    This is something I did this past week. I got Season 1 of Mad Men from the library and binge watched (no pun intended) three episodes in a row for four nights straight (there are 13 episodes.) The characters drink all day long, even at work. That and smoking. They get sloppy drunk, say and do stupid stuff, and make bad decisions often. It’s not a pretty sight. The funny thing is, when I watched it the first time back in the day, it made me want to pour myself a bourbon on the rocks. This time around, however, I was able to remain detached and was disgusted by the behavior of these people. They actually helped me maintain my sobriety. I began to associate a drink as a glass of stupid on the rocks.

    It’s interesting how your perception changes as you work through the program!

    That’s funny Chaz1023. When I used to watch people drinking on tv I usually (no always) had my own drink in hand and it made me feel like I was socializing with them. You are so right, now I watch them and think, what the hell are doing and what kind of message are you sending out. Never realized before how much drinking there was in movies and on tv. I do notice, however, that the hangovers in the movies last for a much shorter time than mine used to.
