Robin Williams Quotes on Booze and Drugs 

“After I quit drinking, I realized I am the same [jerk] I always was, I just have fewer dents in my car.”

“Do you think God gets stoned? I think so, look at the platypus.”

“If you can remember the sixties, you weren't there.”

“Reality is just a crutch for people who can't cope with drugs.”

"I went to rehab [for alcoholism] in wine country, just to keep my options open."

"Being a functioning alcoholic is kind of like being a paraplegic lap dancer, you can do it, just not as well as the others."

"Beer commercials usually show big men, manly men, doing manly things: 'You've just killed a small animal. It's time for a light beer.' Why not have a realistic beer commercial, with a realistic thing about beer, where someone goes, 'It's five o'clock in the morning. You've just peed on a dumpster. It's Miller time.'"

And my personal favorite: “Cocaine is God's way of saying you're making too much money.”

Olympic Drinking 

Drinking Decathlon:

Hurling: Participants are judged on distance, consistency and odour in this projectile event.

Front Crawl: After losing the ability to walk, the athlete must crawl home without losing his keys or mobile.

Shot: Competitors must down the most measures without passing out, hallucinating, or vomiting.

100 Litres: Staying power and incredible bladder control are essential in this event.

Asymmetric Bars: Combines "propping up the bar" with a tricky reaching maneuver. Points are awarded on style and posture.

Rowing: With barely a nod to the Marquis of Queensbury rules, competitors must ensure that no one looks at their woman.

110m Hurdles: Often following the rowing event, the ability to out-run the law over any obstacles is tested here.

Weight Lifting: A test of both strength and friendship, participants must move their unconscious companion into a taxi.

Discuss: Competitors must talk on subjects about which they have no real knowledge. The winner is the last one to be able to form sentences.

3 Day Event: The purest of all endurance events, the action occurs between periods of unconsciousness.

Recovery Relationships 

Relationships in Recovery.
Many people new to recovery expect those around them to accept their clean lifestyle and to be excited for them only to discover lingering doubts, lack of trust, and skepticism from their loved ones. You long for people to see you as you are right now. Clean. Sober. Free. Working hard. You feel invalidated and shamed when they bring up past behaviors from your using days and you cry out for others to see how far you’ve come. What’s happening is that the wiring in their brains attached to you includes all those old behaviors of yours when you were using. And they are a bit afraid, rightfully so...

Addiction, Recovery, and Relationships.
So relationships in recovery can be a bit of a double-edged sword. Of course they are necessary and they can provide us with joy and fulfillment in many different ways, but at the same time, relationships can be somewhat dangerous, especially for the newly recovering drug addict or alcoholic. Let’s dig in and examine relationships and see if we can find some universal truths and any practical conclusions here: Overview of Different Kinds of Relationships in Recovery
