If you saw the preview for tonights episode of L.A. Ink, you know it involves Kat having a scary hangover after yet another crazy night of drinking. She also mentioned in on Letterman recently, and actually got a chuckle from the audience, as I don’t think they felt she was serious or something. At any rate, Kat had this to say via a Myspace bulletin this week regarding her newfound sobriety.
Man! Never in a million years did I think I would ever make the conscious decision to quit drinking.. but the past few months of being hangover-free, and clear headed have definitely been a godsend..
Im trying to keep a constant line of communication with everyone, especially regarding upcoming episodes, as a lot of the ones in Season 2 tend to be more on the more personal and more sensitive side.. ( aside from some RAD tattoos, of course). Tomorrows episode.. its where i go sober..
Looking back now at the high amount of tequila i was consuming in a 24 hour period, i definitely wasn’t drinking to “party” anymore.. it was more of a way for me to cope with the real issues at hand, that i hadn’t been dealing with.
don’t get me wrong, some fun times were had for sure during those days, but then i started to notice instead of being a happy ass drunk all the time, i would turn into a total Debby-Downer towards the end of each night. Like, I’d be the girl who was SO wasted and would start goin off on some rant (probably about nothing), and end up in tears… ugh… totally embarrassing a lot of the times.
Finally, the day came when I had to seriously take a look at all the time and energy i had been wasting, and put myself in check. Without sounding like a goddamn AA meeting, I’m truly happy that I’ve chosen to walk away from that lifestyle.. It’s been a few months, (definitely lost count), which is a LONG time for the likes of me, and at this point don’t plan on goin back..
