fuck, that sounded like the mike mo story only without the golfcart, best of luck to the recovery man.

Thanks ducky!

Life looks pretty grim at the moment so any kind words are truly appreciated.

Its a long fuckin day when when you bed ridden.

But many people have it worse, I feel for them thats for damn sure
yeah i feel that, i feel down on myself occasionally but i realized people have way worse conditions than i do and they make it work, which im trying to use get that to motivate myself to do better, but i dont know, sometimes it works other times it doesn't. it's fickle like that.

Trying to quit drinking.  I have been doing the AA thing for years on and off.  I like it, but it wasn't enough.  I kept drinking around meetings, getting a few weeks sober here and there. I signed up for a local program where you can't drink at all.  They piss test you randomly and do that test were they can tell if there has been alcohol in your body for like 3 or 4 days.  It's weird, but I need it.  Such a strange feeling to know you can never drink again.

I'm thinking of adding something like Antabuse (Pill that makes you really sick if you drink), but I'm afraid I'll get it and never take it.  There is also a shot you can get that really lowers cravings. 

I know it will be for the best in the end.  My longest time of abstinence in the past 5 or so years was 68 days.

Buying a house.  It should be a decent investment, but it's so expensive to maintain vs an apartment or condo.  Plus things like keeping up the lawn.  Little things are always breaking and shit.  It also takes a lot more effort to keep clean, b/c of the size.  We were trying not to buy too much stuff, but it really is true that people row into their space.

lampshade, what is the consequence if the program finds out you drank? good luck w/ that and getting a house. took me a bunch of 30 days here, 7 months there before i quit drinking. i think the fact that ya made a few months once means you're on the way. just gotta find something else to do compulsively.

Get er done lampshade! If youve done 68 days before youll be fine.

Like mentioned just find other stuff to bide your time

If ya get the house maybe what you think of as downsides will end up being enjoyable and help keep you from drinking?

Myself im nervous as fuck right now. I get my MRI results of my knee injury tomorrow. I guess im just anxious to find out how bad it is and what needs to be done to fix it

No real consequence.  I think you just get booted out of the program.  It is voluntary.  I like AA, but it's so easy to just say, "F-It" and quit going for a few weeks/months and stop calling people.  It's also too easy to drink around going to meetings.  A couple weeks ago my sponsor called me out after a meeting for smelling like Vodka.  He was cool about, but I was pretty embarrassed.  

I need to find an activity I am really into (besides skating).  I think all the years of drinking has made be kind of boring and apathetic.  It was a little surreal after signing up and walking out and seeing all the stores and bars in my neighborhood.  

It's just time for the change.  It will be strange the first few times going out to dinner or watching a sporting event with friends who are drinking.  Thankfully, most of my friends are married and kind of past the party animal phase.  I just don't want to be one of tose dudes who only hangs out with sober people.

I'm still hurt (not stoked) but I went to skate today to see how better I was... I still feel my push foot weak but I used my Blazer hi's fully tight to feel safer and managed to land lots of stuff I thought I couldnt yet. My flatground game is decent, I can do flip tricks again, just switch/nollie flips are harder and hurt a bit. I'm stoked on that tho. I hope that in 1 or 2 weeks I'm fully healed.

Things that I'm not stoked on but I got stoked on but now I'm not stoked on... my battle against androgenetic alopecia, truly the most woeful ailment of our times and the defining struggle of my adult years, combined with a bad hair day, made me feel like shaving my head bald again. It was quite a while since I last shaved my head. I did it before heading to work, and was pretty proud of myself and happy with the result, and wondering why I didn't do that sooner.

The thing is... now I'm with this big-ass zit, probably an inflamed follicle, and I have to let the scalp rest for now. So I'm stuck with a buzzcut and this tired-looking receding hairline. My hair is getting pretty thin in the middle, I'll have quite a respectable horseshoe before I'm 30 at this rate. Going bald sucks.

yo, that sucks to hear, 20matar. i harvested some propolis [bee glue] and supposedly it grows hair on mice [mice aren't bald but...] like it regrows shaved mice faster than normal and apparently stimulates follicle growth. i've got a few nip jars of vodka/propolis mix and if i find that it works i'll lace you.
the recipe calls for everclear or rubbing alcohol but vodka was the strongest pure liquor at my package store so hopefully it's sufficient enough solvent.

Told my crush I liked her. Didn't get the most favorable response but, at least she doesn't remember so things aren't awkward between us. Hooray for alcohol?

lol, I'm just going bald and it's OK. But maybe I should try propolis. I know it's great for throat issues... and I know my throat really acts up sometimes. I don't ever consider taking anti-hair loss medication because of the horror stories that I hear about people never getting it up again and stuff like that.

I've moved back to Oslo, which I am stoked on to finally be with my dawgs again.
Not so stoked that I moved away from all the dawgs in Vancouver.

Yeah, I was just signing out or something and I accedentally focused. But I was able to sign back in.

The short story, I was about to enter a 10ft deep trench. My legs slipped and i felt a pop in my acl, my leg gave out and i fell into the trench, landing on both feet but with the injured leg hyperextended.

Not sure how the break wasnt found in the xray but its obvious in the mri

Ive hurt my acl before so I was very curious why I was in much more pain than I should have been in lol. I wasnt even on any medication for the first few unbareable days.

I basically begged for pain meds from my dr. Started with t3s and that didnt help. Switched to percocets now and it works but make me feel pretty weird.

Ive never used anything stronger than t3s excpect for morphine a few times when I broken other bones skating

Still holds up as pretty gnarly. Hoping for a quick recovery in time for skateboarding season.
Still stoked that your job is covering it, pretty sick.

i've told the story a bunch about taking my 17 yr old brother to juarez a decade ago, shooting up in a culvert where little mexican kids would smoke speed and waking up on a sidewalk w/ my lighter and wallet gone.
i'd always assumed that the reason my left arm had limited mobility for the next 6 wks or so was i'd accidentally hit a nerve or muscle.
on mushrooms the other night i realized it was a stroke.
not stoked on that but kinda stoked i'm resilient.
my 20s were like sylvia plath when she kept trying to drown in the atlantic but she's buoyant so she'd float back to the surface.

Biking to work is a nice workout and makes the commute more fun, but I'm so sore right now. Did it again today, probably won't do it tomorrow. I'd love to skate tonight, but I'm really beat. It takes around 30 minutes. Today I did it in under 30. What sucks is that I leave work way after 10 pm sometimes, so I don't think I can do this on the regular.

I popped awake like ten minutes ago because I had a sharp fart, then tried to knock myself back out with bong hits, so I took that to mean you were turning 60 years old on Christmas and couldn't fucking believe it.
