Take 100% Responsibility For Your Life Including Your Addiction to Alcohol


Hot tears track like lava down the side of my face. 

How could she do this to me?

Are the angels playing ‘Fortnite’?

I need them to see me; to see this travesty.

The pressure is intense. I feel like the Hoover Dam. Plain. Jane. Arms like thorny stems, tearing her apart each time I reach out for a hit of love. 

A fever starts to build. 

I feel like a slave, but to what, to whom?

My daughter tells me that she’s a turtle.

“I’m blind like a turtle, Dad.”

I tell her that turtles aren’t blind, try being a mole. 

Then I go back on the attack.

Or is it the defence?

Am I a mole?


I am certainly blind. 

I cannot see a way out of this mess.

The only thing I see is the bottle, like a Siren, screaming sense, manifesting meaning, puking up purpose. 

Why is it so difficult to admit that I am wrong? Why can’t I find that grain of truth? Why do I allow my beliefs to blindfold me, and my values viscerate me? 

Why can’t I take responsibility?

Full responsibility?

100% responsibility?

And that’s what we talk about during today’s podcast.
