KATB episode 1: Keith is a drunk

I cringe when I listen to this.

I could understand if she wanted him to spend more time with her, rather than on the chat. I could understand if she was upset that daily tasks weren't being addressed.

I don't understand why she would attack his character by accusing him of being a generic alcoholic, rather than specific things that make her feel alone or incomplete in the relationship.

Why attack the person when you have a problem with specific things they are doing?

Drinking is fun. Keith is a drinker. If Chemda feels left out, there specific reasons for it and the broad topic of drink likely doesn't describe it. If Keith has been drinking more and running away to spend hours in the chat there are probably issues that he has with Chemda that he doesn't feel confident enough to address. Were talking about a woman who at one point said that their five+ year relationship would be in trouble if she didn't get to have a lesbian relationship on the side. I'd have trouble expressing my issues to her too.

you're only an alcohilic if you can't not have a drink - not if you drink too much.

no one reads me . .
Chemda needs to out-drink keet, a challenge just like the triathalon, a few solid weeks. When he sees her a blithering mess he'll have a moment of ~ nah, prolly not, he's too self absorbed, it'll just be a joke.

To be clear, it's not a joke when I talk to and about you. You really do make everything creepy. (That's your denial.)

I feel bad for Chemda because her boyfriend is an alcoholic and doesn't give a shit. I think I'm taking a break from listening.

DrinkTracker iPhone App

I'm still drinking too much, but now I downloaded DrinkTracker for my iphone. Before my BAC was just something that happened. Now I can enter all my drinks and its like a video game.

I'm currently a 0.06, safe to drive

I loved this show. The awkwardness reminded me of the Max episodes.

Keith, just think of all the new material you'd get from attending AA meetings. AA Monday?

No shit. The only way for Keith to effectively deal with his alcoholism is to want to quit, and join AA or some twelve step group. THERE IS NO WAY IN HELL he would do that. You can hear the disgust in his voice for groups like that. He'd have to stop all drinking immediately. He has no respect for Jess Joyce soberness and talks to JJ and other "sober" alcoholics like they are in a cult.

Chemda, if she didn't want to enable this,would have to quit the show to show she is serious and go back to clowning and/or ask him to leave until he cleans up. The only way to show she is serious is to make it hard for him to do the show.

But none of this will happen because that is no fun.
