I Need a Drink



All of my world is empty tonight. There are feelings somewhere still, but they have scampered off to places I no longer recall. I regret nothing. How could I? The alternative would be to live a lie I am no longer prepared to live. And to die as someone I am not.

You are inside me now. Never forget that.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I need a drink...

Hang in there Jack.. lots of people out there do have you in their thoughts. Maybe pick up the phone and call a friend? I think you have many. Hang in there young one.

Jack,

An empty container is a vessel waiting to be filled. You have poured out your previous, unfulfilling life. Now take control and fill it back up with the real Jack.

Jack, I know the feeling.

Wow Jerry... Thats one of the better insights I've ever read about changing yourself!

Jack.... when you want a drink, have one :)

I could use a drink tonight, too. OJ on ice is my drink of choice.

Cheers, Jack.

@Jonna,

Thanks for the concern. I just don't work that way. Usually just deal with stuff on my own and occasionally chat with others once I've figured thigs out.

@Jerry,

That's what I'm trying to do. I feel like I've come very far, but hit a major wall on the personal front. Just need to keep on pushing forward...

@Dreamer,

Well, maybe it does feel good to know there are others out there. Thanks

@Miles,

Actually, it just turned out to be one single drink and lots of thinking. Not as dramatic as I thought it would get.

@Anonymous,

I might add a bit of vodka if you don't mind.

@Concojones,

Indeed.

Actually, I'll have a touch of vodka in mine, too.

Hope all is well.

Jack,

"hit a major wall on the personal front"

Like they say, all you need to get over a 10 ft wall is an 11 ft ladder. I know you will find that 11 ft ladder.

Hang in there!

@Anonymous,

Have good days and some bad days. It's all good.

@Jerry,

Looking for one as we speak.
