AA seems like such a crock of bullshit. Who gives a shit how anyone else counts your years of sobriety? Why even bother counting them? Go talk to a room full of losers about how you have a problem with alcohol? No thanks. Just stop drinking and live your fucking life.

Not completely on board with this but I think it deserves to be discussed. Is AA a cult?

My one "backslide" after I stopped drinking was when I went directly from an AA meeting to a riteaid & bought a fifth of vodka after getting frustrated with the negativity I was hearing there. I haven't had a drink since that day. I do feel like meetings gave me a boost at the beginning but I think that people who center their lives around not drinking are still letting alcohol control their lives, and that the language used in meetings (like "stinkin' thinkin'") only serves to keep you vulnerable to addiction.

AA might work for some personalities. It will not work for Keith. In my humble opinion.

Sorry, I should have put a trigger warning. I was just wanting to make sure no Browns fans felt good about themselves.

Also if anyone is going 0-16 this year, it's the Jets, not the Browns. As a Lions fan I have weird mixed feelings about it. On one hand, it's our thing. On the other, it'll be nice to share that shame. Ours is sadder, because we were trying in '08.

I was happy to hear Libby ask if Keith felt he was being pushed to go to AA. Keith, I think there are many ways to not drink and you do the one that works for you. When I stopped drinking I didn't want to go talk to other people about it that I didn't know. My family supported me and that was enough, for me. You know the machines in pet stores that you can have your pet's name stamped on a tag for their collars? They would go make me one every month for the first year and have 1 month, 2 months, etc. stamped on it for me. You want to have an edible or smoke? Go for it.

Libby, it is polite to let someone know if you think you're going to be late and PLEASE LAUGH YOUR LAUGH! HA!
