Cheating on Sobriety

By falling off the wagon

Lies in a can. Photo by author.

This is a scary piece to write. Because essentially I’m publicly admitting failure, at least in a traditional sense. To make a long story short, I’ve been drinking again. Not a lot, but enough to feel like a failure. And a success. This is as completely open and honest as I can be. I’ve written about my drinking with the half-assed intention of abstaining, though I haven’t told you about my failures.
