Getting What i Deserve

Used 2013-04-18 Drink Up Butter Cup (AlKHall Anonymous sobriety recovery)

You Deserve a Break Today

When i was abusing alcohol, i often felt i’d earned the right to drink.

If something good happened, i got to drink to it and if something bad happened, i had to drink through it.

Now, i’ve lost the right to drink but have earned the right to be happy.

i came out ahead, because i’m finally getting what i deserve.


About Al K Hall

Like a battered drinker or a punch drunk boxer, i am here for another round. For those of you who don’t know me, i’m a semi-professional writer on the rocks and a non-practicing alcoholic (if after 30 years of practicing, you still can't do something well, it's best to just give it up). For those of you who do know me, thanks for stopping by anyway and where’s the ten bucks you owe me? Welcome to my Bar None. A hole in the wall where we can hang out and trade the kind of stories you swap only when you’ve had one too many and either can’t find your way home or are afraid to. Hell, it’s cheaper than therapy and plus the pictures are prettier. Here we’ll crack open bottles and jokes and ‘last call’ are the only dirty words you’ll never hear. Pull up a stool and make yourselves at home.

  1. Yes! Lovely summation. But that photo is just gross. Eeew. I hope it was a fake cow or the model was paid a shitload to do that…! xxx

  2. So how come it takes us so long to figure out we deserve to be happy?

    • That’s the kicker. There were so many things i wanted to be (right, loved, angry, cool, rich, beautiful, drunk…) that i thought would make me happy and never did. Turns out i just had to skip the middleman and go straight to being happy.

      Keep coming back,

      Al K Hall

  3. Ha ha ha ! That’s all I got! No cow jokes here, just happy! Lol!
