Blotto & Minty

Anchorage has a problem with chronic inebriates – and mouthwash isn’t helping any.

It's a terrible problem, when I lived in Canada it is a huge problem. They stopped selling it in certain parts of the city I lived in. And any time you took the city bus it reaked of it.

YOU are not a chronic inebriate. YOU are much stronger. Don't let yourself down.

Remember sir, moderation is the key to success.

I think that you know in your heart that drinking mouthwash as a substitute for regular alcoholic beverages is NOT moderation.

I also think you know in your heart that having your father regulate your money so profoundly stringently is also NOT moderation.

I also think you know in your heart that anonymous individuals who chastise you about your grammar are simply trying to get your goat. Grammar is an important aspect to successful communication, but to expect 100% problem-free grammar... especially on a blog... that is NOT moderation.

I am sure you can see my message here... MODERATION. If you were to do ALL THINGS in your life moderately... there would be very little anyone could find fault with... including yourself. You are your own harshest critic at times, sir.

If I had a magic wand, I would ask you first, but presuming you said it was ok, I would wave that magic wand and change your designated payee, and wave another wand to have you live MODERATELY for four weeks... so you could see how much different that middle ground feels. But, there is no magic wand. Instead, all I can hope for is for you, my friend, to force yourself to adopt moderation for a few weeks, so you can prove to yourself how safe, comforting, and beautiful it can be.

the last line was esp. interesting:
"where there's a will, there's a way."
and addictions do drive that "will".
