The Easiest Hardest Thing You’ll Ever Do

Used 2013-10-01 Easier to put it down (AlKHall sobriety recovery)

Easier to put down than bear

The easiest hardest thing you’ll ever do is get sober.

The hardest thing an alcoholic will ever do is put down the drink, because recovery means pulling weeds that are deeply rooted in our soul.

Fortunately, it’s the easiest thing we’ll ever do because we just have to

  1. Talk to other people
  2. Read the literature
  3. Find someone you admire and trust and follow their advice

Oh, and also, my sponsor tattooed my brain with one simple thought when we had our fist sit down.

“I don’t drink no matter what!”

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. http://about.me/AlKHall

  1. Perfect image.

    Also, at this moment, the ad showing up under the post is “How to Keep Extension Cords Untangled.” Which also seems somehow appropriate!

  2. A brilliant post! I have a really hard time doing stuff that I don’t really want to do. Quit drinking was not at all something that I wanted to do, my drinking had to be pushed beyond its limits, it needed to become acute before I did that one that I reeeaaally didn’t want to do.

    Thanks for sharing your words of wisdom, truly appreciated!
