I am powerless over Blogging - although my life is not completely unmanageable as the result

Have you ever decided to stop Blogging for a week or so, but only lasted for a couple of days? yes

Do you wish people would mind their own business about your blogging-- stop telling you what to do? yes

Have you ever switched from one kind of blog to another in the hope that this would keep you from blogging so much? yes

Have you had to have a blog in the morning during the past year? yes

Do you envy people who can blog without getting into trouble? no
At one time or another, most of us have wondered why we were not like most people, who really can take it or leave it.

Have you had problems connected with blogging during the past year? yes
Be honest!

Has your blogging caused trouble at home? no
(well yes, washing up still not done, late night on the blog)


Do you tell yourself you can stop blogging any time you want to, even though you keep blogging when you don't mean to? no I dont kid myself anymore

Have you missed days of work because of drinking? no

Do you have "blackouts"? no

Have you ever felt that your life would be better if you did not blog? at times

A.A. does not promise to solve your life's problems. But we can show you how we are learning to live without booze "one day at a time." We stay away from that "first drink." If there is no first one, there cannot be a tenth one. And when we got rid of booze, we found that life became much more manageable.

I tried to control my blogging, and don't enjoy it
Blogging has made me late for work
I haven't been to prison or hospital as a result of my blogging
I blog alone
I have tried to give up blogging and cant
I have tried to change my blog style
I've tried blogging
I've tried not blogging
I've tried only blogging on a tuesday,
I've tried blogging uptil 11pm
I've tried not blogging after midnight,
I've tried not reading other peoples blogs,
I've tried not commenting,
I've tried only commenting on 1 persons blog each visit
I've tried commenting on veryones blog I visit
I've tried just looking at how I score on top100soberblogs,
I've tried not checking my score on top100sober blogs...

All control, and unsustainable longer than a day!

now I just let it be, and blog when it comes and dont when it dont, long when its long, short when its short. I rarely save and edit, infact I dont, just write, re read and edit once and the hit publish...

I am now officialy unable to control my blogging,
I have daily blogged
I have topped up my posts and blogged more than once in a day
I seek out other bloggers like me
I stop for a while and then binge blog
I have tried complete abstainence.

It WAS the first post that did the damage!

sometimes, most times I blog what I think won't offend people. I'm a co-dependant blogger.

LAS said...

Ha ha ha - I don't think I'm quite there yet - I actually wish I could blog more!!! Be careful what you wish for I guess!

Dear Johno?
Have you been brainwashed? Your posts are quite bizarre!! Has your brain structure been altered with AA SATANISM? Jesus Christ is the only one who can deliver, you from your TERROR.

You are a terrified "little girl, who wants her MOMMY (AA). I will continue to pray, that you will be released from your "psychological prison"? You are not recovering, Johno!!

Dave, Rhonda, Kathy Lynne, & Las don't love you - they are DEMONS. I love you, Johno!! Do you love me?

I, MICKY, AM A GIFT TO ALL PEOPLE!!

Hey Johno, I guess that Al-anon has helped me not to control another person's blogging. I don't want to be a blogaholic. Good and funny post. Restraint of keyboard can be hard sometimes.

Christine said...

I can so relate but you knew that. I am a blogaholic as defined by not being able to control my blogging. Hi my name is christine do you have a room for me? I love it how that girl says she is a co dependent blogger. That I can not relate to! Leslie was so funny when she tried to tell me that now that I've started, I have a responsibility to those who read my blog to continue. I mostly don't even know who reads me.
Thisis so fun and so are you!
Now, lets see if I can get to the meeting on time...

Dear Johno,
Do you want to end like Christine? Her BRAIN STRUCTURE has been completely altered - she is INSANE.

See how she ends her DIATRIBE....Now, lets see if I can get to a meeting on time....absolutely BONKERS!!

I, MICKY, AM A GIFT TO ALL PEOPLE!!
