Mess Up big time

Wednesday, October 07, 2009

So, Monday night I figured I would go out for a drink with a few of my friends that invited me. Not a huge deal, I would just have a couple vodka tonics. Well, the last thing that I remember was being well through vodka and tonic number 2 and having taken a few shots that my guy friends bought. From there I went over to my friend Dennis's house and we went swimming and hottubbing which felt nice on my sore muscles. I ended up not going to work yesterday. I am really really disappointed in myself. I can never just go have a couple drinks and not end up forgetting most of the evening and oversleeping for work. I didn't even call me work! I am in an amazing job that pays me twice what most of my friends get paid, and I am just not showing up or calling. My boss wants a doctor note since I told him I went to see a doctor, but I don't have one to present to him.. I know things are going to work out with him, as he is a really good boss and really understanding, I just hate embarrassing myself like this. Disappointed again. I feel pretty depressed today, and am just waiting for my 3 day weekend to relax and get all of the stress off of my mind. Hoping the rest of the week will be ok..

    I know exactly how you feel. Thats just why I started this team and gave it the title "Wish I Didnt Love Alcohol". I was having the same problem. I couldnt just have one or two. I still cant. It just isnt in my vocabulary unless Im driving and its mandatory. Otherwise I end up just like you said, not remembering half the evening, and not wanting to go to work in the morning. I only drink on the weekends now. Maybe on a Friday or Saturday. I had to slow down. I was a bad alcoholic. I can sometimes go without drinking for two weeks, but when I do, I usually dont remember anything I did the next day. Its a sad thing. It makes you look at your life differently. I have no advice. Everybody changes at their own pace when they want to. emoticon

    You need to focus because it sounds that you have a great workplace and you certainly don't want to lose that. Try focusing on what to do next time and putting a plan together so you don't get caught in the same situation.

    I went through times like this where I neglected some 'life' areas and it's not a good thing.

    Take care and reflect and relax this weekend and make a plan to excel next week and WOW your boss in a GOOD way!
