so sick of fucking booze
so tired of its stupid effects
i pour myself a big glass of lies
and i go dahn the booza
and i rabbit on with a loada bullshit
screaming in some pissed idiots ear
abaht a loada self aggrandizing tripe
bawling out my nonsense
trying to impress some sozzled ninny
or some drunken olde bag
i get red in the face
my skin coarsens
my features coarsen
my lovely olde smooth nose
becomes all bulbous n purple
my olde ticker shudders under the strain
my blurry vision becomes like underwater
my words come from a slurry place
i get confused and aggressive
so i drink some punch…oh ha ha ha
the booze reeks
its a poison after all
thats right not a drug but a poison
a little of that poison feels ok
a lot of that fucking poison n yer poisoned
booze frightens me as much as smack
smack is more addictive
but booze is more destructive
booze will fucking take you apart
booze will turn you into a fucking idiot
booze will turn you into the hoi polloi
booze is a bastard
AND I FUCKEN SEEN IT IN ACTION MY WHOLE LIFE
and i fucken sussed it out
and thank god my mum n dad never drank
and now the olde being himself
sure i have a sip or nip
i enjoy one drink or maybe 2
but never 3
but never before long after dark
never unless for an occasion
i wouldnt care if i ever saw or tasted booze again
it isnt good for musicians
it makes them sloppy
like it makes one sloppy at anything
i am so fucking tired of booze running this world
people come up to me n say
oh your skin is nice for an ancient mariner
i say
baby dont drink!
dont
dont
dont
think clearly for a change
smoke some fucking ganga
thats why god put it on this wunderful world
god gave us weed
god gave us cactus
god gave us mushrooms
yes god gave us wine too
but not gallons of beer n vodka and jim beam
i exhort you
all my readers
watch the booze
the booze is a slow destroyer
but shes steady as she goes
youll end up olde n ugly n spouting bilge
it dont help with creativity…its a fucking myth
have one drink
thats it
thats as good as it gets
or do you wanna get giddy n vomit
do ya wanna promise some s o b the bastard moon
do ya wanna wake up with some hag/beast and say oh ….no……!
do ya wanna blast your brain wrinkles into pickles
this stuff gonna do you over good
bah!
drinkers!
avoid me!

    Yep. Booze is bad news. And it’s boring too. I’ve never enjoyed it, minus a brief flirtation with absinthe which I consider to be different anyway. I think I had a tiny sip of wine a few months ago but I’d be under a table fast asleep with even half a glass of it. I have very little tolerance for alcohol. Or drugs, including caffeine. My body works best on a steady diet of water and fruit juice. Marc Bolan’s reaction the one and only time he took LSD would probably be mine also, so I’ve stayed away from all of that stuff. I’m much too scared.

    A ruminating post for me to read. Booze does destroy the body and can destroy the mind. It augments the girth. One bad night on it can destroy your life. Nonetheless, booze is glorified in America, England, Russia, Australia, Germany and even Japan.

    Conversely, booze allays angst, stress, anxiety and panic attacks. It can be medicinal if aptly used. The Queen MUM was a master at mastering her beloved gin.

    Pot is much less destructive than booze but I hate pot and choose booze. I don’t drive due to incapacitating agoraphobia. Thank God or Satan for that. I drink with my cat.

    I lost a girlfriend not too long ago, because I had way too much booze at a party, and it turned me into a raving madman. I never responded to it that way before, so that was goddam scary! It still gives me the chills just thinking about it.

    But I have to admit I love my booze. I usually have 2 or 3 drinks, friday and saturday respectively. At the end of a long, stressful week it just makes me feel good.

    Been there done that with the booze 20 years off and on the older you get the more it wears your body down I can barely touch it anymore and have lost a lot because of it. Guess I am a slow learner…It has the power to suck you in deep before you even know it.

    Well said SK. Le booze is scary stuff. As a rule, I don’t drink anything that can power my car.

    I do confess to a beer a week on Friday night at El Rodeo with the family (such a wild man I am) but only because I get to drink it out of a small glass boot, which embarasses daughters to no end. All the more reason to do it I say.

    Brien, you seem such a smart person, so much love to offer a loveless world, why such a stupid choice as booze? There are so many, many ways to beat angst, stress, anxiety, and panic attacks that don’t involve chemicals. Find them.

    It just happens to fit.. drinking as a sport is pretty ingrained culturally… I can see drinking at a rock bar being a race to who can get more drilled and be the funnest to be around… we know how that goes..
    But I enjoy drinks moderately and for taste.. it is a poison… The Native american sweats I have gone to are very steadfast to address the damages of not being mindful… this guy says it all >>>>vvv

    stealthblue | 26 February 2009 at 12:34 am #

    Hello All,
    Yeah, no doubt, I can’t say I am a huge fan of the hooch either. I mean, yeah, I’ll have a drink or two (tops) at a dinner “function” or special party or whatever. But RARELY do I get home and crack a beer even…especially these days. Flat out-I CANNOT drink like I did in my early twenties, and I’m only going on 37. (ouch)Nonetheless, I just don’t dig it anymore. Plus, I REALLY hate hurling! Plus it just brings out the “ass” in ya! I truly believe that if most people who abuse alcohol could actually see themselves (via hidden camera footage) they would think twice about exceeding that magic threshold known as common sense. Thankfully, I came from stock that never really viewed liquor as a necessary vice. All I know is that I really don’t like the way I feel AFTER the fact. My body just can’t take it anymore! I honestly don’t have a problem with folks getting a little giddy and all, havinga good time, etc. BUT, far too often, people are truly devastated by this demon. I also lost a few people to alcohol related diseases; liver failure, drunken-DRIVING (WHOLE other subject-I won’t even get started on that idiocy), etc., etc.

    ALSO, a little back story for you: I was married to a sweet little English Girl for just over two years many moons ago. It was a real “whirl-wind”, rock-n-roll type thing; fast, didn’t know WTF just happened, etc. Anyway, long story short, as it turned out, I had no idea who this woman really was. I just fell in love with a total stranger; that was my only offense. It’s neither of our faults, it was just REALLY, poor timing and HUGELY unfortunate circumstances. What was once just my sweet, non-turbulent life, was now a cacophony of music, love and screaming, NASTY fights with evil, hurtful words flying at me a hundred miles a minute…all laced with that damned British accent I had loved since boyhood. Talk about dreams coming true, becareful what you wish for and all that; yes, it happened. But that dream soon became a nightmare I wouldn’t wish on ANYONE, not even an enemy. Like I said, I married a stranger…with the best intentions of course and my beautiful, carefree world was shit on by a pretty devil in blue eyes. It was indeed a classic “should have known better” type of thing, but, THAT is what “love-blindness” really is. You only see and hear what you want to, or at least what is presented to you in the beginning. It’s ALWAYS shiny and new in the beginning, right? What I was naive to was the fact that this sweet, beautiful stranger was hiding her demons from me, and God, did she try to quash all that. But sooner or later, that paint is gonna fade and the rust shows a little more and more. My LEG (little English girl) was in a LOT of pain from apparently a pretty fucked-up past life-LONGER STORY) and our two worlds collided. Talk about talented too, a true lioness with singing and song-writing abilities that puts so many to shame. However, the babe could not handle alcohol, especially “clears”, and there were no limits once it got rolling. So there I was juggling a new, legal, honest-to-goodness wife, who as it turns out, was SEVERELY depressed(self-medicating on and off), and a few other issues I can’t get into. Imagine coming home from work and finding a near-unconscious version of this super talented, pretty woman alone, curled up in a fetal position in a tub with the shower running. The first thing I did was check her wrists. Thankfully, it did not end up that way. She just had a “spell” as she called them. Well, the spells started to increase and become much more dramatic, complete with many public displays of anger and dispair. I can even recall what were once my kind, sweet neighbors fully resenting our presence in the flat, or me being nearly arrested by some big, tough Chicago cops (who thought they were going to rescue the sweet damsel from the evil, “long-hair” (me of course)because of a HUGE Vodka-fuled fight on the damned subway. I just wanted to play “ostrich”, find a pile of sand, and plunk my head into it. Luckily, though, their “big heads” got the better of them and allowed us to be on our merry little way. I convinced them that my intention was to merely get her home safely and AWAY from the next bar, as it was her intention to continue that ride she was on.

    As you can imagine, things did not work out for she and I, but ironically in the end, we’re friends. She went back to the West Midlands and cleaned up. Her life is now 400% better (I trust). Kiddies, hubby, and all that life has to offer. Same with life for me, I was blessed again; sweet wife who with one sip of red wine and she’s out like a light! 🙂 Gotta house, two kitties, guitars, family, love, a car that runs, etc..Neither LEG or I became huge rock stars or anything, but I am thankful everyday for what I have and that I lived throught that, relatively unscathed. I mean, it could have ended up a LOT worse, eh?

    Anyway, sorry this got so long, but I can’t just sit here and bash booze without a reason. It’s like anything else, I guess; it works for some and others not.

    Much peace and love to all. Thanks to you Steve for much inspiration and blessings all these years. I still have yet to listen to the new records, but I promis I will and I have no doubts I’ll dig them, just like the rest.

    Many booze lovers and drug users are actually self-medicating to curtail depression and other psychiatric illnesses. There is still a stigma regarding mental illness that impedes people from visiting shrinks and other practitioneers.

    Just imagine that weed, the most harmless of “drugs”, stays in your system for thirty days. I literally know of dozens of people who lost their jobs due to weed even though the weed was not harmful to their private lives.

    CSTCoach | 26 February 2009 at 2:50 am #

    I agree and disagree with ya, esskay. Booze is a poison, no doubt about it. And a drunk is a sad being, self destructive and at the mercy of that bottle. Yeah, i hear ya on that.

    At the same time, i think our positions are likely similar. I like one or two drinks, three max. It’s a rare occasion – usually with one of my travel friends – when we pull all nighters and talk about books and music until we can’t slur anymore. But for me, it’s generally a nightcap. A nice glass of whiskey or cognac or wine. Or gin, of course. Classic cocktails with literary or film noir pedigree only.

    And wine of course. I think wine is magic. The rays of the sun congealed into tears. The divine gift of dionysus. Pure magic.

    As for the weed, i never got onto it. I found it always put me to sleep. That and the whole lung thing, with all the training i’ve gotta do it just seems a bad idea. Do you hack and cough from it when you swim?? What sorta effects have you noticed on your body? I’m honestly curious.

    And another thing…

    Pangaea is beautiful. Absolutely beautiful.

    The bass really comes to the fore – not as forceful and driven as Painkiller, but just as apparent. The music is beautifully layered. And your voice has that slightly raw edge, like cracked velvet, that you do so well. I love everything about the song.

    Great to see you going the e-route. I’ll of course buy the ep as well when it’s out, but i’m willing to pay for the download too, to hear it sooner.

    I passed by the itunes offering, cause they want you to download their software and format to play it. Glad you also offered the straightforward mp3 on the other site.

    an existential grief

    after all

    have you ever thought about

    something as simple as our greeting

    I’m too cheap to drink! One or maybe two once in a while is fine for me, and I do like the taste of some (but not beer — tastes too much like vomit for me. Ugh!), but overall I just don’t get that much enjoyment from it. And drinking until I puke (which I’ve never actually done — came close once, but didn’t) never has been my idea of a good time. That goes for ayahuasca too (although I do realise “a good time” wasn’t the goal with that) — when you blogged about your experience with it I was fine until you got to the vomiting part. I just cannot willingly take something that I know is going to make me puke my guts out. And then the hangover — only ever had one of those too, that one was enough for me to know I didn’t want another.

    I have plenty of other vices though. 🙂

    This blog is timely for me because last night I was picked up at an rbt unit and, after 2 glasses of red wine, I was ‘right on the edge’. Stupid. One light beer for me if I’m driving from now on, or soda’n’lime..

    Booze is a curse and I’ve seen it in action destroying lives and bodies. My old man went that way.

    I’ve wondered about the Church – you guys (this is so obvious it doesn’t really bare mentioning) were so set apart from the ozrock-boozy culture of the early-80’s. I assume the Church weren’t boozers – maybe that’s why you were the best!

    Suffice to say, the Church are living proof that a brilliant, magical band doesn’t need to spend 5 years playing the viking/thug bars of Adelaide ports to turn themselves into a ‘real’ band – you guys were already there…love that magic!

    Booze is bad but apparently it’s OK to get stoned everyday?
    One glass of whatever dose not alter your state of mind. Smoking weed however gets you stoned. You can be stoned or really stoned but you’re still stoned.
    People, for goodness sake don’t take advice from an ex junkie of 10 years who now smokes weed everyday. It’s sooo ridiculous for you to give advice Steven, but I guess its hard to see clearly when your stoned head is so far up your own arse. Thank god you don’t eat meat as otherwise you would not be able to breathe up there, then again maybe its time for a steak!!

    Having tried most other drugs in my time (bar heroin), that is the one that gives me most pleasure. All drugs taken to excess are potentially dangerous (i work in this field),& weed is no exception, believe me.
    ALL people who take any drug to excess are pains in the regal-backside. Rambling, irritating, psychotic idiots!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Everything in moderation they say…if you can stick to that I bet you will be ok.

    I tried Pot years ago, I mean i tried it and tried it again and again. It only clouded my consciousness. Hampered any progress with my meditations most of the times. Pot taken by some people can really mess up their minds, with others it is fine. But everything is poison if you take too much of it.
    Even water.

    I want to try those psychedelic toads one day…
    Sceletium is very nice once or twice a month. A bit of Sake with my sushi, the occasional glass of red wine with a good meal.
    yeah, i like that..

    p.s.

    Some of the best medicines in homeopathic practice come from the most poisonous substances in nature. Viewing a homeopathic pharmacy is like going on a global hunt for the most deadly agents in the natural world: toxic minerals like mercury (Mercurius), arsenic (Arsenicum), and lead (Plumbum); poisonous plants containing strychnine, such Nux vomica and Ignatia; hallucinogenic alkaloids from Belladonna and Datura (Stramonium); and animal poisons from a wide variety of insects (Apis, Cantharis), spiders (Tarentula, Theridion), snakes (Lachesis, Naja), sea animals (Murex, Medusa, Sepia), and scorpions (Androctonus). Two thousand or so additional mineral, plant, and animal substances of less virulence are also used in the making of homeopathic medicines.

    One good thing about not drinking is that doctors can’t blame on alcohol when you are sick. I once went to a doctor who was obsessed with suggesting that my problems were provoked by the bottle: “After Christmas your blood levels will be okay again”, he said. And he was right. After Christmas I felt better, but not because I “stopped” drinking. I felt better because my ex-wife stopped phoning me every night after eight hard months.

    You know there is a VAST difference from someone that is preaching and looking down on people and having a holier that thou attitude…
    this is not it……..
    Ive never tried smack..
    Ive buried three dear souls cuz of it..
    If I had only known i would have chained them to a tree..
    Sk has fought hard to overcome it..
    and I know this is where these SUGGESTIONS come from..
    Ive known first hand of families and good people being wrecked by booze.. and its byproducts…
    Cuz it serves as a MASK.. where people can hide.. from their problems, sufferings, and themselves..
    these arent bad people that suffer from the bottle.. but they arent fucking pretty either…

    One of my best friends needs about 4 beers a night to sustain mental normality… and it sucks
    The minute I stepped away from carrying on I saw it so clearly…
    my head hurt from withdrawals and then I started to feel the difference of not waking up to it…
    These are great suggestions…

    Renunciations are disciplines that consider others as ourselves… Its a hard road.. and these lil Ego’s are speed bumps… GEt it ON… peace

    I used to try and listen to “Sometime Anywhere” or “Priest=Aura” while under the influence of alcohol. I didn’t want to try any drugs. Scared and had no knowledge of their affects. Still that way today. Yes, I’m a boring person.

    Well if I could get hold of some fucking weed, I’d bid a fond farewell to my nightly cognac.

    Or have a joint with my cognac.

    Yeah, actually, that’s a bit more likely…

    Nuthin wrong with a drink. I hate it when my face gets all hot and red though. We all need sumthin, don’t we? I think if you smoke weed alot though, it does stay with you like an anti-depressant that has to have a built up level in your blood to work. Gotta take that in moderation as well.

    I like some booze, not a lot. Just like boobs, a handful is perfect. Guess that works out to 2 or 3 drinks on average.

    SK,
    I don’t know what it is with people who have nothing better to do than insult random people on a blog. It’s like beating you head against the wall. But that doesn’t stop people from doing. This world is full of complete losers who would rob you of your last dime or worst if they can get away with it. Even if you got nothing they still come around. They think you got something even if you don’t. It’s getting worse and worse here in America as those who pissed away their chances and those who are getting burned in this depression start trying to prey on others. We ain’t seen nothin’ yet. I think I need some Blues.
