Bright New Day.

It’s 10:00, FFS. HOW did it get so late so quickly? Oh, right. IT Mental Displacement (ITMD). Many people have brain numbing social media addictions. At least my morning addictions are based in IT.

I am required to think like I did when I was in my 30s and 40s. That’s not a bad thing. In those days, I was in less trouble.

It’s true I was a heavy drinker, but I was told I wasn’t an alcoholic. I didn’t have the capacity to be one. I used to worry about that, but it was at that time I eventually determined it was a state of mind rather than a physical problem for me.

I had cousins and a sibling who were both physically and mentally addicted to alcohol. They required drugs and therapy bigtime. I didn’t.

I didn’t need 12 steps. I had one: Just stop it. I did just that.

But I won’t stop my ITMD brain. Don’t even ask. There’s no big pharma solution for it, anyway.
