13.1 Cringe factor and shifting the blame to alcohol

In this monologue I cover some shared cringe factor moment.  I asked for people to send in their most cringey or regretful moments caused by alcohol.   Some of these can make you laugh some of them make me want to cry.  We have all had them,  but how often do we laugh them off and feel terrible inside.  How often do we actually really attribute the blame to alcohol for these actions we regret.  This is not about having no accountability but it's about realising that none of these things would have been possible without alcohol.   When you really understand this you can then grasp that alcohol is not really your friend as so many of us think.  Would your friend make you do things that make you cringe,  things that you regret with all of your being?
I urge people to write down 5 things they blame alcohol.  This is a very powerful exercise and can help you release any self hatred stemming from questionable actions.  It can help you realise that alcohol is not serving you and can help you to release the strong hold it may have on you.
