A Sober Vacation Day

TTV - Sober And Naked - 1

First things first y’all! Today is Monday September 10, 2018 and it means that I have been sober for two months and twenty-three days or rather yet, eighty-four days in total and as always, I feel like Tony the fucking tiger… GRRRRREAT! No anxiety, no depression, no hangover, no regrets… I mean nothing!

On another sober weekend note! I have to say, that since the weekends are what I call my weak ends, because I only binge drink on weekends, today I have to mention, that I have been sober for thirteen weekends in a row. WOO-HOO! I have to admit that it hasn’t been easy, but one thing for sure is, that as time went by, it did get easier for me. I really don’t miss all the bullshit that comes after a weak end of binge drinking… like for example, the upset stomach, nausea, vomiting, headache, anxiety, depression and regrets. As a matter of fact, I decided to take today, my first no hangover vacation day in a long ass time. I’m just going to run a couple of errands with my wife and then hopefully, I will be chilling like a villain at home.

As for my loyal 1.5 readers, I just hope that wherever you are in this crazy planet of ours, you are having a good morning, good afternoon, good evening or good night. Always try to enjoy it to the fullest and don’t let nothing or nobody fuck it up for you no matter goes down.

A Tag Team Of Idiots

TTV - Idiots - 1

What up! What up! What up y’all! Today is Sunday September 9, 2018 and it means that I have been sober for two months and twenty-two days or rather yet, a grand total of eighty-three days. How do I feel? As Billy Crystal would say… I FEEL MARVELOUS!

On a government paid alcohol and weed note! When I was fifteen years old, I dropped out of high school and got my first factory job. That was thirty-three years ago. My point is, that almost every fucking day, on my way to or from work, I see a tag team of idiots, smoking weed or and drinking beer in front of the building they live in. You see, the shit that irritates my balls is, that these two idiots are younger than me, don’t want to work at all, live in a government subsidized affordable housing building and give shit back to the system that pays for all of their shits. These people are what I just love to call “parasites”. WHY? Well, another meaning for the word parasite is “A person who habitually relies on or exploits others and gives nothing in return”. You see, the thing that bothers the fuck out of me is, that the government kills working people like myself with high taxes, then they turn around and hand that money over to assholes like this tag team of idiots, who refuse to go out and look for work, but have time to get drunk and smoke weed on a daily basis. I mean… REALLY?

As for my loyal five to ten readers, I just hope that wherever you are in this crazy planet of ours, you are having a good morning, good afternoon, good evening or good night. Always try to enjoy it to the fullest and don’t let nothing or nobody fuck it up for you no matter what happens.

Not Giving A Rat’s Ass

TTV - A Rats Ass - 1.jpg

First things first my homeboys and homegirls! Today is Saturday September 8, 2018 and it means that I have been sober for two months and twenty-one days or rather yet, a total of eighty-two days. As always, I feel like Tony the fucking tiger… GRRRRREAT!

On a fat shaming note! About three or four years ago, I had what they call the vertical sleeve gastrectomy surgery for weight loss, due to multiple health problems that I was having. To make a long story short, I did lose around sixty pounds and after a couple of years, I gain some of it back. The whole thing is, that I just can’t understand, why some people who are overweight, let some stupid assholes online get to them? Like I’ve always said, if you feel good about yourself, if you are not hurting others, if you are not hurting your family or breaking any law… just fuck whatever society thinks or says about you. Hey look! Society doesn’t wake up at 4:00 am to got to the salt mines for eight hours from Monday through Friday… I do! Society doesn’t pay any of my bills… I do! Society doesn’t take care of my family… I do! You see, whatever society says about me or my weight, I use it to wipe my ass, and you can be sure that it will still leave my ass dirty. I know that I have to lose some weight, but you can be sure, that I will do it in time. Not when some asshole with problems and issues that he/she can’t resolve for shit, tells me to do it, so he/she can feel good. The one thing that I can say about those people is… they can go fuck themselves, because I don’t give a rat’s ass.

As for my loyal five to ten readers, I just hope that wherever you are in this crazy planet of ours, you are having a good morning, good afternoon, good evening or good night. Always try to enjoy it to the fullest and don’t let nothing or nobody fuck it up for you no matter what happens.

September Session With My Shrink

TTV - At The Shrink - 1

What up! What up! What up my homies! Today is Friday September 7, 2018 and it means that I have been sober for two months and twenty days or rather yet, a grand total of eighty-one days. As always, I feel like Tony the tiger… GRRRRREAT!

OK, on a monthly session with my shrink note! Yesterday I saw my shrink and as always, after talking with him, I felt like if a ton of bricks was lifted off of my shoulders. I have to say, that he was very happy and proud of my sobriety. He even congratulated me a couple of times for being sober for so long. He did asked me how was I doing on the weekends, since that’s the only time that I binge drink. I told him that I have been busy, going out with my wife to two wedding receptions and two get together with a few of my fellow co-workers. But other than that, I’ve doing pretty, pretty good. I mean, aside from my share of stinking thinking and a drunk dream, I’m really doing good. As a matter of fact, I specially don’t miss the hangovers, anxiety, depression and regrets that sets in after a weekend of drinking. The first few weekends were not easy for me, but right now, I’m chilling like a villain.

As for my loyal five to ten readers, I just hope that wherever you are in this crazy planet of ours, you are having a good morning, good afternoon, good evening or good night. Always try to enjoy it to the fullest and don’t let nothing or nobody fuck it up for you no matter what happens.

Opposites Do Attract

TTV - Opposites Do Attract - 1

What up! What up! What up y’all! Today is Thursday September 6, 2018 and it means that I have been sober for two months and nineteen days or rather yet, eighty days. As always, I feel like Tony the fucking tiger… GRRRRREAT!

On an opposites do attract personal experience note! My wife and I started dating when we were teenagers. After a while, I noticed that what I liked the most about her was her honesty, character and that she was a strong young woman. What I mean by that is, that she didn’t take shit from absolutely nobody. If she had to tell someone to go fuck his or herself, she did it without thinking about it and with no hesitation at all.

On the other hand, my entire life, I have been a quiet and shy person, with a lot of patience. Don’t get me wrong now, I do get mad and I do tell people to go fuck themselves, but that only happens when the person has been bothering or annoying the fuck out of me for a while. In my case, opposites do attract, because what I found in my wife was, someone who was my complete opposite. For example, I’m very shy and quiet, she’s not, she starts conversations with people who she had never met before in her life. I have a lot of patience, she doesn’t, she has a short temper and wants things done yesterday. I like to think, analyze and plan things first, she just goes for it without a plan. Even if someone makes me feel really, really bad, I try not to offend that person back, she doesn’t, she tells the person off in a very strong way, without thinking about the person’s feelings and making sure that the person understands, that she’s not going to take that shit from nobody. I like to keep my opinions to myself, she’s very opinionated and makes sure that everyone knows it. You have to understand, that my wife is the type of person, who would give anyone and I mean anyone the shirt off her back or the last dollar in her purse, just don’t get on her bad side, because she sure won’t take that shit from nobody… and from time to time, that includes our two adult children and me. You see, for many, many years now, I have come to believe, that the reason why we have lasted thirty years together, is because we are two totally and completely different people. What’s even funnier is, that it happened with my parents and is happening with my twenty-eight year old daughter and her boyfriend.

As for my loyal five to ten readers, I just hope that wherever you are in this crazy planet of ours, you are having a good morning, good afternoon, good evening or good night. Always try to enjoy it to the fullest and don’t let nothing or nobody fuck it up for you no matter what happens.

Doing Good Deeds

TTV - Good Deeds - 1

First things first my peeps! Today is Wednesday September 5, 2018 and it means that I have been sober for two months and seventeen days or rather yet, a total of seventy-eight days. As always, I feel like Tony the fucking tiger y’all… GRRRRREAT!

On a good deed note! On Monday evening, while in the kitchen smoking a cigarette, I had another interesting conversation with my twenty-three year old son, it was about giving to the less fortunate in the train and the streets of New York City. He was telling me, how he doesn’t give money to certain people, because he gets this feeling, that they are going to use it for alcohol or drugs. He also mentioned, that he doesn’t give money, to people who are representing organizations, because he feels that most of the money that they receive, goes to the top executives running those organizations, because they get big fat pay checks. I told him that I know how he feels, because I used to feel and think just like him a while back. But I did tell him, that a couple of years ago, my New Year’s resolution was, first, to stop judging the people or organizations that I gave money to. And second, to try to do a good deed everyday or whenever I could, by giving to the less fortunate in the train or the streets. I let him know, that I also go online and donate a couple of dollars to Operation Smile and The ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals). I specifically chose those two organizations, because the first one helps kids and the second one helps animals, and the way that I see it is, that they can’t help themselves, so I try to help a little with whatever I can. I do know that my son is a very smart kid and I believe that after our conversation, he will rethink the way that he feels about giving to the less fortunate.

As for my loyal five to ten readers, I just hope that wherever you are in this crazy planet of ours, you are having a good morning, good afternoon, good evening or good night. Always try to enjoy it to the fullest and don’t let nothing or nobody fuck it up for you no matter what happens.

Based On My True Story

TTV - Juice Film - 1

What up! What up! What up my peeps! Today is Tuesday September 4, 2018 and it means that I have been sober for two month and seventeen days or rather yet, seventy-seven days. As always, I feel like Tony the tiger… GRRRRREAT!

Back in 1992 an excellent film came out in theaters. The film was “Juice” and it touches on the lives of four black youths growing up in Harlem. Just in case you didn’t know, the film was Tupac Shakur‘s acting debut. The reason why I like the film so much is, because I can relate to it in so many ways. Why? You see, back in the eighties, when I was a teenager, I used to hangout at the park, get high on weed, get drunk on forties, go to the record shop and throw house parties with a group of friends from Da Hood. As the years went by, everybody started doing their own thing. I was a DJ and was offered a job at a downtown Manhattan club, which I turned down, because mixing music for me has never been about fame and money. Some of my friends ended up in prison for different crimes. But there was one, that just like in the film, he shot and killed another member of our group because of a drug spot dispute that they had going on for a while. The year was 1990, the victim was 19-year-old Mario De La Cruz and the shooter was Pedro Jimenez, you can read about his 2018 arrest here. I have to say, that looking back, I am very lucky to have listened to my mother’s advises about my friends and to have met the woman who helped me turn my life around and who was to become my future wife and mother of my children. The reality of it all is, that I’m glad, that in the end, my life didn’t turn out anything like the film. I am really happy and pleased, how my life turned out.

As for my loyal five to ten readers, I just hope that wherever you are in this crazy planet of ours, you are having a good morning, good afternoon, good evening or good night. Always try to enjoy it to the fullest and don’t let nothing or nobody fuck it up for you no matter what happens.
