Personal addiction

I will admit a personal insight that many may not know. I have an addictive personallity. This is why I will never do any mind altering drugs and try not too drink that often (I do work in TV so not that often is still probably more than the average person).

This time of year however my biggest problem arises and I will announce my problem loud and with shame. I am addicted to pumpkin pie. Stop laughing, no seriously stop it! For some strange reason starting in late October and ending around middle of December. This year the Baker family went north to visit my brother and his fiance and the fiance's mother brought a pumpkin pie and it was GOOOOOOOOD. I had one piece then half an hour later i had another and ten I snuck a third.

For the most part I curbed my addiction for the next week or so. Then I went to a store called Deals and they had small pies for two dollars. I bought one and it was gone on the next day. So from that point on any chance for pie I was there.

Then there was this past week. I move into the temporary apartment and go grocery shopping and I do not know how I got there, but I ended up in the frozen pie section with a whole pumpkin pie in my hand. I take it home, bake it, let it cool and started eating it. I called the wife told her I had a pie and she says. "That better last till I get down there." Well it didn't. It last 4 days. Then I bought a second, it wasn't as good so half of it is still there.

Now here is the biggest problem, The Wife is driving down and will be in Raleigh tomorrow for Thanksgiving and she has three pies. Two of them are pumpkin! What the hell am I going to do? I can't eat that much pie! Well I can and probably will, but come on I shouldn't. Are there twelve steps for pie addiction or are they slices.

If you are wondering, no I am not eating one right now as I type. I'm waiting till 9:00. Who am I kidding 5 minutes from now.

Better pie than crack.

Sorry to hear about your Uncle Kenny. That's a tough call to make. Do you want to reach out to someone who may or may not want your help? No one really knows.
