"It Wasn't My Fault—The Booze Made Me Do It!"

There’s an old saying in Alcoholics Anonymous that says, if you sober up a drunken horse-thief, you end up with a sober horse-thief. So a couple of weeks ago, we heart about how Representative Foley’s problems are because a, he’s an alcoholic, and b, he was molested by a priest. This translates to “It was my fault but it really wasn’t my fault I did what I did.”

And now, here’s Mel claiming his tirade about Jews was the “stupid ramblings of a drunkard.” This translates to, “Being drunk made me anti-semitic.”

Anyhow, I still have this bridge for sale that runs between New York City and Brooklyn, and for cash, I’ll make you a super deal...

FWIW, I haven't had a drunk in about 6,500 days, Mel.

Gibson: I haven't had a drink in 65 days
By SANDY COHEN, AP Entertainment Writer 6 minutes ago

Mel Gibson calls his anti-Semitic rant following his arrest for drunk driving in July "the stupid ramblings of a drunkard." In an interview with Diane Sawyer set to air on "Good Morning America" on Thursday and Friday, Gibson says that though staying sober is a struggle, he has not had a drink in 65 days.

I originally got to AA in 1974 and drank after nearly 11years...AA doesn’t keep one sober. I actually attempted suicide before I drank, and after my suicide attempt was unsuccessful, I drank to kill the pain.

When I eventually recovered from my suicide attempt and "bust" I went back to AA, because it was familiar. I imagine AA to be quite controlling, which was very much like my history. < I spent all my childhood in orphanages in England and Australia>

In 1994 I started seeing a therapist and he helped me process my feelings. He is a recovered alcoholic and had processed his own history. Anyway, I did years of group therapy and EMDR. [Body Memory Therapy].

All I knew from my childhood was terror, pain, shame, and guilt and I was able to feel these feelings and get support by other people in my group. About 3 years ago, I dropped into a "black hole" and had to be hospitalized.... I had 4 months of absolute terror; I thought I was in hell.

One day I asked Jesus Christ {not a bedpan} to have mercy on me and forgive me my sins. Slowly all my fear and guilt has dissipated and today, I am just, Micky [A child of God]. What I had learned – my process in Hospital - that is what it was like for me as a child [METAMORPHOSIS]. I am not an ALCOHOLIC - I am a SINNER. AA [Satan] nearly got my soul but Jesus Christ the Son of GOD delivered me. I am blessed - because, I had to lose control to gain control [JESUS CHRIST] which has nothing to do with handing my will over to a higher power. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life John 3: 16].

Peace Be With You
Micky: You keep yourself sober. You make the daily choice to drink or not drink. No one else can do that for you. Others can help, but that's about it.

I'm glad you're sober...but it's your choice to see youself as a sinner. Seems like a slippery slope to be on.
