The term “fat, drunk and stupid” should sound very familiar. You likely recognize it as one of the many memorable scenes in the classic movie Animal House.
In the movie, Dean Wormer confronted the Delta Tau Chi Fraternity members on their appallingly bad grade point averages. Kent Dorfman, aka Delta House’s Flounder, actually had one of the better GPA’s at 0.2!
After informing Dorfman of his pitiful GPA, Dean Wormer looked up at him with disgust. “Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, son”, he advised. Right you were, Dean Wormer.
Of course, this site isn’t about losing weight or getting an education (although both are certainly damn good ideas). It’s about how to stop drinking alcohol. Or, at least reduce your drinking to a bare minimum so your life can improve.
As you look back on your life, how many things would have been better if you didn’t drink? How much more enjoyable would your life be right now if you didn’t have an alcohol problem? How much more can you still have in the future if you can kick this addiction?
Abusing alcohol is simply a waste of every good thing you ever had, or that you have now. Furthermore, it will hurt you in every way possible for all your remaining years on this earth.
Fat, Drunk and Stupid is No Way for YOU To Go Through Life!
To paraphrase Dean Wormer, getting drunk is just about the stupidest thing you can do – and that’s no way to go through life. Of course, the opposite is also true: getting sober is just about the smartest thing you can do.
Remember, for many people “getting sober” can mean simply “cutting back” their alcohol intake to a more manageable level. When you stop allowing yourself to over-indulge, you will take a big step towards restoring a bit of sanity to you life.
Perhaps you aren’t fat and stupid, but do you spend a good part of your time being drunk? If so, then maybe it’s time for YOU to smarten up by getting your drinking under control. ♦
