I was flattered, nervous, and ???? percent sober. Hell, I wasn’t even that manic.
None of that was enough to filter my vulgarity when we started talking about how alcohol blew up my life. It lasted about 5 minutes.
HOST: What made you finally give you alcohol?
ME: I was just so tired of that shit kicking my ass. Eventually I had enough and had to say fuck it…
PRODUCER: I’m sorry, we need to end the session. Language is not allowed.
Things are cool, they’re not pissed and I don’t think I did too much harm. I do feel bad for the assistant producer who invited me to the show. I tried to reach out and make amends on Twitter as soon as I stopped laughing.
@sobertony No problem Tony, congrats on 79 days and best luck for the future mate

What I Learned Today
- Even sober, I can make a fool out of myself at an international level.
- I’m not a recovery role model. I’m just a regular drunk, staying sober one day at a time.
- It’s fun to talk recovery. Maybe the podcast people will send me an invite.
- English people has the sexiest voices, even when they reject you on live radio. I think I’m crushing on the radio producer. ????
Despite the comic setback, I’m glad to enjoy this little sobriety adventures.
Maybe it’s time to make a list of the worst things I did while sober – this could be exhibit A.
