My name is John and Im a Gasoholic

I never realized it would get this far. Sure my first experience was fun, driving around in our new car was great. But I always went back to my bike, it kept me in great shape. Riding around until the evening without a care in the world. The air was fresh and my lungs breathed it in fully. Who knew what the future would hold. I guess the first time I was aware of its pull was when I reached 16. I was now able to drive on my own and I was acutely aware of how it made me feel. I was becoming a man, the chicks were going to love me. I would be able to take them places I could never have done before. My self esteem was soaring higher with each drive. Little did I know though, I was becoming an Addict and my addiction was Gasoline. Not only am I poisoning myself but I am making everyone else around me sick too. It is so subtle, most people I know would say Im fine and I dont have a problem. But the only word that comes to my mind when they say this is "Codependent". You see it seems were all in this together yet none of us are willing to look at our "little" problem. Sure the birds and water creatures may have an issue, but were ok, right? Our "save a tree" bumper stickers fill us with pride. Even our recycling makes us puff our chests out. But is anyone really willing to give up their car? I doubt it! Maybe its time for Step 1.

Step 1

We admitted we were powerless over GASOLINE- that our lives have become unmanageable.

Sad to say, I am a gas-a-holic as well. However, I have noticed I have become lazy and in the past year and some I am working out like crazy to change that!

Still a gas-a-holic though.

Well I was all atwitter to read your polygamy post, you heathen, but I can't find it. And I don't have anymore time to look right now; I have to go fill up my Escalade with premium. ;)

Hey Shelle

I dont want to argue with you about your faith, but you may want to argue with wikepedia. I got some of the info. from there.

Mormon theology includes three main movements. By far the largest of these is the "mainstream Mormonism" defined by the leadership of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church). There are also two broad movements outside of mainstream Mormonism: Mormon fundamentalism, representing a conservative reaction to the LDS Church, and liberal reformist Mormonism, which advocates theologically liberal reform.

Is it wrong?
