

    What does living till you die mean? Before, that would have meant drinking, smoking, taking risks. All the bullshit excuses that I’ve heard since I was a kid. You know what I’m talking about… The guy who says that “you only live once, why not enjoy yourself” while inhaling toxic fumes into his lungs and pouring toxic liquids into his body…

    If that’s what you want from life, go for it…

    It’s not for me… I’m done with going around in circles, looking for solutions at the bottom of football. I’ve seen the other side and there’s no going back for me. Make the commitment. See how good this life is.

    Don’t waste another moment kidding yourself.

    How times change! At the same time, how some things just remain the same. One of the biggest insights that I got into my own mind, and my own habit formation processes, was going back to my original drinking roots in Ireland… It really knocked me back, being back on the old turf, walking down the same old streets, meeting up with some of my old drinking buddies… How much was the same? How much had changed? How much had I changed? And what lessons to learn?

If there's something you'd like to see me discuss on the show, let me know in the comments below, or email me directly here: kevin@alcoholmastery.com

    What is the logic behind taking a poison into your body? What Is the rationality of our alcohol drinking behaviour? It's traditional. Drinking alcohol makes us feel good. We drink because everyone else drinks-or so it seems. Because there are health benefits, it's sociable, or we are celebrating. In this video, I take a look at each of these areas of logic and rationale!

    I have actually done different versions of this when drunk friends insist I "just have one" with them.
    Works every time, never been caught either. It's way easier to fool drunk people than it is to argue with them.

    :2 thumbs up:

    I think some people drink to forget. Forget what they are? I have a problem. Yet it's all about perspective. Life is good. Enjoy it.

    Why will some people be against you?

    There are always going to be naysayers. People who, for one reason or another, don't like to see you doing well.

    Unfortunately, that's life.

    What are the reasons for this?

    Jealousy? Envy? You are leaving them behind? They just have a bad attitude?

    Life is too short to be thinking about why other people do things.

    Focus on you.

    Focus on what you do!

    Focus on getting better.

    Focus on you getting the results that you want.
