A tree falls in the woods..

.. but there is no-one around to hear it. Has it made a sound?
"You have *run out of* non alcoholic beer?"

You guys are great - well I assume you are, because I don't know who you are, or anything about you. Call it vanity, call it a need for validation, but I want you to get involved in this process- not the process of my life necessarily (god knows, run whilst you still can) but in the creation of a discourse on what it means to have an unhealthy relationship with alcohol, what it means to not, what your first blackout was like, where you woke up this morning, why you quit drinking, can you moderate, can you abstain. Is everything I write about the most foreign thing to you? Is it not possible for you to understand what the fuck I bang on about?

I'd love to hear each and every one of your opinions and stories. Even a non-story is a story.

I know that people are reading this - the hits on the blog are over 3400 now (you sexy people you!) and only half of these are me - but it would be great to create a public forum for discussion and it would mean the world to me to hear what you have to do. Please do comment on my blogs, or connect with me on facebook here, or twitter here.

Let's make it a collaboration, and let's make it mean something.


  1. Great stuff! I think you'll find a couple of your questions answered on my blog. :) I quit drinking (etc) because it took me to places I never wanted to go, cost me more than I wanted to pay, and kept me long after I stopped having fun.

  2. thanks for commenting, and getting involved - I'm headed over to your blog now! Cheers again :)
